Triple Watercolor Trio

I debated whether I should I put a sentiment on the front or leave it blank. I have decided for now to leave it blank and even the inside... it seems I have lots of cards, but never the right one for the occasion. I hate giving away a card if I don't have a duplicate. (even if I have a picture). Which means I have to make double of everything. UGH! So my new goal is to make 10 of everything. That way I can use them and not feel i have to hold on. :)

Watercolor Trio has been one of the most difficult sets for me to use... I don't think I am real impressed with it at all. But this turned out cute. Paper sure does make a huge difference.

Missing friends...

My family just moved about a month ago from IL to KY -We are finally a little settled and have most of the boxes unpacked. This leaves me with quite a bit of time to get back into card making~ and boy did i miss it!!!

Here is 1 of the cards I made...

Recipe- all SU
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Rose Red
Stamps: Vintage Vogue, Watercolor Trio and Whimsical Words
Paper: Sweet Pea DP

I have had such a HARD time using watercolor trio - All i used was the stem of the stamp to go with the flower from vintage vogue.

Ever since the butterfly emboss/die cut came up - I LOVE BUTTERFLIES. Crazy, I know! But I have never liked butterflies or hearts for that matter. They are just too girly, I guess. Or it's what every one gets tattooed. So I just didn't like them! But now I want butterflies on everything... LOL - Maybe I just need to have a little girl!!! :)
