Freebie Friday on Catch the Bug

Well it's Friday again - YAY - and that means that Jodie has some more treats to share on Catch the Bug! I used the collection of flowers to make these notecards:








I always thought that using watercolors with images printed on an inkjet printer would make the black bleed and run - guess what - it doesn't! I had my watercolor crayons out from our downline make and take and just thought I'd give it a try and was so very pleasantly surprised when it worked just fine. These are all made on a base of Brilliant Blue (I will be sad to see this color retire) and matted on various matching SU colors. They are just blank inside so they can be anything at all depending on need. The ladybugs were colored with markers and the background color in the rectangles was colored on the computer, but everything else was colored with watercolor crayons and an aqua-painter.

DH and I spent a very enjoyable afternoon at the ballpark yesterday (even tho the Rockies lost) and I got my first blush of sunburn. The countdown is beginning, even though he hasn't set a departure date yet, for his trip east to spend the summer on Belmira. He's going to start a blog even!

I'm also going to play along with Ali Edwards Week in the Life project starting on Sunday. A great challenge to use photography, scrapbooking and journaling to chronicle a week in your life. We'll see how it goes!

Thanks for visiting today! There will be blog candy this weekend so be sure to stop back by and visit.
