For those of you who have been encouraging me to get a “blog” — TA DUM!!! I’ve finally made my first step toward learning how to blog and with Genevieve’s help & expertise, I’m off and running — well crawling. OK — with that announcement – I’m ready to begin.
This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a technique challenge — Watercolor. I decided to use the Stampin’Up!

I also used our new In-Colors (Poppy Parade and Pear Pizzazz. The textured embossing gives the tulips dimension. I really enjoyed making this card while chatting on the phone with Gen.
