Two by Two

Here's another NBUS.  I've lost count of how many I've used this summer.  And, did you notice, I used some of that hoarded DSP! 



I hadn't used this stamp because I shy away from Watercoloring.  I don't know why because I really enjoy it after I get started.

The layout was inspired by this card by Wendy Wexler.

Melissa, at CASology, just had a baby girl.  They're having a baby shower for her over there this week.  Welcome to the world, Bryna! Congratulations to the proud family.

And I'll take this over to Pixie's Crafty Workshop.  I  haven't seen signs of the water guns on the playground this week, but the ark might be a safe bet just in case!

Almost forgot the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge.  This week it's Anything Goes! Gotta love that!

This fits for a couple of the Dare to Get Dirty challenges at SCS.

I didn't keep up with the ink refills that I used.  Sorry about that.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Gorgeous card Bonnie and beautifully coloured too. A perfect card for a baby, and I love the way the scalloped circle stands above the card. Great paper too.

It's red hot here so water gun fights would be very welcome - like the comment about bringing the Ark :)

Hugs, Di xx

Yet another adorable card. Love your layout and that sweet stamped image. Beautiful water coloring. I shy away from W/c, because my efforts always disappoint me. Yours were wonderful. A cheery color scheme to welcome a new baby, and love this image. Sigh, read that it is retired... TFS
