Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

It's been busy around here! Now that I've been vaccinated, I'm out and about more.

I've seen more people in the last week than I'd seen in person for the last year.
It's a good feeling and it's like no time had gone by.

I hope you're getting to the spot where you can get out and visit family
and friends again.  Please do it safely for yourself and those who haven't been
able to get their vaccination yet.

Here's a very simple card with a little watercoloring.

I used Gina K. Designs Warm Glow ink to stamp with for a
no-line coloring look using Zigs for the coloring.

I die cut the piece with this beautiful Elegant Stitching Frame from Penny Black
that was a wonderful gift.

This is so pretty Bonnie!
Glad you have been able to get out.
Here we are still have restrictions. Only allowed to exercise with those from your own household or one person not in your household and we must stay local. From the end of this month 6 people will be allowed to meet outdoors if the cases continue to drop and there is to be no travel abroad. So we are still a long way from anything close to normality and there are some hints that we may have to continue to wear masks for a considerable time.
All I want is a hairdresser!! (Can open from 12th April - I'll be like the Roadrunner getting there!) x

What a lovely, lovely card Bonnie and so Spring like...totally makes me smile!! Glad to hear you've been able to be out and about...I'm sure it feels wonderful!! I get my 2nd shot next week and then two weeks from then I'll be clear to go out and about...although our numbers are rising big time here in Michigan and that's NOT a good sign! Take care my friend!! Hugs. :0)

Pat said...

A very pretty PB stamp Bonnie and love the bright and beautiful pink with the blue background and such a pretty ornate edge to the mat. I'm glad that you are getting out and about more and meeting people. I have forgotten what it feels like to socialise and as Viv says the restrictions are very limiting at present, and I have got a hair appointment on the 21st of April and can't wait to get my unruly locks sorted out..lol. I just hope things don't change again in the meantime otherwise I might in desperation get hubby to shear it off..lol. x

Lovely watercoloring and such a soft look to it. That frame was a wonderful gift and looks so pretty mounted on the dark paper.

What beautiful blooms you have there, my dear! I just never could get those Zigs to work - you have a very magical touch, my friend!

JoAnn said...

Beautiful card and beautiful watercoloring. You always do such a good job watercoloring. I am not that good. :(
Glad you are getting out and about. Take care.

Sandy said...

Beautiful card Bonnie. I know you are tickled to be seeing friends and family again. Our family does not live anywhere near us and to be honest, we are not in the mood to travel and stay in motels/hotels. Your flowers are very pretty - love that red/pink color.

Susan said...

Your watercolouring just gets better and better, Bonnie! Love this card with the shades of pink in the flowers and the soft blue wash in the background.

So glad you're able to get out and see friends now you've had your vaccine. Can't wait for mine!

Brenda said...

It's so nice to get out with family and friends now I agree Bonnie! I have enjoyed it too and it's been a little emotional as well as I've missed the people in my tribe so much. Still, like you said, we need to be careful for the ones who haven't been vaccinated. But it so feels good to get out and about once again!

Your card is stunning! I love that image of those blooms, they are so pretty and once again you have watercolored it to perfection! Hugs, Brenda

Mac Mable said...

I am so glad that you can safely go out and about a little more Bonnie...It's been a long year. I have just had my first vaccination but won't be venturing far before my second and that will be awhile yet x. What a beautiful card and the water colouring is so pretty Bonnie x.

Nstiz said...

Good golly, Miss Molly! Your coloring just gets better and better! WOW on the coloring of this. Again you created that gorgeous soft background too. Love this!

It must feel so good to see your bubble grow Bonnie:)
Wonderful no line watercolouring, it's on my list of things to try.

Gorgeous flowers, Bonnie! So glad you're getting able to see people again. And glad you played with us at Krafty Chicks this week. Hugs, my friend.

Beautiful card my friend... I'm so happy for you that you are out and about... I don't get my 2nd vaccine until May so I'm still home bound for now.

This card is so beautiful and elegant, Bonnie. Your no-line watercolouring is amazing. The blooms look so real and I feel like I could reach out and touch them through the screen. I'm in awe of your watercolouring, my friend!! xx

Beautiful no line coloring here, Bonnie! This is greeting card perfection! We are awaiting our second shot in mid-April. Just getting started and then scheduled for the second was a good feeling!

Bonnie, I'm glad to hear that you've vaccinated and that you are out and about more.
The blooms are so lovely and your no-line watercoloring is beautiful! Love the pretty shades of pink! The clear dew drops and the linen thread are nice finishing touches.
