April Giveaway Ends April 15th... and Wine Diva!

My older sisters birthday card: Art Impressions "Wine Diva" stamps, Zig Clean Color Real Brush on Ranger watercolor paper. Sentiment embossed with Hero Arts white powder on My Favorite Things Die-Namics Blueprints #26 ribbon die. Wink of Stella glimmer pen and Glossy Accents on wine glass.

Hello and welcome!

Just a quick post to remind you that the April giveaway ends this Thursday at midnight, Alaska time! Here's what you can win:

Waffle Flower "RAIN CHECK" stamps, Freckled Fawn FUN paper clips and FRAMES wood chips embellishments, October Afternoon SUMMERTIME pillow puffy stickers, and Sizzix BRANCH WITH LEAVES die.

I'll be announcing the winner on Saturday, April 16th! You can enter in four different ways so go to this blog post to see how!

My card is for my OLDEST sister's birthday tomorrow. I really LOVE these sets from Art Impressions that have the older ladies laughing it up! It reminds me of my two sisters and I when we get together... which we are doing next month and I'm so excited to see them! I'm enjoying watercoloring even though I'm not very good at it (practice makes perfect... right!?). This piece turned out better than I thought it would and I'm learning the way the Zig brushes work and I really like how easy they are to work with compared to Copics. I just can't seem to get the blending down well with Copics! Maybe they aren't my thing and I need to realize that! But watercolor is very forgiving so I think my Copics may be in one of my giveaways this year (or I'll be selling them)!

Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to enter to win the April giveaway!

God bless your day!
