Watercolour

Hello there ...

It seems ages since I posted and yet it's only a few days... I've been kept busy with these


and this


You may remember that earlier this year I made "Save the Date" cards for my friend, well now I'm onto the invitations... 50 down and 50 to go.
And Missy ... She's discovered the back garden and is in every nook and cranny... We don't like to let her go out to the front of the house because she can really get lost, I mean that's how we ended up with her, but one quick dart and she's over the fence! 
So I am run off my feet... It's worse than having a child!

I do however, have a card to share that I made a few weeks back when I was playing with my watercolours


Very similar to the others I did but I find them addictive (and simple to make)


Well, I'd better get on with my invitations and catching up with your blogs... I hope you are enjoying your day 

Till soon, be safe

Wow Ros! You sure have been busy! All your cards are so elegant! Love the inky background and the pretty vellum sentiment strip! Hope you have a great weekend!

Oh what an incredible friend you are, Ros! I can't imagine making 100 Save the Date & 100 invitations even if I just did 1 layer stamping! These are absolute treasures & so very special! Your kitty is so cute--I can just imagine how quick & curious she is--better you than me--haha! Brings back memories of not sitting down for more than a minute at a time for 6 months when we brought Fritz home! Your watercolor backgrounds are all stunning--love the white on this one & the gold on the one I have! How do you get that look? You truly inspire me & I treasure your friendship!

Oooh, so much to look at and love today! That's a lot of die cutting and ribbon and ribbons slides, but the invitations are gorgeous! Missy is pretty as a picture and this picture is certainly darling. You know how my heart belongs to critters. From what I've seen it appears you such a lovely home. I feel like I should go redecorate something now. Finally, I'm just smitten by all your watercolor cards and this one is so fresh and pretty with the blue and green and the white splatters. I see some script, too. Nice touch! I just got some Gansai Tambi watercolor paints and I can't wait to use them, but I need a good chunk of time to sit down and get acquainted with them. Having some busy days.

I've been making 'save the dates' this week... I don't know about you but I find it very boring making the same card over and over again!

Anyway the invitations are stunning and your watercolours are absolutely gorgeous.

Your cat's quite cute too!

Great work with those wedding invitation. I can imagine having Missy at home, I remember taking of Papi when he was 9 weeks old, just like taking care of a baby.
Love your beautiful card with gorgeous background!

Yes, I remember the save the date cards - and the invitations are just as gorgeous! One hundred!! But what I really can't stop looking at is Missy - she is sooo cute. Should she decide to move to Germany, let her know where to find me...

Fabulous card, amazing and beautiful....Creative and loving pretty the colours. Stunning invitations, you are doing a fabulous job x Missy is adorable x

Diane said...

Goodness my friend you have been busy, busy, but they are beautiful invites! The water coloring is beautiful as well, such a pretty blend of colors. As for 'Miss Missy" well I can relate....when 'our Freckles' appeared and we took her in we forgot how 'naughty' kitties can be! But we love her and she still rules the roost!

Pia S said...

The invitations look so elegant. It's hard to come up with ideas for cards to mass produce with a design that stands out, but you've nailed it with these! Beautiful watercolored card too. Yes, it's quite addictive using watercolors. It took me some time to try it, but now I'm hooked.

Stella said...

OMG Missy!!!! I tend to buy a ticket to come and squeeze her; she's
a-d-o-r-a-b-l-e!!!!!
She 's keeping you on her toes; hang in there:) Is your back less painful? Are you recovered?
I've seen the first card you made for your friend and these invitations are jaw dropping gorgeous. Perfection. Elegant. And so chic.

And it feels like I am always writing the same but your watercolouring card is pure beauty...sigh...
Big hugs!

Where to start?! I have to start with the end and tell you that I am head over heels in love with your beautiful card! Every inch of it! I also love the invitations you are making. The bride and groom must be so appreciative!! Finally, Missy. Sigh. What are we going to do with Miss Missy?! I'm no help, I'm afraid. She sure is beautiful and I can see why you wouldn't want to lose her! Hugs, Darnell
