Water Color Bear!

Hey, it's Water Color Month!  

Ok, let's back up about six weeks and reminisce (a bit of sarcasm here, hahaha) about my trip to Cleveland.  Kelly (my wonderful husband) and I took a trip to Cleveland Clinic to figure out some health stuff.  I was poked, poked, and poked some more.  Yikes....lots of neuro stuff with needles!  I did not enjoy
this vacation, but since I was a good patient and did what I was supposed to do, Kelly took me to Blick Art Materials and out to lunch!  Whoo hoo!  

I've always wanted to try the Derwent Inktense Pencils; so, I purchased a small bundle on sale ...as well as some other goodies!  I must admit, I thought Blick's was only on line; I had no idea they have physical locations since there are none around me in Indiana.  I had a great time browsing around the store!  

Fast forward a few weeks when the new Polkadoodles Great Outdoors Critters Cardmaking Collection was released.   This collection is waaaaay too much fun and the perfect opportunity to try my new pencils!  Yay!  

Beary Great Day Stamp Set has 14 stamps included; I used eight of them on my card.  The background paper is also from the collection and there are eight gorgeous patterns in the stack.  The collection also comes with 2 additional Stamp Sets, 3 Die Sets, and another Paper Stack in Solid Colors.  

Stay tuned for more water color adventures this month!
