Hello friends.  We had our first little taste of cold and snow this morning.  Just a
light coating on the bushes and trees, actually looked pretty, but it was really cold out.
Guess we have to expect it, since Thanksgiving is coming up shortly.

I have been practicing water coloring.  I love to color, and before stamping did
decorative painting, but never got the hang of water coloring.  I even took a class
at a stamp show, despite some great tips I learned, never was happy with the results.
So I set my mind to watching a couple of you tube videos and bought a set of
opaque water colors.  Some of the images went in the trash, but I liked how
this one turned out.  I'll just have to keep working at it.

Sentiment Stamp - Stampendous 
Spellbinders Oval Grand Dies
Watercolor paper

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great Friday. Until later....
