Watercolor Puppy and Bench! New from Art Impressions

Hello Ai fans!

Who doesn't love a new release from Art Impressions!?

I sure know I do!

Today I'm sharing the cutest new releases from the watercolor series!

I've used 4959 WC Dogs Set

I also used two previous releases...

I just love dogs so much so I'm in love with this new set!!
I have to be honest...watercoloring doesn't come natural to me.  I made two versions of this both of which I tossed out. (well, recycled)  I went to bed angry. I woke up the next morning feeling refreshed and this scene just sprang to life and I'm very happy with it.  With some trial and error I always feel like I've created something to be proud of.  Just don't give up if you don't love what you create at first!!

Here's the inside of my card.

Marvy Markers:

 6, 11, 12, 15, 18, 24, 27, 40, 45, 55, 57, 78,

Thank you gift

 Hello and happy Tuesday!

Today I'm sharing a jar that I decorated for a friend.
She did me a favor so I wanted to give her a little thank you.

I used some ribbon that I've had a round forever.
The paper pad is called Woodland Forest from Pebbles.

I filled it with some Spiced Pecans that I made.
You can find the recipe HERE.  Just watch them carefully when baking because every oven is different.  I cooked them a couple minutes less than it said and I still had a few come out a little burnt.

Haunted Halloween Mansion from Art Impressions

Hello Ai fans!
Art Impressions has added another "house" to their collection.  It started with the Cottage and now they have this fun Mansion!  I used the Mansion and the accessory set on my card.

The set comes with shutters some of which I hung a little wonky since the house is haunted!


There are several fun, interactive parts on the house that you can open up or look through.  I have some of the characters "hiding" behind or in them.

One really great thing about these sets is that they come with dies so that they can be cut and assembled quicker.
