Color It


Welcome everyone to the Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Saturday Blog Hop!  This week our theme is Color It.  Can you believe it…it’s the last Saturday in February!  And yesterday in Ohio…it was 73 degrees!

Okay…before I get to my card, I need to apologize.  On a good day I’m REALLY bad at water coloring.  When I am sick I am TRULY HORRIBLE at water coloring.  Been fighting bronchitis for 4 weeks now and half the time I think I’m losing.  So…this was the best I could do and I do apologize!  TOTALLY uninspired!  But I know the rest of the team did a TERRIFIC job on theirs!


And now for the painful details…

  1. Mary, so sorry to hear you have been sick for so long. With the nice weather we are having, no one is going to stay well. To many changes and our bodies can’t handle it. Loved your Hey Chick card. Just love that stamp set. Have not played with it to much. Hope your feeling better soon. Maureen Wheatley

  2. As you know I just LOVE these chicks! Love how you’ve put them together here and they look lovely. Bronchitis or not, you did a great job coloring them. That’s what is so nice with watercoloring, it doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful!

    Hope you feel better soon!
