Your card is gorgeous, Jaydee! I love how the flowers jump off the soft background and the little pop of gold in the baker's twine is a wonderful touch. Your video...what can I say? You are so lucky to have so much nature right outside your door. I'm so jealous. We have frogs in the greenbelt behind out house but they are occasionally interrupted by a raccoon "disagreement". Nothing like the soothing sounds of nature being interrupted by high-pitched screeching. Ack!

There's so much to love about this card, Jaydee! With all the water you used, I would have thought you'd used watercolor paper, and I was surprised to see you used whisper white. Also, the shadow looks so realistic I had to read to see if you cut it out. Then there is the little twine bow... All so beautiful! Great, subtle use of the colors. Love it.


I too love So Saffron and today's card. The frogs video is charming! It did remind me to check out your other videos (bow making reminder needed) and somehow I had missed your ribbon rose video. So wonderfully helpful and I made a yellow rose - my favorite. Thanks ever so much.

Gavin here today and tomorrow after shortened school days still. He is doing great!


I'm always inspired by your card creations, but I just have to let you know how much I love the pictures of the woodlands and the creatures - the video is great! Oh, and I can't forget to mention the kitties - love to see them too!


Major bummer! That's what the sign says as it tells me that your video can't be played with my current setup. Major bummer indeed. I did so want to hear all those wonderful Mother Nature sounds. You and Lou and doing such a fabulous job of bringing that area back to its original (and perhaps even better) state. What a work of love. And your payoff, of course, will be even more native birds and other animals to delight your senses.

I can't believe it's already two years since you moved in. Wow! Almost daily, I'm reminded of how fast time goes by.

I love your card background. Those watercolour classes are really inspiring you. I saw a very interesting background on one of Ann Schach's cards, (http://www.stampinchic.com/2014/05/the-stamp-review-crew-by-tide-edition.html) but couldn't figure out how she did it. When I asked she told me that she used the background of the rose flower in the Stippled Blossoms set, stamped off once or twice before stamping it on the card. You pros make those backgrounds such an integral part of the card; it makes a huge difference.

Thanks for your daily dose of card and nature beauty...not sure which I love more.

Love this color combo Jaydee. Gorgeous card from the watercoloring class techniques! Loll xx


Oh my gosh, loved your video. Living in the city, we don't get that. How marvelous to hear that. Lovely card too!

Hope Everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day. Spent my day planting roses and fixing and repairing and cleaning up things around here from the wind damage that we had received the other day when the storms went through but also received 3 inches of much needed rain.
Beautiful card Jaydee. Love the softness of it along with your little touches that you add. Simple, but yet it's elegant.
Enjoyed listening to the video. Have listened to yet a few times already.
Y'all enjoy your day and have a wonderful evening

That was a beautiful video to go along with your beautiful card!! Watercolor is so popular these days. I guess I'll have to take the plunge soon!

Oh my gosh, Jaydee your backyard in the morning sounds just like mine at night (minus the birds!). I'll have to share all the spring peepers with you! Love your sensational saffron card and the twine bow is THE perfect touch! ((Hugs))


Oh wow! The cacophony on your back deck--INCREDIBLE! How can you even stand the beauty and wonder of it all??? :o) It's incredible!

Your card is delightful. I love the little touches you always add, such as that tiny piece of baker's twine made into a little bow. Your coloring is wonderful and I really do love the color combo. Hm...maybe I can find time to play around with it sometime this week...you know, because we're not busy around here or anything like that. ;o)


P.S. Hi Lou! :o)
