Hello Friends,

Another Monday, and life is good our temps are back in the normal high 60's low 70's. I have to say those 100 degree days really are tough to take.  Most people in our area do not have air conditioning, because we normally have a sea breeze going and the few days, if any in the year the temps are very comfortable.  Hopefully that was it for this year.

I have tons of birthdays in the family in May, so you will be seeing a lot of birthday cards this month.

Here is one I made this morning. Watercolor backgrounds seem to be real popular right now. For this card I used PTI Classic Kraft, terracotta tile and CTMH Lagoon. The water color paper I used is 90# Strathmore.  I really prefer 300# WC paper, but for cards the weight of the 90# is best for my needs. The button is from my ETSY store and the twine is from my stash. Card stock is recollections and PTI stamp set is PTI "beautiful Blooms".


Do these colors really say Happy Birthday?  Are you going to give the water color background a try?
