Let the fun begin – Colorful Birthday Circles

So, today I hear the mailman drop some big mail though our slot…I make a mad dash, not sure why…must be my craft radar…and wouldn’t you know it…my Stamp Of Approval Young at Heart Collection is sitting right there! Yup, I’m out of the penalty box!!! Customs FINALLY decided I get to play along with everyone else – so I quickly open up my package, knowing I have crafty goodness just begging to be colored, stamped, inked, monoprinted and watercolored. Here is my first creation.


I wanted to share it quickly with you along with a reminder that if you haven’t hopped along with the blog hop from the other day…be sure to do so leaving comments all along – Catherine’s giving away two boxes at 9 AM EST August 4th! Click here to start the Blog Hop with Catherine Pooler

I filmed this project, so look for a video on my YouTube channel in the next few days too! Here’s some watercolored Birthday fun.


I used the circles from the awesome set Ring in the Celebration by Winnie & Walter. I knew when I saw those circles I just had to do a little watercolor smooshing. And isn’t this greeting set by SugarPea Designs just amazing!!

Hope I got your color juices flowing today! If you have no idea what Stamp of Approval is…be sure to click here to find out! There are only a few boxes left…so don’t miss out on all the fun!
