Mojo Monday 397.....

Hello everyone: I finally got around to post this card for Mojo Monday 397, I got a bit delayed by "stuff", to long to explain, mainly I've been doing some reorganizing and cleaning up my craft room, (among other things), in a few days, you will see why.
Ok, this is the card I made for this challenge and, once again, I use two of my most favorite, current SU sets, In This Together and Corner Garden.
The pretty girls and gorgeous flowers on this stamp sets are so beautiful, versatile and fun to color.  Corner Garden is a big stamp, you can use it whole or in parts.  I love adding a bit of bling to the girls outfits, like I did here.
I hope you like this card, as always, I used Stampin Up! write markers and the Aqua Painter, my constant companions for water coloring.
Thank you for visiting my blog, I appreciate your comments so very much, if you have a question about this card, please don't hesitate to ask me, I'll be more than happy to answer it to the best of my ability.
Till next time, happy stamping.
Maria.

A really special day!!!!!

Hello everyone: Well, as I said, today is a very special day for me as I have the honor to be invited as the guest stamper for The Retro Rubber Blog May Flowers Challenge.
I feel so excited and happy, this is an unexpected and delightful surprise and I hope the card I made for this challenge lives up to the privilege of this invitation.
Here is my card.
When I learned that this weeks theme was May Flowers, I immediately thought of Tulips, they are the first flowers that bravely start peeking out of the frozen ground and right now, they are in full bloom.
As always, I used my Stampin Up! write markers and my aqua painters to color this image, I just love how the inks blend so beautifully when you water color with them.
Here is a close up of this beautiful blooms, I added a bit of Wink of Stella shimmer to each.
I hope you like and enjoy this card as much as I did creating it. Here is the Retro Rubber banner that inspired this card.RRCB14I want to thank all of you at The Retro Rubber blog for choosing my Teddy and Train card as a winner of the last challenge and for your sweet invitation to be your guest stamper for this one.
