Now that Operation Write Home has stopped accepting cards, I plan to send more to friends just to keep in touch. This card combines three challenges I've not played along with in a long time.

Color Throwdown (oops, I was too late to link up to the challenge)
Less is More
The sentiment and flourish gems are both from CTMH (retired).
I signed up for Online Card Classes: Intermediate Water Coloring. Pre-class homework is to create color swatches of our watercolor paints. It didn't take long to realize that my paints were of such inferior quality that I needed new ones. I purchased Holbein Artist's Water Color and have been thrilled with the results. I also purchased Tim Holtz Watercolor Cardstock and am loving it, too. Amazing what having quality supplies will do for your creativity!
For those of you who read yesterday's post about how I'm not purchasing supplies and paper, you're probably confused. Well, the justification goes something like this...
I'm taking a class to learn how to better use my supplies. The watercolor paints I own are terrible. I need to purchase new ones to get my money's worth out of the class. I'll use my Christmas money. Oh, look, Tim Holtz Watercolor Cardstock is on sale.
And that, my friends, is how a woman justifies.
I challenge you to go through your address book or contact list and find someone to mail a card just because it will bring a smile to their face.
Until next time,
