Water Colors, and another Spring project!

Yesterday my mom showed me how to paint using water colors.  Let me just say that I do not paint or draw and am not a artist.  This was my first time really painting.  I think that it turned out pretty good considering.  I really enjoyed spending time with my mom and learning something new from her. 
Today I made this card because I really wanted to use the stamp that I got from the dollar bin at Michaels.  I love spring and can't wait to see all the may flowers. The picture turned out a little dark and does not do it any justice.  I had so much fun making the flowers for my flower pot that I wanted to make some more for this card.

Spring Fever!

I have not posted anything in a long time.  I had a couple of weeks were I was just not in the mood to craft or do anything really.  I am finally feeling better and not so down in the dumps.  My mom and I are planning on having another crop party so I have been thinking of ideas to do.  My mom and I are both going to share a project for us all to do.  I decided to do this idea that I got when I went to Alabama a couple of weeks ago.  While down there Mom and me needed a pick me up so we went shopping at Hobby Lobby. 
I played around with different flowers and finally made these and really liked them.  I used the paisley cart and cut out a flower from that and used 5 different sizes and add buttons for the center.  I think this project makes a great spring decor for the house. 
Another project I did was to use a wooden cut out of a J for my little girl Jada.  I painted it and then added stuff that Jada likes.  I think it turned out pretty good.  Jada really likes it and already has it in her room.
