I am l♥ving hand painting my own cards and creating my own designs more and more. Here, I took a bussines card to create the shape of the watercolor box and then free hand painted in the rest. I ran my image through the computer to get the sentiment.

puns + watercolors = sublime tingles of joy

Here are the watercolors that I have been using for this challenge...and yes, you are seeing it correctly; they are currently attached to a tag that I did last year for the TH 12 tags of 2012 and that I usually have hanging up in my craft room. I took it down off the wall to use for the watercolor challenges!

This is so amazing. How clever to use the business card this way. Also how neat to be able to reuse your 2012 TH tag! Now that is truly recycling!!! TFS...and Happy Sunday
