Deepest Sympathy - AI Watercolor Challenge

WOW, just realized how long it has been since I posted.  Well, here is the story.

My last post was September 15, 2015, just about 1 year ago.  Why is that relevant, well, my husbands grandmother, who was 88 at the time and who lived with us for about 6 years, fell and broke her hip.  Being her main caregiver, I needed to spend a lot of time with her while she was recovering. 

She fell again at the Rehabilitation Center about a month later and broke her other hip more severely than the first.  This recovery was much more intense and time consuming.  Needless to say, my crafting and posting were put on hold.

Sadly, she passed away at the end of April this year.  We are still digging out from lawyers, family obligations and cleaning out her apartment (addition to our house). 

But I digress.  So tonight I was looking at Art Impressions blog and saw they were doing a Watercolor challenge and thought this would be perfect to join in on.  I have been doing a lot with Instagram as it is easier and quicker than blogging.

I am OBSESSED with Art Impression watercolor stamps.  Here is a creation I did on a recent plane ride home.  I have been toying with creating cards for all occasions and selling them in my local gym.  I need more Sympathy cards, VOILA. 

Anyway, enough of my babbling.  Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.  I hope you have a crafty day!!!
