Look For The Miracles



The AAA Cards Challenge 2nd Big Birthday Bash is still going on until June 4th. If you haven't joined in the fun and festivities, you should go on over. One of the ways to win, is to do the blog hop, comment on each DT blog, and answer the question they pose.  As an AAA DT Member, my question asks what your favorite craft purchase this year has been.  Well, that question surely did end up costing me some money!!!!! LOL. It seems that the top 2 answers are: the MISTI (I have one - it's the bomb), and ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens.  After reading so many rave reviews of these water color pens, I had to have them.  And of course, I needed many other things to go along with them (wink). So here is my first go with my new ZIG watercolor pens and my new SSS Look For The Miracles stamp set. The pens are indeed AMAZING. I'm in love. I hope my Brushos don't get jealous. I will surely get back to them!

I was inspired by the following Challenges:


Time Out Challenge #57 is their 'Inspired by Words' challenge now and our words are:
'May All your weeds be wild flowers'
You can use any of these words to inspire you or perhaps the whole phrase. You might want to go with flowers, wild, weeds or perhaps use the whole phrase looking at how the hard times don't get in the way of the beauty in your life.

I love the sentiment on my card, and it speaks to the fact that even the hardest of times contain gifts.

I bought both MiISTI and a set of 12 ZIGs this spring... And although that means I've been overspending I love both of those purchases! Thanks for the fun blog hop, I really enjoyed making it the other day. This card is very pretty, all the vivid colours and the doodle style flowers give a smile on my face! Thanks for taking TIME OUT and joining our challenge!

Your card is so vibrant and gorgeous. Looks like you are jumping right in with those bold Zigs. I finally jumped on the Misti bandwagon earlier this year, and cannot live without it now. I just received the giant one, and am so excited to see what else I can do now.

I'm so jealous you have a Misti, they seem like an amazing tool. I do have some Ziggies, aren't they fantastic??!! You certainly coloured your flowers beautifully with them, they really pop and love that black swirly sentiment. My favourite purchase this year is a water brush. Its a small purchase but why did it take me so long to get one, its fantastic!! So very happy you joined us at TIME OUT and if off to do the rest of the AAA blog hop too!
