More Bunches of Thanks

Good Morning! Now that we've got all the birthday celebrations out of the way, we can get back to making cards.
Here are two fairly simple cards with the same layout and stamps.

Stamps: Bunches of Thanks (Hero Arts)
Ink: Artprint Brown ( Memories)
Paper:(K and Company)
Card Stock: Leaf and Blossom Note Cards ( Hero Arts)
Other: Water color Pencils, Ribbon, Nestabilities

Stamps: Bunches of Thanks (Hero Arts)
Ink: Black( Memories)
Card Stock: Crimson and Neutral Note Cards and Watercolor card stock(Hero Arts)

Other: Watercolor Pencils, Ribbon, Nestabilities

The watering can images were stamped on water color card stock and painted with water color pencils. I'm still learning the Nestabilities, but I think I did OK with these cards.

I'm working on a couple of Hero assignments that you'll get to see in a couple of weeks on their website. I still have a few birthday cards to make so I'm busy busy at the Card Castle.

On a personal note: I'm doing OK. I go back to the Doctor in a couple of days for a blood draw and to get my next dose of medicine, which will be increased. She keeps reminding me that this is a Chemo drug. So far, I don't really have any side effects and I probably won't see any improvement in my condition --if it works-- for several weeks. So for now, I'm just thankful that I don't have any side effects.

The red card did it have the black flowers already on the card stock or did you stamp it on?

thank you for showing different variations with the same stamp-I have trouble with doing that. They are beautiful and I think you have the hang of those nesties girl!
Still praying for you on the medical end of things
Hugs.

Your cards are great, and for a non-red gal here, I gravitate towards the red one, go figure. Could you let me know which size of nestabilities you used, or which you find most useful in card making? I like this size, it lets you have room on your card.
Best Wishes for success with your health :). bluemoonbyniteatyahoodotcom
