April 22- Flowers With Watercolors
April 23-Stand By Your Man Explosion Card
April 24-Holidays Candy Holder

So last but not least (I hope, lol)! We have seen some awesome water coloring projects. For my stamped image, I am using Tim Holtz Distress Markers.  I did this tech earlier in the month for MFPS new Stamp Release Blog Hop.

So here are my water color flowers, well...actually, my water color image, bunny included.  This is soooo easy to color without taking all the time for blending and such.

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself. Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise. Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card. The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
