Charlie In Sepia

Way back in December when I was coloring images for Christmas cards I experimented with monochromatic watercoloring. I liked how this one of Charlie (Whiff of Joy) turned out but didn't get it made into a card. So yesterday, while we had a significant amount of snow gently falling, I retrieved Charlie from the images-in-waiting and put together this little card. The papers are from my scrap drawer and the ovals and rectangles were cut with my precious Nesties. The pewter sentiments reflected what yesterday's gentle snowfall reminded me --- happiness is life's simple pleasures.

Hopefully, it was our last snowfall for this winter and, as much as I love the winter WOJ kids, I am ready to move on to SPRING!

Thank you for stopping by! I hope everyone has a great week!

Thank you for your nice comments on my blog, Barb. I wish I felt like crafting but I just don't.
