Quick, Simple...Calming

Whew. What a weekend for our family!

A Stampin' Up! workshop to demo, a birthday party, Church, Bible Study, Family time....oh, and that little thing called "time change"...ugh.  I'm ready for bed tonight, that's for sure! lol  (I suppose my daughter waking me several times last night, coughing, doesn't help). ;-)

...I'll press onward. ;-)

I guess my point is that I didn't have a lot of "extra" time (or energy) to make an involved card, so here's a quick little card I made this weekend to say "thanks"...I just *love* this little image!!

Watercoloring is a relaxing thing for me, and since I hadn't broke out my SU watercolor crayons in awhile, I decided it was time! :)  I added dimension behind the Rose Red layer...and oops!  I forgot to "ground" the turtle by adding shadows beneath!

It's from a Ronald McDonald House stamp set called "Very Thankful."  Stampin' Up gives $2 from the sale of each set to the Ronald McDonald House Charity.  Check it out in the catalog - it's on the last page! :)

Well, what do you think?
