Keep On Truckin'

Do you ever feel like that's your motto in life?  Just keep on truckin', keep on truckin'....

Sometimes I do. When I get overwhelmed, when I have a lot going on, so many things to do and be for everyone...

Instead, I should be thanking God for life. Thanking Him for every day that I live, thanking Him for every moment with my children, for a messy house to clean, for food to cook.  So maybe the motto should be Keep On Truckin' and Thankin', and Praisin'! :)

Yes, it's Monday.  A Monday full of things to I won't tary long. ;-)

Today's post is one of those stamp sets that I absolutely HAD to get upon perusal of the new catalog. ;-)  I saw this image specifically, and said gotta have it! :)

It's called "Countryside" and I love it!  Perfect for those hard-to-make masculine cards! :)

One of my favorite techniques to work with in cardmaking is watercoloring.  It so relaxes me!  It's especially nice with Stampin' Up's watercolor paper.  Nice and thick, it absorbs the color, blends it! :)  I colored this with my SU markers and aquapainter.

I also used something else that is of my new fave colors, called "Cherry Cobbler"'s a nice deep red. The Chocolate Chip layer is distressed with our distressing tool from the cutter kit.

Well, what do you think?
