In An Affair with Art yahoo group many of our members have had a lot of family illness and death that they are dealing with. So, Jeri, suggested that we have a mingle ( make 1 card and receive 1 card). The theme was to make a sunshiny themed card of cheer. Nothing cheers me more than the beach, and so I painted a beach themed card with a palm tree, ocean, and sea grasses. After the paint was dry, I went back and added metallic water color paints to add touches of shimmer to the water and tree. Unfortunately, that doesn't show up in the photo. Next I rubber stamped 2 different heron (stamps are from Stampscapes) . Have a sunny day phrase stamp is an old wood mounted stamps from imaginations. My card will be sent to Gloria. I decided to leave the card blank inside in case Gloria wants to send it on to someone else.
