LPS sneak peek and Holly's Sketch Cards

Good Friday Morning!
I had a lot of stamping time yesterday and all of it was the "just because" stamping! Gotta love those days! I think I created about 7 cards!
This first card was done last week and it is another preview of a stamp set to be released by Little Paper Shop on July 22. The new stamp set is called All My Family. There is Father, Mother, Brother, Sister, Grandma.....you get the idea :)
So I paired the GRANDMA sentiment up with the Still Hot Granny stamp...lol...love this one too~!

Holly from Toy's Haven posted a sketch on her blog Thursday. I totally adore her work and am thrilled to play along with her. It's a fabulous sketch so you know....I HAD to make two ;)

Oh wow Dawn! You just never cease to amaze me girl! I LOVE your watercoloring! How do you do it so well? I try and try to watercolor with my aqua painter and watercolor paper and can never get it to turn out the way I want. It just bleeds all the time! The only way I can watercolor and stay in the lines is with my blender pens! Do you have any tips? Anyway, I just love all three of these cards! I have been wanting that granny stamp for some time now and I think I might just go for it! :D Love it!
