Laughing Set by Karen Day

Hello Ai fans!
I'm sharing a card made with one of the newest Girlfriends releases: Laughing Set (Sku#4385)
Now the funny thing about this set, is that these two gals strongly resemble two girls that work where I workout!  The hair, the facial features - it's uncanny how accurate they are... and the two of them have been friends a long time, so this set makes me smile :o)  Here's a closeup:

You'll want to check out all four of the new 2014 Girlfriends sets - you can find them here!  And there is still time to participate in our current Best of Friends challenge, we want to see your cards with two or more people on them.
Happy Stamping everyone!

Watercolor - summer cabin

Hello Ai fans!

As promised last week, here I am again with another watercolor card.
Oh I have so much fun with my stamps! And the more I play, the more I have ideas and the better I become.

For this card, I just followed Bonnie's instructions which come in the stamp package. So easy! And so fun. And at the end I added some wink of Stella in clear in the water which give it a nice shimmery look. Just the perfect touch!
