Timeless Tuesday...Christmas in Water Color

Well it's time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge which is to do a Christmas themed card in water color.

Well bring me some friggin....oops! I mean figgy pudding and bring it right now! This may not truly be a Christmas themed card but let's face it ...I am an artiste and we do get temperamental and go a little figgy every now and then. This branch of figs is from Flourishes ( of course as this is their challenge) and since I am away from home and living off the goodness of DD I had to use what I could to create with. Poor girl only has a thousand or more stamps for me to choose from but I never used this figgy branch before so I said to myself...you go girl and I did. I think it is a lovely set and I didn't do too badly on doing it justice. It's simply done with my good old water colored pencils and a blender....well I just lied because they are DD's pencils and blender. Simple card with a bit of corner punches, a Nestie fancy shmansy die, a bit of glitter glue, and a bit of matching ribbon and voila...fini, that's French for there you have it and I'm done.

Update on my hoe down. It was a grand time with a special band (some old Dudes) that played some country Western music. Our chairs were bales of hay and we had a dinner of aligator stew and differnt types of soups with corn bread. Talk about Western ...Hee Haw and it was FUN! There was a cute old dude who played the fiddle and he even had a Western name ... Clay, but he also had on a wedding ring....dang! I'll just keep on looking. See you back here on Friday if not sooner.
