Watercolor Resist Project Tutorial – Cheers to the Year

Hey stampers! I had the best weekend! Friday night I joined a dear customer who gathered friends together for a stamping “playdate”.  I was invited to teach some fun techniques to stamping newbies in addition to some of her regular gang.  It was so much fun! We used the Painted Harvest stamp set, still one of my faves from the Holiday Catalog. Next, I scored tickets to a Dallas Stars game in a suite! Let me tell you,  that is the way to see a hockey game! Sunday, fun times with the grandcherubs and granddogs.  Last, but not least, my Dallas Cowboys won! Couldn’t have asked for anything more! 🙂  That brings you up to date on my weekend and now on to my project share for you today: Watercolor Resist Project Tutorial – Cheers to the Year.
