MOJO176 and Paper Players 30

Well, despite the fact that I'm suffering from depression that the Patriots lost to the Jets on Sunday, I managed to find my way to my stamp room and concentrate on making a card for the MOJO and Paper Players challenges. 

Once again, I've tried my hand at watercoloring.  Why does it always look so good when I see other people do it?  I especially like the watercolor technique that Ilina Crouse uses all the time, and that's the one I've been practicing lately.  I'm not sure I've got the hang of it, but I'll keep trying!
 
After I put this card together, I realized that it didn't have a sentiment.  So I stamped a teeny-tiny thanks {so much} from the Tiny Tags stamps set and hung it from the River Rock button with a some crochet thread.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today! Pin It Now!

It looks like you've got the hang of water coloring to me, your flower is stunning!! Gorgeous :) p.s. I never even considered the Patriots losing, what a disappointment...stamping can always make us feel better though right?!?
