Blown Watercolor Butterfly Garden

Saturday, May 4, 2013

Just popping in quickly to post a card for this week's Make It Monday.
Instead of blown ink I have blown water color paint droplets.
I've been cleaning all day and also preparing these
 delicious southwestern egg rolls to bring to a friend's tonight as an appetizer. I found them on
Pinterest and made them last summer. They are delicious and so easy to make.
 I get them all ready here and then pop them into my friend's oven for 15 minutes.
So good!!

Have a great day!

Cardstock: PTI Pure Poppy
Paper: Strathmore Watercolor Paper

  2. Love the black butterflies! I would never have thought of that, but I love it! And the egg rolls... Yum!
