The Heart Desires - Challenge #11

Coming in on the tail end of this fabulous challenge at The Heart Desires ... I did a bit of hopping with the PNW gals this morning - honoring the delightful, wonderful Kimberly Wiener's birthday... this one's for you, my sweet friend!

Just look at this darling, Spring-themed inspiration board:


There are lots of  Technique Tuesday cuties in The Heart Desires shop ... this one I've used happens to be of the 'oldie but goodie' category!

Very simple water-colored with Distress inks

Happiest birthday, Kimberly!!!  Wishing I was there to celebrate with you!  xxoo
