Hi, There!

Have you ever completed your card, taken your pictures, did all your editing, upload your photo and you're all ready to blog - but wait, you realize you meant to do this or that to your card?  Well that is what happened to me tonight! But now I ran out of my "free" time!  So here is my card - as is - still rather pretty, only I know what I am missing but sometimes you just have to be less critical of your own art work!!  LOL  Hope you are having a wonderful day, not missing anything! Thanks so much for coming by, till next time, Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

  2. Oh, WOW! She is gorgeous! I am always amazed when I see you color hair with colors nature never gave us. It always looks EXACTLY perfect for the image & completely beautiful! I am always too scared to try it but you may have convinced me to do that one of these days. Although I can't begin to color hair the way you do!!
