Hi, There!

Okay, we got over two feet of snow here so what else can you do but build a snowman???  Not a bit of ground to be seen to plant a flower!!!

It looked really pretty on the trees etc.  and we were very, very lucky that we did not lose our power - but the shoveling that laid ahead was incredible.

My husband has the help of our three big grandsons, thank you Lord for them!!!!!

Now this image is adorable and I had fun coloring her up but I want to dump her into the snow!!!!!  LOL

We have another storm system heading our way next week - will spring ever arrive?????  I have to make some spring cards soon so I can stay calm about it all!!!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having better weather than this Northeast side of the USA!!!  Big Hugs and Blessings ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There!

Just had to make one more of these pretty ladies from Make It Crafty - Tess.  From my stash, I used some background with embossed flowers, rhinestones, and two die cuts, one from MS butterflies, and the other is from Spellbinders the hello die cut.  Thanks for stopping by and hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There!

Just wanted to post this today as I already sent it out to my sister - I am hoping she gets a big smile from this card as I was smirking the whole time I was making it for her!!!!!  This is a #StampingBella stamp that I have had for quite some time now.  I used MFT cloud stencil to make my sky background and then added the image.  I added a strip of blue glitter paper to the side along with some cord.  There are two butterflies added at the bottom.  The image was colored with Copic Markers and sorry I never copied my colors down.  The sentiment is also part of this adorable stamp set.  Thanks for stopping by and just so everyone knows, my sister is the awesome one - always;)  Hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There!

Hope you are having a great day.  The sun is shining so brightly here and it feels warm coming thru the windows.  So this is a fast post because I would like to take a walk while the sun is still shining!

This image just shines on her own with those big sparkly eyes.  I had fun coloring her up and adding some details to her shirt and pants.  I was inspired by a card I saw over at Little Butterfly Creations so I did the same design with the same image - Anja, thanks for the inspiration I love your cards!!

Thanks for stopping by and go catch some sun rays if you are lucky to have them today!!  Hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There!

I seem to be on a coffee kick but the caffeine kick is what I need too!!!  LOL  This image is from Mos Digital Pencil and she is cute but the sentiment is what got me since I am a big coffee drinker.  So I decided to make a card for my hubby for his upcoming birthday with this image and sentiments.

Also as you scroll below I made a second card with the same image and used some word chipboards from Make It Crafty.  This one will go to my sister!!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day, hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

Used Tutti Stitched Nesting Rec. to frame image
Spoon and mug fussy cut from Heartfelt Creations/Coffee Collection  Also the sentiment on top from the same collection mounted with foam tape.

Hi, There!

I have had these House Mouse Decoupage sheets from Joanna Sheen for so long and as usual just located them in my stash.  So I just had to make a card with this delightful and funny image of these adorable critters!  I had some trouble cutting them out and this is my first time trying to decoupage them so not the greatest but oh, what fun it was putting them together.  I was smiling the whole time!

Sending this to my sister as she loves these mice.  I have more to put together too so she will be happy when the cards arrive!  

I mounted the design on some polka dot paper from my stash and added some Stardust glitter here and there but that was it.  These images stand alone - so darn cute!!!!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find something to work on in your stash that puts a smile on your face:)  Hugs, and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There!

This stamp image was perfect for me today.  I have been invited to visit a friend at her home for coffee and chit-chat!  So I wanted to make a card for her to bring with me along with a goodie to eat.  (Not sure what I am making yet.)

Now another friend has also been invited so I made her a card also of the same image. (Second photo) Just love when things just fall into place for themselves!!  

Hope you are having a great weekend and will be sharing some special time with a friend or two.  Until my next post, hugs, and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

Both card images were colored with Copic markers and the image is from Deep Red/Coffee with Friends - this was in the kit with the Scrapping For Less for the month.  Papers on background and scraps from the same kit.  I used my twine around each card.  From my stash, I used a piece of craft paper to make a border on the one card and added a charm to each card.  The rhinestones and sequins also from the kit.  Cup and coffee swirls were touched up with Wink of Stella.
