Hi, There!

You all know how I feel about "Fairyland" so this adorable Sprite called Dandelion is just what I wanted to color.  It was a generous freebie from Mitzi at AuroraWings - so thanks again!!  Their challenge is "no lines or color bingo - so chicken that I am I went for the Color Bingo.  Not too good with the my Mac in trying to alter images so I wasn't sure if I could do the no lines.  So here she is and the image reminds me of being a little girl in the park with my sister and gathering all the dandelions we could and blowing away!!  Nice to be brought back to our childhood as it is so good for our souls;)

Till next time, thanks so much for visiting, have a wonderful week filled with some kind of childhood fun!:)  ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There!

I love Wednesday!!  I can now get thru Thursday knowing it will be Friday soon!! LOL  Okay, on with my card - I love this image from Sugar Nellie at FunkyKits!  I colored this some time ago, so I do not have the colors listed but I did use Copic and Spectrum markers on this image. This was really fun to color.  I also used a silver gel pen.  Used Glossy Accents for her eyes which was my favorite part in creating this card.  Which by the way, is my first step card!  Finally, figured out how to score and cut it but I still need some practice.  Used lots of stuff from my stash - die cut corners that I found in that stash along with some rhinestones.  The sentiment is from Lily of the Valley stamps.  Paper is from my stash too.   Thanks for visiting and have a great remainder of this week!  Till next time, Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There
I just thought both these bears were just so cute that I had to make a she and he card!:) I used card stock from my stash and all buttons, ribbon, and pearls were from my stash too.  I put some clear gloss on their eyes and colored them up with Spectrum Noir markers and shaded with some of my Spectrum Noir pencils!  Fun images to color!  Thanks to Mo Manning at Mo's Digital Pencil!  Now I don't want anyone to not feel well but I am ready for that needed "get well" card for a he or she!  Stay well, and until next time, Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There!

Hope my little blog finds you well.  Had some gorgeous weather here on the East Coast of USA. Since we did not have a tournament to travel to, we enjoyed some family time!   Felt good to be just home!  So I managed to get one card done and I am on a Sugar Nellie high!  I have a few more to color up before this day is out and my "happiness" is being home from work and able to work in my art room with my pens and pencils!  So here is Alicia from Simply Adorable Stamps.  I wish you some happiness for today in whatever gives you pleasure! Thanks for visiting, till next time - which may be awhile as we are back on the road again for next round of tournaments this weekend!
Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There!

Do you like to read?  I wish I had more time to read because I love books.  I can spend my whole lunch hour just walking up and down the aisles of the library just trying to decide which book to choose.  I always end up with more than one - at least four - and sometimes start reading two - but, yes, my characters get mixed up in my head! LOL  Okay, enough, "blah, blah" onto the card.  I made it for the library that I spend so much time in not far from work.  I used my new Spectrum Noir blendable pencils and I got the Gamsol and used that for blending and it works like a dream!!!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find time for a book that will take you away to some far away place and time;)  Hugs ~ CaroleAnn
