Hi, There!

It's been some time that I have managed to get anything made but this card was so much fun and worth the wait for me to tackle!  The image is from Saturated Canary called Usherette.  She is just so adorable and I colored her up with Copic Markers.  I used a Designer Paper Packet that I bought over a year ago and just getting around to it.  It had all sorts of papers and stickers all with a movie theme so it was a perfect match for this little usherette!  The popcorn holder can be used to put a gift card inside!  I tried my hand at a twist easel card and not sure if you can see it in my photos to follow.  Thanks for visiting, happy movie watching and of course, lots of buttered popcorn!! Yum!!  Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There!

We should recycle whenever we can so I was happy to say that I found the perfect spot for these recycled earrings.  I painted them here and there with the blue to match the colors in the card.   Then I was wishing I still had them to wear in that color!  LOL  The digital image is from Sugar Nellie called Sophia - what a dream to color and I added some gloss to her eyes.  I had to make my own card for the background as I got carried away with the size of the DP and realized too late I did not have the right card size to mount it!  But there are no mistakes in art!!  So I went forward with a larger size card then usual and liked the results!  Fussy cut the tag label that I stamped the sentiment on.  Used a MS border punch at bottom of card, all papers are from Kaiser Craft/Madame Boutique.  Rhinestones from Recollections, Doily and heart from stash.  Used some stickles on the sides of the card base.  Till next time, thanks for visiting with me, recycle when we can! Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

PS  Sissy, do you recognize your earring??  LOL

Hi, There!

Here is a very pretty image from The East Wind that is so much fun to color especially if you like to color hair, like I do.  And I just had to give her some beautiful pink hair!  I left the banner without text as I am not sure how I will be using this card yet.  And then I decided it might be fun to make another print out and give it some height.  But no time to do it for this photo shoot.  Till next time, I hope you find something fun to color - I need more days in the week to just color up all the images I have printed out in the past week!! Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There!

I love surprises and a friend called me out of the blue and said lets go to lunch.  He use to be one of my bosses in work and I miss him.  He was very nice to me and we became friendly over the years.  So I met him and his wife at a country club in New Jersey and they treated me to an awesome lunch and even had a 4th of July plant for be as a surprise little gift.  So thoughtful.  It absolutely made my day!!  So once I got home from work, I knew exactly what I wanted to create for them as a thank you card and here it is!  So thank you Bob and Julie - if you read my blog - not sure!!  Hope everyone is safe for this US holiday and enjoy some good times with good friends - good for the soul!!  Big Hugs ~ CaroleAnn
