UP DATE!!  This card won for QKR Challenge #109!!!  And made Designer of the Day on 613 Avenue Create's Facebook page!!

Hi, There!
I absolutely love this digital image from QKR called Witch!  I had fun with this one as I popped out the hands with foam dots for a 3D effect.  I can just hear her cackle of "Want Some Candy, My Pretty?" - I computer generated that sentiment and used black frames for both the witch and the text.  Die Cuts used are Impression Obsession - Frames #219 and a Tree Die #242 that I cut apart and used behind the frame. The papers are from Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells and the candy stickers are from Jolee's.  Ribbon and button from my stash. Not sure I would take any of her candy but I will be raiding my grandkids' candy bags for some goodies - no shame when it comes to searching for those Butterfinger bars!!!  Till next time, my pretties - Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

UPDATE:  This card won at Dies R Us Challenge!!!  Yeah!!!  Thank you.

Hi, There!

I received these great Halloween die cuts and just could not wait to try my hand at something - halloweenie!!!  Not one drop of ink was used on this card - a first for me!! LOL  Kind of a nice change of pace to not color and just cut out and glue together.  Halloween Set and Cat Set dies are  from DiesRUs! Love this one stop shopping for Die Cuts!!  Background paper from Authentique/Spirited.  Fence, tree, and Witch are also Impression Obsession die cuts.

Dies R Us Challenge #12 - Halloween

Wednesday, October 15, 2014


Hi, There!
I hope my post finds you enjoying your evening.  Rainy and very humid here for the month of October.  Lots of leaves are falling down with all the wind and rain tonight!  So I guess a lot of us will be "leaf dancing" after this weather is done!  This pair seem to be enjoying it and it was fun coloring them up.  I used my copic markers (sorry never recorded the colors) and all papers and stickers are from my halloween stash.  Love when I get to use up bits and pieces of my designer papers!  This image is from Cuddly Buddly by Artist Kim MacFarlane called Shall We Dance.
Till next time, Happy Leaf Dancing;)  Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Creative Moments Challenge #53 - Anything Goes

Sunday, October 12, 2014


Hi, There!
It has been awhile for me to get back into my mojo of blogging.  Was away for a few weeks and it is taking time to catch up on everything both at home and work!!  But I am so glad that I found the time to color up this adorable digital stamp by Chrishanthi - you can find her wonderful art work here!!  This one is called Halloween Girl so for PPinkyDolls Challenge of Fall Colors -  it is perfect!  I love all the fall colors surrounding us here in upper New York State.  I can't get enough of the colors so I am going onto my next project to color more fall colors.  So until next time, take care, get out and kick some leaves around - hoping you do not have to rake to many!!!  Hugs ~ CaroleAnn
