Hi, There!
Well, I am back with another HB card.  This image from the stamp set at BuddlyCrafts is so cute - she was fun to color up.  I used Copic and Spectrum Noir markers, and the DP is from Simple Stories/Say Cheese.  Happy Birthday cake die cut is from my friend, Sherri;)  The little bingo cards I cut out from the DP and used foam dots for 3D look. Thanks for stopping by - it is almost the weekend and I am getting ready to do a "happy dance"!!!!  Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There!

I received this great clear stamp set from Buddly Crafts and seeing that I have a number of birthdays arriving in April, I thought I better get started making some HB cards!!  So here is the first one and I am working on the second.  Enjoy the rest of your evening and thanks for stopping by, Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Card Recipe
Colored with Copic markers and I cut out some of the balloons on the DP and coated them with glossy accent and mounted with foam.  The "happy birthday balloon" die-dimensions die cut was sent to me from my friend Sherri!  The frame and corner die cut is from my stash.  A little glossy accent on the icing on the cake along with the cherry!

Hi, There!

The other day someone very dear to me told me they feel like all their internal butterflies left them.  That made me feel sad so I wanted to make this card for that special person and let her know I'm sending these butterflies to her with lots of love.  And to remind her that she has some awesome, beautiful, internal butterflies that everyone around her can experience because she is so special!!!  Believe!!
Thanks for visiting with me and may you always be aware of your "internal butterflies"!!!  Big Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There!

I made a thank you card tonight that I would like to share with you.  The name of the digital image is "Button Garden" from My Besties and she is just so cute but I really love how she is sitting inside of a flower pot surrounded with all her button flowers.  I so need flowers right now!  I had fun coloring this image with lots of bright, cheery colors using Copic Markers.  Hope your weekend has been bright and cheery.  Thanks for stopping by, till next time, Hugs ~ CaroleAnn
