Hi, There!

As you can tell I have another mermaid image and this one is from Crafts and Me by artist Robin Pushay - it is called Butterfly Kisses!  It is just so precious and I had to have it to color it up!  I used both Copic and Spectrum Noir markers for this task and I love how she came out.  I just love that little baby mermaid!!  Hope you enjoyed taking a peek!  Have a great week!  Till next time, Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There!

Hope you are all well.  Not much time for me to be blogging or creating as I would like but I did manage to find time to color up this mermaid image from Aurora Wings and I love mermaids!  Now I need another fix so I am going to search thru my flash drive for more mermaids waiting to be brought to life!  I love how she lays in the deep with her treasures and she seems to caress this skull very possessively and I love that about this image.  Love the expression on her face.  And I may be stretching the Aurora Wings Challenge for Flowers but I believe she has flowers from the sea draping over her shoulders and I am interpeting the starfish as the flowers of the deep!  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek, enjoy the rest of your week.  Till next time, hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There!

I think it might be safe enough for me to post a card wishing everyone "happy spring"!  I am seeing some crocus pop up and the start of some daffodils in warmer climate south of me.  So, yes it is on its way.  So here is my card - it was very hard to pick a spring type image to color.  I have so many lovely images and I wish I could be home all day coloring but, alas, it is not the case:(  But then, how could I afford to buy my stamps or digital images!!! Catch-22!!  This image is called Anastasia from Make It Crafty!!  So much fun to color if you like big eyes and big hair!!!  LOL  Until next time, take care, and thanks for stopping by and I wish for you lots of spring like weather!!

I have not found the time to visit all the lovely blogs and leave comments here and there.  We are deep into basketball tournaments and my husband and I travel with my grandson to all his games.  So when we do not have practice runs, we have games!!  Last year we got to go to New Orleans!!!  All very exciting.  But I have to tell you, we are getting too old for bleachers so we got ourselves some nice stadium seats so I hope our backs will be thanking us soon!   Hugs ~ CaroleAnn
