Hi, There!
It is a little early for harvest time but we are getting there.  The trees are changing colors here ever so slightly, pumkins are beginning to make their appearance on front steps of homes and there are plenty of great apples for the pickings!  So I just had to use this image from Saturated Canary/Harvest Girl.  This is my fave time of year - autumn so I think a lot of my cards will be caught up in all the glorious colors of fall!  This is also going out to my blog friend, Vicki - Happy Birthday to You!!  Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a great week.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Diesire edgeables is the die cut for the HB part of the card.  I used glossy accents on her eyes (sapphire color) and on the apples.  The frame around the digital image is from IO shaded with different Versa Magic chalk.  DP is from Garden Collage/K&C used for the background.  And the feathers were cut from vellum and cardstock with IO Feathers diecut.
Stardust in her feathers and liquid pearls in her hair!

Hi, There!
I hope my little post finds you well.  I loved the challenge at 613 Avenue Create and the sentiment give away that is being offered is fabulous - so very generous!  The friendship sentiments are from My Creative Therapy and I just had to play along with this one!  Check it out!

So without further a-do here is my card to honor Women's Friendship Day and my friendship of over 38 years with a woman that knows plenty about me!!:)  It is wonderful to be so blessed with a friendship such as ours - I am lucky - and thank you my friend, Betty!!  Thanks for stopping by, till next time ~ Hugs, CaroleAnn

Hi, There!

I hope you enjoyed your summer and in families that have school or college age kids - all have settled into a routine.  We have here.  My daughter has to be in work by 7 am so I am getting the kids off to school and so far they have all been getting downstairs on time!!  There is no driving to school here as I have to be out to work after they climb those bus steps!

Now about my card - it is all about books for me - well sometimes, when I am not catching up on TV shows with my Kindle.  But reading does relax me more and I do enjoy a good book.  So this card is dedicated to all our librarians and libraries and all the wonderful worlds they open up to us!

I would like to enter this card for the following challenge:
613 Avenue Create Challenge #141 - Anything Goes/Love Me Do

Card Recipe:
Digital Image from Saturated Canary "What the Librarian Reads" 
Used Copic Markers:

E30 E31 E33 E35
G24 G85 YR00 YR01 YR02 Y23
C3 C4
DP - Stitched/Amy Tangerine by American Crafts

I folded the front of the card back and decorated with the papers, used a die cut frame for the image.  Fussy cut the cup and popped out with foam.  Used some glitter here and there and put a little Glossy Accents on her eye glasses - which BTW I love!!  I decorated the inside with some little books that I made up from Kraft paper and white copy paper.  

Accents Added:
pearls, wooden "love" word, chipboard tag from Graphics 45 Bohemian which I applied the little paper letters on and those are from BoBunny/Vicki B.  Tied a string to the tag.  

Papers have been distressed and shaded with Distress Inks.  I have a small place inside of the card to write my sentiment to my fave library!!
