 Hi, There!

I hope my little note finds you all well and recovered from the hustle and bustle we seem to create outselves in our lives!!!!  LOL

We had a peaceful Christmas and now we are getting ready for the arrival of my daughter from Minnesota and a grandson that is traveling back home to us and all this starts today and goes thru the weekend!!!

But wanted to wish you all a blessed and happy New Year and I pray you will all be safe in your goings and comings for this New Year of 2022!

I received some new papers from Stamperia Winter Tales, and I was going to try to make an album from all the goodies but decided to make a birthday card for someone who requested a card.  This is an easel card.

Thanks for stopping by and be blessed always ~ Hugs, CaroleAnn

It has been quite a year for all of us and for me, personally, we have had some health issues that slowed me up from being able to give much attention to my blog.  But just thought I would send out this little note to let you know I am still here - peeping at all your beautiful creations!  

Below is just a photo of some of the cards on my table that I just completed.  I am now finished with my Christmas card-making (made 50 cards to my surprise:) and now will enjoy the remainder of this year with my family and friends.  

I pray that the good Lord will send you many blessings in 2022 and keep you and yours safe in all your goings and comings!

All stamps, papers and die cuts used to make these cards are from Stamping Up.

 Just posting a few photos of some of my creations for my Christmas cards for family and friends.

Be blessed and enjoy your family and friends.  Hoping to have a better 2021 with hope for an end to all this chaos.

The first two cards were made from a kit - Kim's Cards.  

Next two cards from my Stampin Up supply.

I stuffed a pair of warm wool blend socks inside this little mini coffee cup carrier!  Was fun to make.

 Hey There!

Hi, and thanks for stopping by.  This is just a quickie post with a card I made just using a few stamps on the base card.  Colored with Copic Markers.  Real simple.  

I love fall and we have had some awesome colors here upstate, but now there is so much rain I believe the leaves will be leaving us soon!!!  LOL  Hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

 Hi, There!

Since Halloween is not far off, I got this chance to try my hand at this special fold card.  So here is a photo and all the supplies used to make this card are from SU.  

It was a fun card to make and I will try a few more for those in my family that like to receive halloween cards.  

Hope you are well, and I hope to be around on my blog - but rest assured I am checking in with all my faves - may not be leaving many comments, but I am loving what you are all making.  

Be blessed and be safe, until next time ~ hugs and blessings, CaroleAnn

 Hi, There!

Well, I have not been around for a while and now see a new blogger concept so I will go with this until I can figure it all out!!

We could use more honey bees around here.  It is sad to see how scarce they have become.  Our tomato plants could use a few:(  

This is a shaker card made using Stampin Up products and I had fun designing this card.  It is easy when all the papers coordinate with everything.  I love this stamp set too - Honey Bee.  Thanks for stopping by, hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

Here is a photo of another card made with the same stamp set.  I know, whoever saw a green honey bee hive - but hey, it's my card;)  The hive was die cut and attached with 3D foam dots.  I colored some flowers here and there on the background paper.  Fun card!

Hi, There!

Hope you are okay and hanging in there. 

I got a kick out of seeing these geckos and just had to make a card with them.  Yep - it is from my stash so no name for these except I am pretty sure it was an Inkadinkadoo stamp because it was in an old drawer with a bunch of those stamps - which I do not believe I will be able to part with. 

This is the worst purging I think anyone has ever done.  I just can't help myself as I know I will want to use this stamp again.  If it is more than 10 years from now, I may not be here!!!!!  So I should let it go as I think that is how long I have had these stamps!!!!!   Only kidding, sorry:(

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.  Take care and, hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

Sharing my card with:
The Little Red Wagon #559 - Spots and/or Stripes


The gecko image was stamped three times and is colored with Copic markers on separate thick white cardstock, fussy cut,  and attached to the front of my background with 3D foam.  

The background I created before attaching the geckos with an MFT stamp with various colored inks from my stash and did the same with the splatter stamp that came in this same set from MFT.  

Added the sequins from SU and then mounted this to black cardstock and then onto the white base.
