HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!

Hi, There!

For all the July birthdays for this month - this is for you!  This is a Power Poppy stamp and it was fun to color up.  

I used a SU embossing folder and image coloring all done with Copic markers.  Framed with a SU die and dots from stash.  Distress ink used on the embossing folder and around the frame die-cut.

The cupcake had me drooling for one, so we bought a tray of cupcakes to celebrate the 4th of July with our family tonight.  A beautiful day for us to celebrate, it was quiet, just us - but that being said "just us" is seven people here living together!:)  

So going to put some coffee on and dig into our cupcakes!!!  No diet for me this weekend!!!!  Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your day and hope you find something yummy to eat at the end of the day!!!  Hugs and blessings always ~ CaroleAnn

THINKING OF YOU AND SENDING HUGS


Hi, There!

This is how I feel right now, just thinking about my family, friends, and the world in general.  I love this mouse image and I had to give her glitter shoes!  LOL  I made one up in pink tones (for my sister) and one in purple (for my daughter). 

I am supposed to be downsizing my wooden stamp collections but then I fall in love with them all over again - this is not working so good for me!!!!

Well, if nothing else know someone is thinking about you today!  Hugs and blessings always ~ CaroleAnn

ENGLISH COTTAGE

Hi, There!

My last post of that 1999 PSX wooden stamp.  I had a few in different sizes and they just remind me of English cottages or perhaps Scottish cottages. 

I kept the coloring very simple - only on the roof and the flowers around the front of the cottage.  I imagine them as roses and the glorious scent you would get on your goings and comings from this lovely cottage!  Kept the framing simple too and just added some ribbon behind the framed image.

Just a short post for today.  Have a wonderful weekend and stay safe, hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

A SWEET HELLO


Hi, There!

I have some cards I made some time ago but just did not get around to posting yet.  This must come with age,  and the heat we are dealing with here - I have no energy lately.  Thank goodness I have an AC in my craft room:)

On to my card - I think this rabbit is so sweet looking.  It is a wooden stamp from Suzy's Zoo collection and this is called Lulla Bye!  I like his pink pads as my cat has pink pads too (he's a ginger kitty).

I kept the design simple for mailing, not happy when I have to use that extra postage;)  

I used a scallop punch that I had before the Big Shot explosion for cutting all those shapes, used Copic Markers for the stamped image.  Added a little hello sentiment, some gingham BP, ribbon, and a butterfly sticker.  Good to go!  

Hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

CELEBRATE YOUR DAY!

Hi, There!

I hope you are doing well.  We have some beautiful weather here on East Coast - must make time for a walk!!  But first this post:

I had this die label for quite some time and decided to give it a home.  The sentiment and all papers are from SU.  Flowers from my stash.  These were all papers just leftover from another project so it made it super easy to just put it together!  Thanks for stopping by,  hope you have some sunshine where you live, hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

WHAT'S UP?

Hi, There!

I ordered this stamp set from PowerPoppy called short stacks and it is on sale now. You can also order this one in digital form but I wanted the clear stamp set.  

I have so many digital stamps and in the beginning, I just thought I will save space and not buy any more stamps (that never happened) but, alas, my computer is packed and I never think to go thru what I have (as I believe I just forget what I have)!

Most times, I am in a hurry and just want to sit down and stamp and color - no computer browsing and going to my printer and printing.  If I had everything in one room, I believe I would be more productive! Maybe;)

Well, back to the card - I once had a parakeet called Peter and my sister and I adored him.  He had quite the personality too!!   Peter was green like the bird that I painted on the first card and yes, he would have sat on a teacup too!   As usual, I had to make one more card featuring this bird in blue.  

Fun image to color and design, something I needed right now.  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek and if you leave a comment, thanks - I love to read them!  Hugs and blessings always ~ CaroleAnn
