Hubba Hubba Card With A Feather

Hi There!

I am entering this Easel Card into the A Day For Daisies Challenge #41 - you have to add a feather!  I could just see this image with a bright red feather!  I used Copic markers E0000, E000, E00, E02, Y6, Y8, YR09 and B0000. The image is from the Bewildered Set over at A Day for Daisies.  The shoe image I have had for years - now it was the perfect addition for this card - it is from Impression Obsession.  The text "Hubba Hubba" is from Uptown.  Papers and embellishments from my stash.  Hope you like it - I had fun coloring her!  I needed to do those rosy red lips! lol  Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Just to say Hi and wish you all a great weekend!

Soooooooo Happy for Friday!  I have nothing to post but I have been in my art room coloring away on some fun images.  I am just in a coloring frenzy and will have to put everything together next week.  I have to try to remember to jot down the colors I use - I am usually in a rush and never think to do that - so I apologize if I have no color listings - I will have to make an effort on that front of card designing;)  Take care - I have been visiting you all and loving the creativity while I sip my java! Thanks for sharing and being there!  Have a great weekend!  Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Spring Showers/May Flowers

Hi, There

Saturated Canary Challenge #15

When I read that Saturated Canary was doing a challenge on "Spring Showers" - it was a perfect excuse for me to color another Krista Smith image - like I need any excuses! lol  This is an easel card so I did take a few photos for you to take a peek inside.  The library that is located not far from where I work is celebrating their 100 year anniversary!  Since I visit them quite often on my lunch break, I decided to give them this card in celebration!  Hope they like it!

 I used copic markers to color the image and all flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts and the papers are from my stash.  I added a text stamp from Penny Black and I computer generated the Happy Anniversary etc.

Thinking of You

Hi, There!

I am using an image from Krista Smith - she is an awesome artist - love her work!  I am entering this card in the Thinking of You Challenge #14 at Saturated Canary.  This image touched my heart.  Just had to make a card for someone special to me.  I colored her with Copic markers and I used Once Upon A Time paper.  Verve "Thinking of You" stamp on a MS punch, and the other text was computer generated.  I used pearl adhesives from Recollections, flowers and ribbon from my stash.  Hope you like it!  Everyone have a great weekend.  Till next week - Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

A Day For Daises Challenge #40 "Found Paper"

Hi, There!

My Oh La La card for A Day For Daises challenge #40 "Found Paper".  They have an awesome new set of images!  I love them.  I made this card using the "Befuddled" image.  She is so Marilyn!!  I have to make her in more than just these soft tones!  Next one, I am thinking - juicy red lips! lol   I left the card very plain "for me anyway";)  I colored her with soft copic markers and I used DP Once Upon A Time/DCWV.  Wrapped some colored cording around the background paper.  The found paper is peeking out from the "Oh La La" stamp (Uptown Design) and I found it wrapped around my sweater from the cleaners!  It was the perfect color for this card!   Here she is:

 Now here is a close up as I do not think the "Oh La La" came out that well in this shot.  It was embossed with copper.
Oh, well, I really need photography lessons.  Till next time, have a great evening.  Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Missing You Cards

Hi There!  Have this "missing you" card  that I will send to me sister.  I used Bo-Bunny papers on the blue card, a Martha Stewart punch on the side and one of her die punch for the text.  Added a doily, and a rose and some bling from Recollections.  The image is from Magnolia and the stamp text is from Verve's collection of Hope Blooms.  

The next card I would like to enter into Magnolia's Springtime Challenge.  I used the same Magnolia Stamp and Verve stamp as my blue miss you card, but a card of a different color using S-E-I paper that I didn't even know I had.  Once I saw all those butterflies just had to make another card and I made it an easel card.  Apologize for poor lighting - no sun today so I am having a rough time focusing my cards!  Thanks for visiting and enjoy the rest of your day!  Hugs ~ CaroleAnn
