Remember Me Card

Hi There!

I saw the challenge over at A Day for Daisies - loved the photo inspiration!  And since those are my colors (like so many others) I decided to jump in.  I have given her lots of stardust on her wings and her wishing flower. I used Kraft light card stock for the background and to make the butterflies and my label.  Dotted the butterflies with Liquid Pearls.  Stamped the label with a text stamp from SU.  Used a doily and the DP is from Sassafras/Cherry Delicious.  The stickers at bottom and top are from Stampendous/Class A Peels.  Label is from McGill Punch.  Pixie herself is from ADFD and she is colored with Copic markers.  Have a great Memorial Weekend and many blessings to all our Service Men and Women around the world and their families!  God Bless and keep you all safe.
 See ya next week! Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

I would like to enter this card for:
A Day For Daisies Challenge #44 - Photo Inspiration
The Kraft Journal Challenge #71 -  " Remembering You"

Happy Long Weekend to Us!!

Hi, There!

A long weekend - I can't wait.  My family will be over on Sunday so I am hoping my Monday will be spent playing in my art room.  So much coloring to do and so little time;)  I made these cards a while ago so I don't have much info on them except I am pretty sure I used My Minds Eye papers and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the stamped image is from Mabelle RO. (I actually saw this stamp text on a card Sherri made on her blog first and loved it - so thanks Sherri)  I wish you all a great weekend - do something fun for yourself.  Take care, hugs ~ CaroleAnn

You know I have to do more than one color - this one I used a spellbinder label for the background and my pearls are from Recollections.
Now this one I had to do in teal blue because I wanted to use these flowers and I had this piece of ribbon in my stash.  The swirls are crystals from Recollections.

Under The Sea

Hi, There
Well, I tried making a card with 3 layers to it. I used a mermaid from Magnolia Stamps and the papers and stickers are from K&Company/Tim Coffey Travel.  The text stamp is from Crafty Secrets/Mermaids Set.  Colored the little mermaid with Copic Markers.  The tag inside the card is from Websters Pages.  I took a few shots of this card so you could see how it opens. (3 layers)  Thanks for stopping by.  Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

This card I made for my grandson - he is 18 years old - :)  I saw this image from Mo's Digital Pencil and I was flooded with memories on how much he loved blowing bubbles when he was a wee tyke!  So happy to have those memories. Till next time - I am taking a break from challenges for awhile so I can just color at leisure and then I will be back.  Thanks for stopping by, have a great week, Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Saturated Canary has a very easy challenge - one that I gladly jumped into since I have already colored this lovely lady - "Frizzy Jynx".  So I am entering her into Challenge #16 "Happy Birthday" 
She was fun to color and I had fun adding "stuff" - this is an easel card.  Till next time - Hugs ~ CaroleAnn
