Hi, There

Just finished this card tonight.  Want to give it to a coworker tomorrow - she found out that her grandson (only 13) has cancer!  Not ours to ask why - but you can only imagine the questions that go around and around in my mind.  So with this card I am sending her and to everyone that has been touched by cancer either through a personal fight or by your personal experience of friends and loved ones -  lots of hugs, prayers, and flowers of hope that someday we will never have to send these type of cards to anyone!!

Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

I would like to enter this into A Day For Daisies Challenge #55 "Pop it Up" 

My pop up is on the border at top but I also cutout the flowers and popped them on top of the original design.  Not sure you can see that from my photo.  The image has also been popped up on the background paper.  Scroll down - I did attempt a side view of this card.

Colored with Copic Markers
DP from KaiserCraft - Hummingbird Collection
Lace, cording, and rhinestone hearts from stash
Flowers from Prima
Inside of card is a sentiment from Verve and more KaiserCraft/Hummingbird papers and chipboard

Hi, There!
It was such a long day in work today!  One of those days with no sun - all rain - and just wanting to be home!  Once I got home, I was back in my mojo and finished this card for someone special in my life - Patti.  Her Mom was my best friend.  Patti and I lost our best friend in April of 2007.  I just found out that Patti is now expecting and is due next April!!  So this is going to Patti and her hubby to wish them all the happiness that will follow with this special little person that will enter their lives soon!!  Thanks for stopping by - enjoy your weekend - I will see you next week!  Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There!
Hope you are have a great Sunday afternoon.  Tomorrow is my birthday so we are celebrating with the family today.  But I have Monday and Tuesday off from work, so hubby is taking me upstate for an overnight celebration - going to a town that has lots of "crafty type stores" to browse!  Good guy  -as he has to have patience for this one ;)

I had fun coloring this design and I actually have another Delicious Doodles design colored but not designed into a card yet.  This one is called Black Widow - love this lady with her spider friends!  Now one of the challenges I am entering this card into you could not use any patterned papers (Fab N Funky) - this was a challenge for me!  So I found some sparkle papers and added some dimensional stickers.  I had to keep slapping by hands from reaching over and grabbing all those great Halloween papers I have!!! LOL

Thanks for stopping  by for a peek - enjoy the rest of the weekend and I will see you all next week!  Hugs ~CaroleAnn
