Hi, There!
Beautiful sunny day here and as I promised not a leaf card.  I have bought some new stamps from Stamping Bella and this one is called "Senior-ita" Wanda!  I just love this stamp and I can feel that big kiss coming my way.  This stamp comes with two sentiments - "Mwahhhhh!" such the title of my post and "I miss you so so much!"  Since this is October and "Breast Cancer Awareness" month, I am dedicating this card to my best friend Terry that I lost to breast cancer 6 years ago.  I miss you Terry every day and I prayer that some day we will not be having a month dedicated to this disease.  But now on a brighter note, I am sending this card to my sister because I miss her too and we can not visit each other the way we would like to due to the miles between us but I am hoping Wanda can convey the love I feel for my sister by giving her a big Mwahhhhh!  Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.  Till next time, Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There!
October!!  I love everything about October!  Even though it means colder weather is coming our way, it is still my favorite month of the year.  I love the colors of nature's fall flowers and the trees bursting with all the vibrant colors you could imagine,  the smell of pumpkin spice in all the coffee shops, wearing my sweaters and sweats and warm fuzzy slippers,  lots of blankets and comforters on my bed, warm apple cider with a cinnamin stick, and I have to mention red candied apples.  Oh, and the most important reason is - it is my birthday month!  LOL
Here is my final fall card for this season. The rubber stamp image I used is just so cute, that this is my second card with this image from Sugar Nellie called Lei-la.  She has been spruced up with my copic markers - listed below.  Thanks for visiting me during this month of October and I hope to be back with something very different from the "falling leaves"!  Take care, till next time, hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There!

Well, the weatherman on the radio said we will need our hats and gloves before the week is out and now I heard a frost for us tonight!!!  Guess I always new it was coming!  Little Tilda here looks like she is trying to hold onto her bucket of corn with the fall winds blowing around her.  Going to have some more leaves blowing down in all the winds here.  But I am still in wonder over all the beautiful colors.  This weekend we plan to take a fall trip to check out more autumn colors - guess I am stuck in an autumn time warp with my cards too!  Hope it has not been boring.  Till next time, thanks so much for coming by to say hello, Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There!

The moon is so full tonight and it is very beautiful outside. In fact all day was beautiful with all the autumn leaves.  Now if you are raking the leaves, I realize you could have a different opinion on their beauty - I know that because my son will be telling me so!! LOL  But here is another fall card with sweet "Autumn Tilda with Broom".  She has been framed with a circle die cut and mounted on some foam dots to bring it forward from the background papers. Now I think she has a little magic in her broom so I added some Stickles to show the sparkle and lots of rhinestones too!   Thanks for taking a peep at my autumn leaves!!  Stay well, until next time, hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There!

I hope you are enjoying some cooler weather and get to see some pretty fall leaves.  I love the trees around us - such beautiful vibrant colors of orange, cream, reds, yellows and golds.  I cant seem to get out of the mold of creating something to do with this time of season - October and November months are my favorite.  Well, on to my card.  I used my prize rubber stamp from Sugar Nellie called Lei-la and isn't she cute!  I loved working her up into the pretty fall colors too.
Hope you like her so Happy Fall to everyone and thanks for taking a peek, till next time, Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Hi There!
This is my final post for today!  Scroll down to see all the Halloween cards I have made!  I had lots of fun.  This card was made with a rubber stamp from Whimsy Stamps called Hazel.  She is too sweet to be a witch in the real witchie sense;)  Even her little bat is cute.  I kept her in pastel colors and used a Spellbinders die cut for a frame for her and her broom.  Love the feathers hanging off her broom!  She has been all colored up with my Copic markers and of course, stardust and liquid pearls here and there. And just had to add some stickers here and there too! Thanks so much for visiting with me today.  Enjoy your week - till next time Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Hi There!
Hope my little post finds you well and enjoying a creative day.  It is a real autumn day here today so I am in a Halloween card mood and decided to make up some cards fast by just using my stash of Halloween stickers - which I have a ton of - so this was fun.  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day.  I plan to get out in the sun today - after some inside house work!  Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

I received a bunch of these little note cards from a good friend and these stickers were a perfect match for both outside of the cards and the insides.

Another Card but larger and I used all Recollection stickers for this one both outside and inside:
