Hi, There!

This is my last post for the holiday season and I will be back in January - so Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year  and Peace to all is what I wish for you!!

For my last card and challenge entries of 2015 -

I love the new paper by Graphic 45 - A Christmas Carol!!  I love that movie - with Alastair Sim!! Not the colorized one either - the old time black and white movie!!  Grew up with all these movies.  I have some of these movies in a special Christmas box so my next movie to watch would be The Bishop's Wife - Loretta Young, David Nevin, Cary Grant!!!  

Anywhos - I used some of the elements in the DP pack for the window area and the background I created with distress inks and a brick stencil from Tim Holtz.  The window is an Impression Obsession die cut and the sentiment is from Graphic 45 A Christmas Carol.  Some rhinestones from Recollections. Thanks for stopping by and, if you wish, I have posted another card made with the same elements for you to take a peek at except that sentiment is from Inkadinkadoo - thanks so much for being with me for 2015.  Looking so forward to some new beginnings in 2016 for me!!  Till next time,  Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There!

I hope you are well and enjoying some sunshine where you live.  We had plenty of sunshine today and it was very mild for a December Day!  But soon we may be experiencing some of these pretty snowflakes that this princess has surrounding her!  I used some of Tracy's papers again and I love the colors.  I used the following Copics to color her up:
Skin E0000 E000 E00 E01 E02  
Hair R0000 R000 R00 R01 R02  
B0000 BG000 B00 B01
Eyes B0000 B00 B01 B02 B04 B16
 Dress & Snowflakes B0000 BG000 B00 B01 B02 B04 B16
Papers from Tracy Wray and I used Spellbinders circle diecut.  The Bow Corner is from Memory Box.  Stardust, liquid pearls both in blue, pink and white, sequins here and there.  Sentiment from Lili of the Valley stamps.  Stay well, thanks for stopping by, till next time Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There!

Something we seem to need a little more of these days is Peace!  So that is my wish to you - Peace of mind, heart and soul.  I wish a blanket of peace could cover the world and keep us all safe.

For my card I used a stamp from Inkadinkadoo.  I stamped it in black and used stardust for the stars. Background is done with distressed inks.   Snowflake punch from Martha Stewart - I had trouble using the beautiful paper for these snowflakes but the color complimented the distress inks so well and the paper is a freebie from Tracy Wray .  Used rhinestones from Recollections for center of snowflakes.  I have another card in the works using more of Tracy's beautiful papers along with an image from Artbymiran for next post.  Thanks for stopping by, till next time, Peace and Hugs ~ CaroleAnn
