Hi, There!

My son-in-law turned 50 last week and yes, I am late with my card!!!  Just had to make him one that I know would put a smile on his face.  Made a shaker card which I have not made in quite some time and it was fun!!

I had a whole bunch of August birthdays to get done and just took so long to make them all.  My time is limited at how long I can sit due to some arthritic and hip problems but I am working around it so far - slow but sure;)

Will be going in for hip replacement next month so I will be out of the game of making cards for a while but plan to be back as soon as I am up to it.  Perhaps by October, I should be up and running, well, maybe not running!!!!  LOL

Thanks for stopping by, hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

Card Recipe:
The image is from AI/Deep Breath and colored with Copic Markers.  I used a Frame die-cut from Whimsey Stamps called Shaker Frame Rectangle.  Acetate and foam added to the frame and then the fun Toppings from Queen & Co. and some sequins from my stash!!  Stamped an extra cake so I could put it on the front with a 3D foam.

Hi, There!
Another challenge has started at Colour Crazy Challenge Blogspot for August 24th.  Hope you can find time to join in!  Just remember you need to show something on your card/project that has been hand colored.  Our sponsor for this month is:
I love Polkadoodles and have a number of their Winnie stamps and can never make up my mind which to color first.  

But for my second post as a Guest Designer, I chose this image, Winnie Wonderland Time and I gave my card creation more of a fall/Halloween theme to it:)  I think I am just trying to keep cool with all these heat waves going on.  My next card is definitely going to be snowflakes and snowballs!!!  LOL

Thanks for stopping by, until next post stay cool, hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn
