Hi, There!

I know it is way too early for snow here on the East Coast but this is the image I chose for my last spot as Guest Designer for our Colour Crazy Challenge that starts on Sept. 21.  

I hope you can join in for this challenge and it is always ATG but please remember you must have something on your project that is hand colored.  A shout out to Ruth for inviting me as a Guest Designer - this was lots of fun so thank you for this opportunity!!

Our sponsor is The Paper Shelter and I love their images and background papers too!  
Thank you to our sponsor:

This may be my last post for a little while, but I plan to be back before the end of this year.  Thanks for all your comments and taking a peek at what I create.  Many wishes to all for a blessed Fall Season that is coming our way, stay well, till next time ~ Hugs and blessings, CaroleAnn

Hi, There!

First, my thoughts and heartfelt prayers are with everyone along the wide path of Hurricane Florence.  Let there be provisions, strength, and comfort for all those in need.

Cooler weather arrived here and gave me a burst of energy and I had my first cup of Pumpkin Spice Latte so that explains this card fully for me!!!  LOL

Thanks for stopping by and hope to get in one or two more posts before next Friday and then I will be quiet for about a month and then hopefully back again.  Until my next post, blessings and hugs ~ CaroleAnn

BEE HAPPY - Even with technical problems!!!

Hi, There!

I surprised myself with getting this card done so just had to get it posted.  Then realized my camera SD card would not work in my pc.  I am hoping it is the card and not an imaging problem on my computer's side.  I use an old camera (Canon PowerShot) and the SD card is probably as old as the camera:(

So I just took a picture from my old camera view screen with my iPhone and tried to load it up here - poor quality but it gives you an idea of what I made - I think!!!!  

I do not have the card in front of me as I have already sent it out to my sister.  So from my photo, I am trying to remember how I finished it off!!!  LOL  Thanks for stopping by, hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

This is a shaker card and the stamped images, and paper are all from a magazine freebie.  It even had an embossing folder of a honeycomb strip.  Love this month's edition.    

The flowers I fussy cut and mounted to frame front.  The embossed sentiment was cut out with a flag die cut.  Beehive and bee were embossed and colored and mounted to the acetate front at the top.  Inside the frame is the paper from the set which says - Bee Happy and Beeutiful with little bees flying around.  The other background paper is gold embossed honeycomb.  Really great freebie from UK magazine for card makers!!!!
