Hi, There!  UPDATE:  You can find the EastWind digital images on Etsy.

Yeap, it's me again and now with card number two made with the digital image called Baby Its Cold from a retired company called The EastWind by artist Unky.  Loved her artwork and as I said in previous post, I do have many of her digital images and I love them all!  So here she is again but colored in the true Christmas colors of Red and Green.  Thanks for stopping by, and hope it is not too boring with using the same image but she is really cute and fun to color!!!  Big hugs and lots of blessings ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There!

What fun it was to color this image.  This is a digital image from Aurora Wings - one of my many favorites.  It is going to get cold enough here tomorrow night that I could just possibly have these icicles hanging off me too - but I would not look this elegant.  She is really beautiful.  I have to color another one up but I am thinking maybe purples and blues!  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving to those celebrating, so much to be thankful for in my family this year.  Thank you for visiting me.  Blessings to all, big hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There! 

I made this birthday card thinking I was going to used it for my granddaughter for her 3rd birthday but I found out she is having a Tea Party Style birthday so I pulled out some other stamps from Polkadoodles that I will now create another card for her!!!  LOL  Thought I was ahead of the game - but, hey, birthday cards are always in demand!!!  Thanks for stopping by and be blessed, hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Okay, thanks to my friend, Carol, I now know that this image is from Eureka Stamps and it is Girl Balloon Holder digital stamp.  :)  She is colored up in Copic Markers:
E0000 E000 E11 E95  Y11 Y13 Y32   R81 R83 R85  V01 V12 V04
Balloon die-cuts used after I used some distress oxide inks on Mixed Media paper.  The background paper I have had forever from DoCrafts/Kraft Notes 6 x 6   Stamped the sentiment "Celebrate" on vellum and embossed in gold.  Used some cut outs from the designer paper here and there.

Hello Everyone - I am back!!!!

So happy to say I can now spend more time at my art table and this is what I painted for my first post back after my hip replacement surgery!!!  I am now back to taking my walks too!!  Praise the Lord as all went well!

I just left this image mounted onto a white card base and used a Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Frame for it.  The digital grey scale image is from Alena Lazareva/Fantasy Fairy and I have had it for ages.  I used Copic Markers and I love the soft look of the colors that happens with the grey scale.  I could not make up my mind whether to use glitter on her wings or not - so I left them as is - for now;)

I know you have all been busy with holiday cards already, maybe I will have one or two to share but I am just getting back to coloring and have so many images I love that I do not know which one to start next!!!!  Till next time, big hugs and blessings, ~ CaroleAnn
