Hi, There!

Have you noticed all the slothing going on out there on the handmade cards?  I am not a fan of the sloth but this poor guy perhaps should have just stayed in bed for the day!!!  LOL 

Okay, before you get too bored with me - this is my last image from the same SU Stamp set called Back On Your Feet.

I did enjoy making all these cards and plan to continue making more for my get well stash - as they just make me smile as I am coloring them up.  Cute images.   Thanks for stopping by and visiting, hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There!

Here is another fun fold card for my get well card stash.  Once again I am using the stamp set from Stampin Up called Back On Your Feet.  I just think the expression on this giraffe's face says it all!!!!  LOL

This fold is called Double Dutch Gate Fold and I found this at  Thank you, Cindy!  There are so many creative SU demonstrators out there that you could spend hours just looking at all their wonderful inspirations and not getting any of your own done!!!  LOL  Or end up spending too much money on the wonderful stamp sets that SU has (guilty but happy)!!!!

Thanks for visiting with me again and I hope you have a weekend full of creativity!!!  Hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There!

I never get around to making get well cards but once I received this stamp set from SU I just had to put it to use.  Can you see why?  The images are just too cute and I found a new fun fold card to try and had some fun with it all.  Thanks for taking a peek.  Tomorrow I will have another get well card.  Till then, hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There

In my stash, I found these two wooden stamps from PSX dated 1999 - Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy.  I just had to stamp a few of them.  I decided they are staying here too.  Not being very productive with my purging!!!  LOL

And this is the card I designed for them.  It was fun to color them and fussy cut them out.  Brings back memories of my childhood.  These were loved dolls in my family and I loved the storybooks we had on Raggedy Ann & Andy.  Thanks for taking a peek, be blessed always ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There!

I almost missed this day but better late than never.  I used a number of different stamp sets here to make this card.  I saw this at a few different YouTube videos - the double Z fold card and I had so much fun making this.  

The heart on the front of the card is an SU stamp and I glued a padded heart in the center.  The inside heart is stamped and mounted with a wobble from MFT so it moves!!!  Love that!!!

The sentiment is stamped from Stampin Up - the Heart Bundle kit.  The hearts are stamped and then punched out with the punches from that kit.  

Papers and image from Wild Rose Studio - Always and Forever (papers), Kitty Picnic is the name of the image.  So sweet!  I added glitter (of, course) and the heart gems for sparkle:) 

The image is colored with Copic markers and framed with a Lawn Fawn stackables stitched frame die cut.  Used MFT cloud stencil in the background.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you feel loved because you are and not just by me;) - hugs and blessings~CaroleAnn

Hi, There!

All I do is look at this image and she sure looks lovestruck to me.  Maybe, even hypnotized!!!
In any case, she was fun to color up.  This is another oldie - wooden stamp from Uptown Rubber Stamps.  

The frame around the image is from Lawn Fawn stackables.  The papers used by Kaiser Craft - Blessed.  The heart rhinestones from my stash.  Some glitter on her heart, glossy accents on her eyes and some Wink of Stella in her hair!!  Fun card to make.  Thanks for peeking, hugs, and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There!

Getting some heart cards done - to be used whenever.  No Valentine's sentiments so it leaves these cards eligible for any occasion card:)  Both cards have a heart tag that you pull out to see your message.

The card on the right is going to my sister.

The bear image is from Darcie K-3769 - not sure they are available any longer.  The sentiment stamped is from "Stampin Up" dated 1995!!!  That is when I started stamping and have never looked back.  It also explains why my little room is so stuffed with supplies from everywhere since then!!!  This bear is just so sweet, one of my faves!
