Thank you Michelle :)


Here is my sample card made with "Goldilocks" from Michelle Perkett! Isn't she just darling holding her Teddy Bear. I just love Michelle's whimsical images. What strikes me is on her woman/girl images she always draws the best hair!!! lol I know that is kind of quirky of me, but I love "big" fluffy curly hair. See what I mean with Goldilocks! That hair is to die for!!!

This is my sample card using the Halloween images from Sugar Creek Hollow. The talented Tracey who is on our Design team is our sponsor this week. This Halloween set is awesome. I love the swirls I just in the corners. I placed a lot of crystals in the curves.

S0 what do you think about these spiders??? OOooo I am so scared of spiders!!! I used to think they were so interesting when I lived in Connecticut. But when I moved to Georgia...well my experiences have not been pleasant. I put my hands up under a dolls dress to fluff her petticoat and put my hands right in a good size web with about 6 spiders the size of quarters. I have had several fall on me at home and work....and do you know they make a clicking noise-oh yeah....not cool!!! Thanks for stopping by today. So what do you think? Do you have any good Spider stories???

For once in my life I am speechless!!! My husband says I am the only woman he knows that can talk an onion bag into holding water!!! This is just truly over the top. Not only did you go over and above on the front of your card, but you have done BOTH flaps inside AND a tag! Like...4 projects in one. My eyes still cannot believe it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making these images look SOOOOOOOoooo GREAT!

Okay, do I have to do this again Carol? HOW MUCH TIME DID IT TAKE YOU TO CREATE NOT JUST ONE, BUT TWO MAGICAL CARDS THIS WEEK????? Girl, I don't know why I'm AMAZED every time I see your creations as I should be so used to it by now; but, every one of yours is AMAZING in and of itself. Your details are the most spectacular I've ever seen and the way you decorate from front, to side, to envie and all in b/t is so enviable. What fun it is to come see what you are up to. Will surely miss being on the MM team, but you know I will always keep up with you guys!!!!

I LOVE the cards Carol! You know how much I love your work but this Halloween card is so awesome - truly a work of art! :<)

I too am partial to "big" hair. :<) As my hair is very straight - I would love to have just one day of waking up with "big" hair and lots of curls so that I could just wash and go! :<)

Wishing you a good day today!

Carol An AWESOME Halloween card!! I am going to make some Halloween cards for my grandchildren, this will be wonderful inspiration for their cards. Love all those punches you have - you and Martha Stewart must be close personal friends by now because you spend so much money with her. I am not surprised at the spider webs because anyone who has a row of chickens would most assuredly have spider webs too!!

marilynprestonn said...

You did some mighty pretty cards again!!! Now, I have to tell you how your comment on my fishing card made me all teary, 'cuz I used to fish with my dad, and though I thought it was sometimes tedious and long sitting there with no fish on my hook, he would just tell me the quirkiest stories so I wouldn't notice. Awww, I miss my dad too. Had to tell you, sweet Carol, thank you for sharing that with me and the whole world maybe LOL

Hugs, Peggyxo
