Cute card!!! What beautiful memories of your grandmother. I miss my Nana too!!!

Janet Swofford

Such a pretty card! I think Tess can do anything! And I love the "paperdoll" idea that you can change her clothes with different DSP. That is so cool. The shimmer you added to the buttons and ribbon is such a nice touch. After all,a girl can never have too much shimmer:-) Thanks for sharing!
The picture of you and your Grandma is just precious. It doesn't matter how long ago you lost her,there will always be a whole in your heart from her loss. She sounds like she was a very special woman!!!
Take care my Alberta friend:-)
Inky hugs,


What can I say? You have made me want to own this Tess Stamp Set. I keep resisting but you are breaking me down. It's just a wonderful card...with great color choices as usual and all of the Carole' Anne charm to go with it.

You're Grandma looks like she loved you a lot....I'm sure she is so proud of who you are today.

Thanks for sharing the card and part of your memories with us.

Robin Merriman

Wow, I think this is my favorite I've seen of yours - great job here! Love the dyed ribbon and the buttons!

I know what you mean about your Grandmother - I was very close to mine too and she went to heaven 12 years ago, right before my daughter was born. We like to say that she got to meet Emma first and tell her what to expect! Thanks for sharing your memory and photo with us!


Beautiful Tess card again. Love the picture of you and your Grandma, that is truly a specail one, thanks for sharing.


Really great card! You have very original ideas on how to accesorize Tess. Thanks for sharing about the card and your grandma!


Love the Tess card. You are great at coming up with ideas for her- and that shimmer paint. so pretty

Del Owen

What an amazing card, Carole Anne! Thank you for the step-by-step directions as well. Love how you colored the buttons & ribbon to coordinate with your card...just beautiful. Thank you, too, for sharing your memories of your grandmother as well as the photo of the two of you on your wedding day. I can tell she's a very special lady.

Heather Arsenault

It's always fun to see what you come up with for Tess. :)


l just love your creativity and the techniques that you take the time to document and share with all of us! THANK YOU THANK YOU so much! Blessings - Mary

Deanne K

What a great memory - thanks for sharing.

Totally FABULOUS card!!!! Loving the step by step!


Now who would have thought to use the shimmer paint on the buttons?!!! The card looks fantastic, great job and thanks so much for sharing your creativity with all of us.

Also, I enjoyed the picture of you and your grandmother. It was easy to see the love from each of you to the other.


Another gorgeous card using Tess. I love to see how you fashion her wardrobe. :-) Your grandma was a special lady. Nice for you to have wonderful memories.

Candy Mills

Lovely card, Carole'Anne!
Thanks for sharing the memory of your grandmother today. The picture of the two of you is wonderful. Sorry today is a sad one for you ~ Hugs, Candy

Carole'Anne! Are you kidding me?! That ribbon is ridiculous! Whenever I ink up my white ribbon, even if it dries overnight, the ink runs onto my card...just alittle bit but still enough to be annoying! I love the way you dyed the ribbon and buttons! That card is amazing...once again. You never fail to impress! :)

Christina D

It's a beautiful card. I love how you color everything to match, It came together so pretty!

Colett R

Nice to see Tess again. Awesome trick dying the buttons and ribbon! Very cool.
Thanks for the glimpse into your past ... special memories to hold dear.


All of your cards are amazing! You have such a talent. I love how you dye the ribbons, something I've not tried yet.
And thank you for sharing your grandmother with us ~ even though it's been 10 years it's still stings, I know. My Dad's been gone 13 and not a day goes by that I don't think of him.
Love your blog Carole Anne!


What beautiful memories with grand'ma, thank you.
Your card is also very beautiful, you never fail to amaze me.
I love you, mom

Sandi MacIver

Love your card, and the picture of your grandma, she looks like a special lady. Enjoy your memories today, and hugs to you


I really like this card. After seeing all the great cards you've made with this set, I think I am going to have to break down and buy it:)

jennifer reynard

Oh this is just stunning! I love the way you colored your ribbon! That's so clever!


This is absolutely wonderful how you pulled everything together. Great card and great job!

great card. We can tell you love totally tess stamp set. Grandmas are special I miss my who died just after her 93 birthday, but sadly who mind left us long before that. So it great to celebrate them at a very happy moment in life and mine too is a photo of use at my wedding which sits pride and place in the kitchen, the room she loved to be in.
