About Me

My Photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

Two treats for you today....

Yep...two treats... You get two cards for the low, low price of one click. (Notice I posted twice today!)
The card above is for the "Color Throwdown" blog (http://colorthrowdown.blogspot.com/) . I normally dont do color challenges, because I may not be in that "color" mood that day. But today was different, I love the combo for today. The colors are: As soon as I saw the night of navy I thought of a night sky. I had this tent image from 'Doodle Factory" that I thought would go well with the color scheme. I punched the stars with a hand-held punch, notice on the left side of the sky I even punched the "big dipper" constellation, pretty smart huh? The sign is from "Studio G", dollar stamps from Michaels. The large sticker (explore) is from my stash. I colored the tent using my watercolor pencils , and I distressed the edges of the cardstock. I used a pair of my shaped scissors for the grass and I used a sponge to add ink around the edges as well. TFL
