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!!!"

Friends...young and old....


I had a surprise visit from some of my family yesterday.... If any of them are reading this....OMGoodness how I love you all !!!

It was from my mommas side of the family. I haven't seen them in so long. They were asking about me and my family and both my uncles were surprised to learn that I am a grandmother now.....wow me too, bwahahahahaha. My Uncle Bruce said that he still saw me as a little young'un. Funny, 'cause I was making this card for a challenge when they pulled into the driveway and thought how appropriate. Well, first let me tell you how I looked...hahahahaha... I was wearing an old pair of sweats and my hair had not been combed and no makeup, boy was I a sight. The house was a little messy too....ouch!!! But they are family right.....so they will (hopefully) overlook that.
Ok, now to the card....enough of my nostalgia.
I found this stamp at Big Lots and thought it would make a great image since I am a substitute teacher. I love the little kids...all they really want is love and attention. The "friend" stamp if from a level 2 hostess gift, its called "A Little Somethin' ". I used very vanilla, dsp, and a 3-d flower accent (that I purchased for my scrapbooking), and chocolate chip craft ink. Until later...and maybe no surprise visitors (but I'm very glad they did)....TFL
