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!!!"

Howwwwwwdy...y'all !!!

First off let me tell you how much I wanted to be Ellie Mae Clampett....I watched that show (Beverly Hillbillies) everytime it was on, and I still catch a rerun when I can, teehee. I wanted to be her so much that I even got a bloodhound. I didn't want any 'ol bloodhound it had to look just like Duke from the show. I loved that dog, her name was Peaches, beautiful animal.... Notice I said 'loved' (past tense), I hope she's still with us, but I don't know for sure, she was stolen out of our yard. Yep, STOLEN!!! That was many years ago and I didnt have the heart to try and replace her with another bloodhound. We have another dog now, his name is Booboo; he's a great dog too, he's getting on up in years and he's just a sweetie.
Ok, now to the important sch-tuff, the card deets:
Card base is a rust colored cardstock, and then I used grass looking dsp and cut the edge with my paper shaper scissors to resemble grass. Then I made a faux wood fence by first using mustard color cs and rubbing white ink pad across it, and then a brown and finally I drew the black lines in with my sharpie, Oh I cut out the knot hole and cut the points with my scissors.....You can't have an old fence without a knot hole can ya? I dressed Hanna (after altering the dress with my sharpie), she kinda looks like Daisy Mae from L'il Abner bwahahahahaha. I used twine for her belt and for Peaches' collar and added the silver diamond stud for her bling. Oh, I almost forgot the sky, I punched a scallop circle out and used it to mask off the clouds (made with ballet blue ink and a sponge) and then I highlighted them using my white gel pen. And last but not least I added 3 green giggle dots. Hope you like it, I had way too much fun making it..... until tomorrow...TFL

oooohweee...what a fantastic card. I also was a big fan of the BH...the reruns still crack me up! How very terribly to have your sweet peaches stolen from you. I'd be heartbroken, as I'm sure you were.

This card is awesome. So much detail, right down to the grass and knothole! You really knocked this one out of the park, girl.
