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!!!"

A little something for YOU!!!

There is a color challenge each monday at StampTV. I wanted to use my new stamp set (Yummy) from SU and the first thing I thought of when I got these colors together was a baby. I couldnt wrap my head around any other theme, so here it is. Even though I presently don't know any one that is having/or planning on having a baby any time soon. It was still so much fun to put together. The idea for the baby came to me while I was driving home from bowling yesterday, yeah....there are so many things that I should be thinking about while driving....bwahahahahahaha

Deets: I was thinking about the punches that I had and the color bashful blush always looks like skin to me, so the 1-1/4" circle is the head and a regular paper punch is the nose. I knew I wanted the barely banana cs to be the bonnet on her head, so I used my scallop punch for it. I used some ink to sponge around the edges and after gluing them together I added a face with a sharpie and highlights with a white gel pen. The green is certainly celery cs and some additional dsp that I found that matched the barely banana perfectly. The wording and corner details are from the Yummy set and 'baby' is from a set that I have had for awhile. The border punch is from Fiskars, it needed a 'little something' to finish the look....bwahahahaha...get it....'little something' .... ok never mind
Until tomorrow.......TFL
