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!!!"

Another Dustin Pike freebie...

I think this would make a great card for a baby, or a young'un of any age really. This is another one of the cards that I submitted for Dustin's DT call. Still keeping my fingers crossed for that....making it hard to do anything else though...bwahahahahahahahaha, with my fingers being crossed all the time!!! Very simple card really, Basic layout and colored the image using my color pencil technique. Have I mentioned how much I love to color...bwahahahahahaha. Its really become an obsession. I print out images during the day and color them at night while I'm watching TV, well, attempting to watch TV. The TV never gets turned on during the day around here, but after supper we all converge onto the couch and watch some of the old boob tube.Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net Yeah, even Booboo gets in on the act. Here's a pic of Booboo and I watching Jeopardy...LOL See the orange and brown blanket, thats Booboo's, he cant get on the couch unless its laid out for him. He's about 60 lbs lap love. He has a hard time getting on the couch now, he's 11 yrs old and a little overweight.... Jeff says its my biscuits and gravy thats making him that way. Yes, Booboo gets a biscuit before the rest of us do....bwahahahahahahaha. Jeff usually goes to bed before I do and Booboo has to get in the bed too (he doesnt stay long), but Booboo puts his front paws on the bed and Jeff picks up the rear....its a funny sight to behold. LOL Jeff and I play against each other for money while watching Jeopardy. I can pretty much hold my own..... see the concentration I have on my face...bwahahahahahaha Enough ratchet jawing for today.... hope you have a pleasant and relaxed day. Until later Cuties...Gotta split..TFLFree Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net

Oh Crystal, dragon is soooo sweet. You inspired me to take out my prismacolor pencils and OMS, then forced me to put them away again. LOL! I am keeping my fingers crossed for you too, which does make it harder to change my baby's diaper and comb DD's hair before school but oh well...just a few more days until the announcement, right? haha!
Give Booboo the biggest squeeze on his sweet head. I just love big puppies, they are the sweetest thing ever. My baby would crawl up on Booboo and nap if I let him. ;)
Happy Tuesday Sugar!

Fabulous card. You're totally hogging up the Dustin's here! Only kidding! If you don't get picked for the DT, I'm reading him the riot act!

You need a new avatar! That picture of you & Booboo is gorgeous - well at least BooBoo is! Gotcha!

You can stop laughing now!

Hi Crystal!! :) So happy to read your comment today. I only WISH I had more time to go blog surfing and leave more messages! (I work away from home PT and have 2 very busy girls--4H, guitar lessons, Awana, and the list goes on!) But I do love your blog also.

You asked about my bee siggy...I created the pictures with my regular photo editing software, Microsoft Picture It 7.0, and save each picture as a .bmp and then I downloaded a free program that turns it into an animated GIF called "GIF Construction". It's still a lot of work on my part--kindof like creating one of those old time Flip books, and then the GIF program just loops all the pictures together and you tell it how fast to go. Hope that helps!!

Have a Joyous day!!

Your dog is so cute! How lovable:) We are the same around here -- I don't put the TV on until evening. I would never get anything done if I had that distraction on during the day:) Regarding your card...I think you are right...it would work for any occassion. Your coloring is wonderful! I'll cross my fingers for you with the DT.

Your blog is great :0)

Dustin Pike is great isn't he? This is cute. And yes you do look like you are in deep concentration. That's okay. We complete around here with Wheel & Jeopardy except money never came in to the picture. I will have to change that.
