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!!!"

Bloom.....




I have a thing for yellow and white flowers....of course my fav is Shasta daisies, but I didnt have a stamp with a bunch of daisies, so this was the next best thing... The basket and the flowers are two seperate stamps... I colored them using my color pencils, gamsol and stump.... Its a lot brighter IRL. I also used my paper crimper to emboss the dsp behind the image. You see the "bloom" sentiment. I recently acquired a Dymo label maker. Yeah its the old version of squeezing the handle to make the colored plastic tape imprint the letters. Very simple machine to use, very retro. I like how the greens matched and I didnt plan it that way....dont you love when that happens...bwahahahahahaha. The sketch is from a challenge over at Shirleys 2 girls blog. If you want to make a card for the challenge the deadline is fast approaching, so get to stamping!!! But wait, not yet...you have to finish reading "MY" blog first silly. Bwahahahahaha. I also wanted to show you what Harlee did yesterday... She has been out of school for spring break this past week and driving me bananas .....HA! So I told her to grab some scraps and some punches and make something. This is what she came up with...pretty suh..weet huh??? A future creator in the making.... Love it!!!


Well, thats all for today and Until later....TFL

My GD loves to stamp with me - she's 3-1/2. I never stamped until 2001 and I was in my 50's - YIKES! Maybe I can get her started early - LOL!

Hugs,

That is a very pretty card. And what a cute bunny! Yowza! I never would have taken you for a grandma . . . you must have mimicked Dolly Parton or something and gotten married at age 14!
