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!!!"

Grillin' like a villain....

I love this BBQ guy....you're gonna laugh when I tell you where I found the image...bwahahahahaha. I was browsing online coloring book images and found this guy. Is he too cute or what??? He looks like my sweety...Jeff (I even added a mustache). Actually I'm gonna give this to him for Father's Day. Jeff loves to grill, even when it raining... Though I doubt I would ever get him to wear a hat like that, or an apron....but I bet he would look cute....bwahahahahaha. Don't worry, I know what you're thinking; that Jeff will see this card before Father's Day. Nope wrong, he nevers reads my blog... I told him that he ought to, 'cause you may never know what I might reveal on here.....Hahahahaha.... I sized it to my liking and printed it out...easy peasy, mac 'n cheesy!!! Of course I colored it with color pencils, mineral spirits and a stump. The hotdog and the word "grillin' " are from those clear stamps in the dollar bin at Mikeys. The 'happy' is from a word sentiment that I got from hobby lobby in the clearance isle.....as you can tell, I'm all about saving me some money.... And to top it off, I made the giggle dots....the blue dots on the side... I used a blue glitter hot glue stick and dropped glue onto my pad and let them cool. Then I glued them on using my tombow glue. The chefs hat and the front of the grill is paper toile, to add more dimension. Oh I almost forgot...I used my black sharpie to draw the squiggly lines that you see also. This is inspired by a sketch challenge from the High Hopes Stamps Challenge Blog.... I still reeling from the news of the DT... I can't wait to get started!!!! Until later...TFL

I'll just bet Jeff is as handsome as this guy - if not more! Because, I think YOU ARE GORGEOUS!!! Now, my hubby WOULD wear the hat & apron. Too bad he talks about grillin' more than he does it! But he sure looks good in the hat & apron!! LOL!
