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!!!"

I "DIG" it!!!

This is my first card made from an image from Squigglefly... I was accepted to join their new design team.... Yippee!!!! I think I'm gonna change the I "dig" gardening to I "dig" It !!! Whatcha think??? Isnt that just the cutest image you have ever seen?? They have loads to choose from, click on the link above to check 'em out!!!
While you are out there in the WWW; you need to check out the Squigglefly blog for a chance to win some blog candy, all ya have to do is follow the recipe to make a card like the one I made, NO, not exactly like mine...silly, bwahahahaha!!!
You have to use 1 squigglefly image, 2 designer series papers, 3 embellishments, (see the pattern?? ) and don't forget 1 large alpha (gotcha on that last one, huh?) you can choose chipboard, sticker, draw it, how every you chose to show off that letter. There are lots of great examples on the blog of the other DT members interpretation of the recipe.... I used my color pencil technique to color in the image.... See the blue spots on the back DSP, they were a light blue, I even colored them in so they would coordinate well with the image. You gotta do, what ya gotta do right??? Bwahahahahahaha!!! To color my images; I layer my colors to make them more vibrant. Its very easy to do, lay down a base color, remembering to leave white spots/bare spots for highlights, and then I layer a second/darker color for shade and shadow. You just have to remember where your light source is going to be coming from. Hope this helps ya just a little.
I want to thank all the sweet and wonderful ladies that have welcomed me with open arms and hearts at Squigglefly....great bunch of ladies.....
Until later, daisies.....Gotta split....TFL !!
