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!!!"

No you arent having DEJA VU...

This is the real date that I was supposed to give you the whole card experience... LOL Again... this image is from Modern Sugar Blvd. Go check it out.... they have lots of 'sweet' stuff!!!!!

Here's a bonus for ya!!!
I cut out this plaque and painted it for a birthday party today. Its for a sweet little boy named Britton. His parents are friends of ours....and we want to wish him a very Happy Birthday!!!! Hope the rain holds out, its a pool par-tey....
I forgot how it felt to paint...I havent picked up my brushes in forever it feels like. I love the feel of the paint on the brush when I'm painting....even if I'm just painting a room...I know; I'm weird!!! Bwahahahahaha. I will have to start throwing in some painting as well as my card making, what ya think??? Would you like to see some occasional paint creations thrown in???
Until later, Cupcakes...... Gotta split....TFL !!

Wow Crystal, this is really something! Why don't you paint on your cards? Some rubber stamp convention I went to a few years ago there was this booth that had the most awesome cards on display, and she painted her images with acrylic paints and a little bit of water. She sold a video telling how to do her technique but even with the video I never did get the hang of it! I think she called it floating color technique.
