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!!!"

To ALL the Super Moms out there...

...you know who you are! Ok, I think EVERY mom is SUPER!!! You don't have to have a house full of kids, or bring home the bacon, or look like a super model for the hubby. You just have to be there for your kids when they need you, right? Teach them right from wrong and by all means, pay attention to them. After all thats all it comes down too really. They just want attention, but dont we all!! (crash, boom, bang, @^$#%! <----me falling off my soapbox) Bwahahahahahaha. Now, back to dealio about this card. Instyle Stamps is having a Mother's Day contest using this image. Click on the link to take you there...yeah thats it, that one. Find out all the deets for the contest, I can tell you one thing though, you have to email a certain someone to get the image send to you via email and then its your baby to create with it. This is what I came up with. See the people in the background, yeah those black outline thingies. That is a large stamp that actually has a mother sitting at a table with the rest of the family huddled around her. I masked her out to use the SM image. I left the family uncolored to give the real focus on SM. It is Her day, right? I had the metal tag in my stash and the ribbon too. Used a star punch and a sharpie to create the wording. Wouldnt you love an outfit like that one to wear on occasion to remind the family!!! Bwahahahahaha. I would!!! But then, I'm a little off kilter sometimes.....LOL My family thinks I'm an absolute nut, I'm always laughing, find a joke in every situation.
One of my nephews left a message on his facebook today saying "I sure hope I don't get that pig sickness" (Swine flu) I responded "Stay outta the STY!"
With that little bit of information, I think I will sign off for now. Until later.....Super Mommies......Gotta split....TFL!

Heyyyyy wait a second. She looks a whole lot like YOU! ;) Okay my dear, you are the queen of white spots - look at that fabulous coloring and it all makes sense! And guess what? You totally inspired me to put down my copics and take out my pencils again! I was so happy with a card I made (I'll email you a pic) until I realized I did it wrong. LOL! How's that for Super Mom? haha! Don't ever change my Wonky Punchy Crystal. You are super like this...Hugs and happy Saturday~

Yeah! She definitely looks like you! No offence, but I find the blue print very hard to read against this background. Must be my eyes are getting old too and I wear glasses! Sheesh!

The card is gorgeous and I'm sure the story is hysterical. Heck, I still luv ya anyway!

Hugs,

Crystal, this card is great! I love how you have used the background stamp. People are saying this girl looks like you, but I have to say the girl I have used on my blog today reminds me more of you. I actually thought that the whole time I was coloring her!
