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!!!"

Simple pleasures....

you can't beat 'em!!!!

I just love my morning coffee. Its one of my fav simple pleasures, there are a few others but I'll keep you guessing on what they are. Usually I'm perusing many, many blogs right along with you in the a.m. with a great big mug of 'leaded'. I like my coffee hot, strong and sweet; just like I like my man.....Bwhahahahahahaha. When I tell Jeff he's 'hot' he just rolls his eyes and says...{sarcastically} "Yeah, right; women are beating our door down to get to me" My response is, "Well as long as you only open the door for me" He is a very sweet man too, he always opens the door for me. Yes, car door too and he gets upset if I open it before he gets there. With him being gone so much I forget and then I shut it real quick so he can do it.....LOL. There's been a couple of times that he has forgotten, though. He said I looked like one of those Garfield dolls suctioned to the window when he looked back at me. Remember those silly things everyone had stuck to the window of their car. I was actually imitating the commercial where the woman is outside of the department store and she was saying "Open, open, open" with her face mushed up to the window. We are always giggin' each other.

Wow....I was just rambling and you were following me like a duckling behind a mama duck....bwahahahahahahaha.

Ok now to the main event.....the card!

I recently won these stamps from the D.R.S. Designs blog for submitting a tip. You can read the tip HERE (scroll down to bottom of post) !!! The card was very simple to put together, punches, color pencils, so forth and so on!!!!

If you ever have any questions on anything you see here, just ask!!! I really don't mind you asking just about anything you want, I may not answer anything and everything; but I'll sure give you some sort of response...bwahahahahahahaha!!!!

Until later, Hotties......Gotta split.....TFL !!!

Well this little duckling is happy to follow you Crystal! I like your card; it's sort of a retro look to me but I don't know why.
I can just see you plastered to the window! LOL!

i'm right behind my sister duckling, holly! i love the card - almost as much as i love my coffee. hubby does NOT drink coffee so i get to have it all. lately i'm hooked on Aldi's french vanilla cappuccino so i have that in the a.m. my regular coffee is just with cream. funny, way back when (like 30 yrs ago when i smoked) i liked my coffee light & sweet. once i stopped smoking, i stopped using sugar. and i'm still fat! go figure!

Love your coffee card! Love the oval frame and the cups on the side! Great card Crystal.

Hubby and I love having our morning coffee together! Each day we have two cups and that's it. But we sip it slowly and enjoy talking through the morning. We both like the coffee black with no sugar or milk. Every once in a while I will have some creamer but not too often. I like it strong enough to wake me up!

Crystal, sounds like you have found you a good fella. And I'm sure he knows that he's got himself a great gal too!

What a fantastic card, Crystal. You and I should meet up sometime for a few cups of java. It's my guilty pleasure as well. A day without coffee is a day full of headache for this addicted chick.

This card really is my "cuppa joe"!
