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!!!"

A Whimsy thank you....

for a Whimsy Stamps Challenge on the WSC blog here. The challenge this week is to make a thank you card. This is what I came up with. The green background paper has those tropical leaves all over it, so I cut out two to use for the computer generated saying. That monkey cracks me up....I chalked some subtle clouds behind him using my cloud maker and powdered chalk from HERE. Swing on over there to join in the challenge and win a prize......its easy, like falling out of a tree.


Can't have enough thank you cards in your stash....the simpliest of things to do is send a card to someone. Yes, you can say thank you a dozen times; but when you send a card it just bumps it up a notch because you spent a little more effort and after all we are all 'visual' creatures....especially men....bwahahahahahaha!

I will send this card to JEFF (my sweetheart...he's out of town again working) for hanging in there for what seemed liked forever (3-1/2 years....arrrgghhh) for my divorce to become final. He is a SUPER dad to Harlee, I couldnt ask for anyone better. I met him about 3 yrs ago and he does nothing but spoil us two!!!!

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

Fantastic Crystal...what a fun way to say thanks, and you're right about bumping up the thank you factor when you send a card. Whoever gets this one will surely get a smile as well!

Crystal, my first thought was "Oh I could send that card to so many people!" It's perfect for those who have hung in there with me through Bryan's surgery and recovery! I'd have to make tons of them though! :)

I love the image! You can't help but smile when you see that monkey! Great job!

Ahhh how sweet the card and the honey! We are in a melded family as well and my DH and my youngest son are like siamese twins. They love the same things, love each other and can always be found with their heads together over football, music and politics. I think it's because my DH has finally found his soulmate I'm just icing on the cake LOL
