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!!!"

You can complain....

because a rose bush has thorns...or you can rejoice because a thorn bush has roses.

Some sayings have so much meaning. I love the one above..... I find something to smile about everday. Life is so sweet......its hard not to smile. I tell my family when its my time to go I don't want the traditional crying and carrying on. I want them to celebrate my life, not my death. So, I told them to have a party....and tell all the good things that they remember about me. May be a short party....bwahahahahahahahaha!!! Don't worry, I plan on being here a very long time and I'm gonna go kicking and scratching all the way; I have way to much stuff to finish yet. LOL

OK, now to one of the things that I have finished.....the card.

I have used this stamp before, but I did it in yellows. I sewed on the ribbon to the bella rose dsp. Layered it all together and used my white gel pen to do the dippy dots.

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