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!!!"

Challenges and away for just a bit....

First challenge is from MyGrafico.... Its a fruity delight...check it out to see what I mean.

This next one is from Whimsy Stamps Challenge blog. Christmas in July!!!! BRRRRR!!! This giraffe needs a lot of scarf to his neck warm. I hand drew the scarf on lt. blue paper using my white gel pen. Sled on over to the blog to see what all the rest of the team has done.


This will be the last cards posted for at least the next few days. I have told you before that my sisters husband is under hospice care and I have been spending every waking moment there. The nurse now thinks he only has 24 to 48 hrs. left and I promised my sister I would be there everyday until she doesn't need me anymore. So, I probably won't be posting anything for the next few days. My heart really isnt in it anyway. I'm anxious when I'm not there and can't concentrate on anything really. But, I'll be back with a vengence and I will need the laughter when I return. Love all you guys and I know you all will understand !!!!
Update: My brother-in-law passed away this morning....I will be very busy for the next few days......Thanks in advance for everyone's concern!!!

Until later, Blog FRIENDS...Gotta split.........TFL !!!

Hang in there kiddo - stamping can bring back sanity in an otherwise insane world.

I will miss you while you are gone, but you won't be gone for long,
In the days that pass without you lass,
I will certainly miss your sass!!

hahahaha i'm a poet!!
