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 galore!!!!

This first one is from Squigglefly... Its a baby card, any gender with purple. Isnt this a cutie of an image. She is having so much fun all by herself.

Digi Shack is next...clouds is the theme for this one. Cloud of any shape or size is required, how easy is that. This fairy godmother seemed to land on the wrong cloud.

Last, but surely not least is MyGrafico. Teal and brown and we used images from the new garden theme set. I cut out each layer to make the flower more dimensional. Added some glitter on the stem.
Getting slowly back into the swing of things, so bear with me. Finding it hard to get motivated and organized for some reason.
My sister and I are going to write a book about the adventures of our mama. Our mama was a very incredible woman. She could take an engine apart and put it all back together again, all the while wearing her big diamond ring. She always had guns loaded and ready to shoot at a moments notice. You never, ever told her that she couldnt do something. She would break her neck to prove you wrong. Hmmmm........ sound familiar Jeff..... Bwahahahahahahahahaha. It will be a book of short stories and as soon as I get it started I will add an excerpt from one of the stories for you guys to critique. I will do all the writing, my sister is going thru old pictures to add. We hope to get it published!!!! Got lots to do, Harlee and I will be leaving sunday to goto California to spend a week with Jeff. I need to get all my cards finished and pre-posted before we leave.
Until later, My friends.........Gotta split.....TFL !!!!!
