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!!!"

TAG ur it with skulls added for a little extra umph!!!!!

Today's challenge is from Modern Sugar Blvd and its to use a tag somewhere on the card. All of the DT had to come up with the challenge themes and this one was submitted by my great friend Joni. How about this??? My whole card is a tag......LOL

I love the background paper... it reminds me of an apron. I believe it is designed after a fabric that is called pillow ticking. Funny how certain papers' designs remind you of certain things.

Take a stroll on the blvd. to see how the other DT members chose to use a tag. While you're there, do a little window shopping grab you some of the new images that are available now.

A few of you were asking about colors/design that I painted Harlee's room....here are a few pics.

Every girl has to have a pink room, I guess. She picked the color herself and she wanted the accessories to be black and white....easy enough. We took her bed apart and spray painted her bed and several other things that she had in there. But then it came to deciding what designs she wanted on the wall. She likes stars, moons and hearts. But she also wanted me to incorporate a skull mural into the theme....Kids!!! I just looked at her and shook my head and said , in my best mommy voice; "I don't think so!"....Bwahahahahahahahaha!!!! Hmmmm.....so I stamped some white stars on the wall and the shelf behind her bed has hearts already on it. I remember that I had this old skull stamp that had a heart for the nose, perfect. *(No skulls were harmed in the creation of this room)* I stamped it randomly with the stars and I found those wooden star shaped boxes and stamped the skull on them and while it was wet I used black glitter. There are stars and skulls throughout the entire room on all the walls. It turned out better than I thought it would.

She went to VBS after I painted the room pink, but she didn't see the completed room until she got back home that night. She walked in and screamed and came running back out and gave me the biggest hug and said "Thank you, Mommy" Awwwwww......this from the kid that wanted a huge skull mural previously....Bwahahahahahahahahahaha.... Gotta love 'em!!!!!

Now I want to redo our bedroom.....no skulls though......LOL
Until later, Pink ladies.....Gotta split...TFL !!!
