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!!!"

I've already told you in previous posts that Jeff (my hubs) is out of town most of the time working. 
 He gets to come home approx. once a month, but once in a while the job is on a time crunch and he has to stay until they get it caught up or completed.  This is one of those times. It will be over 2 months since he has come home and we are having some serious withdrawals here. I miss my best friend and his wonderful "Sugarbear" (my nickname for him) hugs. Harlee is missing those as well and her "straight" man. They are constantly joking around and they play off each other so well. We do talk to each other several times a day; I guess its better than nothing, right?

So I made this card for him using the new Nifty Fifties cartridge. I LOVE the fifties look, even though I was a child of the sixties.  The motel sign was the perfect image.  The original title was "Sleepy" Motel, but I threw that wording away and made my own.  The font on the cart is too cool, man!!!

On the inside I wrote: Come join us !  Exclusive room available overlooking downtown Roopville. Take a ride on a new John Deere tractor. Look at the breathe taking scenery (Harlee & Crystal). Commune with nature (Booboo & Looloo). Cost? Hugs and kisses!!!!

Until later, guys and gals.....Gotta split man....TFL!!!!!
