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've been framed......

Glitterbabe's Challenge for this week is sponsored by JLJ Designs 
and you have to create a card with a frame.  I chose to frame my images with the crack MS border punch and then outline squiggly lines with a white gel pen.  The images too cute, don't ya think?
When I saw the candy corn I immediately thought of a party hat, and the pumpkin was the perfect "head" to  put it on. I used scraps to cut the eyes and the mouth and glued on some googly eyes. Ribbon was added to the bottom of the candy corn to give it that party hat feel.  I colored the candy corn with Bic markers and the pumpkin with color pencils, OMS, and blended w/ a stump. I embossed it with an animal print folder. Makes it look like a bumpy,warty ol' punkin. Attached everything to the card base and ta da!!!!  A card is born....!!!

Until later, my sweet punkins..........Gotta split......TFL!!!!
