- 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 4 grandchildren that I love to pieces. Hope you enjoy my ramblings and my creations...and remember "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

I went to a book signing of my friend, Linda George; yesterday. It was at a local gym and that place was packed. They had all kinds of demos going on and freebies and food, It was amazing. Below is a pic of Linda signing my copy.... she is the cutest thing, she's all of about 5 feet nothin'(bwahahahahahahaha) and as sweet as she can be. I love her dearly!!! I started reading her book last night....it's about her and how she became an In-home care 'nurse'. She really doesn't like the word nurse, but that really is what she is. It also contains stories about some of her patients and how they've touched her life. She works with the mentally challenged, handicapped and other special needs people. SHE ROCKS!!!After the book signing I went to my sister's house and we all went out to dinner and when we get together its a laugh riot. We pick on each other and tell stories and just have the best time. I was gone all day, I didn't get home till 1 a.m. this morning. I'm sitting here typing this, drinking my coffee and yawning, bwahahahahahahahaha.
I'm going into my studio today and knock somethings out and I'll be back tomorrow with a little sumpin' sumpin'!!!Until later, faithful readers......Gotta split.........TFL!!!!

This brings me to my card or today: I have a friend that actually had a book published and she is having a booksigning today and I'm going to give her my support. Her book is titled "Those Special People". You can get it online at most of the book store websites. I haven't read the book yet, but she tells me its stories of 'special' people that she has worked for and cared for. She is an in-home care nurse and she has a lot of patients that have mental disabilities. She's a very 'special' person herself. So I made this card for her. The image I found online and colored it using my colored pencils and OMS. The wording is from a clear stamp set. I think its very appropriate for the occasion. The books almost look like they are floating..... I think these books have a little magic in them.
So to all those budding writers/authors, keep on pecking at those keys...because you could be the next big seller. Keeping my fingers crossed for my book.

This first one I made for a friend from high school, he is currently in the hospital re-couping from Esophageal cancer. He had surgery and he doing great. They are currently asking for donations and I will slip a little something into the card. The image is from Dustin Pike and I colored it with my color pencils.
This second one if a tribute of sorts for all the teachers out there. I sub every once in a while and you can't pay me enough to do that job full time. Bless their hearts!!!! You have 20 kids all pulling at you for 8 hrs. You have to repeat yourself ALL day. You have to remind them about everything.... Whheewwww its exhausting!!! Bwahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!! The bag image is an oldie from Stampin' Up! I used to be demonstrator, but it got too expensive to try and keep up with the monthly quota. But I will still buy there products...
Lastly, but not least......LOL Is a card I made for my sweetie... It's a tribute to him giving me his last name. I LOVE my new last name. ROOD; if you look up the definition you will see that it means crucifix or cross. That's why I chose the background paper. No, we aren't so-called "church" people but we both do have strong beliefs and are very spiritual. I have nothing against church at all...to each his own!!!!! I'll be back tomorrow; same time, same place, same channel!!!! Bwahahahahahahahahahaha!!!
Until later, MY Bonus prizes.............Gotta split..........TFL!!!!!!!!!!

Here is another 'Happy' card for you.... I saw this on youtube the other day....a talented lady was making a 3-D rose out of the circle scallop punch. It looked easy and it was; and the affect is awesome. If you want to view this video click HERE. Kudos to Valita for an awesome embellie. The greenery is a MS punch and the ribbon slots is also a punch.
Anywho, I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do with this 'high' I've been on lately but I'm sure I can find something worthy to do or then again maybe just something FUN..... Bwahahahahahahahaha.
Until later, Rosie cheeks.............Gotta split........TFL!!!

This image is from Hambo stamps, I colored it with my color pencils and the 'salt' around the rim is MS glitter and the 'ice' is one of those lg. clear flat dots and I just cut it into cubes and stuck them on.
For me..... in general I'm a very happy person. Life's too short to go around with a sour puss plastered on your face. I have a wonderful hubby, great kids and grand kids . We have everything we need and most things that we want. Hubby has a great job (well, other than having to travel all the time) but all in all a great job. I have the best friends evah!!!!!!!!! Wow, somebody took there "happy" pill today.......!!!!
