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!!!"

The whole TOOTH.....

......and nothing but the TOOTH.
I loved Hanna Stamps. I really miss that there not any more new ones coming out. I made this card for our Dentist and his staff. They are the sweetest bunch of people. They are the most considerate when dealing with Harlee. I think I'm more nervous than she is during her visits. Harlee has to have a root canal thursday, but I know she will do awesome. I cut the tooth out free-hand and then used a sharpie to outline it.

Punch bug....PINK ONE!!!!


Today I created a card using stamps from Stamp N plus Scrap N. Lots of things to choose from over there.
The 'bug' is from a set called "Feelin' Groovy". I love the new VW commercials that are out now. We used to punch each other black and blue when we were little when we saw a VW. I created the background paper using another stamp from the set using versamark and clear embossing powder.

Until later, Groovy Gals..........Gotta split.........TFL!!!!

Isn't "Peter the Pup" a little sneak. He's trying to give a present to someone and still remain their secret admirer. I think that his cute little tail will surely give him away. He is available at SNPSN to purchase....but if you leave some love here you will have a chance to win him and possibly $25 gift cert. to SNPSN. Super easy, huh? So what you waiting on???? Don't be a secret admirer.....let me know that you were here!!!! After you leave me some love, don't sneak....hop on over to Jeanne's blog and see what she has for you to admire.

Until later, stinky sneakies...........Gotta split........TFL!!!!!!

Getting better all the time!!!


One of the lastest scrapbook pages I've done. This is Booboo....now you see why we call him Booboo....bwahahhahahaahahah. I had just given him a bath and dried him with the blow dryer, yep he loves the blow dryer. Then he decided to top it off with some dried leaves. He's is such a Bad boy....but I love him anyway. He's due for another bath and I know he will probably do it again. As old as he is you would think that he wouldn't take up any new habits. But he has and this is the result. He just started to roll in the yard and he looks like he thoroughly enjoys it. Oh well I guess it could be worse.
Now onto me.....LOL Tummy seems better and no more hives. But I still have some residual itching from them. But in a few days I will be back to my 'ol self again.

Another Cricut creation.....


With the expression you can load a 12" wide piece of paper....so I was sitting there thinking one day that I could make a mat for pictures. I know all of you have seen these specialty mats and they are pretty darn expensive...they can have any variety of words, images, etc..... So, I made one with the cricut. The brown paper is cut and the rest of the paper and pics are layered behind it. The "kids"word is from a font called Tough Guyz and you can find it to download for free just about anywhere on the internet. "Grand" is a basic scroll type font from my font folder already pre-loaded....sorry I can't remember the name. I cut the brown paper first and used the shadow feature to create the larger opening for the letters on 'kids' and then I cut the ivory paper on the normal font setting to get the actual font lettering....to allow it to show behind the brown paper. I hope that explained it pretty well.
The fence is from an original sizzix die and the flowers and greenery are from punches.
Hope you like it....I LOVE how it turned out. This would make a great house warming present using the surname of the family, or for a child's room, etc...... the possibilites are endless.

Games people play.....


No....I'm not talking about mind games, or relationship games.....bwahahahahahaha.... I am referring to board games!!! This is what has been keeping me busy for the last few days. Harlee had a board game to create for a school assignment. It was for Social Studies and she had to create the game board, box, 50 Q & A's (pertaining to SS), tokens, instructions, etc..... It was a lot of fun helping her and she is so proud of the end result. We acutally played it and its a lot of fun!!!! Her daddy said that if she got an A on it, he would give her $20.....I think he's gonna have to come off the hip for this one.

Catch him before he gets away!!!


The easter bunny is getting away...hurrry!!! Umphhhh...too late!!! It looks like he has finished for this year and he's going into his hole to rest until next Easter.
Gotcha...this isnt the real Easter bunny, but its a close resemblance isnt it????? This one was made using punches ...large oval,wide oval, small oval, tail was made using boho blossom and reg. paper punch circles. Too cute......huh????
Hope the Easter Bunny made it to your house before he jumped into his hole!!!

Everything is Peachy Keen.....

It's a sketch challenge and this is my interpretation of the sketch. I recently found Peachy Keen Stamps thru another blog. I purchased the "faces" clear stamps. They work with the Sizzix doll body perfectly. They also have many other sizes of faces to choose from. There are other clear stamps as well that you might like to purchase. So, don't be 'fuzzy' about it......just go on over and check it out.
Wishing you all a very Happy Easter tomorrow and enjoy the day with your family!!!!! I will!!!!

busy day.....

I haven't gotten down to my studio today until now. I found out that my little brother was in a serious accident at work yesterday. He was making cabinets for the shop when the skill saw kicked back and he cut his leg pretty severely. He won't be working for at least 6 weeks. I made him a get well card and I'm gonna slip a Walmart gift card in there to help out with whatever his family may need.

He's a good 'ol boy and deserves to not have to worry about anything.

Until later, Stampettes......Gotta split.........TFL!!!!
