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!!!"

EMO kitty

I have been wanting to do this card ALL week.  The hubs has been home and he has kept me outside working in the yard.... hopefully we are done for now, well at least I'm done for now.  I told him if I get dirty or break a sweat today someone is getting hurt!!!!! Bwahahahahahahahahaha.

So, I snuck down to my studio and finally got some ME time!!! 

Haunted Design House has a challenge this week to make something using the acronym E-M-O.

My "E" is of course, emo.
"M" is for made my me....LOL
"O" is for one of a kind...... (read below and you will see what I mean)

I took a lot of liberties with this challenge, but it works for me.  You see the digi above??? My 12 yrs. old daughter drew this little cutie (hence, the one of a kind).  She was sketching a few days ago and when I saw this one I thought it was perfect for this challenge.  I asked her if I could scan it and create a digi and she said "sure".
I scanned it and used Inkscape program to clean up the edges and now its a digi I can use over and over again.

Heck, I think I'll make it a freebie, why not; she would love to see what everyone decides to do with it.


If you decide to grab it and create something with it, please let me know (with a link...if possible) and I'll make sure she sees all the great creations.

I used crystal effects to make the balloon shiny; after I layered it.

Glittered the bow and added a glittered brad to make the knot.

Hope you enter the challenge.  But you better hurry times running out.

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

Love the digi! I know several teenage girls that would love to receive this on a card. I don't know why men think we want to participate in the hard work. I just want to wake up and see that it is done! Congrats on getting away!
