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!!!"

Love to create.....

Hey, that's my line!!!!

Yep, I really do love to create.

New challenge blog has a grand opening today 
and I wanted to enter this card.
There is a sketch and color theme challenge to guide you through.

This one has a little of everything going on.
Here are the deets:
The gazebo was cut using the Cricut and Freshly picked cartridge.
The 2 seater was stamped from a SU! stamp set.
The heart was punched from an EK Success punch.
The foliage was punched from a MS punch.
I distressed the edges using a paper edger tool 
from Creative Memories.
 (check my sidebar and you can order yourself one Item #646974)
Buttons from my stash.
Lots of dimensionals as you can see from the photo below.

I love love love this chair image.  I would love to be sitting here with my beau.

Don't just sit there.....yeah you, get a move on and 'create' something to enter.

Until later, seat warmers......Gotta split......TFL!!!!!!
