Granny Panties

I'm just a little past the age of wearing bikini undies I suppose.  Only a little bit though.  Thongs?.....PLEASE, we won't even go in that direction.  That just makes my head hurt - and other parts of my body as well!!!

The problem came about the other day when Jim caught me in my granny panties and said I really needed to maybe be a little more stylish. I decided to add a little style and flair with some polka dotted ones!  Yea!!!  Pretty snazzy looking if you ask me!  I thought maybe you'd want to take a peek too.

Oh, and just so you won't think I've lost my ever-loving mind, I'll show you the inside of the card too since it's going to be a birthday card for a friend.

Maybe my next pair of granny panties will have some lace on them!  That's stylish I'm sure.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by.........

A Pig with a Rash

Rash???  Measles???   Maybe he's just super duper embarrassed!  No matter since I think he's going to put a smile on someone's face.  The image is for a progressive challenge over at From the Heart Stamps.  Cute images there and if you play along each month you get the next image free.

I colored him with Copics and then gave him his "rash" with Copic solution.  The Polaroid was popped up on dimensionals and then he was placed behind it.  I used a MFT die for the sentiment that was shimmered up with a Wink of Stella pen and and a Darice embossing folder.

Ok, are you smiling yet??

Thanks for stopping by..........

A Beautiful Day

Things are finally looking up around here so yes, it's a beautiful day!  This is actually a birthday card for one of the older granddaughters.  I used Spring Blocks from Deedee's Digis - (Pre-colored version).  There's five different images and a slew of sentiments in this set - and they come in pre-colored or line.    Be sure and check it out!  I went over the blue background with a little darker blue Copic and then added the Wink of Stella to the flower petals and wings of the bee.  A few sequins were added along with some sheer ribbon. 

I know it's Friday and I don't have a Fun Friday for everyone......but I will have one next week for sure!  (Or at least try to have one - for sure!)

Thanks for stopping by and be sure and go over to Deedee's and see all the wonderful images.  There's also a progressive challenge going on there each month!

Oh Sheep!

First of all, I'd like to thank everyone for all the well wishes for Jim!  He's doing so much better (and hope we can keep it that way now).  We still have a long road to go but things are looking up a little.  Thank you so much for all your thoughts and prayers for us.

I've had a little time the last couple of days (when he's sleeping or parked in front of the TV) to do some crafting.   YEA!  One of the first cards I just had to make was using Farmyard Friends from Newton's Nook.  Cute, cute set of stamps!  I watercolored the "grass" and "sky" and then placed the blue check patterned paper behind it.  I remembered I had some paper that looked like hay and added a strip of it on the side.  The sheep were lightly colored with Copics and then Liquid Applique added.  A couple of sequins, the sun, sentiment, and the card was complete.

I'd like to enter this in the Inky Paws Challenge at Newton's Nook (watercolor) and Pixie's Crafty Workshop (snippets).

Thanks so much for stopping by.............

Happy Easter

Just a really quick card for Easter using From the Heart image for their progressive challenge. 

I'm here, but not really - if that makes any sense.   Thanks to all for the well wishes for Jim recently.  I'm still very hit and miss around here but will try to post a card ever so often anyway.  He was released from the hospital and then ended up having to go back in for several more days.  He's back home once again but things are just crazy busy taking care of him (and myself) and trying to get everything moving forward once again.  There's just no way to get by everyone's blog every day right now but will be by when I can.  Have patience with me for now.

Thanks for stopping by........and thanks so much for your treasured friendship!

No card today but just wanted to pop in here and give everyone an update on what's been going on in my life and let you know why you haven't seen my smiling face lately!  Too long to really go into details but my husband was just released from the hospital yesterday after having some serious medical issues.  The last two weeks haven't been a fun time around here at all.  I'm extremely tired but hope we both bounce back soon.
I'll try to get something posted soon and be by to visit everyone again.  Don't give up on my just yet anyway.

Thanks so much!

Happy Easter

 I've scheduled this post (and hope it goes as planned).  I'm so sorry I haven't been around lately.  The entire year hasn't been good and it just got worse last week.  Life really threw us a curve ball this time.  I'll be back to visit when I can.  It's just pretty crazy right now.
