Hi Everyone!

I wanted to share the card I made for my oldest son.  He turned 22 last Sunday, boy the years have just gone by sooo sooo fast....too fast!!!  He's really into music, particularly heavy metal and his all time favorite band is Metallica, so I thought he'd get a kick out this.  It turned out just as I imagined, it's nothing fancy, but I was going for a simple look.  Am happy to say that really loved it!!!  Hope you all like it as well.

Hi Everyone!

I know, I know Christmas is over, but I wasn't able to share this with you before.  This is the card I made for my oldest (21).  He was in Afghanistan (Air Force) during Christmas, so I thought this was a cute idea.  I'm happy to say he just got back in the States now!!!  I'm so thankful that he is safe & sound, just wish he was home with me!!!  Sounds like he may be able to come for a visit in March for my Birthday....soooo excited!!! It will be a year in March since I last saw him. :(

He loves to play the guitar, both acoustic and electric.  Last year when he was in Japan I sent him a card with a snowman playing guitar, so I thought I'd keep the tradition up using a guitar in his card.  It didn't turn out as well as I had wanted, but I'm still very happy with it and he liked it, and  that's all that matters! :)  Would love to hear what you all think!!!

I took scrap paper, sprayed it with water and crumbled it up layering it to look like sand drifts and used MS gold glitter on top. I also used red puff paint for Ruddy's nose.

The Bug Magazine...."Cutie Pie"

Hi Everyone!

The highly anticipated Bug Magazine has finally come out with their first addition and this little "cutie" is on page 22!!! I couldn't believe it when I got the news, I was sooo excited!!!  I've never had any of my projects published before, this might be my claim to fame ...LOL!!!

Have to say, Gilby was NOT with me on this one!  In order for me to get the placement of the heart on the little bottom just right, I needed his help.  Can you believe that little punk (I call him punky) wouldn't try it on for me?!?!!!  I had to get the help of one of my teddy bears (yes, I have several teddy bears)...LOL!!!

Please let me know what you think, I hope you like it as much as I do!!!

LOL!!!

Hi Everyone & Happy New Year!

With the Holidays & family things I've been MIA for a while.  The biggest reason though, is that my laptop crashed for the 2nd time. :(  Needless to say I was not a happy camper!  I didn't realize how hard it would be for me not having it, pretty sad huh? LOL Luckily I was still able to work from home, since my youngest son was home on break and he let me use his. :o)

Well, I'm happy to say that I'm an extremely happy camper now, because my new laptop just arrived on Friday!!!  Yaaaay Hurraaay!!!  Gotta love HSN and their easy pays!!!

So, I'll be able to post now and more importantly I'll be able to go back to my stalking routine. LOL, I dooo so love to peruse all your blogs.  It amazes me how much talent there is among our crafting community!  You all are awesome!!!

This new year I have a few resolutions, one of which is to post more often and enter as many challenges & blog hops that I can, MAYBE even be on a design team!!! :o)  I would love for you all to join me as I pursue my dreams.  I hope to have some changes made to my blog as well.

Gilby and I hope to see more of you throughout the year. :o)

As always,
