I am fascinated by HTML…….weird, I know!

I don’t like to have my picture taken.

I have an Associate’s Degree in Biblical Studies/Ministry

I make REALLY good Chicken and Dumplings! Want some?

Sometimes I just can’t see outside the box….

I can play the piano, just not well…….

Dustin Pike Elephant Valentine

Happy day to everyone! I hope you are looking forward to a great weekend! I know I am, I will be spending some stamping time with my sister, Terri on Sunday-can't wait. We have such a fun time together! I am working on Valentine's Day cards for my grandkids + one, so you will be seeing alot of kiddie type cuties in the next several days! Today my card has a digi from Dustin Pike. If you are not familiar with his work, you need to take the time to check him out. He does outrageously funny cartoon like images. A visit to his blog will just make you smile, the above link is for his store, you can get to his blog from there.

Isn't this elephant a cutie? I colored him with my Koh-i-nor pencils and blended with OMS. Card stock is from Stampin'Up, DP from DCWV and ribbon is Offray. The side panel was run thru my Cuttlebug, using the Divine Swirls Embossing Folder. I can't decide if I should send this card to Alyah in England or my + one, Madison in Alabama....what do you think?
Thanks so much for looking in today! Blessings!

Sad and Sweet, C4C19 Challenge

It was a tough day here yesterday, (in the morning, anyway) We said goodbye to our youngest son and family. Jim is in the Air Force and they will be stationed in England for at least the next four years. I'm probably in big trouble from my daughter-in-law for posting this picture. They hadn't been getting much sleep and there were alot of tears, so this isn't the best picture I have of her. She is a beautiful girl, and what a handsome man that son of mine is, don't you think? Of course, those grandkids aren't lacking in the cute department either. I'm sure going to miss them all. Hoping to save for a trip over there!

Okay-on to the sweet.......I had made and posted a card for another granddaughters birthday a few weeks ago, but then I came across this dig stamp from Janie at GTC's Crafty Corner. Check out her blog, she has many digi stamps that she generously gives. They are of the cute and cuddly variety, I just love them!
Joelle just LOVES ponies and purple, and bling, so this card just has her name written all over it. I will be entering it in the Birthday Challenge over at the Crazy 4 Challenge blog.

Recipe: Cardstock-DCWV, Stampin' Up! Pattern Paper-DCWV, Image-GTC Crafty Corner, Koh-i-nor Pencils, OMS, Flower Punch-SU, Marvy, Glitter Paper-American Crafts,Rhinestone-Joann's, Glitter pen- (there is a bit of glitter on the tail and mane, don't know if you can see it in the pic)
I hope you enjoy this card, I sure had fun making it for Joelle. She will be 7 on Thursday.
Thanks for stopping in today! God Bless!

Happy 2010

Can you believe it? 2010. Wow! Time does go by. Hoping your new year will be all that you hope it to be!! My card today has another of digi image. This one is from the Doodle Palace It is just too cute! The "Snail Mail" image really portrays the mail service this time of year. Hopefully, they will be able to catch up soon. :0)

This was a fun card to make-simple-just like I like it. Card stock is from Stampin' Up!, as is the ribbon. Marvy corner punch. The DP is a piece I brought home from my sister's house, so I'm not sure where it is from........
Have a happy and safe day!! Blessings!
