Happy B-day!

Today is my nephew's 18th birthday. Where does the time go? Seems like yesterday he was still in diapers. He's gotten so tall that when I hug him, I see his belly button. (Maybe I'm just shrinking?!?) Anyways, we are so proud of him and want him to know how much we love him. Happy B'Day Corey! May your year be all you're hoping for:)

Happy Dance Day!

Today I felt like doing a little happy dance when I opened up our mailbox! My copy of the Dec/Jan issue of "The Stampers Sampler" arrived and I had six cards published:) Two of the corset templates I submitted didn't make it nor did another card for the bead challenge. One never knows what will be chosen but I'm tickled pink with what was chosen. I'm posting two of my favorites:)

Hope you had a good day and a better tomorrow!

a first for me....

Today my hubby came home with a little treat for me in a small clear bag. We usually don't do much for "sweetest day" but he walked in and said, "try this and happy belated - sweetest day!" The piece he popped in my mouth was a small chocolate covered thing and I thought it was a covered peanut. When I bit down, it was soft and juicy! He announced that it is a chocolate covered red GRAPE! Now that's a FIRST for me! He said they have them at Quality Candy. All I can say is "Bring on the bag!".... lol.

Happy Anniversary!

I know I've been dragging my feet on blogging lately, but have been super busy these days. Helping family members and just living has been getting in the way, so not much time for art:( Anyways, today is a special day for my hubby and me. We celebrate 18 years of marriage, so this one's for you, honey!

If anyone has seen the movie "UP", that is so much like the two of us! I made this cute pin not long ago for him as my sweet hubby's favorite soda as a child was GRAPE. If you saw the movie, you'll understand. My favorite part is where Ellie said, "You don't talk much but I LIKE YOU! (And they show a close up her smiling and her front tooth is missing...) Happy 18th CHUCK - LOVE YOU!!! (Actually my hubby's name is FRED but I tease him and call him CHUCK from time to time now...)

Have a good week everyone:)
BTW....the stamp I used is from Oxford Impressions - "The Bird's Nest" plate. Can you tell I like her stamps?! lol....

A creative moment...

Yesterday I felt creative and came up with a couple of cards for my friend Suzanne over at Oxford Impressions. This piece was made using her "Times Past" plate that she just brought back. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out and hope she is too. Shhhh, don't tell her but "it's in the mail"! Have a great nite everyone and thanks for looking:)

The Beauty of Sunflowers....

My sweet husband brought home a couple of sunflowers for me on Friday nite that he bought at a farmers market. I had to take a picture of them as they were so gorgeous! Thought I'd post one as I don't have the time to show any art right now. Have a good evening!

Hi, my name is Debbie. This is my first attempt at blogging (thanks to my dear friend Patti for her help) ! Please bear with me as I learn the ropes to posting:)
Here are two pieces I submitted to Somerset Studio a while back, that appear in the upcoming Sept/Oct issue. What a GREAT issue. "Bat Boy" was so much fun to create. Both pieces shown were created with digital images and the second piece I used stamps from one of my favorite companies - Oxford Impressions.
