Gregrry (another monster by Nolan-Tracey's son)

Well, I finally found time to take another break to play with Gregrrry (another monster created by Nolan, son of Tracey from Fred She Said) I really like the way he turned out. The backing paper is made in Photoshop using the tile I used for the flower, which was made by Scrapgirl from Circle of Crafters. I printed the tile on the back of a fairly lightweight scrapbook paper to get the pink with dots for the back of the tile.
This card will be going out to one of our Circle of Crafter members who is going through some real health challenges right now. Hope it brings a smile to her day.

Gloopy from Nolan (Tracey's son)

Well, I had to play with Gloopy! He is just so adorable! I played with him in Adobe Photoshop Elements 5.0 and made him look very 3-D. All of the printed elements of this card come from Tracey (Fred, She Said) (Thank you so much Tracey for letting me have fun with this!) Nolan recieves $.20 for every card made and posted of his monsters. I can tell you that I will be playing with Gloopy again. I have yet to play with his other one.

Blogging Friends 4 3v3r --- Award

Well, you could have blown me over with a feather when I got an email from my friend Mada! I am sooo new to Blogging, I'm still not really sure of what I am doing here, but here goes. ;-)

Mada Nominated me for the Blogging Friends Forever Award!
Now the way I understand it, the rules are as follows:

The rules of this award are............
1. Only 5 people allowed. (to be nominated)
2. 4 have to be dedicated followers of your blog
3. One (1) has to be someone new or recently new to your blog and live in another part of the world.
4. You must link back to whoever gave you the award.

Well, like Mada, I am so new I don't know that I have dedicated followers (who are fellow Bloggers), so I will have to pick Friends and Favorite Places

So now, my picks would be:

1. Jen (one of the first Blogs I ever visited)
2. Penny Wessenaeur (without whom Tea Bag Folding would be no fun!)
