My sweet Dahlia

This picture was from a few weeks ago. She loves to rough-house around. My son Steven does that with her a lot I think! Here's she's trying to get my toes!

Sweet Dahlia Anne, she's getting so big. She's just 14 months old last week.

Hubby and I are surely enjoying all our visits with her. I've been taking a few videos, so that's one reason there haven't been many pictures of her recently.

Bursting with Buttons

Today's challenge card is using a Digi Darla's image that is so cute! And I hope a clever idea using buttons!
The image is called Dress Shop.

The challenge runs through April 7th so there is plenty of time to join in. Just remember to use a Digi Darla image and buttons!

Artist point of view of "using" their art

Please click the title above and go read this!!
It's the best explanation of how to use images properly and the reasons why! No rant, just clearly written how things work.
Now for my 2 Cents Worth: She explains this so well, I hope more people understand this now. Some artists get rather testy and nasty about it (even if it's for a good reason - no one pays attention then). Then one just remembers the "rants" I think and not the point. This is the best description I've ever read that explains the artist point of view!

Cupcake card

Here's a card I made with the new cupcake image from Birdie Brown. This was on sale, and I just had to get it!!

I love cupcakes, and they are so cute to use for anyone's birthday card. Who doesn't love 'em?!


I only have a few votes, please go vote for me now!

I entered into this contest months ago, and they've just now advised me that I'm one of the finalists, so please read the note below and go there and vote for me to win some storage things for my crafting space!
When you put this into your address bar and hit enter, then on the left column, click on: Worst Workspace Contest, and then -- at least on my screen -- the voting tab is way, way down and doesn't even show up on the initial screen - so just scroll down and then click vote. Another screen will come up and My entry is also way down at the bottom, (says Terri from Indiana) and you need to click on VOTE and then it will ask for your email address for verification (it stops people voting for themselves a lot!)
This ends March 16, so please go vote soon!! Thanks so much.
I could certainly use the prize!

Here's what they wrote:
Dear Worst Workspace Finalist,
Get excited! The voting part of the contest had started on our Facebook page.
In order to vote you must click on the Worst Workspace Contest tab and like us. Then you will have to enter an email address to vote, and you will be sent an email to verify that address and then you will be allowed to vote once with that email address.
We’ll be running the voting until Friday March 16, 2012, and the person with the most votes at the end of the voting period is guaranteed a spot in the top 5.
Please share this with your friends and family and have fun.
