Hello and yes it is me, visiting once again while I have some time. Missing all of you while I am so onto my job at school at times I feel so overwhelmed by all of the tasks I have on a daily basis, but I love it just the same. I do really miss being here making graphics, just re did my page for the winter and am happy with it and had a blast doing it, felt good to be here again. I am back to school tomorrow after having a week off, but was running here and there doing the holiday cooking and shopping!! Got all except 2 gifts bought..I am here to say I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and wish you a wonderful new week ahead.. Keep on glittering and know I will always be here, I will never leave!!! Many hugs !!!! Linda

Hello my Sweet Angel,
I hope you're doing well and enjoying your weekend.
Mom is back in ICU...called 911 on Wednesday because mom couldn't breathe and was having chest pains again!
It turns out that mom has chronic Afib and fluid in the lungs.
However, by the Grace of is doing so much better now! Soon mom, will be transferred to another room, just waiting for a private room and bed.
Oh Sweetie...I'm so tired but the good thing is mom is doing much better.
I sent you an email to let you know. I wish you were here...I could use a big hug!!
Love you Angel,

Hi Shakela,

Your welcome for my requests & thanksgiving wishes & thanks for yours too. I thought you didn't celebrate it, but wasn't sure, it must be cuz I see that you make tags & also decorate your page for that holiday, sorry about that. Your also welcome for the Thanksgiving pilgrim tag too, so glad you love it, thanks again for your request & displaying it on your page, & for also making me one of your harvest of blessings tags, as I've been enjoying sending it out in my comments today :)
May you all be blessed in abundance each & every day of your lives too, thanks.
Hope you enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend, Happy Friday :)
Take care & God bless,

Hi Shakela,

Melanie asked me the same question just the other day LOL

Here was my reply to her:
(Hope it helps you too)

You asked about how I do some of my lettering.
Most of the time, unless I am using a pre-made alphabet; I use a program called Print Master Platinum 2011.

I think I got it at either Target or Walmart for about $40.
I really like it because not only does it have lots of clip art, the program allows you to import your own graphics also.

But the best thing is the lettering. The program allows you to put "fills" inside the font that you are using. You just upload a texture, background or any kind of graphic and the program places the picture inside the text. From there you can enlarge, shrink or position the fill any way you like.
You can also bevel the text which makes it look raised.
(That's how I do the lettering on my fruit tags).
You can also add drop shadows or different types of outlines to the text.

I didn't know that the program had all the lettering options when I bought the program, so it was a nice surprise :) I had fun playing with it and learning the various options. It also helped that it is fairly user friendly.

Hope you are having a great day/night
