Hello my Sweet Angel,
Thank you so much for this beautiful tag! I absolutely love it and love you much more.
Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers for my mom. It's going to be a long road for my mom, the ICU doctor is hopeful and that's what we're all holding on to.
My mom has made a little improvement today...praying that mom will continue.
From my heart to yours,
Hello sweetheart, thank you for calling by and for your lovely comments, I really appreciate you coming by and also for voting on my graphics too ... How are you beautiful? I do hope all's good with you, I've not been actively commenting on GG much, I've been busy packing stuff up and trying to sell the house, run a website and have been zoning out painting in my spare time, I love painting, it's kind of taken over my spare time these days, it's very relaxing and gives me moments of pure joy and sometimes great laughs when they go all wonky and wrong :)
Sending you lots of love and massive hugs sweetheart, thank you for being you xoxoxoxoxo
Hi Shakela, I wanted to come by before I forget and thank you for making me the lovely present for our Anniversary. It is so petty and so thoughtful of you, I love it and it's on my page. Thanks again, Hugs, Jane
That's okay, appreciate you stopping by, no apology needed, I know we all lead busy lives. Yea, even though it's been over a month now since my dad passed, I still have my good & bad days, but trying to remember the good times & be happy as I know my dad would want. Your welcome for making you a tag after you made us a anniversary tag, thanks for your thoughtfulness. Glad you love your tag too. Your welcome for letting you know on tags that don't meet requirements, appreciate you fixing them, just trying to keep everyone safe :) I hear ya on being forgetful sometimes, I think we all go through that from time to time. Been there, done that too with other things, I get side tracked every now & again, but I try to re-check to make sure & even then, mistakes happen, we all make them, so no worries :) Sorry when things aren't caught sooner, as things do get by us sometimes for various reasons,but do try to get to you & everyone else, as soon as I know or find out. I hear ya on wondering if spending too much time at the pc can do this to a person, but I've believe the same way on being creative & it boosting the brain power & helping with thinking skills. No need to apologize on rambling, I'm glad you explained how it is for you at times. Thanks for your week well wishes, having a pretty good one so far, hope you & your family are too. Thanks again for stopping by & keeping in touch, leaving some love back on your page too.
& weekend :)
Take care & God bless you also,
P.S. Just noticed the tag you signed with has the artist's first name ending with "y", & it's suppose to be an "i", just an observation, it's Too Cute :)
Good afternoon, Shakela! I am glad to see you are doing great! Thanks for your well wish but I am dealing with a lot of serious stuff now & am really stressed out at the moment.
I am glad to see you love my page too! Thank you for the compliment on my page. :) You are welcome again for the request.
Thank you so much for your prayer for me. I could use more prayers! Thanks also for leaving love on my page & keeping in touch when you can. I really appreciate it!
Wishing you a beautiful Thursday as well. Take care & God bless you too!
Thanks for stopping by my page! I am ready for Autumn! I have been feeling somewhat blah..but hopfully I will be back on the mend before long! I hope you are doing okay..and that God is blessing you and your family! Take care sweetie..love ya!
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.
