Oh snap! let's take a selfie

     Sorry to have disappeared for a while.  It's been another rough week.  I have a couple of appointments this week and hope to make some progress with them.  Thanks for all the sweet comments that have been left in regards to my health.  Thought and prayers are always welcome and MUCH appreciated.
     As you know I've been doing some more guesting for Art Impression Stamps.  Well this stamp is actually from my stash instead of the new stuff, but I had never inked it up yet so I got it out to play with.  I was so tempted to give it a sentiment of "Let me take a selfie!", but I refrained myself.  LOL  What I did do was use that cute instant camera frame die cut and some Tim Holtz filmstrip.  Guess that stuff is going to become as scarce as hens teeth since everything's digital these days.
     Here are the selfie girls up close and personal.

     Hope all my friends in the paths of these nasty storms are safe and sound.  We didn't get all the really rough stuff like up in Tupelo and next door in the Tuscaloosa/Birmingham area, but the lightening last night was crazy.  It was almost constant making it like a false daylight.  It raining and rumbling now so I'll be keeping an eye on the weather updates.
     Have a happy Tuesday!
