If Mama's not happy...

Hi everyone, and welcome to another card give away! Before I show you the card that's up for grabs I want to say that NIKI won the last card give away and still hasn't contacted me with her address. Niki, if you will e mail me at usyungs@gmail.com and let me know your address I'll send it on out to you! Also, yesterday Niki left this comment

"What printer do you use for your digital images? I'm thinking of asking for a new printer for my birthday. I have an HP right now, and the ink smears too much for me to color the images with Copics or water based markers."

The printer I currently have is an Epson CX8400, but I sometimes print out images at work on our HP Deskjet 842C. If you are having trouble with the ink smearing try heat setting your image with your heat gun. If your ink still smears you can lightly spray your image with a workable fixative or an aerosol hairspray. If you do that you should be able to color your images with anything you want! The workable fixative I use is from Prisma. Please let me know if this works for you Niki!

Okay, today's card is using the image just released from Squigglefly called The Mrs.


(click to enlarge)

There are several greetings I thought to put on this card; one being the title of my post "If mama's not happy, no one's happy!"
But I thought of saying "You ain't seen mad yet!" (okay, maybe change the word mad to b**ch!) I decided to leave the sentiment up to whomever wins the card, so chime in with your thoughts when you leave a comment!
I colored with copic markers and chalked the background. I think it needs some more embellishing but I can't really think what to add to it right now and even if I could I doubt I could find anything right now with my desk covered up like it is.

The room is almost finished though! As much as I wasn't looking forward to painting and as long as I put it off, I am so glad now that we finally just did it! One wall to go, and it's the wall my computer is on so we're waiting until the weekend to finish it up so I won't be without a computer for long. In the meantime I'm putting the rest of the room back in order and we're painting the trim. Hopefully I'll have my desk back this afternoon and can stamp something for tomorrow! Also, Squigglefly has acquired a new artist and they've released several of her images! Be sure to check them out!
Okay, go leave a comment so you can have a chance at winning this card! Have a great day and thanks for looking!

LOL, when I saw this image I thought. "Oey Vey...it's Noni (my Grandmother)", she was one tough lady and I can just see my Gramps going in the other direction LOL

Thanks for the good start to my day Holly :~)

This reminds me of my grandmother! She was always threatening something! Pure b**ch. But I loved her just the same!

Too funny!

What a fantastic image! I love your Mama ain't happy saying! Another saying could be "You want WHAT?"

Niki said...

Great card, again. Thanks for the printer advice, I'll try it.

I sent you an e-mail last week, really! If you don't get the one I sent today, please let me know at kylesma@att.net. I had a problem with a friend whose e-mail service suddenly decided to block all addresses from att.net. Maybe mine aren't getting thru to you.

Thanks,
Niki

This image is just too cute and oh the different sentiments that can go with this! I love how you colored her and I'd frame this and change the sentiment daily as the day suits the situation! LOL! Hugs, Cami

This is so cute, it kind of reminds me of the old Ma and Pa Kettle show where she was always chasing him around with the rolling pin!

Sharon said...

Such a cute funny image. I am always admiring your creations.

Debby said...

lets get rolling - great card.

Kristine B. said...

LOL...Oh, I've had those days before! LOL. What a funny image. Thanks for posting Nikki's question and answering it, because I have the same problem especially because the only way I color my images is to watercolor them with wc pencils, so it smears with printer ink. THANKS so much for those tips. I'll definately try heat setting or a fixative. :)

Jaspere said...

Wow you can color. I can definitely feel the vibe she's giving.

Maria said...

Hey Holly!! I received your beautiful card! I love it! It's so pretty in person! I think I'm going to give it to my husband when he annoys me! LOL!!!

I posted it on my blog, it looks fantastic!
