Family Photos

Fetch a Sketch is having a brand new sketch challenge today and Dude Time Doodles is the wonderful sponsor.   Be sure and head over to Fetch a Sketch and enter for your chance to win a fabulous prize.

The image (that you can find at the Dude Time Doodles store)  is named Fanny Fart, but, to me, it's just Joy Beth!  A little story here........Six years ago - right after my husband and I had gotten married - I finally met his sister, Joy Beth, and her husband.  I was very nervous about meeting her - not knowing if she would like me, if I'd fit into the family, etc...Anyway, after we'd finished eating dinner I was helping her clean up and as she walked through the kitchen, she "cut a little windy"!!!  As soon as she did, she turned to me and rather sheepishly said...."It runs in the family"!!!  LOL!  I didn't know whether to laugh or what!  But inside, I thought I'd die I was laughing SO hard.    Joy Beth and I have gotten to be very good friends now and we always laugh about this.  The image looks so much like her it's not even funny!  She dresses to match - all the way down the the shoes, purse, rings, and even her watch band!   This card will be sent to her TODAY. ( A little PS here - the I used the bubble embossing folder on the red background - what more can I say (LOL)!

Thanks for stopping by.........and have a great week.
