Thank you so much for this lovely graphic.
It is lovely and I love it. Thank you for
the choice of words on it too. You have
a way to put the right words on it too.
Appreciate your thoughtfulness. Any
inconvenience is much regretted.

The operation on the toe went well. Now the
right foot is bandaged and have to go for
dressings tomorrow. Hope it heals quickly.
This new year is not starting well for me
but I have to accept things as they are.

Hello Sweetie,
I hope you and your family are doing well. I've missed you very much and pray that your New Year started off on a very happy note.
Congratulations on your new home...many happy blessings to you and your family.
I'm so sorry that I didn't make you a birthday tag. I haven't been well for quite some time and will be having surgery soon. If I can get over this cold that I just caught. I didn't have my surgery in December because I had gotten sick right after Thanksgiving.'s good to hear from you! I saw the most adorable tag you made for those that made you a birthday tag. I have to say that it the most adorable tag ever!
Sending you Belated Happy Birthday wishes and many God bless you with many more!
I love you Angel with all my heart!

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
