Hey again,

I just noticed that these graphics:

have the wrong url & license as the artist's work is found elsewhere, as soon as you fix it, they'll be approved, sorry it got by me & they weren't caught sooner.

So Beautiful...thanks for thinking of me Shakela, I Love It, but would it be any trouble to switch the month & date around, as he died on August 10th, 2018 & not October 8th, 2018, thanks so much. Sorry to hear you lost your dad too, my heart goes out to you, may the memories you share bring comfort to you & your family.
Thanks also for sharing in our loss & your well wishes..., we are trying to keep strong, but it's not easy, we miss him terribly, but at least he's not suffering anymore & is in a better place, thanks for your thoughts & prayers, they are much appreciated.

Hi, Shakela! Thank you for coming by when you could. I understand about you being busy & having limited time to come on here.
Thank you for your well wish to me & my family. We have had a rough Summer but we are hanging in there. Today is cool at 72 degrees & it is raining. It was in the high 80's the last 3 days or so, so this is a nice cool down for us. I am glad to see you have had occasional rain showers that sort of cools the situation down there. That's good you are looking forward to Autumn when it's cooler. I am only looking forward to Autumn for the beautiful foliage we get. I rather be hot than cold. I know, the time is flying!
Thank you for stopping by to let me know I am not forgotten & that I am still in your thoughts & prayers... as you are also in mine.
Cute Summer page! :)
Thank you, wishing you a wonderful weekend too! Take care & God also bless you!

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
