Hi, my name is Carmen. Welcome to Beyond The Fringe!

I love sewing, crocheting, paper crafts, drawing, doodling and more. I also like to create digital stamps and sometimes offer vintage graphics, many for free. I am a mom and a grandmother of 8 adorable grandkids whom I love to make things for.

It's How you Play the Hand, Free Digital Stamp

Hello!

I had a bit of a scare yesterday! I went to my blog and got a nasty message about it being a possibly malicious site! 

Say what???

Well, in the end it was nothing. Just google being extra careful, which is a good thing! The problem stemmed with another site that I was following. Once I removed that site, everything was fine again. 

Phew! 

I'm not as computer literate as you might think. If necessary I get support from my techie son, and my computer literate hubby!

Anyhow, hope none of you were scared away! 

So here is a digital I drew up.
Again, more of a mixed media type image.

They just removed the flood warning yesterday, but you wouldn't believe how much the rain is pouring out there. Apparently we're getting a storm, and it's supposed to rain for the next few days. I'm pretty sure our lower areas may get some flooding. 

Whatever happened to our hot Kamloops weather? Not that I'm complaining--

I come with my own weather system these days...and it's usually hot and cold, hot and cold!

Anyway, have fun with this image and remember, it's how you play the hand you're dealt.

On that note, one more thought:

"Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart." Psalm 37:4

Have a good weekend!
Carmen

  2. So glad that your computer scare turned out to be nothing! Love your new images; they are really neat. I like the phrase you used with it; that is so true! I also like the Bible verse you included on your post! Hope you are having a blessed and happy day! :)

  9. Brilliant! Carmen she is amazing! Your style is so awesome--you are varied, but I can still sense you coming through your creations. I can picture some ideas for use in my mind already. However, it is summer and my little cave boys are home. I want to see you create something with her!
    With ya in the personal weather system! Just marvel that God made you uniquely a woman and all the blessing that come with that (that men don't have)!
    Cheers.
