Just an exercise in playing around with what I already had.

It's called Photo Explosion SE and I've had it for at least 3 years and it is limited to what you can do with it, but I've grown so discouraged in the Photoshop experience, that I decided to just have fun with what I have.

Afterall I am RETIRED for goodness sake which translates to not bringing home "bacon" and my sweet Punkin Darlin works so very hard each day to allow me to stay home and play that I've truly decided to listen to my conscience. You know that tiny voice inside our heads and hearts that is ALWAYS right and usually goes completely against what we want to do. Yep that's the one.

Soooooooooooooooooooo, he comes in each day so sore, aching, tired and never never once complains but he will soon be 56 years old ( I know you don't have to say it, Yes maybe I DID rob the cradle a little) and he says things like "I'll never be able to retire", and I feel oh so bad. So why am I telling you all this because............ if I begin to watch our pennies and stop spending his hard earned money on every darn thing I think I HAVE to have, he may be able to retire some day.

And this though a small part is a way I can help HIM.

So this is my first attempt feeble of sharing with you my very inexperienced and simple digi art card.

I'll keep on keeping on and some day I may just have what it takes to do this!


  1. I do some of my art but DD is a web designer & she can achieve what I want while I am thinking about it......So-o-o-o when it comes to my blog...My wish is her comand!!
    p.s. I really like the image you created!

  2. Good Morning Sweet Mollye...
    I adore this pic. Truly beautiful. You can do anything you set your mind to. Truly you can. Look how beautiful. The colors are so luscious and ofcourse I have always loved that old look with the dark make-up and all. Their eyes are so beautiful and intriquing aren't they?

    Thank you for sharing. I am so thrilled that you have time to play with this program and develop such beauty to share with us. Thank you my sweet friend. I have enjoyed my visit here today.

    Have a beautiful Thursday. Please know that you are so loved. Country hugs and much love, Sherry

  4. You are right, Photoshop is so difficult to use!! I am always very frustrated with it myself as I can't get it to do half of what I know it can. Miz m, it's not only your sweet hubby who is saing that. A lot of people know that is an impossibility these days. We are slaves to the system of debt and consumption. I emailed you a while ago after finding your note to me in my junk mail. I hope you got it??


Thanks for taking your valuable time to tell me what you are thinking about!
