No More Teasing

I promised I'd show you the painting after it was gifted, so here it is. ;) This was for my Dad's big birthday. He'd teased me about giving everyone else a painting but him. I didn't think he'd really like one of my girl paintings so I decided to paint with words. This was so much fun, especially since it was a labor of love.

And not to leave Mom out, I gave her this for Mother's day...
A shrinky-dink pendant of her grandkids. She was very grateful and didn't find it cheesy . :D

    1. Would you believe the "manicure" is press-on nails from Dollar General attached with nail glue? Haha.
