The Wearin' of the Green....



No, I'm not Irish....at least not that I'm aware of but my kids are half Irish so does that count?

I've never been one to celebrate St. Patrick's Day very much since I don't like corned beef and cabbage (I'm a vegetarian) and I don't like beer, green or otherwise, and I also don't like Irish, or any other kind of, whiskey. I can't dance very good so a jig is out of the question, and green really isn't my color! So I guess it's a good thing I'm not Irish!

But I couldn't let the day go by without some kind of acknowledgement so after a long session with Lisa where I learned so many things, I am now able to navigate around my new program and actually do painting with it!! I made something "green" to celebrate.

Here's proof that I can actually use my new toy! I took one of my ladies and put some color on her. Now please remember this is my very first try at this. I chose Lettuce Lady because she looks good in green!

Here she is before....



And here she is after a few minutes with my new toy....



Isn't that cool? Poor HB may not see much of me for a few days! I'll be locked in the office, hogging all the computer time while I paint and play! I did Lettuce Lady in just a few minutes so she isn't perfect but I wanted to let you see what I was able to accomplish after only a short amount of time and some great instructions from Lisa. Thank you, Lisa!!!
