About Me

Hi: It's Merniebug here. Well actually it's Melanie but I answer to a variety of sobriquets. My mother had been reading Gone With The Wind at the time of my birth, thus, I was named Melanie. My friends call me Mel, It was my sister who coined the moniker Mernie when she was too young to pronounce Melanie correctly. It was eventually shortened to Mern. And then later when my nephew came along he called me Melwee because he couldn't pronounce Melanie either. Now my husband of thirty-four years is so confused he just calls me whatever comes to mind first. Actually I was Sweetheart until the day he realized the honeymoon was over. It was my cousin who added the bug to Mernie which is who I've always been to him and who I am on Splitcoast Stampers. So now that we've gotten past the odd name business, who else am I? I'm a child of the King, a wife and a mother to one grown son and five tailwaggin' fur babies. I am a retired interior designer, a rubber stamper, and a wanna be author who is just completing a first novel. I got into scrapping and rubber stamping to fill a creative void after retiring--it's less expensive than redecorating the house every year. LOL

They tell me it's coming, that Spring is on its way.  So, welcome March, and a happy Monday to all of you out there.  Well it appears we survived the Olympics and another round of storms.  In honor of Spring, which is supposedly just around the corner (somewhere) I put together a little touch of it right here in cyber space with a couple of bunnies that seem to spell spring but not necessarily Easter. The stamp is by Judith and I’ve named my bunny Barney. 

Both bunnies have been paper pieced and colored with Prisma pencils and baby oil.  I’ve used border punches, spellbinders dies, ribbon and buttons. All the designer paper is from my stash of scraps.  My third bunny is by High Hopes Stamps and he was colored with Prismas and baby oil too.  The picket fench sort of thing behind him is punched with a Martha Stewart punch and then cut apart.  The textured layer had been run through The Cuttlebug in an  embossing Folder.

Now for the goodies.  
I have a FREEBIE link for you today.
Yep that's right.  It's absolutely free--a cool font for scrapping and card making.  Just follow the link below:  
Quote for today:
Well, that's it. Thanks for stopping by, you just made my day.
