Just can't go wa-rong with this color combination!

Blue & Red = great combination!! I don't care how you use it, boy or girl, this way or that - it's gonna work - ya' know!?
And of course - one of my favorite designs! For all those wondering - we did change the font. The font I normally do on this design is so close to my handwriting {that is probably the reason I use it all the time!} But my dear friend who ordered this one for her baby boy {ok, he's not really a "baby" anymore - but when you have only one kid, he is considered a baby for a very long time!} really L-O-V-E-D this font! So, we went with it! {Yes, it is the one I use mostly in my "funny bones" collection.}
Back in the day - you know, when I just started painting - I was using canvases that had the staples showing on the side. Then a great friend of mine, Wendy, suggested that I glue grosgrain ribbon around the edges. And you know, 5/8 inch ribbon fit perfectly!! But then I started running into the problem of not finding the ribbon colors I needed to match - but hey, then I found these mamma-jamma canvases {gallery-style . . . . who knew?} and you could paint on the edges because there were NO staples!

Oh, yeah - I've come a long way! tee hee
