to brighten the day : )

Remember yesterday, i mentioned crazy weather...again, today it's 60 degrees out & very gray...but 60, it felt like a breath of fresh air when I walked outside.  Not a bad way to start the day : )  My honey & worked on the bathroom again last night, we are just about done, now we just need the final touches.  I promise a picture soon, I can't wait to show it off-lol  : )

Hope my card  brightens you day...........................

I made this card this past weekend, have to admit didn't get any cards done last night : (    I also have to admit, I don't remember any of the supplies I used on this card, except my Cuttlebug & embossing folder.  hmmm, time for some Dr. Pepper- I need to wake up : )

Have a great day!! TFL  Lynn

Holy cow, it's chilllly out there today!!!  Remember last week I was talking about the crazy hot weather we were  having in the middle of March, well the normal weather is back, this morning it's 24 degrees out.... & yes, I am complaining-lol!!!  I love warm/hot weather!!!  For those of you that are always cold, you understand, right?!   

I had an order for a bunch of sympathy cards, so I did a couple of those over the weekend.  I dont' tend to use yellow on sympathy cards, but I think this turned out ok, I find the yellow to uplifting : )  My yellow background pp is old, but I believe it's DCWV, their extra big pack.  The turq pp is from My Mind's Eye.  Chipboard sticker is an old Fiskars.  Used the Cuttlebug & a Lifestyle Crafts die.  The stamp is Kaisercraft. Ribbon is American Crafts.  I inked alllll the edges on this card, to lighten up the brightness of the yellow : ) 
Well time to get some work done!!  Have a great day!! TFL  Lynn

Monday- why??

Why do weekends go so fast???  argggghhhhh : )  We had a very productive weekend...worked on our downstairs bathroom.  I'd like to say we are done w/it, but everything takes twice as long as you think it's going to.  The walls are painted, the new floor is in, the toilet is back in & the new vanity & top are installed, but no plumbing yet.  Hopefully during the week, we can wrap it up.  Oh yea, still need a new shower curtain,which is my mission this week : )

What a bright, sunny Monday morning, unfortunately, my boss is already at work- not the way this girl wanted to start her week.  Well better get to my new card, so I can get some more work done..............

My butterfly & flowers are stickers from Hobby Lobby.  The stripe pp is Cosmo Cricket ( i think). Stamp is from Hero Arts.

Well time to get working-yuk!  Have a great day!! TFL  Lynn

A sunny TGIF!!!

Yeah, finally made it to Friday- this has been a looong work  week for me, but at least it's been beautiful weather- high of 80+ & sunny, it was absolutely gorgeous!!  Today is starting out the way to, though high is only 70 today ( only -lol, it's March) & it is suppose to rain most of the weekend : )  Oh well, my honey & I have a bathroom to finish up.  We went & picked out paint the other day, we got a soft light blue-ish aqua....i can't wait to see it on the wall : )  I have to get some cards made this weekend, have some "special orders" due next week : )  I know we will be watching the NCAA basketball too- go Syracuse!!!!!!!!  Last  night's game was a nail bitter, but we won it : )

Well better get on to my new card & get to working : )

Once again used a lot of old paper on this.  My embellies is from Best Creation Inc- I cut it out of the 12x12 paper.  My stamp is Hero Arts.

I have to admit I didn't get much done on my cards last was soo nice out when we got home, that my honey & hung outside for a bit...we've got allllll sorts of trees, bushes & flowers budding already-yeah.  I think my honey may need to mow our lawn soon, if this warm weather keeps up : )

Well better get to my new card & get to working.............

St. Patty's Weekend : )

Boy, do I have the perfect picture to show you..............................

Check out this cute little leprechaun, this is my best friend's little man- Evan!!  OMG, he is just toooooo darn cute, he'll be 2 yrs old in May.  I can't beleive he left the little hat on : )  I would say little Evan is the pot-o-gold at the end of the rainbow : )

I hope everyone had a great St. Patty's Weekend!!  We had absolutely wonderful weather, it got in the 70s both days- just perfect.  We even had the windows open to let in the fresh I think I heard today is the last officially day of winter, Mother Nature must have had other thougts, leave it to the lady-lol!!!!!  We actually started our redo on our downstairs bathroom....we took everything out but the toilet, now need to go buy paint  ( i'm thinking turqoise) & my husband needs to put in the new floor..........our goal is to have this down by end of next weekend, keep your fingers crossed : )

I, of course, found time to make a couple cards this weekend, plus a bunch of tags. 

My blue plaid-ish pp is from Pebbles ( I think).  My little onsie is a Dollar store find.  I use my fav border punch by Fiskars again & used the Cuttlebug & embossing folder.  My stamp is also from Fiskars.

Well time to dig into some work for this girl.  Have a great day- Happy Monday : )  TFL  Lynn

Hello world : )

Another bright sunny morning & warm to boot : )  They are calling for rain later tonight, but still warm -woohoo.  I'm going to have to be getting out my spring/summer clothes if this keeps up : )  They are calling for 70's this weekend & a day near 80 next week- oh, I'm sooooo excited- I love warm/hot weather.  Plus just seeing the sun seems to put everybody in a better mood.  I've got a dentist appointment tonight, so I"m trying not to let that ruin my day-yuk.  I have to admit I'm not a fan of the dentist at all....maybe if I would go like I'm suppose to I wouldn't have half the problems I words of wisdom for the day : )

Gotta get to my new card, so I can get some work done : )   Don't you  just love the felt bunny- he's from my wonderful friend Marcy (she's a big bunny fan).  all the pps is from DCWV.  Used my grass punch by Martha Stewart- I would soooo recommend getting one of these.  I know the MS one is retired, but I believe Fiskars has one now & Recollection (Michaels' brand).   My stamp is a $1 Studio G.

Happy Wednesday : )

Almost half way through the work week, that's gotta be a good thing : )  It's a bright sunny morning & the temp today is suppose to be near 60- love it!!!   Unfortunately when I got to work this morning the boss & another employee were already here-yuk...I look forward to my quiet moments when I get to work...needless to say, that is why I'm running late w/my post today : )

My cute kitty sticker is from We R Memory Keepers, all my paper is ooold.  Used my Cuttlebug & Nesties.

I promise to make you smile : )

It is a gray, foggy morning here, but the temp is already 50 degrees.  It was pouring rain when I got up, but that has stopped, so now it's just gray : )  I'm really really not complaining, as I already mentioned it's 50 degrees here & it's March 13th, holy cow.  They are predicting temps in the 70's by the weekend, our usually high is @40 & that's pushing it.   I've got little flowers already peeking out : )

I promised you a smile this morning & if this doesn't do it, then you should go back to bed-lol.  check out my cute little nephew, Hutton.....doesn't he look like  a little man sitting in his chair all by himself!!!!  Look at the little smirk : )  Easter can't come soon enough...I so miss this little guy!!!!!

Well better get to my new card, so I get to working.

I used a bunch of Girl's Paperie embellies on this card.  My brown background pp is from Echo Park.  All the red pps are from My Mind's Eye.  Used my favorite border punch again & inked all the edges.  The stamp is Hero Arts.

I hope you have a smile on your face now, if you need more smiles for the day, feel free to stop back by my blog : )  Have a great day! TFL  Lynn

yeah, we've made it to Friday!!!!!  This has been a kind of screwy week for honey is working afternoon shifts, so when I get home he's just gotten to work  & when he gets home, I go to bed...I've been staying up late to see him, I think it's caught up w/me this morning : )  Hopefully me Dr. Pepper will do the trick.  We have another relaxing weekend ahead of us....I really  really need to concentrate on cards.  I've been very sloooow on my cards this week...need a boost of mojo : )   I had a friend ask me to make her a bunch of tags, so that will be on list this weekend too : ) 

Well time for a new card....

I need lots of b-day cards for my stash...must admit I'm not a huge fan of this card...where is my mojo?????

Turq polka dot pp is My Mind's Eye.  Sticker is Three Bugs in a Rug.  Used the Cuttlebug, w/a new nestie & my fav Fiskar's punch.

Half way through the work week : )

Happy Wednesday!!!!  It is a bright, beautiful, sunny day here, the temp is 51, holy crap can you believe that?!!  Beginning of March & it feels & looks like spring....I saw a robin this morning in my back yard.   The sunshine in the morning really helps to start the day off right, now lets hope it continues that way : )

This card turned out so much better in my head,but that happens sometimes : )  Stickers are DCWV (I think).  Darker blue pp is from Hobby Lobby.  My lace is vintage, found it at a co-op.  My favorite border punch, Fiskars & of course used the cricut too.

Happy Tuesday, gonna be another green one : )

Sorry I missed posting yesterday...remember I was off work on Friday........well, I paid the price for it yesterday-yuk!!  My desk was stacked w/problems, still is, but at least some of them are gone.  I had a very very enjoyable weekend.  Made a couple cards on Friday & did a bunch of cleaning, heck I even got out my Easter decorations, it is only a month or so away : )    My mom came to visit this weekend also, it was nice to see her & spend sometime together, it seemed like forever since we last hung out : )  Anyways, we went to Les Miserables at our local theater....I have to admit I wasn't overly excited about going, but wow- it was a great show!!!  I would highly recommend it!!!

I think I'm 100% done w/my St. Pat's card.  I love the way this little card turned out...I like the brightness & the orange & green together.   The little leprechaun circle is actually a pin (from Dollar General) & I put it on w/removable "dots" so the recipient of the card can actually wear it : )  The little rectangle above it is a Sticko Irish flag sticker.  The ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.  The bright green pp is an oooold piece of Bo Bunny.  The shamrock pp is from Joann's.  Got out the Cuttlebug, Nesties & Cricut on this one. Border punch is Martha Stewart &  the stamp is a Studio G ( $1 section at Joann's). 

Well time to dig into work, hope it goes smoothly & quickly : )  Have an awesome day!! TFL  Lynn

Happy Thursday

Ever just have one of those weeks, everyday you know you should just stay in bed......that has been my week-absolutely yucky!!!  I came into work this morning & a bomb went off on my desk & I left it 100% clean last night....that irks that heck out of me!!!  After that, I've decided today is my Friday!!!!!!!  Some days you just need a break & tomorrow's going to be it for me : )  Okay, that has considerably helped my mood- now I just have to get my Dr. Pepper & clean up my desk : )

I've got another St. Pat's card for you today....told you I'd  been working on them : )

My brain is sooo not working this morning, I can't remember if my sticker is Jolee's or Stickos  (sorry, if you need to know, leave me a message & I'll look it up when I get home).  The background paper w/the 4 leaf clovers is again from my Scrap-a-day calendar.  The other green pps are from scrap drawer, but I think the gingham is Hobby Lobby.  Stamp is from Studio G & I got out the cuttlebug & nesties too.

Well time for work- have an awesome day & even better weekend.  Hope to see you back here on Monday : )

TFL!  Lynn
