Little Hutton- cutie-pa-tootie

Happy Thursday- yeah, almost tooooo Friday!!  My honey & I have been watching the Hatfield & McCoy series on the History channel all week & it's on till 11pm, so needless to say, we've had some late nights : )   I'm so wired after it's over it takes me awhile to fall asleep.  It was a really good series & though 6hours long, I would recommend it.   I have managed to get a couple more cards done this week- yeah!!   I had finished my 60 wedding tags, so I thought....customer contacted me yesterday & asked for a couple more : ) 

I promised a  new pic of my handsome little's Hutton & Aunt Lynn-lol!!   Look at his big eyes.  He is just toooo darn sweet!!!  He's a little over 7 months old now, already has 6 teeth, can crawl & is pulling himself up to the standing position.  He keeps his daddy & mommy on their feet-lol!!

Though I did say I got some cards done last night,  I haven't had time to photograph them yet.  I made this card a couple weeks ago : )  I thought it perfect to go w/the pic of my little man.   I believe the red polka dot pp is from Glitz.  The stripe pp is Hobby Lobby (need to get another sheet of that-love it). Used the Cricut.  Stamp is Hero Arts, the sticker is Hobby Lobby too.

Have a great Thursday!! TFL  Lynn

One for Dad

I'm a baaaaad blogger lately : )  Sorry friends, life just got busy busy & I didn't even have much time for card making : (    We had a wonderful, hot family Memorial Day weekend!!!  My mom, brother, SIL & little nephew came to visit.  You should see little Hutton, he is soooooo darn cute & he smiles all the time..maybe it's because he loves his Aunt Lynn-lol.  I promise pictures later this week, I'm lucky I have a pic of my new card :)

My motorcycle is some new stuff for me anyways, it's actually semi-old Crate Paper. I found it on clearance at our local scrap booking store- gotta love a good deal!!  The corrugated cardboard is Jillibean.  The stripe pp is BasicGrey.  The stamp is hero arts & I used the Tim Holtz distresser again.

I hope everyone had a great day, just think we are already to Wednesday!!  TFL  Lynn

Graduation time!

I'm sooo love'n this weather!!!  We had an absolutely beautiful, HOT weekend!!!  I loved it!!!  Mom & I had a blast at the CK scrapping convention- our wallets got a work out, but I did get some super fun stuff that I had been dying to get my hands on : )   Plus, one of the booths was trying to get rid of there stock, so allllll their papers were .25$- holy cow, I know .25$.....I bought just about one of every sheet she had, Graphics 45,  Glitz, Echo Park- I was in heaven- I got like 40+ sheets for @$10- Christmas came early : )   

I have to admit, I've been slow on the cards the last couple weeks- i think it's spring/summer fever!!!  Plus I'm still working on the wedding tags, that are due next week...I'm half way done : ) 

Totally need grad cards, this is my first this year.  The plaid pp is Basic Grey, as is the middle strip.  The diploma image is from my scrap-a-day calendar.  Stamp is Studio G.  Used my fav, Fiskars punch, inked all the edges  & added some bling.
Well, I need to dig into work...I came in yesterday & we had no power for over half the day.  The transformer blew...typical Monday morning, it's always something.  Well have a great Tuesday...just think....loooong holiday weekend coming soon!!!  TFL  Lynn

another beautiful day & I'm at work : (

It is 65 & sunny out right now, felt beautiful walking into work- made me think about turning around & going home-lol.   My report was due yesterday & it is done & off my plate for another 2+ months.   Now, unfortunately I have to catch up on some stuff that got neglected the last couple days.

Better get to my new card.................

This was a special of my very good customer's daughter was graduating from Brockport College in New York State.  I had mom help me w/this card, she found the college crest & printed it out for me- yeah, mom!!  I honestly don't know the brands of anything I used- bad me : )   If there's something you really need to know, email me or leave me a comment & I'll go digging to find out for you : )

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

Happy Monday!!!!  Sorry about the little "missing in action" last week.  Life just got a little too busy & there just wasn't enough time in my day to make cards, take pictures, post my blog, & just life in general.  Can't forget about alllll the time I spend at work too- yuk!!   We had a great weekend, busy, but still great!!  We actually spent Friday night on our boat & all day Saturday, it was a beautiful sunny day- I even got a little sunburn : )   Yesterday we spent w/both of our moms- it was such a nice day!!  We went to brunch & then spent the day relaxing at mom's ....well, not all of us were relaxing, my honey did my mom's "to do list"- he really is a great guy!!!!  I really didn't have any time to make cards- that is sooo hard to believe, I usually always fit a couple in- I did get a couple "wedding tags" done though-only 50 more to go-lol.

Unfortunately I don't have a new card for you today- but didn't want you to think I was forgetting my blog : )   I say unfortunately about the card, but I've got a better picture for you.......................

How can this little cutie not make you smile?!!  I chuckle every time I look at it!!!! 

Have a great day & even better week!!! TFL  Lynn

Better get to my new card-  The flower sticker is from Studio G ( Walmart).  Fiskars stamp.  The gingham pp is DCWV. The ribbon is American Crafts.  I inked all the edges, as usual & added some bling.

Well time to get some work done.  Have a great day!! TFL  Lynn
