Yeah- Thursday

yeah, made it to Thursday, it has been one heck of a busy week...and it's still going : )  Mom is visiting tonight & we are off to Shea's for the first show of the season, Billy Elliot.  We unfortunately don't have any time for shopping w/this visit, but not to disappoint, we are meeting up on Saturday to go the annual Apple-umpkin Festival in Wyoming, NY.  It's a fun  little fall/craft festival w/lots of yummies too.  Remember, mom & I always eat well-lol.   Monday starts our vacation- I fell like a kid waiting for Xmas-lol!  I've had very little time for cards this week & when I've had time, I've had very little mojo- I think my brain is already in vacation mode-lol.

Better get to my new card & get to working, trying to get it all in order before tomorrow.

I think I mentioned something in my last post about being stuck on these colors....the plaid pp is from Darcy's Ucuts.  Big polka dot pp is My Mind's Eye.  White polka dot is Recollection.  The chipboard flower is Basic Grey- it's 3 flowers layered together.  Used the Cricut for my mini tag.  Inked everything, added some bling & done.

Have a great day!!  TFL!  Lynn

Hello : )

Wow- didn't realize last Wednesday was the last time I posted....sorry about that, life just seems to get in the way, especially when I'm at work -lol!!  I have everyone had an enjoyable weekend, so glad it's not Monday anymore : )    Just need to get through this week & then vaaaaccccaaattttiiiooonn- oh yeah!!!!   I spent a lot of time last weekend making cards & gift boxes for our upcoming craft show.  Our weather has definitely turned fall-like already, I know it's the end of September so it's to be expected, but I was hoping for a little bit longer hot spell.   I did notice yesterday that our leaves haven't changed much, everything is still green & the trees are full of leaves. Besides knowing winter will follow, I find Fall to be so pretty here in New York State.

Speaking of pretty, my new card....................    I totally had a thing for pinks & peachy this past weekend ( to see more of this color combo, feel free to check out my gallery on

The chipboard presents are Martha Stewart-  I've  said this before, but totally in love w/the whole package of goodies.  I find MS to be a bit expensive, but this package was totally worth it.  The stripe pp is Glitz.  Pink border is Bazzill Basics, used the EK Success for the large scallop border.  I found these awesome rub-on stitching in my stash from K & Company.  Used the cricut for th tag, stamp is MSE.  I inked everything, as usual, added buttons & bling.
Have a great day!!  TFL!!!  Lynn

Why is it only Wednesday- this week is going sooooo slow...    Glad to say my dentist appointment went good yesterday & no need to go back till next month & that's only for my cleaning -yeah!!  Tonight is hair and pedicure-yeah!!   I'm only treating myself to the pedicure because of our upcoming vacation- can't sit around w/the pool w/ugly toes-lol!!   My boss is gone alllll day today- yeah, double yeah!!  I will say it's stressful trying to do a million things at once, but I'll take it for a couple days.  On that note, time to get to my new card.....

I have to admit, making Thanksgiving cards are my least favorite!  Believe it or not, I get a lot of request for them & I sell quite a few at the craft show that mom & I do the first week in November : )  Background pp is My Mind's Eye.  orange pp is Target $ section.  Sticker is Walmart.  Mini alphabets are Cosmo Cricket.  Martha Stewart border punch.  I don't remember the brand on the gold border stickers- but can always look it up, if you need to know : )
Time to tackle my desk- what a mess : )  Have a great day!! TFL  Lynn

Rainy Tuesday

I hate to say this, but this morning seems like fall- it's gray, rainy & chilly...guess I should get used to this : )   My boss is already here this morning...argghhh....but, good news, he's off to Florida today & will be gone until Friday- yeah.... I might actually keep some things done in here the rest of the week.  Now, unfortunately I do have another dentist appointment to look forward to on this lovely rainy day...I hope we can get this finished today, I've been visiting the dentist once a week for the past 3 weeks-yuk!!!    I found some time to make cards this past weekend, good thing, I've got some orders due by next week....did I mention my honey & I are taking a small vacation the beginning of October...Las Vegas, here we come : )   Wish you could see the HUGE smile on my face right now : )

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

I tend to lean towards making baby boy cards, more then girls....don't really  know why, I love to use pink : )   Anyways, glitter plaid pp is My Mind's Eye.  Peachy polka dot pp is from my scrap-a-day calendar.  Chipboard sticker is K & company.  I actually got a my Fiskars decorative scissors for the border, I completely forgot I even have those, pretty sad when I have @10 different ones : )  Used the Cricut for my little tag.  Stamp is Fiskars also.    Have a small tip to share...if you use a lot of K & Company stickers, have you ever noticed their packaging- awesome pattern paper- I always cut the packaging out & stick it w/my pps. 

Well time to get to working.  Have a great day & stay dry!!  TFL  Lynn

Happy Sunny Thursday!!

Just a quick post today w/a card that I hope makes you smile : )

Just about all my supplies on this card are oooold.  The 2 pieces of pp are from the same kit, but have no clue what the brand is, the sheets were just 5x6- great colors though.  The puffy panda is stickos.  Used the cricut for the circles & flowers.  Added some bling & ribbon & done.
Sorry so short today- tooooooo many piles waiting my attention.  Have a great day!! TFL  Lynn

Half way to the weekend : )

Happy Wednesday!!  It is suppose to be a beautiful day here- high in the 80s & sunny- yeah!!  Now I just have to get through this work day, it's already starting off on the wrong foot- seems to be typical for this week- half way to the weekend : )   I have big plans for this weekend- I'm going to get a bunch of cards made & start my Xmas tags- I'll let you know how it goes : ) 

Need to get to my new card & get to working.......................

My brain isn't working yet this morning, haven't had my Dr. Pepper yet.  I can't remember the brands on any of this card : (  This is a special order card, the little girl loves Tinkerbell.
Hope you have a great sunny day!! TFL  Lynn

Oh, Monday- you come way to quickly

Where did the weekend go???  We had a very relaxing weekend- no plans, crappy weather- stayed  home & made cards : )  It was a chilly, gray, rainy Saturday, which in my opinion was perfect for making cards- which is a good thing as I'm behind on my orders & everything else : )   This morning feels like fall- it's 54 degrees out, but it should warm up a little, it's a sunny cloudless morning.  I've got my fingers crossed for a good work week : ) 

Better get to my new card & then get to working................

I'm always in need of masculine cards & need to make them when the mood strikes me : )  Background pp is music sheet pp,  you just can't see it in the pic, it's from Hobby Lobby.  The star & drum image are die cuts from an oooold kit- don't even know the brand.  Stamp is Studio G.  I inked allll the edges, used the Marvy corner round & even used some brads-are you like me, do you have 100's of brads & never use them : )
I hope you have a fantastic week!!  TFL  Lynn

It's Friday-love these short work weeks!!

yeah- Friday!!!  It's sooo nice out this morning- sun is up & not a cloud in the sky-yet, suppose to be in the 80s today- now tomorrow is another story- rainy & chilly- great weekend weather- I'd say good card making weather though.  I need some major card time- I've been so slow at it as of lately.  I think I was just trying to enjoy the end of summer, but now I'm behind w/orders & everything else.  Mom & I are doing a craft show the beginning of November & we have nothing ready for it.  Oh well, we'll have fun preparing : )   My desk looked pretty neat this morning when I came into work, so I'm going to take that as a sign of a good work day, keep your fingers crossed for me- this job turns on a dime : )   

Well onto my new card..........
Needed an anniversary card & I wanted to stay away from black & red for once : )  Blue wood grain pp is My Mind's Eye.  Can't remember the brand on the cool hot pink pp, but if you need to know, leave me a comment & I'll find it for you.  The hearts & tag sticker are Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby).  Used a Fiskars border punch.  My pearls are from Joann's the best $2 I ever spent : )  Stamp is Hero Arts, add some bling & inked all the edges.

Have a great weekend!!  TFL!!  Lynn

Happy Thursday!

Hello people!!  Sorry for the disappearing act- that seems to happen a lot lately-lol!!  Work has been very busy, life has been pretty enjoyable too, just busy enjoying the end of summer.  We had a pretty good Memorial Day weekend, spent some time w/mom- and as usually we stuffed ourselves w/lots of yummy food : )  I actually got a lovely toothache towards the end of the weekend, lovely, huh?  I spent some time at the dentist's on Tuesday- yuk!!!  Hopefully all is on it's way to being fixed!!  I've had a little time for cards, I go through withdraw w/out being able to make some- I hope you know what I mean-lol!!

Was aiming for a uni-sex baby card here- I think I hit it-lol!!  The bottles are pp from Hobby Lobby, just cut a strip out, backed it w/orange paper, used my EK Success punch.  The yellow background paper is Hobby Lobby also.  The stamp is Fiskars & all the buttons came from my stash.  Almost forgot my handy corner round punch from Marvy!

I hope you have a great day- just think tomorrow is already Friday!!  TFL  Lynn
