Happy Halloween- a day early

hello all- I hope everyone is dry & safe!!  Sandy didn't do much to use, but a lot of rain- so thankful!!!   I swear, the sun is peeking out right now, yet it was down pouring 15 minutes ago...typical weather for Buffalo, blink & the weather changes : )  I feel sooo bad for all those affected by Sandy- water like that scares the hell out of me, I'll take our snow storms any day!!!    

Ok on to better topics--- yeah, Tuesday- not Monday : )  I've spent every free minute I have making cards, xmas tags, gift bags, etc.  I wasn't sure what tomorrow morning will  bring, so thought I would do my Halloween post a day early : )   I'm sad to be officially done w/Halloween cards, they are my FAVORITE cards to make- love playing w/the funky color combos & I have drawers full of fun Halloween embellies : )

The purple polka dot pp & the stripe pp are from Target's $ section.  The spiderweb pp is Hobby Lobby.   Journal/matting & ticket are from Echo Park.  Ribbon is American Crafts & the super cute bat is a Doodlebug rub on.
Have a great day!!  TFL!!  Lynn

Monday- what happend to the weekend : )

Happy Monday!! Wow, did this weekend go fast!!!  I was ensconced in paper : )  I must admit that is one of my favorite places to be-lol.   It was a chilly, wet gray weekend, perfect for making cards : )  My honey went away Friday night, so I was able to make a mess....I had paper from one end of the house to the other, literally-lol.  I did a little shopping this weekend too.  Mom was at Joann's last weekend & found out they will take ALL of the competitors coupons at one time...I went in there loaded up w/Hobby Lobby, Michael's & AC Moore coupons &  yup, they took them all at once-yeah!!!  Our Joann's is right next to AC Moore, so I stopped in there also- I must admit I controlled myself....they don't have much I don't already own-lol.

I've got a new card to show you, but I actually made it a month or so ago.  This card was a special order.....recipient "male comedian" ...had no clue where to go w/that......mom & I found this stamp at the Stamp show we went to a couple months ago- sorry don't know the brand.  The awesome vintage image is Graphics 45.  The black polka dot pp is My Mind's Eye, not sure of anything else.  My customer seemed to love it, hope her nephew did too : )

Have a great week!!  Thanks for checking in.  For those of you in Sandy's way- be safe!!  All we've heard about all weekend is Sandy- they say we will get lots of rain & wind, but would rather be here then on the East Coast- again, stay safe!!

Another gray morning...

It was gray & rainy allll day yesterday & so far it's continuing today, at least it's fairly warm out & believe it or not, tomorrow's high is 70+- yeah!!!    There have been many Octobers where we've had a layer of snow already : )   I did get a couple cards done last night- now my problem is getting pictures of my new cards : )  I find natural light works the best & now by the time I get home, it's already dusk.     I'm sure I'll figure it out : )

 I made this card a week or so ago.  My brain is not working today, so feel free to email me or leave a comment if you'd like to know any of the brands- sorry, need my  Dr. Pepper : )

Well, unfortunately it's time to work.  We got new fax/scan machines at work & everything i sent out yesterday didn't got through legible, so everything has to be redone today, now that the machines are supposedly fixed- I hate change!!  

Have a great day!!  TFL  Lynn

Happy Tuesday!!  I hope you aren't having the same weather we are- it is a very very gray morning & wet to go along w/it, but at least it's fairly warm for this time of year, so it's not snowing : )    We had a great weekend in Pittsburgh w/family...for Hutton's first birthday!!

Check out the cute little B-day boy!!  Really his birthday was October 16th, but, who cares : )  Look at that big smile!!  Typical to allllll kids, he has all sorts of toys, but would much rather play w/remotes, laptops & the kitchen cupboard : )  He was such a joy to be w/this weekend...he's just growing so fast- I can't wait for Thanksgiving!!
Needless to say, had zero time for cards this weekend, which means I'll be busting my butt for the next couple weeks getting ready for the craft show that mom & I do.  I do have a new card to show you that I made last week though.......
This is the card  I made for my brother & SIL, they bought their first house recently, so this was our firs time there!!  It's a beautiful big old home-- 6 bedrooms....oh, would I could do w/6 bedrooms-lol!!      Plaid pp is My Mind's Eye.  all other pp is scrap- I'm just about out of that awesome yellow polka dot : (    House sticker is Doodlebug.  Sun & puffy flowers are K & Company Life's Little Occasions.  Can't remember the brand of mini alpha, but if you need to know, let me know : )  I used my favorite Martha Stewart grass punch & the Marvy corner round- I've been on a kick w/that punch lately : )   
Have a great day!!  TFL!!  Lynn

Happy Thursday : )

One more day till the weekend- woohoo!!  We are off to Pittsburgh tomorrow night for Hutton's first b-day!!    Since I know Hutton has received his b-day card...I can show it to you now..   I'd like to think Hutton is already following Aunt Lynn's blog, but...lol....I do know his daddy & mommy check it out once in a while, so I didn't want to ruin the new card for them-lol..

I've had no caffeine yet this morning, so the brain cells aren't working like they should.  I can't remember any of the supplies here : (  The horse I fussy cut from some pp, it came in a kit. The stripe of hearts is from that same kit.  I know I used the Fiskars border punch & the Marvy corner round.  Back to inking all my edges : )

Well time to get to working.  Have a great Thursday!!  TFL  Lynn

Happy 1st Birthday Hutton!!

Yeah, made it through Monday : )  My boss is back, so work is back to normal-yuk.  Last week was so nice & quiet, I actually got a lot of work done...now the week before was even better- got nothing done...gotta love vacation : )  I spent the weekend buried in all sorts of scrapping goodies.  I was working on xmas tags, boxes & of course, cards, so I got a new one for you today-yeah : )

Check out this CUTIE!!!!!   Can you believe today he's 1 years old...oh my, it actually brings tears to my eyes.....so totally love this little guy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   We are off to Pittsburgh this weekend for his big family Birthday party.....here we come Hutton!!!  Can you tell I'm super excited : )

This is not Hutton's b-day card....I'll show you that later : )   I think the monkey sticker is Stickos ( I think).  Text pps is oooold My Mind's Eye.  Borders are all Target's $ section.  Used the Cricut & Marvy punch for my circles.  Notice...I didn't ink any of the edges here-lol.
Have a great day!!  TFL  Lynn

Back from Vegas

Hello all- Hope you missed me : )   We had an awesome in time in Vegas, unfortunately we didn't win big, so I have to keep my day job -lol!!  We had absolutely perfect weather, everyday was 95plus- perfect poolside weather & yes, we did enjoy the  pool.  We stayed at the Golden Nugget on Fremont Street, what fun!! 

Had to share a pic of my honey & me...don't we look happy & relaxed!!!
I have found a little time the last couple days to make some cards.  I missed my scrapping table, but I think I needed some time off- my mojo seemed real low before I left for vacation, but it seems to be working pretty good since we got back : )
Was trying to get some uni-sex or male b-day cards done...I think this fits.  All pp is oooold- have no clue of the brands.  Used the Marvy corner round punch.  The border is Sassafrass Lass (again w/the old).  chipboard star is Bella Blvd.  The  owl is actually a removable wall sticker. 
Have a great day, just think, it's already Tuesday!!  TFL  Lynn
