Quick quick post for the day- my desk is already a mess....but no worries, I have my Dr. Pepper : )  Oh yeah, & it's FRIDAY!!!  It's amazing what this day does for my mood : )  I can't say the weather is a mood-lifter...very very gray out & coooold!!  It's suppose to get in the 50's over the weekend, it'll feel like spring.  Mom & I have our last craft show of the year on Sunday : )  I would bet we'll fit some shopping in too-lol.

I promise next week to show you some of my new Xmas cards.....I haven't had time to load them onto the computer yet.  I made this card last week, it's a special order for a lady who just graduated Nursing school.  I can see the sheet of plaid pp, but can't think of the brand- sorry,if you need to know- leave me a comment : )  The nursing embellies are K & company's, life's Little Moments.  Red stripe pp & gingham is My Mind's Eye.  
I hope everyone has a great weekend!!  TFL  Lynn

It feels like a cup cake kind of day : )

Trying to do better w/my posts,  but yesterday my boss just wasn't on board w/that.  I hate when I get to work & he's already there w/problems.  I can't even get my Dr. Pepper before I have to dive right in-lol.  I'm also trying to work on some Continuing Education that the state requires before the end of the year-yuck!!   We've had a couple gray days around here, but the sun is shining into my little window this morning, hopefully I good sign, for a good day : )   I've got the Xmas music on at work & hopefully I can talk one of the girls into putting up the work Xmas tree & we will all feel festive : )  I really do love this time of year!!!   Again, you'd think I 'd be sharing a Xmas card w/you..... figured I hadn't shared any cupcake cards w/you lately & you know I alllllways make cupcake cards-lol.

I'm said to say this is my last cupcake from this package of stickers (yup, actually used one up-lol), they are Hobby Lobby.  The pink pp is My Mind's Eye.  Used the cricut for the circles, also used a Fiskars border punch.  Note- no edge inking : ) 
Well better get busy before the boss does get here- already have the Dr. Pepper today!!  Have a great day!!  TFL  Lynn

Baby it's cold outside

Brrrr, not really used to these coooold mornings....I know, get used to it, it's just the beginning : )   We actually got a couple inches of snow on Sunday, my honey even got called into work.  The snow is gone now though & it's time for wet, muddy Wilson paws : )    Our house is just about all decorated for Christmas.  I'm one of those people, who can't wait to put the Xmas tree up, my husband is the complete opposite, but he tolerates me will-lol.  I LOVE all my Xmas ornaments, they are like "old friends" to me. 

Now wouldn't you think after that, I'd have a new Xmas card for you- nope...............

Everything on this card is old & I mean OLD.  The stroller sticker came in one of my first scrap booking kits, no clue of the brand.  No clue on the pps either, like I said ooooold.  I did use my EK Success border punch for the big scallop.   

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

I think I got lost-lol

Holy cow, I can't believe I haven't posted since November 6th- I'm soooo sorry to my faithful followers : )  I promise to try to do better, but can't make any guarantees on that promise until Christmas is over.   I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!  We did!!!  As you get older, you really appreciate the family time you get.  You should see little Hutton, he is just so darn cute, he's at that age where he thinks about being independent and then finds mommy & daddy's arms are better-lol.   My mom made an awesome spread of our traditional turkey meal w/ALLLLL the trimmings-yummy- thanks, mom for all your hard work!!  I'm sorry I didn't get back on here for a quick post before Thanksgiving- I really wanted to.....I wanted all my family & friends to know how thankful I am for them...if you are reading this- that means you!!!!

This was my final Thanksgiving card.  I know the background pp came from Joann's, sorry can't remember the brand.  Gingham pp from my scrap box.  Sticker is Hobby Lobby.  Stamp is Studio G, used the Martha Stewart punch, oh & the Fiskars border punch.  Inked alllll the edges, as usual.
Have a great week!!  Happy Cyber shopping, if that is what you are doing today.  I might have to take a peek, though I'm suppose to be working, what better time-lol.   TFL  Lynn

Hello : )

Happy Tuesday!!  Sorry about being missing for a while here-  I am busy!!!  I've been going in a couple different directions for a bit now & it's starting to slow me down : )  Lately life is cards cards & more cards- not that that is a bad thing, but I can't catch up.  I've got "special orders" galore & mom & I just did our first craft show of the year this past went good : )    What cards I had left, are now gone too.  I have a customer who is totally "nuts" over my cards & I only see her a couple times a year, so when I do- she stocks up : )   As of last night, I didn't have a one card in the house- it made me sad, so I made another one-lol!!!  Work is crazy & that stupid report is due again next week & like normal it's barely started....arggghhhh!! 

Ok, on to my card- that makes me smile : )

I made this card a couple weeks ago : )  I haven't had time to take pics of any new cards yet.   Holly pp is Graphics 45.  Red text pp is Girls Paperie (old, but a fav).  Stamp is Hero Arts.  The awesome 3D sticker is Walmart- a couple years ago my mom hit the "mother load" at her local Walmart.  They must have forgotten to put there xmas stickers out that year, so after xmas mom found them for like $.49 a package- I have a stash-lol.  I can't remember the brand on the gold borders, but another buy- totally worth it.  I inked allll the edges, added some gold bling & bow  & done.  I loooooove making xmas cards!!!

Have a great day!!  TFL  Lynn
