Happy Thursday already

Hello all- Happy Summer!!!  Today is suppose to feel like summer around here- high near 90 and sunny-yeah!!!   We had a fun & busy Memorial Day weekend, but the weather could have been nicer.   It's been a crazy couple of weeks...last week, my husband went to Vegas with his buddies, so that left me w/my boys!!  Let me tell you, two dogs are much easier when there are 2 people-lol.  Elvis is growing everyday, he is just toooo darn cute & fluffy : )  Him & Wilson are still working it out, but it's getting better : )  I promise new pics soon.

I've been working on cards, but not as many as normal, just haven't had the time- I blame my husband for going away last week-lol.  My new card for you today, was made a month or so ago.  I have a hard time getting pics of my new cards lately too. 

This card was a "special order" recipient likes to garden.  Background pp is from Joann's.  Not sure of the brand on the red pp, but it's from a 6x6 Xmas pad. used the Cuttlebug & embossing folder.  also used the cricut & Fiskars border punch.  I can't remember the name of the rub-ons,  but if you need to know leave me a msg & I'll look it up- I can see the package at home : )

Well time to get back to work, I can't seem to catch up here either.  Have a great day!! TFL  Lynn

Yeah, made it through another week!!!   Sorry got lost again....I actually had to do the fun state report for work this week - it was due this week & I hadn't started it : )  I know I sound like an ultimate procrastinator & sometimes I can be, but w/this stupid report- it's my bosses fault!!!  Ok, enough of that fun- the report is done, submitted  & behind me for another couple months : )  

I'm totally looking forward to my weekend!!!   Mom & Oscar are coming to visit!!  Mom & I are off the CK Scrapping Convention tomorrow- yeah, can't wait to buy allllll sorts of new goodies : )   I can guarantee mom & I will do some other shopping too : )   Mom hasn't seen Elvis is awhile now, so I'm looking forward to her seeing how much our little guy has grown- he's 42+lbs now : )

Better get to my new card & get to working.  The dragonfly stickers are atd Momenta.  Cheveron pp is October Afternnon.  The turq pp & orange pp are K & company.  Used my fav Fiskars border punch, inked all the edges.  The stamp is Hero Arts.

Have a great weekend!!! TFL  Lynn

Quick Wed. post

Hello everyone- Happy Wednesday- half way to the weekend : )  Just a quick post today, as I have the blasted report due in less then a week & this morning I need to work on it-yuk!!!   I wish the sun would come back out, that would help make this day better : )  It is still fairly warm though-62degrees at 830am is pretty good.

Made this card a couple plus weeks ago.  See even though I wasn't posting,  I was still making cards : )  Striped pp is Hobby Lobby, graph pp is Recollection, as is the cute purple elephant & banner.  Stamp is Hero Arts.

Enjoy your Wednesday  & thanks for stopping by!!  Lynn

Tuesday is better then Monday-lol

What can I say, Monday's are not my favorite least we made it through another one, onto Tuesday  : )  It's another bright, warm sunny morning- totally in love w/the weather we've been having.  This past weekend was picture perfect!!  It's so nice to have the yard dried up & not have muddy we pups : )   We all had a good weekend- like I said we enjoyed the beautiful weather & I of course, made some cards.

My new card is a "special order"...obviously turning 50, but they looove martinis.  I thought I had a couple more martini embellies then I did, but I think this works....thank goodness I went shopping on Saturday & found these awesome olive embellies : )   I believe the green pps are American Crafts.  Used the Cricut for the oval & "50", Fiskars favorite scalloped border punch.  The olives are Sandy Lion, not sure of the martini glass or the mini alphabets.....sorry Dr. Pepper hasn't kicked in yet this morning.

Have a great Tuesday!! TFL  Lynn

Sunny Thursday

Another gorgeous spring day here- high near 80- if you could only see the big smile I have on my face : )  Wish I wasn't stuck at work though-lol.  I actually get out early today, I have to go have some stitches removed, yuk!  What I forgot to mention yesterday about my disappearing act, is I also had oral surgery-yuk!!!  It really wasn't that bad & I soooo hope this takes care of the problem- I've been trying for over a year now.   Yeah, one more day till the weekend & we are suppose to have great weather too!!  My husband is itching to get his boat in the water-lol.

Speaking of  boats...... I made this card a month or so ago as a "special request".  I've been told the mommy has framed this & put it in the baby's room : )  I can't remember any of the brands for this card- sorry, like I said made it a while ago.

Have a great day!! TFL  Lynn

Hello world!!!

Hello All!!!!   Wow- I'm sorry I've been missing from my blog for almost a month now-yikes (as my father would say-lol)!!!   Life just got beyond crazy!!!!!!     I know before I went missing I introduced you all to our wonderful to new furry family member-Elvis!!!  Our little guy is now 3 1/2 months old & growing like a weed! He's actually doubled in weight since we got him- now 36lbs : )   Elvis actually had some health issues about a month ago & I'd say that's when I went completely missing- off the chart, so to speak : )    Without going into alllllll the details....Our little guys is on medication now, that seems to be helping the problem & we hope it stays that way!!!  Needless to say, this completely rocked our world & had me so disheartened I wasn't making too many cards- I really didn't care about much, just both my babies being happy & healthy!!!!  Wilson is still adjusting to his little brother, sometimes he loves to have a playmate : ) You should see them chase each other in the backyard!!   My 2 boys don't lay together quietly too often & I can't believe I was able to get the camera when the did...................

I spent most of last weekend, making cards- it was wonderful!!!  I find card making so relaxing!!!   Yeah, a new card to show you : )  The banner & butterfly  are October Afternoon.  The pink polka dot pp is Crate Paper.The other pps are My Mind's Eue.  The zig zag punch is Ek Success & the bottoms are from my stash.  Oh yeah, inked all the edges : )
A quick note to Pat from Washington.....thank you for your comment- it just made my day & again I'm sorry I've been missing from here & : )  I actually tried to load some cards on there today & am having a hard time w/the new setup of the site, but I'll keep trying & get it sooner or later!!  Thanks again for taking them time to check up on me : )
 Have a great day!! TFL Lynn
