Do you now what day it is?! I’ll bet you do! Yes… it’s FRIDAY! I had the best day ever at work yesterday! My entire department was out at an event and I was the only one in the office! I got lots of stuff done and even got to have some lunch with my friend Shane. It really was the best day ever!! LOL! I’m getting a haircut after work today and will be off to Manhattan tomorrow to drop off a Stampin’ Up! order to my friend Isabella. Andrew will be joining me and we are going to wander around a bit. Hopefully the rain that we are supposed to get doesn’t last all day or even better, finishes really early!

Every other Friday is a even better because it’s a Fab Friday! It’s time for our nest challenge and this time we have a some colors for you…

Fab Fri 52 10-10-2014

I debated about what I was going to do for a bit and I kept coming back to the same idea so I ran with it! The base of today’s card is Tangelo Twist Card Stock and the background is a piece of Blackberry Bliss with a piece of Basic Black behind it. I stamped the greeting from the September Paper Pumpkin Kit in Versa-Mark and heat embossed it in Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder. My wreath is from the Wondrous Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on Tangelo Twist and cut out with the Wonderful Wreath Framelits.I heat embossed the berries with more Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder, I didn’t let the black ink dry completely so I would get that speckled look on the leaves. The spider in the middle is from the Bite Me Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed too and then fussy cut with my Paper Snips. The string is also from the September Paper Pumpkin Kit and the spider and wreath are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Three sequins from the Frosted Sequins Pack are adhered by the greeting to complete the card. I think that I was channeling our Frightful Wreath when I made this card! I like the way the wreath pops off of the Blackberry Bliss background and the Silver Embossing gives it a little added dimension. I hope that you enjoyed my card for the Fab Friday color challenge. Stop by the BLOG and check out the other projects from the rest of the Design Team and enter one of yours in the gallery! Thank you for your visit and most of all for your comments! They always brighten my day! Enjoy your Friday people! 🙂

Woo hoo! It’s Friday peeps and I had a great day yesterday! Work was not too bad again, and I got a lot done! After work Andrew and I headed to the Apple Store in Manhasset because it said online that still had some iPhones in stock. We got there around 6:20 and by 7:00 I had a brand new iPhone 6 Space Gray in my hands! Woo hoo! I was looking at the 6 Plus but it’s just way too big. I would like to put it in my pocket and the Plus just won’t fit! LOL! After Apple we went to Friday’s for dinner, I know, I was just there but it’s close and the food is pretty good! I spent the rest of the evening playing with my new toy! I’m really loving it! A nice upgrade and I can’t wait until they enable the Apple Pay System next month!

As chance would have it it’s also a Fab Friday and this week we have a neat little sketch for you…

Fab Fri 51 9-12-2014

I actually made this card two weeks ago by accident. I did the wrong week for the challenge! LOL! Like I said, such a dunce sometimes! Anyway, my card today starts with a base of Very Vanilla Card Stock and I adhered a piece of Kraft Card Stock to the entire card front. The circle is another piece of Very Vanilla that I punched out with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch and then ran it through the Big Shot with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I sponged on some Crumb Cake Ink to bring out the grain and then adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My flower is from the Bloom with Hope Host Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum Card Stock and cut it out with my Paper Snips. I used my Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers to color in the back side and then adhered it to the circle with Multi-Purpose Glue. The bird is from the Choose Happiness Stamp Set and is stamped in Soft Suede and cut out with my Paper Snips too. I stamped my greeting from the And Many More Stamp Set in Soft Suede on an Essentials Wooden Element. The heart is also one and is colored in with my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Marker. Under the circle is a piece of 7/8″ Cotton Ribbon. On top of that I stamped one of the feathers from the Four Feathers Stamp Set in Lost Lagoon on a piece of Pool Party and cut it out with the Feathers Framelits. Finally a piece of Gold Sequin Trim is tucked under the circle and completes the card. I love the eclectic mix of colors and elements and I’m also really liking the vellum flower colored in on the back with the Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers. So there is my Design Team card for the Fab Friday sketch challenge. Don’t forget to take a minute to stop by the blog and see this week’s other projects and put one of yours in the gallery so we can take a peek! I hope that you enjoyed the card and that you Friday is truly fabulous!! 🙂

A very happy Friday to you all! And a happy birthday to me! LOL! When I arrived home from work yesterday, there was a very nice little surprise waiting for me. I got some happy mail, all the way from my friend Carolyn in Australia! She sent me a lovely birthday card and some very delicious Tim-Tams.

Carolyn Birthday Card-WM

Isn’t that a cool card?! She really does make the neatest easel cards. And how appropriate is that mustache? LOL! I was also lucky enough to get my hands on the new iOS 8 software for the iPhone and iPad. I did mine in the morning and Andrew stopped by last night and did his. There are a few new features that are quite neat, like the ability to respond to a text message without leaving the app that you’re in. Siri is also vastly improved and if you have a 5S and your phone is plugged in, you can just say, “Hey Siri”, and she’s ready to go. Pretty cool stuff! My brother just happened to be on his way back from Chicago yesterday and took this very cool picture of the 9/11 Memorial as he was coming into New York and I just had to share it with you.

SouthwestJDK 9-11-2014

You can really see the lights from the memorial and I think the wing in the picture is pretty neat. Pretty strange to think that it’s been 13 years since that tragic day. And I can still tell you exactly what I was doing that entire day. Some things you just never forget.

Now on to happier things, like my card for the Fab Friday challenge. This time around it’s a color challenge…

Fab Fri 50 9-12-2014

Funnily enough, I actually did the card for the next Fab Friday challenge and had to quickly make this one last night. Sometimes my lack of sleep works against me. LOL! I have really been enjoying the Kraft Card Stock, so yes, you will be seeing a lot of that for the next few cards, and the heat embossing continues. The base for my card today is Whisper White Card Stock and I adhered a piece of Kraft to cover the entire front. On top of that is a piece of the Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum leaving a little bit of the Kraft peeking out the left side. All of the stamps that I used on this card are from the Garden Party Stamp Set. My tag is a piece is a piece of Pool Party and I used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and the Project Life Corner Rounder to round the bottom corners. The greeting is heat embossed in Calypso Coral Stampin’ Emboss Powder along with the small flowers and they are cut out with my Paper Snips. The larger flowers are heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and again, cut out with Paper Snips. Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere them to the tag and a piece of Gold 5/8″ Satin Ribbon is threaded through the top of the tag and a piece of Gold Baker’s Twine is tied around it. To finish off the card, I put two strips of the Beach House Washi Tape on a diagonal in the upper right hand corner. Again, loving the Kraft Card Stock and I like the way the gold looks with the Pool Party and Calypso Coral. And there you have the correct card for the Fab Friday color challenge this time around. Take a few minutes to visit the blog and see what the other designers have come up with. And if you have a minute, make a card and upload it to the gallery so we can see your take on the color challenge. I hope that you enjoyed today’s post. Variety is the spice of life! Thanks so much for coming by, and make sure you enjoy your Friday! 🙂

Hi everyone! It’s Friday!! You know how I feel about my Friday! I get to run some errands at work today too! It’s going to be a great Friday! Yesterday was as good as I made it! LOL! I came home and saw little Daniel for a bit. He just wants to go go go! I think that he will be walking in no time. He is so cute I can’t stand it! Last night was very good, it was Hunger Games – Catching Fire movie night with Andrew. I knew that he wouldn’t like the ending, it kind of leaves you hanging and he likes to have closure. But he had to see the movie and he did really like it! I told him only a few months until part one of the third book comes out. I will have to make sure that if we watch a series they are all available on iTunes from now on! I said it’s something to look forward to and now I’m guaranteed that we will see that one in the theater! 🙂

Good news! It’s a Fab Friday challenge day too! This time around we have a sketch for you…

Fab Fri 49 8-29-2014

Fun and simple, I stayed really true to the sketch too! My card base for today’s card is Sahara Sand Card Stock and across the bottom is a strip of Crushed Curry that I embossed with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The two flagged strips are Basic Black and Tangerine Tango. I wrapped a piece of Basic Black Baker’s Twine around the card and tied it in a bow on the left side. The main panel is a piece of the Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper backed with a piece of Basic Gray. My three happy little pumpkins are from the Fall Fest Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Tangerine Tango and Memento Tuxedo Black. The Fun Fall Framelits cut them out and some Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere them to the card. After I put the card together I realized that I forgot a greeting! Thankfully the Holiday Home Photopolymer Stamp Set made it easy for me to stamp the greeting on the panel even though it was already adhered to the card! A fun fall card and the pumpkins are just the cutest aren’t they?! There is my Design Team card for this week’s Fab Friday sketch challenge and I hope that you enjoyed it! Head on over to the blog and see what my talented teammates have come up with to inspire you! Make sure that you take a little time and add your card to the gallery so we can see what you do! Thank you so much for coming by to visit with me today! I hope that your Friday is a very good one! 🙂

T G I F!! T G I F!! T G I F!! Can you tell that I’m excited that it’s Friday?!?! I’m not going to lie, I’m over work this week, too many things that shouldn’t be given to me to do are given to me. I have a few errands to run today, like the Apple Store so that will make the day much better! It was a gorgeous day here yesterday in the high 70’s and a slight breeze with plenty of sun! It sure doesn’t feel like August and I hope that this doesn’t mean that there will be another bad winter! But I’m really enjoying it at the moment! Tonight I have some crafty things to do and at some point over the weekend I would like to get the Stampin’ Galley a little more organized! We’ll see how that goes! LOL! What do they say about the best laid plans?! What’s on for the weekend for you people?!

Today is a very special Friday not just because it a Fab Friday but it’s a special Fab Friday! Mindy had her little baby boy Ian!! We decided to surprise her with a little change of plans! We all made baby card this time! Congratulations Mindy and Jon!! He’s adorable!!

Fab Friday Baby-001

I went with a nice simple card that would be easy to duplicate, I actually know quite a few people that have had babies lately. Little Daniel turned nine months old yesterday and is crawling and sitting up already! They do grow up so fast! My card begins with a base of Baked Brown Sugar Card Stock. The background is a piece of Lullaby Designer Series Paper, I punched the left side with the Scallop Edge Border Punch and adhered it to the base with SNAIL. My large flag is a piece of Hello Honey and I used the Circles Collection Framelits to cut out the circle in the middle. Across the top is a piece of Coastal Cabana that I trimmed with the Small Scallop Stampin’ Trimmer Rotary Cutting Blade and adhered it to the flag with Multi-Purpose Glue. Before adhering it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals I stamped my sentiment from the Dear Heart Photopolymer Stamp Set in Baked Brown Sugar. The sweet onesie is from the Something for Baby Stamp Set and is stamped in Pistachio Pudding and cut out with the Baby’s First Framelits. Some Stampin’ Dimensionals hold that in place too. Like I said simple but I love the layout and the colors! I really hope that Mindy and you both enjoyed the card and that Mindy was surprised! That’s my card for this week’s Welcome Ian challenge for Fab Friday. Head on over to the blog to see what my teammates have done and let’s see what you can come up with! Thank you for coming by to see me today, I hope that you all have a fabulous Friday! 🙂

Oh yes! It’s Friday! You know how I feel about that! LOL! It was another nice day, sunny and cool, only in the low 80’s. As far as work goes I spoke too soon, it was a little nutty yesterday. I got to do things that aren’t really my responsibility again. I help out whenever I can and that gets me where?! What can you do?! Last night Andrew came by and we did some more apartment stuff and then took a run to IKEA. I have to say that I’m little disappointed in the lighting choices of late. I’m all for the environment but the LED lights are not quite as bright as the old bulbs and they are quite pricey. I ended up not getting anything but Andrew did have some hot dogs for dinner. Two hot dogs, a soda and chips for $2.50! You can’t beat that! The rest of the evening was just spent sitting outside and talking. Sometimes the simple things make life wonderful!

And this Friday is made even better because it’s a Fab Friday! This week we have a really neat, simple sketch…

Fab Fri 47 8-01-2014

I have to admit I had a lot of fun making this card. The card begins with a base of Smoky Slate Card Stock. For the background I took a piece of Night of Navy Card Stock and used the Circles Collection Framelits to cut out a circle in the lower right portion of the card. I then used the Hearts and Stars Decorative Mask and some Embossing Paste to create the stars on the background. After it dried, I adhered it to the base. The clouds are made using the Word Bubbles Framelits and some Whisper White and are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My large star is a piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper cut out with the Stars Framelits. For the greeting I used the Alphabet Rotary Stamp to create my own greeting in Memento Tuxedo Black. I flagged the ends and adhered it and the star with some more Stampin’ Dimensionals. I think it’s neat the way that the cut out circle appears as if it’s in front of the background. And to me, it looks like the moon! That’s my Fab Friday Design Team card for this week’s sketch challenge! Take a minute to go over and visit the blog to see what my fellow designers have made and don’t forget to enter your card in the gallery so we can see what you do with the sketch! I hope you enjoyed the card and thanks so much for stopping by today! 🙂

Fab Friday 45 and a Word from Andrew

Posted on

I have to say that today was a very good day at work for me. I ended up having to do my monthly delivery today so I was gone for 2 hours. Came back, did a little work, and then was released at 3 PM. Sounds like parole… because it is. LOL! After work, Andrew came by to help me move some stuff (yes, still!). When we reached the old apartment, it was approximately 115º, a definite thing that I will not be missing about living on the second floor. We got a lot more stuff moved, had some dinner and organized some more. And now Andrew would like to have a word with you…

Hey folks! I [obviously] read Justin’s blog every day and I’m flattered to be mentioned quite often. I’m even more flattered though that you all take an interest in my life and well-being. It brought a big smile to my face to see all your birthday wishes yesterday, so thank you all so much! And don’t worry, Justin will be taking me to dinner very soon! LOL! Also, when I got to his house this afternoon, he had a birthday card for me! Surprise! Here it is in all it’s glory…

Andrew's Bday Card-WM

I was quite impressed with the card as I always am with Justin’s work, but I really like the 3D look of the skyline and my Clark Kent-looking hair. LOL! The card is currently hanging in my living room with the rest of my birthday cards, but we all know which ones shines the brightest, don’t we?!

So thank you all once again, I really appreciate it. Now back to our regularly scheduled programming…

Today’s a good Friday because it’s the other Friday and I’m over on the Fab Friday blog for this week’s sketch challenge…

Fab Fri 45 7-04-2014

I just so happened to get a new box of goodies yesterday and used three of them on today’s card. My card starts off with a base of Basic Black Card Stock and my background is a piece of Flashback Designer Series Paper. I embossed a strip of Crushed Curry with the Zig Zag Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. On top of that is a piece of Real Red that I punched out using the Angled Tag Topper Punch to make the tag. I thought it needed a little something more so I used the Eclectic Paper Piercing Pack to pierce around the edge. The greeting/image is from the Well Worded Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on Very Vanilla and cut out with the Mustache Framelits Die. A simple, fun, retro card that’s great for when you don’t have a lot of time (moving/sorting… will it ever end?!). Make sure you head on over to the Fab Friday blog to see the rest of the Design Team projects for this week’s sketch. I would love to see what you do with the sketch, so upload your card to the gallery for us! A great big thank you from both Andrew and I. You always put a smile on our faces! Have a happy and safe 4th of July! 🙂
