Autumn.. Well, I did manage to get a card done.. with all scraps !! It's amazing what you can do if you put your mind to it :) Michael's had all of their stamps 40% off so of course I had to go get a couple ( well 5 ). Back to the scrap box... see you tomorrow.. Jen

October 24, 2009 Hi everyone.. well... this move is taking FOREVER :( the banks are really out of control, they have gone from one extreme to the other.. from giving everyone and their brother a loan to taking FOREVER to approve a loan.. we are putting 75% down and they still gave us a hard time, go figure !! sorry to get on a rant but it is SOOO frustrating.. My scrap room is all packed up but was lost without my computer "Chip" ( yes I named my computer ) I hooked him back up !! I know it's a male cause he's always giving me a lot of grief :) anyway I wanted to share with you a cute little gift I received from my friend Shelley, it had two Basic Grey stamps and a Michaels gift card... Love it !!!
I can't do any scrapping or card making cause everything is in boxes, but all of my new stamps are sitting here looking at me, and my scrap box is still out and I see a black ink pad that didn't get packed and I see a couple of buttons on the floor, I should be able to put something together ...Have a great weekend... Jen

Little Monster..... My grandson will be 4 in November, or as he says it "Nomember", so I made him a card.. He likes dinosaurs but I had this monster stamp and have been wanting to use it, and he can be a little monster at times :) This will be my last post for a few days.. time to pack up the computer.. enjoy..

Happy Birthday Card... I needed a card for a man and all I had was cutesie cards so I made this up real quick... I stamped the background ( already packed up the stamps so I don't remember what company ) the black cut out I did a while ago at my LSS.. I did a few of these cause I love the design.. and the happy birthday is from a "Recollection" stamp set.. and colored it with my copics.. I just ordered some new stamp sets from Just Rite and Paper Trey Ink.. I can't wait to get them and stamp, stamp, stamp... still working on some Christmas presents, will be posting those in a week or so... Hope you're having a good day.. Jen

Pumpkin Kisses... Here are the treat bags I made for the neighborhood kids, well they're not kids anymore but they still love to get the bags ! I had to make them up quick because I kept eating the kisses :) I have known most of the kids since they were babies and now, having lived here 15 years they are all driving now and a couple of them are off to college next year...hard to believe, time really does fly... the saying is: No scary ghosts, nor ugly witches or creepy little bugs, just a little treat with Halloween wishes and lots of kisses and hugs !
The clipart is PC Crafters and font is CK hand & Vestite. I wanted to put some bling and more "stuff" on them but I know they will just be thrown away... Oh Well Annabelle !!! It's chilly here, I even had long pants and tennies on... and I NEVER wear shoes, always sandals :0 but hope this weather keeps up for a long time ( not a chance, it is California ya know ) have a good Wednesday .. I'm off to make some Christmas gifts, see ya later.. Jen

Happy Tuesday :) Hope all of you are having a good day.. I got in the mood to make a few cards last night. I had to use stuff I had laying around since I have packed up almost everything (very sad face) I hate to leave my beautiful house but am looking forward to decorating a new one.. and no more stairs.. Woo Hoo!! Anyway here is one of the cards, I think it looks sort of vintagey (is that a word). I think I am going to invest in a light box and lights so I can take better pictures, so all of the bling will show up better :)
I used my new Spellbinders "Fancy Tags" and cut the ends off and found the pearls in my bag of odds and ends... I am working on some Halloween bags for the neighborhood kids so check back for those... enjoy your day... Jen

Mojo Monday 107... Got Milk ? Well, I did manage to get the Mojo Monday card done.. My son,daughter-n-law & grandson gave me some stamps and Copic's for my birthday.. this is one of the stamps. It is from "Craft Lounge".. I really like these stamps, I just might have to get a few more of these :) This is much cuter in person.. the background paper is sparkly :)
I'm not sure if I will be posting for a while.. it's time to pack up the scrap room :( But I am looking forward to decorating a new scrap room. I got a new craft table ( 62 X 40 ) at Ikea... holy cow... that place will drive you crazy.. it's so big, I got lost on every turn !! Have a good day and I will see you in about a week.. ( I hope ) Jen

Yikes!! This is so funny.. Joseph found his cousin Alyssa's makeup and told me " I need to put on makeup cause I'm getting married ! :) I have no idea where the heck he got that .. He really got into it, he tried to put on the eye shadow but you can see where it ended up !! I'm hoping to get a couple of cards done and another page, but this darn packing is getting in the way of my scrappin'... Enjoy your day .. Jen
