First Stamping Boutique Project

Here's my first ever project for The Stamping Boutique Challenge Design Team!  This is for the "Changing of the Season" challenge.  I love fall colors.
I used the Frankenstein digi stamp.  Colored with Copics,  the leaves I have had forever, added ribbon and some twine.  Happy it's Thursday busy weekend coming up.  My daughter is turning 13 (help me..) and we are having a party Saturday night and she's got some friends sleeping over.  Hope everyone's week has been good!!

A card and some NYC pics

My girlfriend Patti and I love Manhatten we go as often as the budget will allow.  My other half (Mark) went to the races in Loudon yesterday and Patti and I took off for lower Manhatten.  We went to Mario Batali's Eataly.  I don't know if anyone has gone but oh my goodness it is the best place.  It's a huge market/restaurant.  They have tons of food to buy for home - meat counter, cheese, fresh pastas, boxed pasta, sauce, candy oh my!  There are different restaurant areas to choose from.  We went right for the carbs to the Pizza and Pasta area.  Our meal was fantastic.  Just loved it.  We went down to Little Italy for the San Gennaro festival which was a ton of fun.  Ate some more there.  We walked the Brooklyn Bridge - all in all it was a great day of just wandering.  So here are a few pics of our trip and then a card!

The card is a Wee Stamp.  I just love these, they are so delicate and beautiful.  Colored with Copics, added some glitter.  Have no idea what the paper is found it in "the stash" and literally had just enough to cover the card!  Back to Monday tomorrow.  Hope everyone had a nice weekend.  I need a day off from my weekend heehee.

Crazy Month of September

It's been a nutty couple of weeks in my house, started back to school and dance, poor doggy got neutered and had baby teeth removed and then my daughter fell and knocked out a tooth (permanent of course) and gave herself whiplash.  We are still trying to sell our house and I feel like all I've done for months is clean the house.  We did get to go see the Uproar concert, Mark and I are huge fans of Avenged Sevenfold and Bullet for my Valentine and they were both great so at least we got to have a little fun!  I did get to make some cards too!!
This cutie is a digi from The Paper Shelter.  Colored with Copics, flowers are all from Wild Orchid.  My paper is such a mess right now it took me forever to pick something out.  I entered this in The Paper Shelter's Anything Goes challenge.  Hope everyone is having a good week.

Cute Card Thursday Challenge

I used this cute Magnolia stamps for Cute Card Thursday's Pinch and a Punch Challenge.  Using at least one punch was an easy challenge.  I love blue/green combo's (I'm pretty sure I've said that before lol).  Hope everyone had a good day, it's nice having your Monday be a Tuesday!  Although it's been raining all day and I think it's supposed to rain all week, we are going to need an ark!

Cute Little Turkey!

I love these little Bugaboo Turtles they are so stinking cute!  Day off today for Labor Day and I got to make some cards and watch a couple good horror movies in peace!  Don't feel like going back to work tomorrow!!  We made it through the hurricane better than we thought we would, we were without power for three days which wasn't bad at all considering some Towns in Connecticut were almost a week without it. 

I entered this in Bugaboo's Anything Goes Challenge.  Love Fall colors.  Hope everyone had a nice weekend we went to see Cirque's Quidam, excellent as always!
