Good Morning and Happy Friday!

I'm constantly struggling for the perfect sentiment to add to my cards, yep like most of you I have the usual stamp sets,  Happy Birthday, Thanks etc.  But after a awhile they get old.  Well thanks to Steph this problem has be solved,  she has the greatest sentiments for almost card, gift or scrapbook layout.  And you can't beat the price! This is Humor,  I love it...  I bet this is what my kids are saying every time I call them.

Oh I am so loving these Fall days,  Country Can makes me think of a secluded cabin in the woods, and warm quilts and of course home made comfort food.....

Have a crafty weekend....

Simply Sentiments Thursday and the "Ask Floppy" coupon Winner!

Happy Thursday to you all!

Well, yes, it is Thursday and the week is shaking down.  My coffee table is all built, now just to fill a few screw holes, and finish sanding and staining.  The 2nd house in Lynch will be buttoned up today, the laundry is done, the dog is happy, Mark is working and here I am!  Ohhhh, and I got a few lessons on using the cutting torch to remove some stubborn bolts on the race car chassis (without damaging good parts) AND I got to weld on it as well!  That goes a long way in my book cause Sir Markus will be zipping around the track at 100 mph plus and I know that he trusts me enough to put welds on that frame!  Lots of love going on there!

Ok, enough on the home stuff, Glitterbabe has a few new sentiments for you today!  So let's roll them out!

You know, Glitterbabe is the sentiment queen at FLDD, so I had better get on the stick, Ive got ton's of them, just have not gotten to them!  I NEED a clone!

Now, I announced Monday that I would have Sir Markus do a drawing on the "Ask Floppy" questions and the Winner is Kim B!  If you will email me at I will email you your winning $5.00 coupon!

Ok, I think that about covers it for today!  I am off to update rewards points, work on the books for Presley, and re epoxy a bathtub!  What fun!

Hoping you all are having a great week!
Jess and Stef, and the Latte Ladies Linda B and Susie Que!

Terrific Tuesday

Hey Yall!!!!

It's been a busy few days - making plans to move this weekend - so I've got to box up and move my entire craft room - not to mention hide and move as much as I can so my husband doesn't realize how much I really have.  LOL  I'm sure no one else has to do this.

I still had time for a couple of quick projects - a gift tag and a fall card.

The first is a gift tag - Big Hugs   -   Digi   Candy apple - mmmmmm

I colored with alcohol markers - R43, R46, R29 & YR27 - tag made with Gumball Green cardstock - ribbon and brad from my stash.

The second is a fall card with leaves - Didi      Bag of leaves

 Colored with alcohol markers -  YR23, YR12, YR27 & YG63

I used scraps to mat and add the fall leaves.

Well have a Terrific Tuesday!!!!!!!!   Happy Crafting!!!

See ya next time

Morning Everyone!  Well, last week was one hectic week, AND I had to make an emergency flight to Orlando/Tampa, which in the end turned out to be unnecessary, but it was too late, so I spent the entire weekend working at my mom's helping her out with some house issues!  And I was having internet withdrawals, because she does not have internet, so needless to say, even thought I love my mom dearly, and more, I am glad to be able to get back to work!  That being said, I had absolutely NO time to do any new drawings, but The Halloween Sale is still on and This week is the last full week of the month, so you know what that means!  IT is PICK YOUR FREEBIE WEEK!  The coupon code is MM824 and is good for 1 (one) $3.00 freebie!

I haven't even had time to go through the eye candy for you for this week, but I will step up my game here this week and get you some goodies out there.

NOW, some of you did post questions last week, so Here is the list!

From Rufus:1) Do you EVER sleep? 'Cause I read Manic Monday and can't figure out when you'd possibly have time to sleep!

     Answer:  Actually, I do sleep, but when I do, Im working in my mind!  It takes a lot of scheduling to get done what I do in my day, and somedays, some things get put off to the next day!  If I could film a day in my life, I would get tired just watching it.  And the time I actually sleep is at night, sometimes!

Actual work day goes like this:  Up at 4:30 end at 10:30 or 11:00 pm, and run all the time in between! (I am always taking applications for helpers, if any of you live in my area lol!)

From Rufus:  2) What does Sir Marcus think of your telling stories on him, and do you ever "embellish" just a tiny bit?? After all we card-makers are known to "embellish" just a bit! 

     Answer:  Sir Markus does not have a say so in the approval process!  If he does it, it is fair game for the blog!  And if it is funny to boot, it is really fair game!  He is a good sport about it and hey, that is why I keep him around, for comic relief!  And no, no embellishment is necessary, the funnies are really that funny!  I couldn't come up with embellishments that make them any better!  That is one of Mark's better qualities, he can do it bad, all by himself! (ok, sometimes I do help but not near to the extent that he does!)  Oh yeah, and Ed and Rena Contribute as well, but hey, Sir Markus has WAAAAAAY more experience!

From Kim B:  Hi! How many cards to you make each month? 

     Answer:  I am sooooooo ashamed to say that I rarely make a card, I spend way too much time making the images, and coming up with new products.  By the way, there is a new product getting ready to come on line soon, I have been promising it, and once it passes the Glitterbabe stress test, it will be online for you all!  (oh gosh, I am a terrible tease, aren't I)

Now for the Stumper:  A lovely customer posted a question
?   How did you  meet Glitterbabe?

     Answer:  Well, let's see, I was swimming in the Short end of the Gene Pool, and she was in the funny end of the Gene Pool, and we sorta bumped into each  We hatched out from two eggs next to each other in the dairy section of a Super Walmart.....not buying that one either?  Immaculate Connection?.......sheesh, ok, truth.  She and I were both creators in the StitchyBear Digital Stamps store and were "drawn" to each other......Now that is funny, I don't care who you are LOL!  We have been doodling together ever since!  Gotta love my Glitterbabe!

Now, if the person who posted this question, will please send me your name, I will put you in the drawing for the $5.00 coupon!  I want to be fair, and since I deleted the email, I need a smack on the head!  As soon as I get this information, or on Wednesday, I will have Sir Markus do the drawing!

Ok, now it is work time!  Gotta paint, mop, hang smoke detectors, work on the paperwork, wash the clothes, clean up Marks disaster in the kitchen from using the fryer, and other general Domestic Goddess type duties!  We at Floppy Latte's Digital Designs wish you all a great week!

Low Cal Halloween Treats!

Just love the Lollipops made from digis,  they are so easy and so cute.  I see them in craft stores everywhere.  This is Halloween Flower, so many options for this.  I made a ton of lollipops and placed them in clear plastic, tied with a quick bow and I have awesome low cal treats for my co-workers.  The goodie bag is another option, just fill it with yummy treats and your ready for quick gift giving.

Aren't these cool fall days wonderful!  This Stylized Tree is perfect for any type of card.  I'm going to try black/white next for an elegant wedding or sympathy card.

So many options, so little play time

Glitterbabe's Corner

happy hump day and welcome to GLITTERBABE'S CORNER!

fall is in the air.  heck!  winter is in the air!  at least here in midwest illinois it is.  it's 38F this morning.  THAT is just TOO COLD for me in september!!!!  but it sure works it helping to "get creative".  perfect weather for fall images.  speaking of which....  here are my new releases this week....


we are on a roll!

be sure to check out the following....

1....  HALLOWEEN SALE at the store
2....  susie's post below (that girl sure can create)
3....  MANIC MONDAY (below susie's post) (floppy just doesn't quit)

and just to add a WIDER smile to your face....

joke of the week...  COUNTRY LOGIC

An Iowa farmer drove in his pickup to a neighbor's farm, and knocked on the door.
A boy, about 9, opened the door. The following conversation developed:
"Is your Dad home?"
"No, Sir, he isn't; he went to town."
"Well, is your Mother here?"
"No, Sir, she went to town with Dad."
"How about your brother, Howard?  Is he here?"
"No, Sir, He went with Mom and Dad."
The rancher stood there for a few minutes, shifting from one foot to the other, mumbling to himself.
The young boy asked; "Is there anything I can do for you? I know where all the tools are, if you want to borrow one, or I can give Dad a message."
"Well," said the rancher uncomfortably, "I really wanted to talk to your Dad. It's about your brother Howard getting my daughter, Suzie, pregnant."
The boy thought for a moment. "You would have to talk to Dad about that. I know he charges $500 for the bull and $50 for the hog, but I don't know how much he charges for Howard."

gotta love them country boys!

Terrific Tuesday


What a hectic few days - I had to go out of town with work - not much time for my favorite past time.  I did manage to make a few cards for Terrific Tuesday.

I'm in the Halloween Spirit this week - Artsy Coffin

I've entered this card in a challenge - SK Digis Challenge - Black & White + one color

I cut and matted the image with concord crush. 

This one's for you Glitterbabe - Boo Toombstone

I color toombstone with copic markers and sponged the background with ink pads.
I'm entering this in challenge - anything Goes  - at my heart Pieces

 This last one is a sports themed card - Home Run - Swing Batter Batter Batter

I don't make many boys/mens cards so I'm entering this one in an Here come the boys Challenge

I colored with Copic markers, matted with Robin Hood Red paper  and baseball paper - I added two beige brads to finish it up.

Well that's all for today - I might sneak in an extra blog later on this week ~~~  I can't wait to what Linda has up her sleeve for Friday!

Have a Terrific Tuesday!!!!!

Manic Monday and all that Jazz!

Happy Manic Monday to you all!  What a week last week!  The truck instrument cluster decided to take a holiday, and a bite out of the checkbook - there goes my new Compound Sliding 12" Cut Mitre Saw and Drill Press, (Update:    The Compound Sliding Mitre Saw is IN THE HOUSE!)  The race car rebuild  project is coming along nicely, (Pictures to follow soon!) Finished with the "House from Hades" (including a stint up 45 ft in the air on an extension ladder, with a bucket of paint and a brush....good thing heights don't bother Mark or myself!), Mark is off on a Dredge Job in S.C this week,  Oy, the peace and quiet, Snooch is her darling Diva Self when Daddy is gone, I have probably sat on her 3 or four times already because she has to stay right up on me when he is gone.  I guess she thinks Momma will be lost without her and her "Daddy Person", I have decided to build a table this week......Ok, so it will probably take me more than a week cause I only have TWO hands, picked up another small painting job here in the neighborhood, and did some drawing as well!  Ok, now what to do for this week.....any ideas?

Oh yeah, I have New Releases!   (good thing I rely on sticky notes!)

New Releases:

a little chuckle for you....
Story from a Kansas State Highway Patrol officer:

I made a traffic stop on an elderly lady the other day for speeding
on U.S. 166 Eastbound at Mile Marker 73 just East of 
Sedan , KS .
I asked for her driver's license, registration, and proof of insurance.
The lady took out the required information and handed it to me.
In with the cards I was somewhat surprised (due to her advanced age)
to see she had a conceal carry permit. I looked at her and ask if
she had a weapon in her possession at this time.

She responded that she indeed had a .45 automatic in her glove box.
Something---body language, or the way she said it---made me want
to ask if she had any other firearms. She did admit to also having
a 9mm Glock in her center console. Now I had to ask one more
time if that was all. She responded once again that she did have
just one more, a .38 special in her purse. I then asked her what
was she so afraid of.
She looked me right in the eye and said, "Not a damn thing!"

Seniors - Don't mess with them. They didn't get old by being stupid
