Happy Birthday card continued...

Thanks for posting the birthday card...and all the crooked letters! I was trying to place the "birthday" the way they had it on the sticker sheet and then the spacing got messed up and it started slanting downward. And not so easy to stick die cut letters or letter stickers on nicely either, I think I'm cock-eyed. I took some photos of the card before it was even finished since it took forever to get my son to sign it, but then I was thinking it looked kind of messed up to post. I guess I should have shown Eva how the card unfolds, but it was hastily shoved into an envelope, which by the way I made with the Martha Stewart scoreboard since I hadn't heard of it until Eva told me about it, and then when Michael's had a 50% off coupon, I figured that was a pretty good deal. But we didn't even address the envelope or seal it...I'm such a bad card giver. Although I was pretty happy I even finished it in time since it took me a couple days to decorate it. And by the last page, the best I could do was letter stickers.

Anyhow, it's called a "neverending" card and I saw it here. So I went to the youtube link here, which shows how to make the card and how it keeps folding/unfolding. Except they gave the measurements in metric units, so I just picked 6 inches by 6 inches with 1.5 inches for the score lines.

So the 3rd and 4th pages look like this if you flip the 2 and the birthday cake up/down, then open the green panels horizontally...


I mostly used Doodlebug products that I've been hoarding...the patterned paper, matching sticker sheet and a glitter letter set. Plus a birthday stamp set for the "happy" word background.
I am so bad about actually getting crafting stuff done, takes me forever just to make 1 thing...hopefully I can make something soon with "I love Stamps" Anya, thanks Eva!

no BUTTS about it

Hello!  Today I have a series of cards to share which I think are super cute and funny too.  I love Birdie Brown's stamp sets available at MFT and the cards today uses the behind images of the cat, dog & pig found in Cool Cat, Lucky Dog and Hog Heaven. 

I had a couple of ideas for the design of this card but I felt the sentiment called for multiple images of the animal's behind.  I just couldn't let there be one image and the sentiment have plural Butts.  I know that is weird of me but things like that drive me a little crazy.  I won't get into how people misuse plural and possessive s though.  That really drives me crazy.  Anyway, so then I thought this would be a cute way to stamp multiple images over the card.  I created the sentiment on the front using an alphabet set from Lawn Fawn.

This is the sentiment on the inside which comes in the Cool Cat stamp set.

Here is the dog version.  These cards took a lot of time to color!

Knuffle Bunny

Hi!  The Greeting Farm had their Customer Challenge & Chit Chat Night "A Night at the Bookstore" and introduced a few challenges.  I have to say chatting was too fast for me and I couldn't really keep up.  It was still early here, and I had to pick up the kids from school and activities and make dinner and eat and so I guess the timing didn't really work out with our schedule. You can check out the challenge details on the SCS forum HERE.  I made this card for Favorite Child's Book category.  It is based on the Mo Willems book Knuffle Bunny.  It's one of my kids' favorites and it's such a cute story.  We actually love reading Mo Willems' books especially his Elephant and Piggie series.  Those books are hilarious!  This challenge also made me realize that I haven't read many books recently except kids' books.  I used to love reading but just haven't given it much time lately.  Anyway, here is my card.

If you've read the story, yo…

lots and lots of tags!

Hi!  I've been making a lot of tags lately trying to get ready for Christmas and I am finally done.

These were made with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.  I love this set.  It is so cute and funny!

Here is the back of the tags.  I think these would be so fun to put on gifts for children.  They would think the tags are so funny!

Here are the polar bear tags.  I love this polar bear.  His expression is so cute!

This is the back of the polar bears.

I also made more of the tags I had made last year.  So these are all listed in my shop now.  I tried to make a lot at one time because I'm not sure if I'll be making more of these designs this year.  I want to make some newer ones with some of my dies that I have not used yet!  Trying so hard to not buy more than I can use.  Although sometimes that is so difficult!  I was really good in September and did not buy any new Mama Elephant or the cute Bitty Bears from Birdie Brown.  I had such restraint but who knows how long that will last t…
