Woo hoo, it's a record 2 posts for me so far this week and it's only Wednesday! I don't think it's going to happen again anytime soon though. But I actually made a second birthday card!I figured I better get to using all the new stamps that I ordered. This one is from the Amazing Duo set from The Greeting Farm. I actually colored this one first, which is when I realized that I have to color the skin before the hair otherwise I'll smudge black onto the face! I don't know why his superhero outfit is so colorful...I was trying to find pencils that matched all the little circles and then ended up using every color! The birthday paper and matching cardstock is from a birthday paper pack from Die Cuts with a View from I don't know how long ago. The number is from the Sizzix font set Round-a-bout, it has actually come in handy a few times. I'm not sure where I got the ribbon from...I'm such a collector, it might have come off some packaging of something else that I bought, but it seemed to match pretty well so I'm glad I saved it! Again I did the sticking things down before getting all the pieces together, so after I already made a hole for the "you're super" tag, I had to figure out the best place for the"5," which makes it feel kind of like reading backwards now.
Hi! I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences. It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts. I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one. It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch. The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card. I added this fun card that I stamped. You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks. I hope I can make more of these little guys. These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as
