Wagon Full of Love

This is a little easel card I made for my daughter.  It's the first time I've used Pure Innocence stamps.  I thought this one was so cute with her little wagon and so perfect for the occasion.  My daughter has been working so hard to participate in her school's Lego Robotics team.  They practice endlessly and she's given up lots of free time and had to give up swimming and participating in this season's tennis league.  But she loves to go to the lego practices.  She almost gave it all up because she was so afraid of public speaking.  They have to make an oral presentation to a small group of judges this Saturday.  She had quit but one of her coaches asked her to reconsider and I'm so happy that she did.  I think she is glad she stuck with it too.  She's practiced so much and in front of so many different people that it's becoming less scary to speak.  I know her team will do well this Saturday and hopefully will make it to the state finals. 

Well, back to the card.  These little animals in the wagon are so stinkin' cute, I can't stand it.

The sentiment is just so perfect.  I used PTI's mat stack die and placed little rhinestones in the corners.

Hopefully, she'll like the card.  I tried to make it as purple as possible since that is her favorite color. 

And I'm so happy there are teachers and coaches like the one who asked my daughter to reconsider.  She was so supportive and understanding of my daughter's fears.  Whether they make it to the finals or not, she and the rest of the team have already learned and accomplished so much. 

Thanks for reading and have a great day!

Your easel cards are so cute! I gotta try one, one of these days. The sky looks good, great idea for covering the white background, I gotta try that someday too. I bought a whole bunch of distress inks from Michael's when I had a 20% off entire purchase coupon over the veteran's day holiday, but haven't had a chance to use them :( Nice drawing of the sidewalk and grass too! Great practicing! Good luck at the Lego competition!

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.

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!

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…
