And another thank you card

Grrr, it takes me forever to write a post sometimes because I accidentally deleted a photo while I was typing and then when I uploaded it again, it was in the wrong order so I had to do it all over again! And then I couldn't finish typing until my quiet time now. Anyhow, enough of my computer woes. (So weird, I don't usually say "woe" but I had to listen to my son read about a doe, her foe Farmer Joe, his hoe, stubbed his toe, tomatoes - who knew so many words ended in -oe)

Here's another card using a CC Designs stamp (so cute, thanks, Eva!). Her name is either Honey or August, I'm not quite sure. I love her knee high socks. I guess I should mention this thank you card is now supposed to be from my daughter as was the bunny card. I made the boy ones for my son to write in. I think I should start now so by the end of the year I will have Christmas, birthday and thank you cards all ready.

The patterned paper is from a Cosmo Cricket pack, I think it's an old design, but new to me, I just got it not too long ago at Hobby Lobby. But it matches the PTI cardstock pretty well.

Again, I inked the edges of the patterned paper. I placed Honey/August off to the side so the label and sentiment could fit. Unfortunately I should have stuck the label down first, because now Honey/August looks a little too far to the left. The "thank you" is from Stampin Up.

The butterfly die cut came in the paper pack. Then I just added the gem. It was kind of an afterthought. I'm not so much of an embellisher. I should try to take notes more often when I come across a cute card, I can never remember what other people do when I'm trying to actually make my own card.
Anyhow, I think that will be it for me this week, hopefully I will have time to make something again this weekend. Bye!

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!

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…
