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!

Snowman gift card holder

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

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.
