Believe in Magic

Hi!  Happy Valentine's Day!!

In between all that PTI anniversary fun, I did manage to somehow make something with My Favorite Things sketch above.

I made a little tooth fairy card and box for Cheryl's son.  (Cheryl, try not to look so closely so you can be surprised when you receive it in the mail).  I was looking for a tooth fairy stamp set but couldn't really find any from my favorite stamp companies.  Maybe they should try to make one?  But when I saw this Pure Innocence stamp, I thought she was cute and could be a tooth fairy.

I tried not to pick such girly colors but it's hard to avoid all the cute stuff.

There's a little blue pearl in her wand and some stickles on her wings.  Then I had to stop with all the pretty embellishments or it would be too girly.

I used a tin that used to hold some paper flowers.  It's a pretty good size. 

I used Just Rite Stampers to personalize the box a bit.

Then on the inside, I made a felt pillow.  I stitched an X in the middle with yarn because it was too poofy and the lid didn't close well.  The X made the pillow just a bit skinnier and marks a good place to put his tooth.  But my sewing is a bit messy so don't look too closely.  And the tin is big so you could even fit larger bills in it and not just coins.  What's the going rate for a tooth these days?  We gave my daughter $10 for her first tooth.  A bit crazy, I know but it took so long for her first one to come out.  Now she gets $5 a tooth.  Maybe that's a bit much too?

Thanks for reading and have a great week!

Awwww, soooo cute! Thanks a lot! I'm such a bad mommy, I don't even make a tooth box for my own kid! How long does it take for a tooth to fall out anyhow? It's been 2 weeks and it's still hanging in there! I'm already seeing the dollar signs for braces flashing before my eyes. I might need to call the dentist to just get it removed already, that might require the tooth fairy to shell out some big bucks depending on how much drama will be involved.

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…
