My First Some Odd Girl Stamp!

Hi!  I really couldn't resist any longer and got my first Some Odd Girl clear stamp.  I really had to to stop myself from buying them all and tell myself to buy in moderation.  Hahaha.  My order came so nicely packed in a white bag wrapped with twine and there was a piece of cardboard in it to keep it from getting all smashed.  Well, I really loved how it came and the twine and the cardboard were too pretty to throw away so I decided to make another book!  But this time for me.  And the current challenge at Some Odd Girl is to Lift an Odd Girl.  So I looked through all the DT's sites for some inspiration and it was hard to choose!  In the end I had to go with Robin Mck's card.

I'll show the back first.  I used the cardboard piece for the back of my book for stability. 

This is the cover.  The stamp is called Smell the Flowers Tia.  I wrapped the blue twine around the front over the lace.  I love that blue color!  Clouds are from PTI.

Closer pic.  Tia's dress, shoes, arm, hair clip, and flowers are all paper pieced.  I really like paper piecing sometimes but I think I'm gonna need to buy some smaller scissors.

Thanks for reading and hope you had a great weekend!

This is an adorable book, Eva! I love the colors, papers and your beautiful coloring of that sweet some odd girl image! I've been into paper piecing quite a bit lately - like coloring, it tends to help relax me sometimes (mindless cutting, lol).

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!

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.

If you've read the story, yo…

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…
