A Perfect Pear

Hi!  My hubby's aunty has a crafty store called Cute Stuff and indeed, she has a lot of cute stuff in it!  She has started doing monthly challenges too and I finally got a chance to participate this month.  The challenge for July was to make a tag and anything goes as long as it was a tag.  I knew I wanted to keep it fairly simple and use my Lawn Fawn Silly Valentine set.

I used one of PTI's tags and the congrats to is from their All About You set.  The pear couple is paper pieced as well as the red heart (velvet paper).  Tied on a matchy ribbon (from Xmas time) and some twine and then I was done. 

My tag was inspired by this card I had made for a cousin who got married.  The hearts in the background are from Lawn Fawn's Teeny Tiny Backdrops.  And I have to give some credit to my hubby who suggested I place a doily behind the mat (from PTI).  I liked it so I kept it.

My youngest had seen that I made a card and tag set and so he was inspired to make a set too!  I stamped some of the same images for him.

So this is what he created.  He colored, cut and glued them on and was happy he made a wedding card too with a tag!  He always wants to craft when I craft and so I give him lots of my scraps and the images that didn't stamp too well.  Then he wants his work photographed too!  Future blogger.

I will also be entering this set into Wee Memories Challenge #62 -- Clean and Simple

Thanks so much for reading and have a great weekend!

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…
