Just because

Hi!  I made a card to enter into a couple of challenges--Lily Pad Cards and the first challenge over at Young Crafters Unite!  It's the first time I'm entering their challenges. 

So YCU's first challenge is to color a stamped image.  I used my Copics to color in my image.  It's a month long challenge so still lots of time to enter.

Lily Pad Cards has a sketch challenge sponsored by The Greeting Farm so I had to participate since I love TGF stamps.

My card features TGF's Blush Babette.  I love her long, flowy hair.  Though if I had hair like that I'd probably wanna chop it off.  I haven't had long hair since I had my daughter and sometimes I miss it but I don't have the patience to grow it out.  The sentiment comes with the stamp though the banner is from Lawn Fawn.  I also used TGF's Blush Hello for the background on the lacey oval behind Babette.  I love the paper from Authentique.  I kind of splurged and got a whole bunch of papers from them--they are so pretty!  The little swirly die cut is from My Favorite Things.  I spritz that, the flowers and the black corners with some glitter, and added rhinestones.  Babette also has some stickles on her dress.  I like how this card came out and my hubby took such a nice photo of it.

It's back to school tomorrow for the kiddies and I'm wondering what I should do tomorrow.  Finish my 4 loads of laundry, I guess.

Thanks for reading and have a great week!


This is so pretty, Eva! Beautiful coloring, especially on the hair =) Thank you so much for joining our first Young Crafters Unite challenge!

What a pretty card! Beautiful hair! The dress and stockings look fabulous too! Are you sure you didn't take the copic class already? You got lacey ovals too?! The swirl is pretty, love the color combo.

Ooh, gorgeous coloring, Eva! Love the color combo and papers you used, too!
Oh wow, your coloring is so gorgeous! I'm still working on learning how to do hair, so I really enjoy seeing how others do it. Love all the pretty layers and texture... the scalloped oval especially. Thank you for playing along with us at the first Young Crafters Unite challenge!

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…

August 2012

Hi!  We had a short black out this morning and I didn't know what to do without my computer and internet, and I couldn't go blog surfing.  I was sad but I did cut everything out for my kids' Halloween goody bags.  Good thing my Big Shot isn't electric. 

Anyway, I made another page to my 2012 calendar/scrapbook using MFT's sketch #39 and Pure Innocence Year of Flowers series Poppy.

Here's my page.  Somehow I'm not loving this one too much.  I love the image but somehow the colors remind me of fall too much and not too summery.  And I think the proportions are a bit off.  But I decided to just stick with it.  It's still cute.

Here's a picture of both pages.

I'm gonna have to wait til I order the next couple months to continue.  But I'm happy I've made it this far!

The kiddies are home for fall break.  It's nice but messy and noisy.  It may be a long week.

Thanks for reading!

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!
