Pink ribbon

Hi!  I saw that TGF was one of the sponsors for Splitcoast Stampers Hope you can cling to challenges.  They have a whole bunch of challenges listed and will be adding more to benefit breast cancer patients at MD Anderson Cancer Center.  You can read all the details on their forum.  One of the challenges listed is hosted by Beate and is called Encircled with Love (make a circle card).

I knew I wanted to make a card with TGF's Fancy Anya because of the way her hands are apart enough to place a small ribbon between them.  I used my lacey circle nestabilities and tried to just keep it simple and it's blank so the recipient can use it for whatever kind of card they wish to.

Still practicing my pencil coloring using just my kids' pencils.  I also wanted to try the no lines look that I first saw on Carisa's blog.  You can see it HERE.  She did hers with Copics but I'm too chicken to try it with pens so thought I'd ease into it with pencils.  Though I think I shouldn't have outlined her hair so much.  Will try this again though.  I didn't have a really light ink pad so I just used my usual Memento's rich cocoa and stamped it twice to get a lighter shade of brown.  Then started coloring her in with pencils. 

Okay, I really have to start cleaning the house now.  I've procrastinated long enough.

Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!

Hi Eva, Great idea having her hold the ribbon. Oh and the pencil coloring is terrific! Now I'm gonna attack kid's coloring pencils. I love the soft look it gives.
Great job Eva -
Love the simplicity of your round card, the embossing pops it out and great idea with the pencil coloring..... Nothing wrong with using them, it looks fantastic.....

This is beautiful and touching! Love the simple design. What did you think of the stamping with no black lines? It was hard for me. I use Copics but for the facial features, I think I need something softer to draw them in with like color pencils.

Looks like you're having so much fun crafting! This looks beautiful - love the pencil coloring (my pencils are still sitting somewhere unused, haha) and the no lines technique!

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…

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!
