sweetest wishes

Hi!  I almost thought I wouldn't be able to make a card for TGF's first Monday Funday Challenge to use scallops.  But I found some time tonight though I should've actually been cleaning the house and getting ready for my daughter's Lego robotics team to come over to our house for practice.

Anyway, here is my card.  I stuck with something simple and sweet.  This is TGF's Cuddle Anya.  Isn't she super cute?  Love her and her hat and bear.  I used a scalloped square and actually went around and punched holes to give it that eyelet look.  The background is stamped with Hero Arts canvas.  The tree die cut and sentiment is from PTI.

I thought I'd practice my pencil coloring again.  I used my kids' regular color pencils.  Now I think I need to practice the hair.

Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday! 

Thanks for reading!

Hi Eva, Cuddle Anya is so cute... love the color pencils.I love the idea of using the twine around the scalloped edge.
Hey Eva- indeed this is such a cutie card....
great job on the pencil coloring, I haven't tried this solution yet but I've seen alot of blogger's using them too...Awesome! Like your inter-twine on the scalloped edge, such a great idea...
Have a great crafting weekend!

Cute card! Can't believe you punched all those holes, seems like it would be hard to center them. Very brave, having a bunch of kids running around your house, although hopefully it's not as hectic when they're older.

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.
