TGF Heart Journaling--week 11

Hi!  Yes, I have another post!  I know, it's kind of a lot but I have to post before the deadlines.  It's week 11 for TGF's Heart Journaling.  This week's theme is Bloom & Grow.  I thought of doing flowers but then found this quote online by Robert Browning about growing old together and of course I thought TGF's Grandparents set would be perfect.

Aren't they so super cute?  I want to be a sweet grandma like that.  I also used TGF's My House set for the homes in the background.

I used my kids' colored pencils to color them in.  I kind of like the pencil look and seems easier to shade than with Copics though I'll have to work on the skin tone. 

While I was working on this, it reminded me of my embarrassing moment of the week.  I was at my daughter's friend's house and I saw his parents' wedding picture.  It was dated 1991 and for some strange reason that I still don't really know, I thought my husband and I were married in 1991 also.  So of course I told the mom, oh we were married then too.  So she said wow, 20 years too?  Then I thought really, 20 years?  Hmmm, how come we didn't celebrate that?  So I go home and I ask my hubby, have we been married 20 years?  He's all quiet and then is like we didn't know each other 20 years ago.  Oh because 1991 is when I graduated from high school!  Not got married!  Okay, you can all try to calculate how old I am now.  Of course I had to clarify this to the other mom and so embarrassing that my brain had temporarily stopped working.

Thanks for reading!

Wow, I'm just impressed you have a kid the same age as somebody who's been married 20 years, unless they got married when they were 18... But cute page, you and the hubby in 50 years or so...

Oh, and nice pencil coloring! I think pencils are easier too, although I never colored with markers before.

This is so cute - love that old couple. I've still got to practice with my pencils (keep putting it off, lol). And LOL - sounds like you had a senior moment there - but you're too young for that yet, haha!

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!

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…
