TGF Heart Journal--week 15

Hi!  Wow, it's week 15 of TGF's Heart Journaling!  This is the closest I've come to missing the deadline.  I don't know how the days go by so quickly but because school was done earlier and I got sick over the weekend and my daughter is sick too now, I didn't have much time to craft.  Plus it was Halloween too!  I actually had to think what I wanted to create while driving my kids around to school and other activities.  Finally, I had a few minutes to sit down and finish the page.  Good thing the theme for this week is to use a little or a lot of sticky.  So I thought of using stickers and it was quick to stick them onto the page instead of using glue.

Sorry, photo may look kind of dark.  Anyway, this is my tribute to Sanrio and Morning Glory's Blue Bear.  I used my daughter's stash of cute stickers.  The border is My Melody washi tape which I have in 2 other colors as well and cost a small fortune but it's so cute!  My nihongo is a bit rusty so hopefully kawaii is spelled correctly in hiragana.  I found these cute hiragana stamps and thought I could use those to spell arigatoo or something for my kids' Japanese language teachers.  I did end up asking my daughter to double check my hiragana.  She's been taking Japanese since kindergarten now and has learned all of the hiragana chart and working her way through katakana now. 

Thanks for reading and hopefully I'll be able to post more regularly once Lego Robotics is done.  Just another week or so left!

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!

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…

Papertrey November Blog Hop Challenge

Hi!  It's been a while since I participated in one of PTI's blog hop challenges.  But I had to play along this month.  Not only did I place an order on release night but I also got my goodies in about a week!  So I had some time to play around with my new stamps and dies.  Hehe.  Below is the inspiration photo.

I love the Christmas theme and the colors too so I went with that.

When I saw the newly released penguin stamp and die, I had to get them.  So cute!!  I thought this penguin would make a cute spinner card too.  Similar to the froggy one I made HERE.  I also used PTI's In the Meadow dies.  I used the die itself and my hobby blade to cut along the curved edge to create the little cut out for the penguin to slide.  I did that twice leaving a quarter inch space between them.

I layered the penguin with PTI's coasters.

I added a tiny bell to his hat.

He slides down.  The jingle all the way sentiment is from Tiny Treats Xmas.  Just traced the space with a pencil and curv…
