TGF 3rd Annual Customer Blog Hop

Hi!  After finishing up these 2 projects for TGF's Blog Hop, I've come to realize that I am kind of addicted to stamps, especially TGF stamps.  Hehe.  Okay, I will not babble on too much since there are lots of other blogs to check out as well.  I made something for both categories, Holiday and General.

First up is my Holiday card.

I recently acquired Hippie Anya!  She inspired me to make a "peace" card for the holidays.

But then I had to add Fleur Anya for "love" ...

and 80s Anya for "joy."  So great that these stamps could be turned into something Christmas-y.

My General project has been swimming in my mind ever since I made that counting book a while back with TGF stamps as well.  I thought I could make an ABC book too.  But I didn't make this into a book.  More like flashcards, I suppose.  My youngest has a hard time recognizing lower case letters so I thought this would be fun for him. 

All stamps are TGF.  I colored in just the part I wanted to emphasize.  I know, I have a lot of stamps! 

Some letters were hard.  Like "n."  I don't have Nurse Anya!  So I used Amelia's necklace.  V is for valentine, X for Xmas, and I turned the horse from McSplendid Farm into a zebra.  Though my kids will say it's a horse with stripes.  I'm also glad I had Sing for her ukulele, and Princess Anya is a queen.

I added all the cards onto a ring and also added a piece of clear cardstock to use with a dry erase marker.

I thought maybe my youngest could practice writing the letters too on the clear cardstock and then erase it.  (The blue one was out of ink).  The letters were cut out using PTI's alphabet dies.

That's it for me.  Thanks so much for visiting!
