TGF Heart Journaling--week 20

Hi!  It's week 20 now of TGF's Heart Journaling.  The assignment is to create a page based on a dream, goal or wish.  I created a page based on my son's dream of a white Christmas.  He has been telling me a lot lately that he wants to see snow and build a snowman so hopefully one year we will go on vacation to do just that.  Though I don't know if I would really enjoy the freezing weather.  We're too spoiled here with nice weather all year long.

I used PTI's tree die and cut some fun foam with it.  I used the fun foam tree like a stamp and stamped a bunch of trees together.  I really like how the trees turned out.  I added some flower soft for the snow on the trees and added some stickles too.  The rest are stickers from Echo Park's Everybody Loves Christmas set.  I think this scene fits perfectly with what my son would like to see one day. 

Wow, I can't believe I've been keeping up with this journal!  It seems the days are going by super fast.  I can't keep up with all the activities!  It doesn't help too that I can't seem to stay awake past 11 anymore.  I just need to sleep. 

Thanks for reading!

Wowwowow! Love your scene especially the trees and snow! Very creative! I'm sad that my kiddies may not see snow this Holiday season either!

PS. You can always go on vacay where it's not super cold but still see and play with snow. We've been going to the Lake Tahoe area, border of CA and Nevada. They have ski lodges too!

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…
