Let's Hang

Hi!  It's been a pretty productive day so far.  Actually did some cleaning which I really don't like to do but I felt a little guilty ever since I read an article saying homemakers probably would get about $90,000 annually if they got paid.  And that is the low end estimate.  So I thought, geez, I don't think I do that much.  I do spend a lot of time just vegging out too when the kids are at school.  But today, I cleaned and swept and got all dusty.  Yucks!  Then afterwards, I got to finish my card.  Yay!

So I'm playing along with TGF's Friday Spy-Day #16 and Anyone for Anya's Bling it On

Yesterday, I got some new Copics from iCopic.  It was my first time ordering from them and I'm so happy with how fast my order came.  I ordered on Friday and it arrived on Monday!  So last night I wanted to try out some of my new colors so I stamped TGF's Abbey and colored her bright and fun.  I think I could still use some more Copics!  Hehe.

I added some stickles to her hair, bow, belt buckle, and shoes.  Then added rhinestones randomly around the card and on her bow. 

That's it for now.  Thanks for reading!

Wow, you have been productive! Love the bright colors on Abbey! Nice coloring! Cute papers and hearts! Wish you could clean my house too! I think that's part of the reason I keep working too, to have an excuse for my poor home making skills...

She is flippin' AWESOME! I love her eyes, espcially! The whole card is really great! I'm saving my cleaning day for Thursday, even though I do a fair amount everyday. I'm a bit OCD, so sometimes I just have to let it go for a few days. It's so much more fun to color!!!

Hi Eva,
Gee, I sure wouldn't mind getting paid $90K / year for housecleaning. :-) I sure love this card and her hot pink hair.
Love that punk rock look of this TGF image... Cool pink hair and great layout...This is a super cool card.
Yippee on the housecleaning ($$$) are you kidding - no ways...
Have a great Wednesday Eva.....

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!

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…

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…
