Love ...

Hi!  Today's a new day.  I realize that I am not only a stress eater but a stress cleaner!  I finished off the chocolate covered almonds from Costco (I shared some too!) and managed to clean all our bedrooms, sheets, fans, carpets and did all the laundry too.  But I had to stop vacuuming because our vacuum just shuts off by itself.  It's been doing that everyday.  I vacuum a room and then it shuts off by itself!  Frustrating.  We need a new one.

Well, I did manage to finish a card!  TGF is now having sketch challenges over at SCS!

I chose to use TGF's Flutter Anya.  I haven't used this stamp very much so thought I'd give her some attention.  I've been trying to use stamps that I haven't even inked up yet before buying even more stamps.  My hubby said this card looked very busy.  I guess he is a clean and simple kind of card guy but sometimes I like to really embellish my cards.

I chose to color her in varying shades of red for iCopic's weekly challenge #67 -- red love.  I added some glitter to her wings.  I actually used some of my son's glitter glue and stickles.  There's some glossy accents on the hearts on her wings.  I added a love charm and a heart die cut from PTI's tiny tags.  The butterflies are from Martha Stewart and the leaves are also from PTI.

I'll also be entering this into Flutter By Wednesday challenge #188.

Thanks for reading!

Cute!!! This was one of the first TGF stamps I bought, I still like her a lot! Love her red outfit! Cute white accents! Nice take on the sketch. Cute embellishments! I think I need to use more of mine, now I'm accumulating way too many, I will use your stickpins one of these days... Wow, you cleaned a lot. I think I can only clean in small doses.

We must be on the same wave-length. I vacuumed, mopped, washed all throw rugs, baked, and sorted all my pics so I can get caught up on my scrapbooking. And yes, I too had a little too much chocolate today.

That being said, I can't believe you had time to do this fantastic card!! I think it's just perfect. I stopped asking my hubby his opinion, and now I only ask my 7 year old. ;) I love the paper too, just bought some myself a few weeks ago.

We're over half way through the week!!!
I was the opposite of you, while you did the indoors I did the outdoors - which was mowing the lawn, racking and pruning... Thursday is my day to do the indoors chores....
BTW love your Anya card, I have those bg papers too.....pretty flowers and teeny butterflies....

So adorable, Eva! And i love the spray of flowers & butterflies! Too busy? I don't think men are comfortable with different patterns, lol! Your card is perfect!

Fabulous card. The use of the Stickles and your son's glitter glue (I had to giggle at that one)are so perfect and that flower spray is divine! Thank you so much for joining us at iCopic Lovers this week. :)

Just gorgeous! Yay for doing something different and using up your embellies! Love that you used your son's art supplies - Flutter Anya came out wonderfully! Wish I was a stress cleaner 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!

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…
