with Love ❤

Hi!  I was checking out Shirl's blog one day and saw this cute card she made with a cute digi (Canary Love) by Saturated Canary (Krista Smith).  I had seen the stamps around in blogland but I still have to stick to my no new stamps diet.  But Shirl was kind enough to provide the link to the digi in her post and it was free HERE!  So I thought I'd give it a try using the Deconstructed Sketch #37.


I have to say that it was kind of challenging to color all that hair and even to the tiniest ends.  I must be a slow colorer cause it took me part of last night and most of the morning the next day to finish coloring her.  But I like it!

Well, I know the digi is called Canary Love not Bluebird Love and I had the intention of coloring the bird yellow but somehow grabbed the wrong Copic and well, now I have a Bluebird.  But at least he matches her eye color.  I also added some glossy accents to the heart, rose, buttons and the red around her legs.

I even crocheted a little heart.  See HERE if you want to make one too.  It didn't take long, just about 5 minutes and I'm not that experienced in crocheting.  I didn't know what kind of sentiment to add then noticed the name of the DP I was using.  You know, on 12x12 sheets there is that little perforated part you can tear off and it has the paper line and info on it.  That's what I used.

I'm also entering this in iCopic's Weekly Challenge #68--Hearts and

Ribbon Carousel's Challenge 39--Anything Goes.  I realized too late that Saturated Canary also has their own challenges too!  Must check that out one day.

Thanks so much for reading!

Cute card! Beautiful coloring! Yeah, that hair looks complicated, you did a nice job! The bluebird is cute! There was a sale not too long ago at Saturated Canary too, I was debating about getting an image, but then took me so long to decide, and then I got distracted and forgot.
Eva you are just one fantastic blogging buddie.... love it.....
Now wasn't she fun to be coloured?
You did awesome, like how you did her hair the correct way I was to fussy to go in between the spaces so I coloured as one bunch of hair...LOL! and the blue bird is totally cute.... love the colours you used - oh my you are da bomb....
That crochet heart is just too cute now if that was me it probably would of taken me several hours that is one thing I do not have patience for.. he,he...
Have a super Tuesday....

I just got her too! Isn't she something!? Your coloring is gorgeous, and I think her hair looks fantastic!

I need to crochet a few more hearts and flowers. I usually take a day and just spit out as many as I can in one sitting. It's nice when you can make what you want, when you want!

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…

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!

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…
