❤ You

Hi!  Life is as crazy as ever.  I wanted to post this morning before we took our kids to a local carnival but didn't get a chance to.  At least we still made it to the carnival.  Same yummy food every year especially malasadas and Portuguese bean soup!  The kids had fun on rides and playing games. 

I made a little card for TGF's Monday Funday #18--Key to my heart.  It was inspired by the word card tutorial over at SCS except I ended up not making it exactly like a word card.

I decided not to cut around the letters like in the tutorial and just made this into like an accordion style fold.  I cut out a felt heart for the middle of the O using MFT's heart die.

This image is a combination of TGF's Megan and Birthday Ian.  I wiped away the letters on the banner, paper pieced it and added felt hearts.

Still trying to use all the stamps I've been neglecting.  So far I'm doing well with my no new stamps diet.

Now I'm wondering what I should do with all these cards I'm making.  I know you can donate them and usually I give them to my cousin who gives them to her friends.  I'm thinking about just having my hubby take them to his work place and donate them to his coworkers.  What do you do with all your cards??

Thanks for reading!

This is soooo cute, Eva! I don't even know how you put that banner on her, but it's fantastic! I love the folds and the big letters. Really great job!

I took some of the cards I had left over at the end of the year and put them into a tin as a gift for my mother-in-law. I don't really know what to do with all of mine either, but I can't stop making them! I am actually trying to get caught up on my girls' scrapbooks, and hopefully that will keep my card pile down to a minimum.(probably not.)

Adorable as ever, Eva! Love your coloring and the accordion style! Sounds like you had a blast at the carnival! I use some of my cards or my DH does. The ones really specific to the image are tougher - I usually send some of those to my crafty blog friends who "get it" kwim? LOL.

Another cute card! Cute banner and neat idea with the big YOU. Awww, I miss those malasadas, now that you mention it!

Super cute! Love the accordion card and the colors! I usually run outta cards! But that's because I have tons of co-workers! And I also am in charge for making cards at work - whether it's for a patient or a co-worker w/ a big life event (wedding, new baby, sympathy). I suggest you donate them to a school or a hospital or convalescent home. I also send them to a few bloggy friends I've gotten 'close' to over the years (*ahem*) :).

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…
