best friends too

Hi!  I've made another best friends card.  This time it is for Tiddly Inks Challenge -- Best Friends Forever.  Have you seen the new Wryn & Emmy digi?  So cute! 

Remember my whatcha doin? card?  See HERE.  For this card, I decided to give Wryn a best friend neighbor.

Wouldn't that be the best if your best friend lived next door to you?  And she also was a stay at home mom like you and wanted to craft all day while the kids were at school and you could share crafting stuff together?  It'd be like a dream!  I'm sure no chores or errands would be completed if this were the case for me.

So this digi is called Whatcha doing?  Cute!  I cut out her fingers to overlap the window frame.  The flowers were given to me by Jenny from Sister Stamps when I won some candy recently.  Aren't they super cute?  The word bubble and sentiment is from MFT's Say What die/stamp set.

Here is Wryn Whatcha Doin'?  I printed the images slightly larger than my previous card so I had to make the windows a bit larger which turned this card into a larger card.  I folded an 8.5 x 11 inch cardstock in half to accommodate both girls and their windows/homes.

Anyway, when I was in elementary school my best friend was my neighbor.  We lived in an apartment building and she lived 2 floors below me.  She'd come over or I'd go over there and it was so fun!  We'd walk home together and go to 7-11 for some snacks after school.   But she moved away to Texas in the 6th grade.  I think her father was in the military.  We were pretty faithful pen pals for a long time and she even came back to visit when we were a little older but we lost touch after that.  I wonder what she does now. 

Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!

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…

August 2012

Hi!  We had a short black out this morning and I didn't know what to do without my computer and internet, and I couldn't go blog surfing.  I was sad but I did cut everything out for my kids' Halloween goody bags.  Good thing my Big Shot isn't electric. 

Anyway, I made another page to my 2012 calendar/scrapbook using MFT's sketch #39 and Pure Innocence Year of Flowers series Poppy.

Here's my page.  Somehow I'm not loving this one too much.  I love the image but somehow the colors remind me of fall too much and not too summery.  And I think the proportions are a bit off.  But I decided to just stick with it.  It's still cute.

Here's a picture of both pages.

I'm gonna have to wait til I order the next couple months to continue.  But I'm happy I've made it this far!

The kiddies are home for fall break.  It's nice but messy and noisy.  It may be a long week.

Thanks for reading!

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!
