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!

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…

I wheelie like you!

Hello!  I started making some Valentine's Day cards for my shop.  I love Lawn Fawn stamps and their punny sayings!  So I used a bunch of their stamps recently.  And I totally thought I would be good and not get anything from their new release but those dies!  I want the Fancy Box and the Scalloped Box Card Pop up! 

Here is one of the cards I've made recently using Lawn Fawn's Wheelie Like You set.  I had to do some selective stamping to stamp the Wheelie three times and in red.  I use a small post it and cover up the words I do not want to be inked up.  Then I remove the post its and stamp only the word I want.

Here's a close up.  I fussy cut the little guinea pig out and adhered him onto the wheel.  Wait, he is a guinea pig, right?  Could he also be a hamster?

Well, hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.  We had an incredible day of traffic yesterday!  My husband and daughter were stuck on the road for about 5 hours.  If you live on Oahu, you know what I'm talking a…
