Boho Anya & 80s music

Hi!  Geez, I don't know what to title this post!  So let's go with the cute TGF stamp that I used and my current obsession of listening to fun 80s music.  Such memories every time I'm driving and an 80s song pops on the radio.  The other day I heard Exposé's Come Go With Me and had to watch it on You Tube too.  If you want to refresh your memory too, here's the video.

Wasn't that fun?  Anyway, here's a little card I made for TGF's Monday Fun-Day #22 Anything Goes.  I don't remember TGF doing an Anything Goes challenge before.  Have they?  And I used the Deconstructed Sketch #41.

I have to stop taking photos of my projects/cards at night.  They look so much better with natural light during the day which is when I took these photos.  And I finally found a way to take photos so I don't have to lie down on my stomach and take them on the floor.  I don't know why I just didn't grab a chair before!  Here's the cute Boho Anya!  I used a paper pack from Wild Rose Studio that I've had for a while.  I really am trying to use what I have. 

A little close up to show her bling in the flowers.  She really is so sweet looking.

Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!

Wow, was that 80's hair crazy or what, too funny. I don't even remember the video, maybe we didn't have cable yet. Cute card! Pretty color combo, I like the way you colored her outfit. I just bought that paper pack not too long ago, it was on clearance though - is it very old?
Awww she is so cute, love all the colours and the matchy papers....
Great colour/combo.... Don't you love doing a mixture of images.... I think we could become an awesome team player.. LOL!!!
Have a super weekend, and keep crafting....
Gorgeous card Eva and the sketch is great.

My 7 year old, Maddie, has been so sick this week with strep, and then last night she got sick with the stomach flu! Poor kid. Needless to say, I haven't been able to make anything, and I'm going through withdrawls!!!

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!

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…

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…
