Hello Blush Bonnie

Hi!  TGF's Friday Spy Day #24 is casing Rachel's awesome card so I had to play along.  I went with the general layout of Rachel's card.

I used TGF's Blush Bonnie who has been neglected for a while.  I forget that she is smaller than the usual TGF stamps.  She is lots of fun to color up.  I added some stick pins I've had for awhile.  I always think the recipient might poke their fingers so I thought this was a good layout to hide the sharp points. 

I also got to play around with my new heat gun.  Hehe.  I bought the Tim Holtz hair dryer looking one from J's Knicknacks.  If you live around here, it's one of the best places to shop for stamps and other fun goodies.  He has awesome sales and discounts!  Anyway, I haven't heat embossed since I was in college, maybe?  A long time ago.  And back then I used to really just use my hair dryer!  It really is fun to heat emboss and not as messy as I feared thanks to plastic containers.  I used TGF's Blush Hello for the embossed background and the smaller circle in the front as well.

Tomorrow is TGF's Farmer's Market!  Can't wait to see what is gonna be on sale!  I think I can squeeze in a few more stamps in my plastic containers.  One day, I'll photograph all my TGF stamps to share with you.  It may give my hubby a heart attack.  Haha. 

Thanks for reading!

She's a sweetie and you have colored her beautifully, Eva! Love the heat embossing too - can't believe you didn't heat emboss since College, lol. and my hairdryer can't do it - it doesn't get near as hot as the heat tools do. Oh and come enter your name in mr. linky for my giveaway!

This is beautiful!! I hope you submit it to the Flutterby Wednesday challenge this week. It's an open challenge and your card definitely fits the rules.
I met both J and his wife Cheryl at CHA, they are both really nice people. Lucky you live so close that you can pop in and shop.
Love your card!
When you post a picture of your TGF stamps I'll do the same. hahaha, we can see who has the most. lol..

Oh no, no, no, never lay it all out for the hubby to see! They don't understand that enough is NEVER enough! he he

Cute Blush! I haven't gotten one of those girls yet, but now you made her look so darn cute!!!

FYI- I've seen people use earring backs on the ends of the pins so you don't get poked! I had some clear rubber ones that were a little loose, but I just put some clear Elmers on the end and it worked out pretty good!

So pretty! The embossing looks nice! Lovely inking! Reminds me that I need to use the pins you gave me... good tips by Rachel for the pointy ends, I need to try that at some point.

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…
