Make a Wish

Hello.  I finally got around to making a card because yes, another birthday is coming up soon, plus Eva had to tell me about that Tiddly Inks sale!

So this is one of those cards that actually took me forever to put together and it still looks a little odd.  Maybe I'm out of practice since I haven't made anything in so long.  Anyhow, I didn't want to waste paper so I just left it like this.  Hopefully the recipient won't care, it's the birthday thought that counts, right?

First I printed out the image a little too big so this is actually a 5x7 card.  I thought it might be easier to color (and stay in the lines) if it was larger.  I realize I'm kind of a messy colorer.  Luckily I could erase the stray colored pencil marks.  Not so lucky with the heart flowers since I used a Bic marker and some RV Copics!  I actually got the 3 Copics in the RV family from Michaels when they had a 50% off coupon.  Was that bad of me to take my son and give him a coupon too so I could buy 2 Copics at a time, since it was only 1 coupon per customer?  Anyhow, coloring the dress messed me up, but I didn't want to toss it since I already spent so much time coloring the face and hair.  Then I had to look for a sketch, luckily I found the March Sketch For You to Try that seemed to fit.  I was trying to find a way to fit the cute heart flower border that came with the digi, but oh well.  Ended up stamping and white embossing the PTI background basics hearts since I couldn't find matching patterned paper.  Maybe I should have gotten the new monochromatic patterned paper packs.  Going with the heart theme, used the PTI Tag-its (plus I saw it just sitting there in the front of the box since I just used it for making school valentines).  Also used PTI cardstock in Raspberry Fizz and Plum Pudding, and the light pink is Bazzill.  Photo corner is a Martha Stewart punch.

OK, that's about it for me...for probably a while...I should actually be brain doesn't seem to function so well in study mode anymore...takes me 10 times as long to read stuff nowadays...


This is soooo cute Cheryl....

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!

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…
