rainbow hearts

Hi!  Feels like a while since I made anything.  I've been taking a break from crafting and went on a field trip with my son and his class.  I even got my haircut and did a bit of window shopping yesterday at the mall.  I finally finished up a card last night for Tiddly Inks photo inspiration challenge (with a subtle 2).  You can click on the link to see the photo.  Rainbow colors!  That's what I went with.

I chose Heartfelt Love cause I love Wryn and those hanging hearts!  Colored the hearts in rainbow colors and yes, I have to admit I forgot about the subtle 2 part til the end and thought darn it, what about subtle 3?  Like 3 hearts and 3 rhinestones?  Okay, so I had just tied the twine on so I just looped it around again for the 2.  And there are also the 2 rows of polka dots around the image.  I also rounded the bottom corners of this card.

I knew I wanted to color the hearts all rainbow-y so I started looking for a sentiment or a quote about rainbows and hearts and found the one above that I printed out too.  There is a second line to the quote as well -- You know you're a part of that colorful, magical, feeling you'll find, when you have a rainbow inside.  But I opted to leave that part out cause I didn't quite get it.  Anyway, it was an anonymous quote that I thought fit in nicely with the image.  The quote can be found HERE.

This was a nice and simple card for me.  Kind of relaxing to just color, add a few embellishments and be done.  Thanks for reading!


Awesome Eva - love the colors of the rainbow... What a pretty card...And thanks for the link of the sentiment... This will come in handy....
Have a crafty weekend...

Fun pastel rainbow colors! I forgot all about the 2, too! Love the bling at the top of the string on the hearts, cute touch!

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!
