all my heart

Hi!  Hmm, ever feel kind of uninspired?  Or maybe too overwhelmed to create?  Sometimes there are so many cute stamps I want to color up or so many fun challenges I want to participate in that I can't get myself to pick one and get started.  I knew I wanted to participate in Anyone for Anya's Girly Girl Challenge and to use the current TGF sketch 13 at SCS but I don't know if I absolutely love what I created.  Oh well.

I decided to use TGF's Daisy since I hadn't even trimmed her yet.  I know, I still have a few more to use that are still untrimmed.  I do love how bright-eyed she is.  Oh, and while I was coloring her, I thought her hair reminded me of Kate from Jon & Kate Plus 8.  You know, it's all flat in the front but really poofed up in the back.  I was really sad when they got a divorce.  I mean, poor babies!  Anyway, I slapped on some flowers and heart rhinestones I picked up from Walmart.  They had lots of different shaped/colored ones so I picked up a few.  It's too hard to decide which one NOT to buy so I buy at least one of every style.  Hehe.

Yeah, I like her, she's a cutie.  You know what other show I'm kind of addicted to?  Long Island Medium.  It's so fascinating.  I mean, wow, how does she know all that stuff and to communicate with the dead?  Kind of creepy but neat at the same time.  Plus she has a really likable personality, I think.

Anyway, I don't think I talked much about crafting in this post.  Haha.  But thanks for reading anyway!

Cute card for feeling uninspired! Nice coloring of Daisy! Love all the flowers. I think I'm not even motivated to make anything if I don't have a specific occasion in mind. I keep missing my TV shows, I always have to watch them online, was Revenge on last night?

Haaaa Ha! Totally Kate! And you totally rocked her hair, it looks fab! (at least she doesn't have a bad dye job!) I am really in love with this card! I just used these colors last night too on a Wryn, you'll see it later.

I've caught a few of those shows, I love that kind of stuff, so fascinating! I also was completely dumb-founded watching the new reality show about Gypsy weddings, what the???? Crazy people out there!

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…
