a bright thank you

Hi!  There are so many fun challenges to participate in!  I'm trying to do as much as I can before I get onto some end of the school year stuff.  I'm thinking of making pinwheels attached to pencils but maybe that is too time consuming.  I have just about a week left. 

After making my previous bright card, I saw that Some Odd Girl is having a BRIGHT challenge!  And it'll be on Facebook too.  So I printed out Bookish Tia and had fun coloring her up.  Yeah, I bought her cause of her glasses and her books.  Totally reminds me of my daughter.  Even my daughter thought Bookish Tia was a lot like her so she wants to give this card to her school's librarian. 

I kept the papers (from Doodlebug) pretty simple.  I added some cork borders (PTI die) and used my felt too which I haven't used in quite a while.

The little tag, cork star and circular embellishments are all dies from PTI.  The sentiment is from PTI's Tiny Tags stamp set.

That is it for me!  Thanks so much for reading!

Lovely BRIGHT card! So spring-y too. Wow, you're still going to make end of year gifts? The best I can do is send my older one in with snacks, only because the teacher requested it too! I wonder if I can manage to make a card for the teacher even.

Awesome bright colours Eva! What a great card! Bookish Tia is adorable and I'm thinking this will be the perfect card for the librarian!

Thanks so much for playing along in our Bright Colours Facebook challenge at SOG!

She is tooooo cute! I love your use of bright colors! I can't wait to get mine colored up today. (laid out everything I want to use, last night!) I may have to get her soon!

I hear ya on the end of the school year stuff. I'm trying to think of all the things I like to do without the girls, and get them done before next friday! (so mean, I know.) Nothing beats going to the movies in the middle of a week-day, with nobody there, and your popcorn all to yourself! he he
Wow very pretty Eva! She is done with perfection. love it....

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!

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…

I wheelie like you!

Hello!  I started making some Valentine's Day cards for my shop.  I love Lawn Fawn stamps and their punny sayings!  So I used a bunch of their stamps recently.  And I totally thought I would be good and not get anything from their new release but those dies!  I want the Fancy Box and the Scalloped Box Card Pop up! 

Here is one of the cards I've made recently using Lawn Fawn's Wheelie Like You set.  I had to do some selective stamping to stamp the Wheelie three times and in red.  I use a small post it and cover up the words I do not want to be inked up.  Then I remove the post its and stamp only the word I want.

Here's a close up.  I fussy cut the little guinea pig out and adhered him onto the wheel.  Wait, he is a guinea pig, right?  Could he also be a hamster?

Well, hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.  We had an incredible day of traffic yesterday!  My husband and daughter were stuck on the road for about 5 hours.  If you live on Oahu, you know what I'm talking a…
