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....

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!
