Happy Mother's Day, BFF!

Hi!  Happy Mother's Day!  I am trying really hard to do as little as possible, not just tomorrow but the whole weekend.  I even got my hubby to wash the dishes last night by giving him a major guilt trip and I went to bed at 9:30.  Haha!  I spent most of today working on a Mother's Day card for my co-blogger BFF.  We've known each other a long time, over 20 years now!

So, I Copic colored Tiddly Inks Wryn and Emmy.  Aren't they cute?!  Guess which one is Cheryl?  Her complexion is pretty fair so she's Emmy and I'm Wryn.  Haha!  I tried to color Emmy's skin lighter than Wryn and I think I like that skin tone combo.  I also used my Perfect Layers rulers to mat the image in pink and then a little bit wider in green.

The sentiments and the tiny tags are from PTI.  I added a whole bunch of flowers and pearls and a bit of twine.  I intentionally colored their shoes in the same colors.  Cheryl and I used to shop a lot together and we'd buy similar if not the exact same things.  I remember we bought the same kind of shoes!  They were really high and cute.  Gosh, I don't wear stuff like that anymore.  

I'll be entering this in Tiddly Inks Challenge #86 -- Mom or Feminine card and Ribbon Carousel 52 -- Word to Your Mother.

And before I end this post, I wanted to share what my middle one gave to me the other day.

He's such a sweet little boy, always trying to cheer me up! 

Hope you're enjoying this Mother's Day weekend!  Thanks for reading!

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!
