Hi!  I spent the weekend crafting like crazy trying to finish up 3 cards for TGF's Customer Challenge and Chit Chat Night on SCS.  The theme was music and the challenges were to create a project inspired by a favorite song, favorite music video, and a favorite lyric.  So because I don't know how to just pick one and because I love these kinds of challenges, I had to do them all.  Hehe.

First up is one of my current favorite songs.  I've only recently heard it on the radio and didn't know who sang it so I did a search of it on You tube.  It's called Lucky and I was so surprised that it was sang by Jason Mraz cause I'm not that big a fan of his other songs.  Lucky is a duet with the female part sang by Colbie Caillat who I've never heard of.  Yeah, I'm so not with it.  My card is based on the video.  See HERE

I used TGF's Dressy Edward digi and Fancy Anya.  I think Edward looks pretty stylish and so does Fancy.

Please tell me you know who this is!  This card is for a favorite video.  Technically it's inspired by Adele's Grammy performance and not really an official video. 

I altered TGF's Nurse Anya.  I took away her nurse cap and her tray.  I gave her a scoop neck dress and shiny belt and heels.  And she's holding a broken heart in her hand. 

This is a little corner bookmark which was inspired by Fun's We Are Young.  This one is for a favorite lyric.  I had seen a graduating class sing that song and thought it was such a fun song to perform at graduation.  So I took the most inspirational part of the lyrics and added that to the bookmark.  I gave this to my daughter since she just graduated from 5th grade.  I don't think she knows this song.  You can see the video HERE.  The cute image is TGF's Grad Anya.  I also added a fun tassel in my daughter's school colors.

And so now I'm super pooped.  After finishing these up this morning, I had this urge to clean.  Even though I already had 3 loads of laundry to do, I decided to clean the inside of the fridge and the bathroom.  What exactly possessed me to do that, I can't explain.  It's just a strong urge sometimes. 

Oh, and Happy Father's Day!  I was able to keep my hubby's card hidden til today.  So I guess he doesn't read my blog! 

Thanks for reading!

Super cute cards! Great songs! I don't think I even knew about the chat night, not that I would be able to even make anything that fast. Love your Adele, totally looks like her! I can see you don't watch Glee. That's where I heard those 2 songs first! And the Adele song I heard on last season's the voice. So strange that I hear the cover version on TV first.

These are great Eva!
My favorite one is the Adele one. It just screams her. You are fast becoming the altering queen, i like that! :)
Thanks for playing with the CNN Music Challenges.

Ps. Im surprised the school let the graduating class sing the We Are Young song(it talks about abuse with a little bit of drugs mixed in for fun) but i understand, the title/chorus is very catchy and makes you forget about the rest of 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!

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…
