update ...

Hi!  I'm still here ...  But summer is so busy, isn't it?  With my 3 kids all with different schedules, I don't have a huge chunk of time to craft!  Plus I'm so tired by the time it's 10 pm, sometimes earlier, that I just go to sleep!  At least the kiddies are having fun.  Today, my daughter is going to the pool with her summer school math class!  Yeah, some how the teachers have devised a way to learn about math in the pool.  My daughter loves to swim so hopefully she's enjoying the pool at her new school.

My son is also at the same summer school and his class is going on a bowling field trip today!  He is lucky.  His class is going on some field trip every Friday.

And even my youngest one is having a Field Day at his preschool.  He loves to run around.  So I have about an hour or so everyday before I have to pick up or drop off some one at school.  Next year, I gotta get them all on a similar drop off/pick up schedule. 

I have nothing crafty to share today but thought I would post a picture my youngest one drew.

One of his preschool teachers taught him how to draw Angry Birds.  So he came home from school and showed us too!  He loves to draw! 

It's been a funny summer here with lots of rain.  Today is sunny though so hopefully we'll have a good weekend too.  Thanks so much for reading and I'll be back soon!

I know...summer is so busy! I see your little one is going to be artsy just like you...cute angry birds!

What cute birds!!! And so recognizable, that's impressive. Love their flying lines! :) Finally this summer seems less busy since both my kids are finally at the same place! And we could all sleep in a little this week. Maybe next week won't seem as easy getting everybody ready earlier. Can't imagine all your driving, hopefully the traffic is not too bad.
They are so cute....
I know this month June the weather has been a bit iffy... We haven't had stormy rain it's mostly over cast, cloudy kind, exceptional for today weather has been pretty awesome I had a chance to work in my yard today..... Hope it stays nice all weekend too....

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…

lots and lots of tags!

Hi!  I've been making a lot of tags lately trying to get ready for Christmas and I am finally done.

These were made with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.  I love this set.  It is so cute and funny!

Here is the back of the tags.  I think these would be so fun to put on gifts for children.  They would think the tags are so funny!

Here are the polar bear tags.  I love this polar bear.  His expression is so cute!

This is the back of the polar bears.

I also made more of the tags I had made last year.  So these are all listed in my shop now.  I tried to make a lot at one time because I'm not sure if I'll be making more of these designs this year.  I want to make some newer ones with some of my dies that I have not used yet!  Trying so hard to not buy more than I can use.  Although sometimes that is so difficult!  I was really good in September and did not buy any new Mama Elephant or the cute Bitty Bears from Birdie Brown.  I had such restraint but who knows how long that will last t…
