Back to School with TGF's FFF

Hello!!  I'm hosting The Greeting Farm's Farm Fresh Friday this week!!  I think I'm getting the hang of this -- can I do this, um, forever??  Haha!  Since tons of kiddies have gone back or are going back to school, I went with a Back to School theme.

I chose Do Si Do Anya!  She looks all ready for her first day of school!  Though by the end of the school day, her hair might be all wasted.  My daughter used to go to school with cute hair in the morning and come home a mess!  I finally got to used my school embellishments like the mini ruler and chalk cardstock.  I was gonna write a little more but my kids only had the super fat chalk and that was hard to write with so all I could scribble legibly was A+.   

Oh, surprise!  It's an easel card to hold a post it pad.  Okay, that little pencil looks cute but it's totally only decorative.  Next time, I will use velcro.  It's pretty stuck on with tape.  My kids have so many pencils that are too small to use now so I got some of my cute My Melody washi tape and covered the old looking pencil.  Click on photo if you want to see it larger.  Then I used of the same washi tape and looped it through the paper clip on top.

Here's a little side view.

Alrighty folks, please play along this week!  We love to see lots of people playing!  All the challenge details are on the TGF blog.  Go visit and see more cute TGF school cards!

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!
