Birthday Bash Blog Hop

Hi!  It is Miss Christine's birthday and we decided to have a party!  We are doing a blog hop just for her.  If you came here from wonderful Christa's blog, you are in the right place.  If you didn't, you may want to start at the All That Scraps blog.  You don't want to miss any bit of this party!

Happy Birthday, Christine!!  

Thank you for your generosity and thoughtfulness and of course, for creating amazingly sweet and cute stamps and dies!

This is the card I created just for Christine.  It's the first time I've ever used this stamp but I thought Wild Rose Studio's Bella with Flowers was perfect for a birthday card.  Bella is colored with Copics and some light chalk on her cheeks and a bit of blue in the background which is difficult to see.  I matted the squares using my Perfect Layers rulers.  I used white tissue paper cut with Magnolia's Tilda lace die and layered that behind the squares.

The flowers and grass are cut from CC Designs dies.  I love the flower border die!  It is so pretty!  The butterfly is also one of CC Designs border dies.  I just cut one of the butterflies out.  The sentiment is from Wild Rose Studio.

Alright, I don't want to keep you here too long.  There is a lot to see on this hop!  Next on the hop is sweet Delphine!

Thank you for stopping by!

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!

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…

I need to catch up!

Hello!  I've been neglecting my blog!  And I don't want to do that since we've put a lot of work into posting these past years.  But just some days don't have much energy to take photos and then blog.  This is my catch up post.  Sharing some cards I've made this summer which isn't a lot because summer seemed to be a busy time with the kiddies.

I made a few pet sympathy cards using Taylored Expressions Care & Comfort.



Just used a very simple design since I like keeping sympathy cards minimal.

I love Lawn Fawn's punny sentiments!  So I got this one called Stinkin' Cute.  I paired it with the tree stump from the Mom & Me set.  I have some other punny ones that I haven't even inked up and colored yet.  I have to get going on making more cards!

Here is another Lawn Fawn one.  I've had this stamp set, Life is Good, for so long and didn't use it until this past month or so.  He's such a cute crab!

This is the last card I've made rec…
