TGF's August Retro-Fresh!

Hello!!  Thanks everyone for all your sympathy regarding my Copic buying woes!  Apparently, Copic at the corporate level (in Japan) has set this policy for stores to sell within their own territories and well, Oahu doesn't rate I guess cause we get no online choices.

Anyway, it's that time for The Greeting Farm's monthly Retro-Fresh Challenge!  This month's theme is Golden Hour -- use the colors yellow, orange and baby blue.  Seems easy enough, right?  Don't forget to also use a TGF image that is at least 6 months old!  This challenge is meant for us to use our oldies but goodies.  Check out the list HERE!

Here's my card!  I used Hippie Anya!  While I was looking through all my stamps for this challenge, Hippie Anya just seemed to scream those colors.  I don't really know, but I think I'm going through some one layer, simple card phase these days.  Do you go through phases too?  I just stuck some washi tape onto my card base.  The sentiment is from TGF's Roll Call Kit.  It didn't stamp too well on the washi tape part so I just went over it with my black Copic multiliner pen.

I covered her flower and the rectangle patch on her jeans with Glossy Accents and Stickles to her necklace and head thingy.  What do you call that?  I think she looks pretty groovy.  Ha! 

Please check out TGF's blog for challenge details and more cool inspiration by the Showcase DT.  I'm so loving being on this team.  Can time please slow down?  Thank you.

Thanks for reading!

Super fun and funky Eva! Those colors are some of my faves. I think I will play along cause as much as I love the new images, the old ones have a special place in my heart. Thanks for the cuteness!

She's so cute, Eva! And good idea to use the washi tape in the background!
Such a fun and very colorful card.

Love your background! I thinkyiouknow I like to make that kind of burst background with watercolors (He-art Journal) and Hippie Anya is one of my favorites! I think I was born a little to late because I really like stuff from the '60s and early '70s.

Really Groovy card!

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…

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…

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!
