Thank you

Hi!  Happy Saturday!  I checked out the only authorized Copic distributor here on this island today.  Bummers cause I only found one of the refills I was looking for.  I needed one other refill but they didn't have it in stock.  Now isn't that why we shop online?  Not too helpful either when they don't have a specific time it will come into stock.  Oh, sometime in September.  Geez.  So if you are the only distributor on this whole entire island and we can't order from anywhere else online, shouldn't you try to keep most things in stock?  Just a suggestion. 

I should get on with my card before I say something really snipe-y and sarcastic that I'll regret much later.  Oh, but I got a cute Halloween Doodlebug paper pad that I'm excited to use from one of my favorite stores, J's Knicknacks.  So that made me happy.

There is a new sketch by Shaela for TGF on Splitcoaststampers.  Check it out HERE.

My card uses TGF's Blush Thanks.  I used my Perfect Layers rulers in different widths for all the mats.  All the papers are from Basic Grey's Out of Print paper pad.  I added some lace and a resin flower.  Simple card.

I heat embossed the image in white.

Okay folks, that is it for me.  Time to tackle some house chores and maybe get to something crafty.  I may not post something again until TGF's next FFF.  But I should have lots to share after that.

Thanks so much for reading and have a great weekend!

Love the simplicity of your card... and that doodle paper is super cool....
FYI - I gave up buying my marker's here in Hawaii too expensive and I can get them way cheaper on-line...
Enjoy your fantastic weekend Eva~

Awww, yeah, kind of limited if there's only 1 store! Cute card, very vintage-y. I think I just gave up on crafting for a while, sorry, can't help you out with anything to post.
Super Sweet! Love your colors and Design.
Tons of Hugs, Dangina
Hi Eva. I can imagine how you feel about the Copic refill. Like pulling hairs yah? Love your card. I saw that stamp before but didn't buy it because I couldn't think of how I would use it. Now that I see your card, regret sets in. :-) Have a crafty Sunday.

Cute way to use this stamp...I sometimes get stumped with CAS, but you did a great job with it!
Sorry about your Copic woes, I think I'd get snippy too! On the bright side...you are in Hawaii.

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…

I wheelie like you!

Hello!  I started making some Valentine's Day cards for my shop.  I love Lawn Fawn stamps and their punny sayings!  So I used a bunch of their stamps recently.  And I totally thought I would be good and not get anything from their new release but those dies!  I want the Fancy Box and the Scalloped Box Card Pop up! 

Here is one of the cards I've made recently using Lawn Fawn's Wheelie Like You set.  I had to do some selective stamping to stamp the Wheelie three times and in red.  I use a small post it and cover up the words I do not want to be inked up.  Then I remove the post its and stamp only the word I want.

Here's a close up.  I fussy cut the little guinea pig out and adhered him onto the wheel.  Wait, he is a guinea pig, right?  Could he also be a hamster?

Well, hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.  We had an incredible day of traffic yesterday!  My husband and daughter were stuck on the road for about 5 hours.  If you live on Oahu, you know what I'm talking a…
