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~
big smiles :-)

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.

Sorry about your Copic woes, I think I'd get snippy too! On the bright are in Hawaii.

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!
