keep cozy

Hi!  Hope you're enjoying your day!  I always have a couple of quiet hours on Sunday when the kids are out.  So peaceful to do whatever it is I need to get done but the time goes by too quickly.

There is a new TGF sketch over at SCS.  Please check it out and play along.

I inked up and colored one of the new girls from Miss Anya Scarves.  Doesn't she look so cozy in all her winter wear?  Yeah, I've never had winter clothes like that.  Part of me thinks all that would make me itch.  Haha.  The sentiment is from TGF's Keep Cozy -- the one with all the cute snowmen.  The papers are all from Wild Rose Studio.  I love the colors!  I made the felt (from PTI) snowflakes using dies from My Favorite Things.  I also used my Perfect Layers rulers to mat my main image to the size I wanted. 

This is one of my favorite dark purple Copic combos these days.  Looks grey doesn't it?  But it's purple!

Thanks for reading!

Pretty card! Lovely patterned paper and colors! And super cute snowflakes! Yeah, I'm ready for it to start cooling down, so much mosquitos lately too! But not so cold that you gotta bundle up like that!
Your coloring is so awesome. There's a glow in her golden hair....very, very nice. Love the snowflake embellie too...it just adds that special holiday touch. Have a great week.

This is fantastic. That is a really nice shade of purple and yes it does look gray. Love her coloring and this fun layout. Pretty snowflake too. I can tell you there are soft sweaters and then there are scratchy ones.
This is a really cute color combo and card.

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!

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…
