A Fall Birthday

Hello!  I have to post my card quick!  Guess I wasn't paying much attention to when the challenge ends over at Tiddly Ink.  Hope it's okay that I am entering a second card for their Fall Challenge #95

I colored up Hanging Around Wryn and decided to turn it into a Fall birthday card.  I printed out Happy Birthday and stamped the leaf from Paper Smooches multiple times and colored them.  We don't really have a noticeable Fall season here.  It's still pretty hot and the leaves don't change much like they do elsewhere.

We just got back from the pumpkin patch so we are dirty and dusty.  But we bought our pumpkins and lots of yummy veggies and fruits from the farm.  Now I need to recuperate!

Thanks for reading!

Pretty card! So cute with all the falling leaves. I think we are skipping the pumpkin patch this year. I think we might be a bit overscheduled with the extracurriculars.

Great card! Lov the falling leaves, so cute! Thanks for joining us at the Tiddly Inks challenge this week.

Sooo Sweet! That is such an adorable image. Great job with the paper piecing.
Hugs, Dangina
A totally FUN card. Just love the image and scene. Would you believe I used to hang upside-down like that when I was a kid? Have a great week.

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.

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!

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them.

I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand?

This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful.

I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet.  And th…
