All That Scraps October Review

Hi!  Today All That Scraps is reviewing Mashi's Muffins!  These stamps always look fun and happy!

Here is my card featuring Elfen.  Love her big, bright smile so I had to go with that particular sentiment which is from Fanciful Christmas.  The little tree is a die cut.  Isn't it cute?

I'm not sure but my colors may be off on this monitor.  I haven't adjusted the colors since switching out my monitor so I think my photos look a bit darker than usual.  Yes?  No?

Anyway, I washed the car this morning and I'm tired.  I realize that it is so much better to go to the car wash or let my hubby wash the car.  For one thing, the car is too big for me to wash.  I can't reach the roof even with a ladder so there are spots down the middle of our car roof.  And the tires are a big pain too.  I don't want to make the rims shiny like my hubby does.  And now my fingernails are yucky too.  But today I promised not to be so lazy like yesterday.  I didn't prep dinner or wash the dishes or prep the kiddies' lunches so I really had a ton of stuff to do once the kids got home and we had a late dinner.  So I guess I better get on it and go wash the dishes and prep some dinner.  How do you get your fingernails clean after washing the car?  Hope I don't get yucky stuff into our dinner!

Oh, and be sure to hop over to the ATS blog for more Mashi's Muffins!

Thanks for reading!

So cute! yeah, she looks really happy and bright. I had the same problem with reaching the roof, I only tried a step stool, the ladder looked too painful to take out! I can't believe you tried that. Plus the water dries so fast if you're in the hot sun, can't help but leave water spots. Costco here has a drive through car wash now. I think you need some kind of degreaser. I tried to use a brush instead of a sponge on the rims, that seems a little cleaner for my hands, even if the rims don't get as clean. I figure they're going to get dirty soon driving around again anyhow.
Super cute card Eva! love the Christmasy colors - so well done!
Aw looks like your all pooped out!
Today is my day to do my car, it's a bit challenging but since I drive it hubby says I have to take some responsibility in up keeping her.
Enjoy your hump day!

You're funny! I am the worst about getting my car washed. The inside is spic and span, but it could use a little scrubbing on the outside.

Very cute card! I do love that tree die, it's perfect! I almost feel like she may rip little Gingy's arm off though! lol! Awesome job!

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…

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…
