TGF's Farm Fresh Friday -- Pearls

Hello!  It's time for another Farm Fresh Friday!  Jas is challenging us to use pearls on our creations! 

I went really CAS on this card.  I heat embossed the snowflakes from TGF's Sparkling Season using a glittery red and added some pearls in the centers.  The red really sparkles in person but not so much here in the photo.  I love the look of red on kraft and next week I'll have more Xmas cards to share that I made on kraft cardstock.  But I did feel like I was cheating a bit since it's so CAS.  I even tried to see if some twine would look good on it somewhere but in the end I left it alone.

So lately I've been thinking what I should do when I decide to go back to work.  Do I go back to being a speech therapist or should I just work in a less stressful field.  I'm sure all jobs are stressful in their own ways no matter what it is.  Plus I need a part time job cause I still need to go pick up the kids from school.  So something flexible would be nice.  Sigh ... does a job like that exist?  I think I still have a couple more years before I think I need to work.  Though I'd appreciate some kind of sign so I know which direction to take.

Anyway, hopefully you'll play along with our pearl challenge and please check out the rest of the DT's creations!

Thanks for reading!

I'm glad you didn't add the twine...this CAS card is perfect the way it is!

A speech therapist?! My youngest is dyspraxic and we took him to private lessons for 10 years. I would have loved to have had someone come to my home for lessons instead of driving just wasn't an available option. Good luck with your decision!

CAS make this card so special Eva!
Enjoy your Friday and crafty weekend.

It looks nice like this! I think I'm not much of an embellisher in the first place anyhow. Maybe u can find a job share. It would be nice if u could get a crafty job. Then hopefully it would be fun too. Or does it become un-fun once it's a job?

Love the simplicity of it!

Hmm, would you be able to pick up with just a one patient load at first? Or work in retail or art/scrapbooking store?

Love it!! CAS with a touch of sparkle and shine. :)
Hm... You're right any job can be stressfull if you let it. But if you have a few more years to plan what do you see yourself really having fun or enjoying that you think hey that's a pretty cool 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…
