Naughty or Nice????

Hello!  I have a terrible addiction these days.  Not to stamping or coloring or card making but to watching The Vampire Dairies.  Anyone watch that?  I started watching the episodes while I was walking on my treadmill.  Kind of needed something to past the time while I pretended to exercise.  Now I'm totally hooked.  But it's bad because now I just watch that instead of exercising.  It's so much more enjoyable just to watch something without having to sweat.  So I may be falling a tad behind on crafting.  Hehe.  I will have to force myself back to reality soon.

Here are a couple of post it covers that I made.  You might have seen it at All That Scraps recently.

They're a little different looking.  The one on the left has a little notch in it.  I made that one first after I had seen a little note thingy that we got in the mail.  I liked the idea of the pen being tucked inside like that and I just copied it including that notch.  But then I realized I don't really need that notch so I took it out of the second one that I made which is on the right.  I like it better just square and it's much easier to make.

I put the Naughty or Nice? sentiment from CC Designs Funny Christmas Sayings on the spine.  Thought it would be cute to use these for list making.  Santa is also from CC Designs Meoples No Peeking.

Here's view of the inside.  Bought these pens from where else, Walmart!

Another view.

I'm looking forward to this week.  I love eating turkey but only for Thanksgiving!  And maybe Christmas.  I plan on cooking so I'm actually starting tomorrow. 

By the way, I also have a post up at Yumi & Fumi Handmade Crafts featuring some of the new winter themed stamps which will be released on November 26th.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Reminds me that I missed Once Upon a Time and Revenge on Sunday, if they even had new episodes, so nice to have TV online nowadays.

Anyhow, that Santa is sooo cute!

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…

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!

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!
