TGF's Double Take Tuesday

Hello!  I hope I've scheduled this right.  Daylight savings time stuff always throws me off.  We don't change here but I'm always confused what time it is on the mainland.

Anyway, it is time for The Greeting Farm's Double Take Tuesday.  It's a color challenge this week.  Use Red, Teal and White on your cards/projects.

I used the newly release Sadie for my card.  I stamped my own background using stamps from TGF.  The splotchy parts were heat embossed but in red, not white.  Hehe.  The sentiment says You're my kind of cool.  It was embossed in white.

So maybe you're thinking why her hair highlights are off.  That is what happens when I am coloring and then get interrupted a gazillion times by 3 kids.  I thought about redoing it but figured Sadie is cool enough to pull of this look. 

Okay, please hop over to the TGF blog to check out the rest of the team's creations and join in on the challenge!

Thanks for reading!

Kind of convenient that we don't change times either, just time zones.

Wonderful card and I wouldn't have noticed the highlights if you hadn't said something...thought it was just her coolness coming out in her hair!

What a sweetie and a fab background you created. I never knew highlights to be even...are they supposed to be?
Oh I think she came out adorable, highlights and all. Love this color combo too.

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!
