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.

Cool card, so neatly grungy! Ha ha, still can't reconcile you and messy! The hair looks nice!

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!

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…
