TGF's "Pay it Forward" Thanksgiving Challenge!

Hello!!!  Marie and Jess at The Greeting Farm have come up with a wonderful way to show their gratitude and want to "Pay it Forward" this Thanksgiving.  The DT has joined along by creating projects with a Thankful/gratitude theme.

I used the super sweet Snuggle stamp for my card.  The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.

A close up.  I love these image!

Here are the details!

HOW to enter:

Create a card or project using TGF Stamps and post it to InLinkz on TGF's blog.

PAY IT FORWARD:

Once you enter your card, please send Jessica a private email at yeahshesnaps at icloud. com and NOMINATE a person you know that might be struggling or going through something hard this year. This can be a person who's been a little down on their luck, struggling financially, going through something tough, lost job, etc. TGF will NOT share the recipient you choose- this will be done in private.

However, based on the responses, one recipient will be drawn and the person who nominates them will also win a prize. The player will be announced, but their nomination won't, if that makes sense

PRIZE:

The lucky winner whose nomination is chosen will receive a 4x6 set of choice from TGF as a thank you for participating in the challenge.

The "Paying it Forward" recipient will win:

2 4x6 stamp sets from TGF
1 single stamp from TGF (these have already been put aside)
Ink
Acrylic Block
Asstd. cardstock and 6x6 papers
Asstd. Embellishments
...and a few more surprises

PLEASE spread the word on Facebook, Twitter, by email, etc. when you can. We want to make this BIG and really want to spread an attitude of gratitude around everyone this holiday season.

DEADLINE:

You have until Wed. Nov. 21, at 10pm CST to enter your card and email Jessica. The winner will be announced sometime on Thanksgiving Day as we enjoy the day with family looking back on all we have to be grateful for. How awesome it will feel knowing that someone will be kicking off their holidays with a little pick me up from TGF?!

Sound exciting?  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!

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…

I wheelie like you!

Hello!  I started making some Valentine's Day cards for my shop.  I love Lawn Fawn stamps and their punny sayings!  So I used a bunch of their stamps recently.  And I totally thought I would be good and not get anything from their new release but those dies!  I want the Fancy Box and the Scalloped Box Card Pop up! 

Here is one of the cards I've made recently using Lawn Fawn's Wheelie Like You set.  I had to do some selective stamping to stamp the Wheelie three times and in red.  I use a small post it and cover up the words I do not want to be inked up.  Then I remove the post its and stamp only the word I want.

Here's a close up.  I fussy cut the little guinea pig out and adhered him onto the wheel.  Wait, he is a guinea pig, right?  Could he also be a hamster?

Well, hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.  We had an incredible day of traffic yesterday!  My husband and daughter were stuck on the road for about 5 hours.  If you live on Oahu, you know what I'm talking a…
