Joy to the world

Hello!  I thought I'd take the time to play in Tiddly Inks Challenge #99 -- Make it like Marlena today.  I got this digi Wryn Goes Caroling when it was first released and I colored her up but didn't get a chance to put her onto a card.  And it's a good thing I printed up some of these Xmas Wryns a while ago cause my printer is all messed up now.  So my love/hate relationship with my printer continues.  Yup, in a hate phase right now. 

So here she is finally on a card.  I love these Wryns.  So adorable and fun to color too.  I added the holly die which is from CC Designs and a little gingerbread man button.

A little close up.  I love Christmas but not so much Christmas music.  Maybe I'm just tired of hearing the same stuff?  But I do love these 2 songs.  The first is Willie K's version of O Holy Night.  You can hear it HERE.  I never really get tired of hearing this version.  The second is the Christmas version of Pachelbel's Canon in D.  You can hear it HERE.  I love listening to Pachelbel's Canon in D.  It was at our wedding too all those years ago.  I must drive my husband crazy listening to all the different versions of it on You Tube.  And then I kick myself for not practicing piano as a kid so I could play this.     

Thanks for the comments on my previous post of Miyoko's hair colors!  When I finish them up, I'll post the colors I used for her hair. 

Thanks for reading!

All she's adorable! This is a really super sweet card!I have her but not colored up, maybe next year. So many of my holiday images will have to wait for next year. lol.
I love the Willie K song, and have been enjoying all the Hawaiian Christmas music on Hawaiian 105.
Take care!

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…
