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!

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…
