Birthday Wishes

Hello!  I posted this card over at Yumi & Fumi Handmade Crafts blog in honor of Sandie's birthday.  I'm finally sharing it here.

This is Yumi with Fan.  She was fun to color up!  I didn't really know what colors I was going for but somehow it came together.  Sometimes I have no plans or ideas about the card but then everything falls into place.  Even used my leftover doily from another card that was still on my crafty table.  And I dug up some pins that I had in my stash from a while back.  The sentiment is from Wild Rose Studio.

I exercised again today!  But exercise makes me sleepy.  Does it make you sleepy?  I still keep waiting for that feeling that everyone says exercise gives them.  You know, about feeling rejuvenated and energetic, and how if they go a day without exercising then they feel off.  How long does it take to get to that point?  I think I will never reach that point.  Cause after I exercise I wanna take a nap.  Not go run around some more outside.  So I think after this post, I'm gonna go lie down and nap.  

Thanks for reading!


This is so adorable, I love the fabulous papers you used with her.
Fab job Eva. I wish these images were available in digi as that is what I can afford. Love seeing the beautiful way you color them up, and I love the Bingo sheets in the background.

Another pretty card! Pretty skin tones and kimono coloring too! I think it's just too humid to feel so peppy in Hawaii! That sticky sweaty feeling would just make me want to veg in front of the A/C.

Love your coloring and all the emellies on this card, I bet Sandie LOVED all her b/day wishes.

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.

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…
