hello chickie!

Hello!  The weather here is still a little wet and still a little windy!  Like a mild hurricane.  Every so often there is a strong gust of wind.  We recently took our kids to the Pali Lookout.  They had so much fun fighting the strong winds.  And there were chickens!  And little chicks too!  We get so excited when we see little farm animals.  Kind of like how we get excited seeing a squirrel when we travel to the mainland.  Haha.  After, my hair was all twisted and tangled.  Good thing my daughter had hers in a ponytail.

Here's a little tag I made to share over at All That Scraps -- Anything But a Card

The little cutie is called Cracked Lula.  I used a bunch of stamps and dies on this tag.  The sentiment is from Eggstra Special Sentiments and the bird from Birdie Day.  The dies I used are Eggs die, Chickadee die, Grass border die and Four Season Fence die.  You can find all these at All That Scraps.  The tag itself is from Papertrey Ink.

I paper pieced the egg and added some liquid pearls to the smaller egg die cut. Papers are from Doodlebug.

Alrighty, that is it for now.  Thanks so much for reading!


OMG! I love this. Beautiful colors and paper piecing.
Hugs, Dangina

What a fun card! I like how the little girl is popping out of the egg.Yes, chickens get us excited too but glad they are not running around in our yard. And, the Pali, it's normally windy so it must have been crazy windy in the weather. Sounds like a good time!

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…
