A birthday

Hello!  I've been busy making a lot of teacher stuff.  You know with 3 kids there is an endless amount of teachers!  I try not to get too carried away.  I have to wrap a few more gifts and I should be done.  But I'll have to share those on another day.  Today I have a birthday project to share.  It's my cousin's birthday so I thought I'd make a little something for her.

This stamp is another Uptown Girl called Isabelle loves her ice cream.  She's such a fun stamp and the sentiment is funny too.  If only the sentiment were true.  I made an envelope to hold a gift certificate.

I stamped the sentiment onto vellum and used some heat to quicken up the drying process.  I should've left the vellum to cool down a bit before gluing it on cause then it got all wonky.  Sigh.

So did any of you watch The Vampire Diaries?  Happy that Damon and Elena have a chance to be together but did you see how sad Stefan was?  I was so sad!  And then to be trapped in a coffin and thrown into the water?  It was definitely not his day.

Do any of you watch Long Island Medium?  The spirits always send such happy and reassuring messages.  Aren't there any disgruntled spirits that want to tell their relatives that they're pissed off or something?  Just wondering.

Time to get back to more coloring and doing some DT stuff!  Have a great Memorial Day!

Thanks for reading!

I was able to watch the season finale of VD and then had to ask my co-worker to explain. lol. I now know that I need to find them all to watch and catch up. oi vay. but the part about stefan was bad, now you have to wait a whole season to see what happens. maybe i can catch up by then.

So cute! Yum, ice cream! Love the bright pretty colors! Hmmm, I guess I need to find more online shows now that the season finales are over for the 2 shows I usually watch.

OMG, it's like we're connected! LOVE Vampire Diaries! I was super happy for Damon to get the girl, even though Elena gets on my nerves. (big Damon fan!!) Love Long Island Medium too! That lady is so interesting!

Great card! I just bought a few of these stamps myself! Finishing last teacher gift has been never-ending....

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.

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…
