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!

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…

lots and lots of tags!

Hi!  I've been making a lot of tags lately trying to get ready for Christmas and I am finally done.

These were made with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.  I love this set.  It is so cute and funny!

Here is the back of the tags.  I think these would be so fun to put on gifts for children.  They would think the tags are so funny!

Here are the polar bear tags.  I love this polar bear.  His expression is so cute!

This is the back of the polar bears.

I also made more of the tags I had made last year.  So these are all listed in my shop now.  I tried to make a lot at one time because I'm not sure if I'll be making more of these designs this year.  I want to make some newer ones with some of my dies that I have not used yet!  Trying so hard to not buy more than I can use.  Although sometimes that is so difficult!  I was really good in September and did not buy any new Mama Elephant or the cute Bitty Bears from Birdie Brown.  I had such restraint but who knows how long that will last t…

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!
