Sister Stamps July Release -- Doogie

Hello again!  I can't believe it's the last day of June!  The summer needs to slow down.  But at least this new Sister Stamps release will be available July 1st.  I have one last card to share and it's a birthday card because Sister Stamps is celebrating 2 years!  Happy Birthday to Sister Stamps!

My birthday card features Doogie.  He's adorable!  I love that he has an action pose going on.  The balloons and cupcake are from other Sister Stamps too.  Do you know which two?  The balloons are from Takeo, and I cut them out and tied them onto Doogie's tail.  Though I'm thinking maybe I should've made the balloon strings longer?  Anyway, Doogie's gotta take his own balloons to the party.  The cupcake is from one of my favorite Sister Stamps, Miyoko.  The banner and sentiment are from Lawn Fawn.

Close up photo of Doogie going for that cupcake.

The other day, I took my youngest to J's Knicknacks because they were having another awesome sale.  Mostly I bought Copic Xpress It Blending Cardstock but I let my son pick out his very own Stickles.  He loves glitter glue but Crayola kind doesn't last too long and so he gets disappointed.  He got to pick two colors and a package of rhinestones too.  He loves rhinestones!  I need to teach him to use them in moderation (hoard) and not all on one card!

I know, before you know it, it's back to school! Another cute card! Ha! Love your little scene! Cute idea with the balloons! Yeah, good idea to stick to glitter glue, I thought the kids kind glitter would be cheaper, but way too messy...especially when some little rugrat starts to use it when I'm not watching!

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!

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!
