Yumi and Fumi Handmade Challenge #17 reminder

Hello!  I think I am behind on stuff!  Already feeling some of the summer laziness.  But the past few days I've been having some mild headaches in the afternoons and evenings so I've been going to bed early instead of doing my usual coloring and card making.  Today I feel better.  I think that afternoon nap helped.  Love it when the hubby makes dinner and gets the kids to take a bath early. 

Back to the real purpose of this post.  Reminder time again for Yumi & Fumi Handmade's Challenge #17.  Create anything for a Father figure following the challenge guidelines. 

I used AJ Lion for my Father's Day card which I think is sort of non traditional.  I've had these papers for a while and use them every time I color up AJ Lion!  I can't remember what company they are from.

Here's a close up of the sentiment.  The letters are die cuts from All That Scraps and the father's day sentiment is from My Guy clear stamp set. 

I'm thinking about selling some of my old stamps and dies (Pure Innocence and Papertrey Ink).  I just need some time to sort through them and maybe take some photos of them.  They are all hardly used!  Which is why I think I should sell them.  I am running out of space.  Hope you're interested!  I'll try to list them soon on my blog.

Thanks so much 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…

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!
