Yumi & Fumi Handmade 1st Birthday Blog Hop!!!

Hello!  Happy Birthday to Yumi & Fumi Handmade!  They are turning 1!  I can't believe it's already been one whole year since Leanne and Renate' started their own awesome stamp line.  So how else to celebrate this occasion but with a fun blog hop!

There are a lot of participants for this hop so you can find the master list HERE on Yumi and Fumi Handmade Crafts blog.  Please refer back to the list if you happen to get lost along the way.  All the prize details and blog hop specifics can also be found there.  Be sure to comment on each blog to be eligible for prizes.

Here is the photo we used for our creative inspiration.  I love these colors!  So bright and cheery!

My card features Summer Yumi.  The sentiment is from Tiddly Inks.

Here's a close up photo.  Tried a different hair color combo.  Think it looks okay.

I'm going to keep this post short so you can get on to hopping.  But before I send you off to Denice's fabulous blog, I want to thank Leanne and Renate' for taking me on this DT while I was pretty much an inexperienced newbie.  Thank you so much!  I wish you guys the best of everything!

Hope you enjoy the hop!  Thanks for stopping by!

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!

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…
