CC Designs Toys for Tots Blog Hop!!

Hello!  Welcome to the CC Designs Toys for Tots Blog Hop!  I am so excited you could join us for the preview of Roberto's Rascals "Henry Claus" and "I want that."  CC Designs will be donating 30% of the sales of these 2 adorable stamps to Toys for Tots from today October 4, 2013 through December 23, 2013.

If you arrived here from Christa's blog, you are in the right place.  If not, you may want to go back to the start of the hop HERE.

This is my project featuring Henry Claus.  He is pretty sweet and gotta love his little dog hitching a ride in his sack.  The sentiment on the little tag is from Funny Christmas Sayings.

Here is a close up of little Henry.

This project looks similar to the other present shaped gift card holder I made HERE.  But it is actually different.  The tutorial can be found HERE.  I changed it up by adding real ribbon.  When you remove the bow, the top and bottom open up.

This is the inside.  There is a space for the gift card to slide into.  The sentiment on the inside is from AmyR Scripted Greetings.  I love the fancy look of this sentiment.

Next on the hop is Delphine!  I am sure she has something wonderful to share with you.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

OOOOh, another great Christmas gift card holder. I love the image and how you colored it so expertly. The overall colors, paper choices and layout are fabulous too. The ribbon that ties up the gift is a clever touch. Thank you for sharing your talent.

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!
