I have two cards to share today using stamps from The Craft's Meow and my set of Perfect Layers rulers.

This is the first card featuring Fall Fibi & Lilly.  I thought this was such a sweet image from the set and so perfect for Thanksgiving that is just around the corner.  I know I am getting all ready for Thanksgiving and prepping to cook lots of food.  I used the 1/16th inch ruler for these layers.  I know I seem to favor that thin layer a lot.  The sentiment is included in the set.  The paper and pearls are from Doodlebug, the swirls from MFT and the corners from La-La Land Crafts.

Here is a close up of Fibi & Lilly.  They are colored with Copics.

My second card features this cute little turtle from Turtle Love.  She is such a sweet looking turtle!  I used my 1/16th inch ruler again for the layer here.  I turned this into an interactive card.  It's not a spinner card because I didn't use a heavy penny for it to spin on its own.  I used some button dies and a little bit of twine and you can move the heart around the turtle.

Here's another photo with the heart in a different position.

A close up photo of the turtle.  Her pink hearts have some glossy accents on them.

This is the inside of the card and the sentiment is what inspired me to turn this into an interactive card and have the heart move around the turtle.  The thin border is 1/16th inch and the sentiment is matted with the 1/8th inch ruler.

Next on the hop is Lin.

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy the hop!

Love the kittens sitting on the pumpkin. the turtle card is great. Love using the "spinner" to go along with the sentiment inside the card. Have to remember that idea.

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!
