CC Designs December Review --Snowman Flakes

Hello!  This will be a quick post as I am trying to finish up a whole lot of last minute things.  Where exactly does time go?  Though I guess I did a lot of procrastinating too!

It's December review time over at CC Designs.  Here is my snowflake ornament featuring Snow Flakes.  I actually bought a foam activity kit for kids from Walmart to make these snowflakes.  It was such a great deal and my youngest will be making his own along with his classmates on the last day of school.  Theirs will be a little different in that they will use their photo for the center of their snowflakes.  But I made this as kind of a sample for them and as something to hang on our tree too.  I tied on a tag and a little snowman button too.


Here's a close up of him.  He is so fast to color up.  You could make a lot of fast Xmas projects with this guy.

That's it for now.  Hope you are all getting your shopping done.  I think I am but now there is a lot of wrapping to do.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

That's a cute snowflake ornament and I'm sure your son's class will love making their own. Every snowflake will be unique like every child. May your Christmas be glittery and 2014 be full of creativity.

Great idea!
I am always passing those do it yourself boxes over each time I go to Michael's never thinking how fun it would be to do something like this. Especially to distract the kids. hehe.
TFS!

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.

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!
