Chi Chi Memories Post #10

Hello!  We woke up this morning to a power outage.  It was about 5 in the morning when I could hear my kiddies giggling and playing in their room.  Yes, I have super hearing even in my sleep and even though their room is way on the other side of the house and down some stairs.  I thought I was dreaming of course because who wakes up at 5 am on a Sunday morning?  I went down to the room and found my daughter was awake too and all 3 of them were talking story in the dark.  I scolded them to go back to bed!  My boys woke up because their night light went out and it was dark!  Very similar to me.  I woke up cause it was unusually dark in my bedroom too.  We keep a night light too in case our youngest wanders into our room which he occasionally does.  But I realized today that I would much rather sleep in complete darkness.  I am taking that night light out and my youngest can stumble in the dark to our room if he has to.  Thankfully the electricity was up again in time to cook pancakes for breakfast.

Typically, I don't post my Chi Chi Memories project til Friday but this is my last card for them and I didn't want to have a double post since it is Sister Stamps preview week too. 

My last card features the puppy from Winter Sports digi set.  I think I may have gone overboard with the frantage so maybe it's more like a blizzard instead of gently falling snow.  The sentiment is from CC Designs.

While looking for paper to match this cute puppy, I realize I have too many 6x6 paper pads.  So no more paper buying for me ... unless it is Doodlebug.  Haha, there's my disclaimer.  I can't wait for all the new Doodlebug pads to come out.

I am also super excited to share some Sister Stamps projects soon.  It's been a while, hasn't it?  

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Love the card. Your animals are always adorable.

Sounds sweet - your kids giggling together at 5 am (but glad it wasn't at my house). I sleep with a night light too but its for the dog to see :( just in case...

Tail-wagging puppy sweetness! Love your color choices. It's hard not to smile at kids enjoying life even at 5am on Sunday!

Reminds me that I should set my alarm on my phone or something in case the power goes out and messes up the alarm clock! Cute paper and doggie! Neat frantage, never heard of that product, but looks kind of glittery.

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!

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…

Papertrey November Blog Hop Challenge

Hi!  It's been a while since I participated in one of PTI's blog hop challenges.  But I had to play along this month.  Not only did I place an order on release night but I also got my goodies in about a week!  So I had some time to play around with my new stamps and dies.  Hehe.  Below is the inspiration photo.

I love the Christmas theme and the colors too so I went with that.

When I saw the newly released penguin stamp and die, I had to get them.  So cute!!  I thought this penguin would make a cute spinner card too.  Similar to the froggy one I made HERE.  I also used PTI's In the Meadow dies.  I used the die itself and my hobby blade to cut along the curved edge to create the little cut out for the penguin to slide.  I did that twice leaving a quarter inch space between them.

I layered the penguin with PTI's coasters.

I added a tiny bell to his hat.

He slides down.  The jingle all the way sentiment is from Tiny Treats Xmas.  Just traced the space with a pencil and curv…
