kero kero keroppi!

Hello!  I don't know what it is about summer but it sure makes me feel lazy.  Well, I guess it's because we don't have such a strict routine of activities and the kiddies haven't started summer school yet and the hubby is on vacation this week too.  We went to the beach one day and drove around to see the sights today and ate out a little and celebrated my little one's birthday too.  And I got a long nap today too so yeah, I've been feeling lazy. 

But my youngest one has a birthday party to go to soon so I thought I'd make another little coin purse to hold a giftcard. 

I have some Keroppi fabric so thought that would be cute for the birthday girl.  This coin purse has a D-hook ring attached to it.

The inside is lined with some matchy green and I used a green zipper too so that it looks more fun.  I sewed everything with a light pink thread for a little bit of contrast.  I don't know if you can tell but the coin purses I've been making have a bit of poof to it too.  I add a layer of batting so it is soft and squishy.

I am trying to work on another sewing project too but we'll see how lazy I'll be feeling the next few days.  Ha!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you're enjoying your summer!

Cute coin purse! And cute fabric! Great idea with the batting! How funny, I just woke up from dozing off while helping on math homework cuz it was taking so long just to do 30 problems.

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!
