Emojis are helpful

Hello!  I know my blog has been rather neglected these days so I was kind of excited when I saw I had a comment.  Wow, who would comment on my blog when I have nothing new to share?  My excitement was short lived of course because the comment was:

"Because Eric Carle's original artwork wasn't good enough?" on What do you see?

Hmmm, what was the purpose of this comment?  To be nasty?  Sarcastic?  Snide?  I can't tell, maybe it needs some kind of mean faced emoji next to it.  Then I would totally get it.

Or maybe I am totally wrong and this was just a light hearted, fun comment that needs an LOL next to it?

Anyway, my crafty blog is public and I guess that leaves it open to some mean spirited comments though this is the first one I've gotten besides the occasional do you want to work at home kind of spam.

Thank you to the commenter for taking the time to leave this thoughtful comment.  It has made my day!  (Insert sarcastic emoji here).

Thank you to my crafty friends for visiting today.  (Insert grateful emoji here).
Sorry I don't have anything pretty to share.  I've been in a crafty slump lately.  (Insert sad emoji here).

P.S. I am not tech savvy enough to find the appropriate emojis to insert into this post.  (Insert confused emoji here).

Sorry that someone one left a puzzling, possibly negative comment. I get weird comments sometimes and even some in languages I can't even recognize...hahaha! maybe they are saying something mean but I can't understand them.LOL! Love your emoji come back! I have been trying to send positive comments to you about your last two posts. But for some reason I cannot get through (just thought you should know in case others are having problems too). Your cards are very clever and artistic. I also adore pandas and so I was thrilled to see your lovely creations. Don't let some random comment upset you because I'm sure you know in your heart that you are very talented and you inspire many of us in blogland. Hugs to you, my friend!

First of all, I didn't know those faces were called emojis! I'm like behind the times! But probably another reason why I wouldn't want my kids on social media or whatever, I think random people feel too free to write mean things that they probably wouldn't say to someone's face! Or if it wasn't meant to be mean, it didn't really come across that way when you can't see someone's face and tell if they're joking! All kinds of problems out here recently with publicly elected officials writing inflammatory comments on forums under pseudonyms...and then eventually getting found out... Anyhow, don't put too much stock in anonymous comments, just delete anything that sounds rude!

Sorry to hear about the crafting slump. I hope you'll continue to search for inspiration because it takes just one picture or shopping spree to get me in the mood...haha. Hugs to you and I know you'll be back to crafting soon. You always have such cute stuff and I adore and look forward to your posts!! You cracked me up with your (emojis). I have no idea how to do those either!

Hey Eva! :)
I'm sure if Mr. Eric Carle saw the post he would be honored to have you create something similar that helps others. As Cheryl and Lynn say don't take stock in what that individual said just delete it.
Love your come back with the emojis too. Way to go!
I'm missing my mojo too and trying other things to start it up again. Sigh, not so easy when all I want to do is watch tv. hahaha! "wink" 'wink"

Someone had to go pretty far back for that post, but personally I think Eric Carle would have been honored to have been your inspiration! *happy face*
The book is adorable and keeps with the theme of his book.
*snarly face* Buggers to the nay sayers.

I've lost my mojo too, but I blame mine on Netflix because of binge watching too many shows. Hours and hours of SOA, Orange is the New Black, and Breaking Bad has left me wide-eyed and still in shock....along with a whole new set of language skills! LOL!

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!

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…

I wheelie like you!

Hello!  I started making some Valentine's Day cards for my shop.  I love Lawn Fawn stamps and their punny sayings!  So I used a bunch of their stamps recently.  And I totally thought I would be good and not get anything from their new release but those dies!  I want the Fancy Box and the Scalloped Box Card Pop up! 

Here is one of the cards I've made recently using Lawn Fawn's Wheelie Like You set.  I had to do some selective stamping to stamp the Wheelie three times and in red.  I use a small post it and cover up the words I do not want to be inked up.  Then I remove the post its and stamp only the word I want.

Here's a close up.  I fussy cut the little guinea pig out and adhered him onto the wheel.  Wait, he is a guinea pig, right?  Could he also be a hamster?

Well, hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.  We had an incredible day of traffic yesterday!  My husband and daughter were stuck on the road for about 5 hours.  If you live on Oahu, you know what I'm talking a…
