thirteen!

Hello!  My daughter turned into a teenager one morning!  We recently celebrated her 13th birthday.  She didn't want a big production over turning 13 even though I thought maybe she'd like to have a dinner or something with a few close friends.  But she's very low key and much like us, a homebody so she didn't want to do anything special except have cheesecake for dessert.  It was a yummy cheesecake!

As usual, I made my traditional bookmark birthday card.

I turned this one into a shaker card too.  I was able to order the foam adhesive sheets from PTI which made it much easier to make this.  And I finally caved and bought this stamp set from Mama Elephant.  I love this set cause they are so cute!  I used the smaller version of the animals for this bookmark.  I was really tempted to buy the matching dies but it is so expensive to buy matching dies for every stamp set!  But it is convenient.  I ended up fussy cutting these out.

Here is a close up of the cute guys!

Sometimes I feel like I'm splitting in a few different directions because I want to do so many different crafts from paper crafts to crocheting and sewing and I even bought resin supplies!  Haven't quite started with that yet but soon.  I need a much larger crafting table and area!

Thanks so much for visiting and leaving such nice comments!

Yowza....13, cheese cake and a shaker card?! I've got to say this card is a winner with the adorable animals. I've got to check out Mama Elephant...I'm not familiar with them (yet!)

That is a gorgeous birthday card and it's a shaker AND bookmark too!!! Can you be my mother? I know what you mean about wanting to try different crafting mediums. Some days I fear that something will fall over in my craftroom and I'll be buried alive. It's a good thing that Mama Elephant dies and stamps take up just a little space. ;D

Hey Eva!
Aww, Happy Birthday to your daughter! This is adorable!! Those Mama Elephant stamps are cute and I'm trying to resist buying them. I have eyed the pandas tho and might cave. hahaha. Wowee love how you did this.
you should look in to wood work and make your own table. I'm sure you'd be awesome at it. :)

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!
