metal stamped bookmark

Hello!  I was really trying to be good today and start exercising again but I just could not get my laptop going so that I could watch a show while on my elliptical.  Maybe I was having a bad connection with Netflix but I know my laptop is also old and probably gonna conk out soon.  After about 20 minutes trying to fiddle with this and that, I gave up!  I had my shoes on and everything!  Oh well, maybe tomorrow.

Today's post is so fun for me.  It's more metal stamping but this time on actual metal instead of wood.

This is an aluminum bookmark that I stamped for my daughter.  It's a little smudgy looking after she used it.  I should've taken a picture before I gave it to her when it was all nice and polished.  I even stamped her name on the bottom but I smudged it on here.  I made 2 small purple pom poms too for fun.  

Here is a close up of the quote I stamped.  Funny?  I messed up a bit on the heart on the bottom but that is why I need practice.  But overall I'm pretty happy with how this turned out considering it was my first metal project.  It does require a lot more elbow grease to polish and do the stamping than paper crafts but the outcome of the project is so worth it.

I don't think I have another project to share after this.  I'm trying to recover from a cold and so my crafting has slowed down as well.  Hopefully I'll have more to share soon!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Oh that sentiment is very appropriate for most kids today. Love the way the bookmark turned out. Thanks for sharing a good idea.

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!
