soccer key chains

Hello!  Thanks everyone for your positive comments!  I guess as long as the kids are happy with their Valentine's Day treats then it's all good.  I've already got something in mind for Easter so can't wait to get started on that. 

Today I wanted to share some key chains I put together for a couple of girls' soccer teams.   I made 17 key chains in total.     

I found this cute ribbon on Etsy and the mom who ordered these key chains loved the ribbon too.  Plus the team color is pink so I think it was a good fit.  Each piece of ribbon is sewed onto some black webbing.  I think I'm getting faster at sewing these!  Yay for practice!  I have some secrets in making these too now that I've made a few, like close to a 100.  So I think these are my best made key chains yet. 

Also made these little soccer hair ties as a small thank you too.  I found the soccer ball pieces on Etsy.  I don't think I say it enough, but I love Etsy!  I literally spend hours just searching various stores.  There is so much to look at!  Each shop is different but I find that in general, shipping is so much faster from these smaller shops than larger craft stores. 

BTW, did you see the new Sister Stamps banner on my sidebar?  Cute, right?  I'll let you know that I've already made my projects for the new upcoming release.  Can't wait to share them in a few weeks!  This list making stuff really works for me in getting stuff done.  Tomorrow, I'm onto a different project.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

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…
