pinky birthday favors

Hello!  I have to get started on chores so this will be a quick post.  My sister in law recently celebrated her 50th birthday so there was a surprise party and we made favors too.

I thought about what I could make in a short amount of time.  To make me feel less stressed I thought the easiest was to pack up some yummy chocolates.  I printed out the little messages and cut each one out with one of my Spellbinders labels.  Then used some clear bags to pack them but also folded the bags like an accordion to make them fan out.  Thought these would be simple but pretty too.

My hubby even helped out by cutting down this box and wrapping it with the cute Hello Kitty wrapping paper.  I think he was really proud of this so I have to share a photo of it.

We made 60 favors in one night!  All of my kids helped.  They packed the chocolates, helped tape the fans together and my youngest one helped thread the ribbon into the printed labels.  My daughter actually made all the bows using the bow easy after cutting all the ribbon down to size.  My hubby also helped me fold all the bags into fans.  Otherwise I think I would've been up all night.  They were all a big help.

Sometime later this week, I will be listing all The Greeting Farm stamps I will be selling.  So check back if you are interested in that.  I have about half more to list.  

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…

lots and lots of tags!

Hi!  I've been making a lot of tags lately trying to get ready for Christmas and I am finally done.

These were made with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.  I love this set.  It is so cute and funny!

Here is the back of the tags.  I think these would be so fun to put on gifts for children.  They would think the tags are so funny!

Here are the polar bear tags.  I love this polar bear.  His expression is so cute!

This is the back of the polar bears.

I also made more of the tags I had made last year.  So these are all listed in my shop now.  I tried to make a lot at one time because I'm not sure if I'll be making more of these designs this year.  I want to make some newer ones with some of my dies that I have not used yet!  Trying so hard to not buy more than I can use.  Although sometimes that is so difficult!  I was really good in September and did not buy any new Mama Elephant or the cute Bitty Bears from Birdie Brown.  I had such restraint but who knows how long that will last t…
