a bit of this and that

Hello!  I have a little bit of this and that to share today.  Thought I'd jam everything into one post in case I don't get a chance to share them later. 

Here are some of the Mama Elephant reindeer shaker tags I made.  I sold some at the last fair but I should've take a photo of all 24 together before selling them!  I think these are about the cutest reindeer ever.  If only I can get my hands on the dies soon, I can make more projects with these.

Here is another set of tags.  I added red stars in some shakers and then green stars in others.  I think the green stars were more popular and sold better.  Did you see that Mama Elephant is releasing a new stamp set with the Chinese zodiac animals?  The set is so cute and I can't wait to get those.

I made some graduation cards too using Sister Stamps Graduate stamp. 

Green is the school color of the university here.

And lastly, I made this necklace the other day with the symbol/kanji for beautiful.  This one is already spoken for.  I've been selling some sterling silver jewelry mostly at fairs but I am wanting to add jewelry back into my Etsy store. 

I also stamped some initials.  These would look cute on the chain as well.  I stamped these for my daughter's friends but they will be hanging on some bracelets instead.  Cute and simple Christmas presents.  I'm also waiting on some metal bookmark and keychain supplies and hopefully I'll have those at the next fair as well.  Seems like my crafty to do list is getting longer.

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!

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…
