Hi, I'm not even gonna say it ...

Just ignore that I haven't posted anything in a while.  Not gonna even dwell on it.

Anyway, in case there are some people that still read my blog, Hello!  Thought I'd pop in and see what blogland is up to these days and quickly share something that I finished making a few weeks ago.

I found this wonderful crochet pattern of Snorlax HERE.  Snorlax is a Pokemon in case you were in doubt or wondering.  It's probably one of the best patterns I've found of Snorlax so I had to try to make it since my boys love Pokemon.

I made mine a little bit differently by using felt for the stomach instead of crocheting that.  I used 2 layers of felt because I could actually see through it a bit when I used one.  I placed the felt on his body and kind of guessed the size and shape and cut it out.  Then I sewed both layers of felt onto his body.  His teeth are also small pieces of felt that I had glued.   And his arms stick out forward a bit instead of downwards.

Here's another view of him.  He is laying down with a donut that I sewed from felt.  I sewed his arms on more forward so the donut could hang on his arm.

I have been crocheting a bit more these days.  It's hard though to play with yarn when the weather is so humid.  Ugh. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and reading about my Snorlax.

You are so multi-talented Eva. Snorlax is so kawai'i. Love the aqua/teal color ABD the yummy looking donut he's holding.

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!

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…

I wheelie like you!

Hello!  I started making some Valentine's Day cards for my shop.  I love Lawn Fawn stamps and their punny sayings!  So I used a bunch of their stamps recently.  And I totally thought I would be good and not get anything from their new release but those dies!  I want the Fancy Box and the Scalloped Box Card Pop up! 

Here is one of the cards I've made recently using Lawn Fawn's Wheelie Like You set.  I had to do some selective stamping to stamp the Wheelie three times and in red.  I use a small post it and cover up the words I do not want to be inked up.  Then I remove the post its and stamp only the word I want.

Here's a close up.  I fussy cut the little guinea pig out and adhered him onto the wheel.  Wait, he is a guinea pig, right?  Could he also be a hamster?

Well, hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.  We had an incredible day of traffic yesterday!  My husband and daughter were stuck on the road for about 5 hours.  If you live on Oahu, you know what I'm talking a…
