You Can Always Lean On Me


Hi!  Well I know I said I'd only be entering one time but I did end up making one more card for the Innovation category of MFT's Challenge.  I had wanted to do something with magnets because my kids have these tiny magnets in their bead box.  I think they are for making bracelets so I grabbed couple of them.  I wasn't sure what I was making but then thought of something the other night.  These magnets are oval in shape and they have a hole in the middle to thread string, I think.

This is the card I made featuring Birdie Brown's Happy Hedgehogs.  Love, love, love Birdie Brown's images and cards!  I did some masking with the larger hedgehog to sit on the log which I also lengthened.  I used the stitched border background again from Blueprints 25.  The yellow sun is cut from the Stitched Arched dies and I blended with distress oxide.

Also used the mini cloud stencil to blend in the background using distress oxide.  Under the log I used the skinniest fishtail flag die to create an opening.  I wanted to create some movement but not show all the openings.

Here's a close up of them sitting apart.  You might notice something sticking out from under the yellow sun.

When you pull on the tab, the smaller hedgehog slides over and clicks to the larger one because I used the magnets underneath them.  The magnet under the large hedgehog is stationary and I tied some thin fishing line to the other magnet under the smaller hedgehog through the hole that it had.  The sentiment is also stamped onto the tag which is from MFT as well.  The tiny diecut on the tag is from Tag Builders Blueprints 5.

They're so cute together!  You can slide the tag back under and slide the smaller guy back to the right.

This is under all the cute stuff!  Three layers of dimensional tape! 

I made a short little video using my phone.  I had to hold my phone in one hand and pull the tab.   

That is definitely it for me.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

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!
