brown bear ornament

Hi!  Well, koala is on his way to his new home!  I didn't think he'd leave quite as quickly as he did so we'll definitely miss him.  Sometimes it's hard to let go of the things you make by hand.  I'll try to make another but my list of items to remake is getting longer.  Today I'm sharing his friend, brown bear which is also a cute little ornament.

Here's koala and brown bear together.  Brown bear is just a bit smaller than koala.  He has arms and legs and wears the cutest red sweater.  I crocheted him using a pattern from Amy of Little Muggles and the pattern is HERE.  I found the Little Muggles site by accident when I was looking for cute ornaments to make.  He is really round and cute!

You can prop him up to stand on his legs with some wiggling but he might topple over.  He is pretty lightweight. 

He also comes with a tag for gift giving.  The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn and fits pretty perfectly.

His nose is felt with a little black stitch.  The nose and felt inner ears are hot glued on.

One of the cutest things about him is his red and white sweater!  And his little arms!  Here's a backside view.

He has a red ribbon to hang on the tree too.  My kids love this guy so much.  More so than the koala for some reason so they found it hard to believe that he didn't sell first!  I have to tuck away my crocheted pieces so the kids don't handle them too much.  Maybe I'll make one for our tree too.

I also listed a bunch of 2018 calendars last night!  I hope the listings make sense.  I usually try not to list items at night when I'm tired but wanted to get things crossed off my to do list.  I'll share details about each calendar at a later time but you can head to shop for a sneak peek if you're curious.

Thanks so much 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!

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…
