Birthday and Thank Yous

My youngest celebrates his 2nd birthday tomorrow.  How quickly time flies.  Got this cute card from Cheryl.  It has all these interesting folds and I haven't really seen this anywhere so I'm not sure if it has a name or anything.  Maybe she'll blog about it later???

This is how the card opens up.

This is the back side of the card.

The back side also opens up but horizontally.  Isn't that neat?

I really liked how the card opened up so I thought I would make a couple but just a simpler version.
My version just opens in the front.  I love Fleur Anya from TGF.  She is so cute.  I cut the scallop square from felt that I bought at Walmart using my new Big Shot.  I really want to try the wool felt from PTI though so that's on my next order there.  And I do love my Big Shot.  It's so easy to use and my youngest likes to turn the handle with me.  I'm sending this as a Thank You card for Cheryl.  (Sorry, spoiling the surprise).  She was so thoughtful to not only remember my son's birthday but also to give all my kids Disney gift cards while we were at Disneyland!  Really generous.

Opened view.  Yeah, my copics leaked through the paper.

Another angle.

This is the second card I made with Fleur Anya.  I've been meaning to send Jen over at Pieces of Me a Thank You card for all the wonderful blog candy but got sidetracked by our trip.  I don't want her to think I forgot.

That's it for now.  Thanks for reading and have a great day!

Wow, I can't believe you already crafted something. I think I waste too much time watching TV. Thanks for the thank you card! I got Ryan a gift card too, but he wanted to save his and only spend mom's money!

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.
