Wagon Full of Love

This is a little easel card I made for my daughter.  It's the first time I've used Pure Innocence stamps.  I thought this one was so cute with her little wagon and so perfect for the occasion.  My daughter has been working so hard to participate in her school's Lego Robotics team.  They practice endlessly and she's given up lots of free time and had to give up swimming and participating in this season's tennis league.  But she loves to go to the lego practices.  She almost gave it all up because she was so afraid of public speaking.  They have to make an oral presentation to a small group of judges this Saturday.  She had quit but one of her coaches asked her to reconsider and I'm so happy that she did.  I think she is glad she stuck with it too.  She's practiced so much and in front of so many different people that it's becoming less scary to speak.  I know her team will do well this Saturday and hopefully will make it to the state finals. 

Well, back to the card.  These little animals in the wagon are so stinkin' cute, I can't stand it.

The sentiment is just so perfect.  I used PTI's mat stack die and placed little rhinestones in the corners.

Hopefully, she'll like the card.  I tried to make it as purple as possible since that is her favorite color. 

And I'm so happy there are teachers and coaches like the one who asked my daughter to reconsider.  She was so supportive and understanding of my daughter's fears.  Whether they make it to the finals or not, she and the rest of the team have already learned and accomplished so much. 

Thanks for reading and have a great day!

Your easel cards are so cute! I gotta try one, one of these days. The sky looks good, great idea for covering the white background, I gotta try that someday too. I bought a whole bunch of distress inks from Michael's when I had a 20% off entire purchase coupon over the veteran's day holiday, but haven't had a chance to use them :( Nice drawing of the sidewalk and grass too! Great practicing! Good luck at the Lego competition!

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.
