Thank You, Teacher

Hi!  Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!  Our kids were so very excited.  They unwrapped all their gifts but are still in the process of opening and playing with each of their new toys.  I even got to venture out and do some after-Christmas sale shopping.  Maybe I should have just stayed home but I really wanted to take advantage of the sale at Hallmark.  I love to collect those ornaments.  I had to do some squeezing in at the store cause it was really crowded.  After just a handful of stores, I was ready to come home.  I remember the days I could walk the entire mall and spend my whole day there.  That is not the case these days.

Just a simple card to share today.  It was for one of my daughter's teachers.  Stamp is from Claudia & Co. called School Time Lucy.  She's a cutie!

Well, I'm gonna get to some cleaning and organizing so I can start crafting again.  Thanks for reading and have a great week!

Cute card and stamp! I guess I never looked too closely at that brand before. I went to Hallmark too! I was hoping there would be the Yoda and Capt Rex I saw on the website, but had to settle for Where the Wild Things Are. I think I went overboard with the girl ornaments.

Whoa, you are brave to face the after Christmas crowds. I didn't step one foot in any mall yesterday, lol. Even though I do have to make some toy returns, lol. Your card is adorable and that image is cute!

I used to venture to the mall to get wrapping paper at 50% off...not anymore! Love your card--super cute image and I love the chalkboard paper.

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.

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
