Pink ribbon

Hi!  I saw that TGF was one of the sponsors for Splitcoast Stampers Hope you can cling to challenges.  They have a whole bunch of challenges listed and will be adding more to benefit breast cancer patients at MD Anderson Cancer Center.  You can read all the details on their forum.  One of the challenges listed is hosted by Beate and is called Encircled with Love (make a circle card).

I knew I wanted to make a card with TGF's Fancy Anya because of the way her hands are apart enough to place a small ribbon between them.  I used my lacey circle nestabilities and tried to just keep it simple and it's blank so the recipient can use it for whatever kind of card they wish to.

Still practicing my pencil coloring using just my kids' pencils.  I also wanted to try the no lines look that I first saw on Carisa's blog.  You can see it HERE.  She did hers with Copics but I'm too chicken to try it with pens so thought I'd ease into it with pencils.  Though I think I shouldn't have outlined her hair so much.  Will try this again though.  I didn't have a really light ink pad so I just used my usual Memento's rich cocoa and stamped it twice to get a lighter shade of brown.  Then started coloring her in with pencils. 

Okay, I really have to start cleaning the house now.  I've procrastinated long enough.

Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!

Hi Eva, Great idea having her hold the ribbon. Oh and the pencil coloring is terrific! Now I'm gonna attack kid's coloring pencils. I love the soft look it gives.
Great job Eva -
Love the simplicity of your round card, the embossing pops it out and great idea with the pencil coloring..... Nothing wrong with using them, it looks fantastic.....

This is beautiful and touching! Love the simple design. What did you think of the stamping with no black lines? It was hard for me. I use Copics but for the facial features, I think I need something softer to draw them in with like color pencils.

Looks like you're having so much fun crafting! This looks beautiful - love the pencil coloring (my pencils are still sitting somewhere unused, haha) and the no lines technique!

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.
