Love ...

Hi!  Today's a new day.  I realize that I am not only a stress eater but a stress cleaner!  I finished off the chocolate covered almonds from Costco (I shared some too!) and managed to clean all our bedrooms, sheets, fans, carpets and did all the laundry too.  But I had to stop vacuuming because our vacuum just shuts off by itself.  It's been doing that everyday.  I vacuum a room and then it shuts off by itself!  Frustrating.  We need a new one.

Well, I did manage to finish a card!  TGF is now having sketch challenges over at SCS!

I chose to use TGF's Flutter Anya.  I haven't used this stamp very much so thought I'd give her some attention.  I've been trying to use stamps that I haven't even inked up yet before buying even more stamps.  My hubby said this card looked very busy.  I guess he is a clean and simple kind of card guy but sometimes I like to really embellish my cards.

I chose to color her in varying shades of red for iCopic's weekly challenge #67 -- red love.  I added some glitter to her wings.  I actually used some of my son's glitter glue and stickles.  There's some glossy accents on the hearts on her wings.  I added a love charm and a heart die cut from PTI's tiny tags.  The butterflies are from Martha Stewart and the leaves are also from PTI.

I'll also be entering this into Flutter By Wednesday challenge #188.

Thanks for reading!

Cute!!! This was one of the first TGF stamps I bought, I still like her a lot! Love her red outfit! Cute white accents! Nice take on the sketch. Cute embellishments! I think I need to use more of mine, now I'm accumulating way too many, I will use your stickpins one of these days... Wow, you cleaned a lot. I think I can only clean in small doses.

We must be on the same wave-length. I vacuumed, mopped, washed all throw rugs, baked, and sorted all my pics so I can get caught up on my scrapbooking. And yes, I too had a little too much chocolate today.

That being said, I can't believe you had time to do this fantastic card!! I think it's just perfect. I stopped asking my hubby his opinion, and now I only ask my 7 year old. ;) I love the paper too, just bought some myself a few weeks ago.

We're over half way through the week!!!
I was the opposite of you, while you did the indoors I did the outdoors - which was mowing the lawn, racking and pruning... Thursday is my day to do the indoors chores....
BTW love your Anya card, I have those bg papers too.....pretty flowers and teeny butterflies....
Hi Eva - this is really cute! I love the blue outline around her...she really pops off the page. The colouring is fab aswell :)

So adorable, Eva! And i love the spray of flowers & butterflies! Too busy? I don't think men are comfortable with different patterns, lol! Your card is perfect!

Fabulous card. The use of the Stickles and your son's glitter glue (I had to giggle at that one)are so perfect and that flower spray is divine! Thank you so much for joining us at iCopic Lovers this week. :)

Just gorgeous! Yay for doing something different and using up your embellies! Love that you used your son's art supplies - Flutter Anya came out wonderfully! Wish I was a stress cleaner too!

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.
