with Love ❤

Hi!  I was checking out Shirl's blog one day and saw this cute card she made with a cute digi (Canary Love) by Saturated Canary (Krista Smith).  I had seen the stamps around in blogland but I still have to stick to my no new stamps diet.  But Shirl was kind enough to provide the link to the digi in her post and it was free HERE!  So I thought I'd give it a try using the Deconstructed Sketch #37.


I have to say that it was kind of challenging to color all that hair and even to the tiniest ends.  I must be a slow colorer cause it took me part of last night and most of the morning the next day to finish coloring her.  But I like it!

Well, I know the digi is called Canary Love not Bluebird Love and I had the intention of coloring the bird yellow but somehow grabbed the wrong Copic and well, now I have a Bluebird.  But at least he matches her eye color.  I also added some glossy accents to the heart, rose, buttons and the red around her legs.

I even crocheted a little heart.  See HERE if you want to make one too.  It didn't take long, just about 5 minutes and I'm not that experienced in crocheting.  I didn't know what kind of sentiment to add then noticed the name of the DP I was using.  You know, on 12x12 sheets there is that little perforated part you can tear off and it has the paper line and info on it.  That's what I used.

I'm also entering this in iCopic's Weekly Challenge #68--Hearts and

Ribbon Carousel's Challenge 39--Anything Goes.  I realized too late that Saturated Canary also has their own challenges too!  Must check that out one day.

Thanks so much for reading!

Cute card! Beautiful coloring! Yeah, that hair looks complicated, you did a nice job! The bluebird is cute! There was a sale not too long ago at Saturated Canary too, I was debating about getting an image, but then took me so long to decide, and then I got distracted and forgot.
Eva you are just one fantastic blogging buddie.... love it.....
Now wasn't she fun to be coloured?
You did awesome, like how you did her hair the correct way I was to fussy to go in between the spaces so I coloured as one bunch of hair...LOL! and the blue bird is totally cute.... love the colours you used - oh my you are da bomb....
That crochet heart is just too cute now if that was me it probably would of taken me several hours that is one thing I do not have patience for.. he,he...
Have a super Tuesday....

I just got her too! Isn't she something!? Your coloring is gorgeous, and I think her hair looks fantastic!

I need to crochet a few more hearts and flowers. I usually take a day and just spit out as many as I can in one sitting. It's nice when you can make what you want, when you want!

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
