❤ You

Hi!  Life is as crazy as ever.  I wanted to post this morning before we took our kids to a local carnival but didn't get a chance to.  At least we still made it to the carnival.  Same yummy food every year especially malasadas and Portuguese bean soup!  The kids had fun on rides and playing games. 

I made a little card for TGF's Monday Funday #18--Key to my heart.  It was inspired by the word card tutorial over at SCS except I ended up not making it exactly like a word card.

I decided not to cut around the letters like in the tutorial and just made this into like an accordion style fold.  I cut out a felt heart for the middle of the O using MFT's heart die.

This image is a combination of TGF's Megan and Birthday Ian.  I wiped away the letters on the banner, paper pieced it and added felt hearts.

Still trying to use all the stamps I've been neglecting.  So far I'm doing well with my no new stamps diet.

Now I'm wondering what I should do with all these cards I'm making.  I know you can donate them and usually I give them to my cousin who gives them to her friends.  I'm thinking about just having my hubby take them to his work place and donate them to his coworkers.  What do you do with all your cards??

Thanks for reading!

This is soooo cute, Eva! I don't even know how you put that banner on her, but it's fantastic! I love the folds and the big letters. Really great job!

I took some of the cards I had left over at the end of the year and put them into a tin as a gift for my mother-in-law. I don't really know what to do with all of mine either, but I can't stop making them! I am actually trying to get caught up on my girls' scrapbooks, and hopefully that will keep my card pile down to a minimum.(probably not.)

Adorable as ever, Eva! Love your coloring and the accordion style! Sounds like you had a blast at the carnival! I use some of my cards or my DH does. The ones really specific to the image are tougher - I usually send some of those to my crafty blog friends who "get it" kwim? LOL.

Another cute card! Cute banner and neat idea with the big YOU. Awww, I miss those malasadas, now that you mention it!

Super cute! Love the accordion card and the colors! I usually run outta cards! But that's because I have tons of co-workers! And I also am in charge for making cards at work - whether it's for a patient or a co-worker w/ a big life event (wedding, new baby, sympathy). I suggest you donate them to a school or a hospital or convalescent home. I also send them to a few bloggy friends I've gotten 'close' to over the years (*ahem*) :).

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

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

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.
