all my heart

Hi!  Hmm, ever feel kind of uninspired?  Or maybe too overwhelmed to create?  Sometimes there are so many cute stamps I want to color up or so many fun challenges I want to participate in that I can't get myself to pick one and get started.  I knew I wanted to participate in Anyone for Anya's Girly Girl Challenge and to use the current TGF sketch 13 at SCS but I don't know if I absolutely love what I created.  Oh well.

I decided to use TGF's Daisy since I hadn't even trimmed her yet.  I know, I still have a few more to use that are still untrimmed.  I do love how bright-eyed she is.  Oh, and while I was coloring her, I thought her hair reminded me of Kate from Jon & Kate Plus 8.  You know, it's all flat in the front but really poofed up in the back.  I was really sad when they got a divorce.  I mean, poor babies!  Anyway, I slapped on some flowers and heart rhinestones I picked up from Walmart.  They had lots of different shaped/colored ones so I picked up a few.  It's too hard to decide which one NOT to buy so I buy at least one of every style.  Hehe.

Yeah, I like her, she's a cutie.  You know what other show I'm kind of addicted to?  Long Island Medium.  It's so fascinating.  I mean, wow, how does she know all that stuff and to communicate with the dead?  Kind of creepy but neat at the same time.  Plus she has a really likable personality, I think.

Anyway, I don't think I talked much about crafting in this post.  Haha.  But thanks for reading anyway!

Cute card for feeling uninspired! Nice coloring of Daisy! Love all the flowers. I think I'm not even motivated to make anything if I don't have a specific occasion in mind. I keep missing my TV shows, I always have to watch them online, was Revenge on last night?

Haaaa Ha! Totally Kate! And you totally rocked her hair, it looks fab! (at least she doesn't have a bad dye job!) I am really in love with this card! I just used these colors last night too on a Wryn, you'll see it later.

I've caught a few of those shows, I love that kind of stuff, so fascinating! I also was completely dumb-founded watching the new reality show about Gypsy weddings, what the???? Crazy people out there!

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.
