a bright thank you

Hi!  There are so many fun challenges to participate in!  I'm trying to do as much as I can before I get onto some end of the school year stuff.  I'm thinking of making pinwheels attached to pencils but maybe that is too time consuming.  I have just about a week left. 

After making my previous bright card, I saw that Some Odd Girl is having a BRIGHT challenge!  And it'll be on Facebook too.  So I printed out Bookish Tia and had fun coloring her up.  Yeah, I bought her cause of her glasses and her books.  Totally reminds me of my daughter.  Even my daughter thought Bookish Tia was a lot like her so she wants to give this card to her school's librarian. 

I kept the papers (from Doodlebug) pretty simple.  I added some cork borders (PTI die) and used my felt too which I haven't used in quite a while.

The little tag, cork star and circular embellishments are all dies from PTI.  The sentiment is from PTI's Tiny Tags stamp set.

That is it for me!  Thanks so much for reading!

Lovely BRIGHT card! So spring-y too. Wow, you're still going to make end of year gifts? The best I can do is send my older one in with snacks, only because the teacher requested it too! I wonder if I can manage to make a card for the teacher even.

Awesome bright colours Eva! What a great card! Bookish Tia is adorable and I'm thinking this will be the perfect card for the librarian!

Thanks so much for playing along in our Bright Colours Facebook challenge at SOG!

She is tooooo cute! I love your use of bright colors! I can't wait to get mine colored up today. (laid out everything I want to use, last night!) I may have to get her soon!

I hear ya on the end of the school year stuff. I'm trying to think of all the things I like to do without the girls, and get them done before next friday! (so mean, I know.) Nothing beats going to the movies in the middle of a week-day, with nobody there, and your popcorn all to yourself! he he
Wow very pretty Eva! She is done with perfection. love it....

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.
