Hi!  I spent the weekend crafting like crazy trying to finish up 3 cards for TGF's Customer Challenge and Chit Chat Night on SCS.  The theme was music and the challenges were to create a project inspired by a favorite song, favorite music video, and a favorite lyric.  So because I don't know how to just pick one and because I love these kinds of challenges, I had to do them all.  Hehe.

First up is one of my current favorite songs.  I've only recently heard it on the radio and didn't know who sang it so I did a search of it on You tube.  It's called Lucky and I was so surprised that it was sang by Jason Mraz cause I'm not that big a fan of his other songs.  Lucky is a duet with the female part sang by Colbie Caillat who I've never heard of.  Yeah, I'm so not with it.  My card is based on the video.  See HERE

I used TGF's Dressy Edward digi and Fancy Anya.  I think Edward looks pretty stylish and so does Fancy.

Please tell me you know who this is!  This card is for a favorite video.  Technically it's inspired by Adele's Grammy performance and not really an official video. 

I altered TGF's Nurse Anya.  I took away her nurse cap and her tray.  I gave her a scoop neck dress and shiny belt and heels.  And she's holding a broken heart in her hand. 

This is a little corner bookmark which was inspired by Fun's We Are Young.  This one is for a favorite lyric.  I had seen a graduating class sing that song and thought it was such a fun song to perform at graduation.  So I took the most inspirational part of the lyrics and added that to the bookmark.  I gave this to my daughter since she just graduated from 5th grade.  I don't think she knows this song.  You can see the video HERE.  The cute image is TGF's Grad Anya.  I also added a fun tassel in my daughter's school colors.

And so now I'm super pooped.  After finishing these up this morning, I had this urge to clean.  Even though I already had 3 loads of laundry to do, I decided to clean the inside of the fridge and the bathroom.  What exactly possessed me to do that, I can't explain.  It's just a strong urge sometimes. 

Oh, and Happy Father's Day!  I was able to keep my hubby's card hidden til today.  So I guess he doesn't read my blog! 

Thanks for reading!

Super cute cards! Great songs! I don't think I even knew about the chat night, not that I would be able to even make anything that fast. Love your Adele, totally looks like her! I can see you don't watch Glee. That's where I heard those 2 songs first! And the Adele song I heard on last season's the voice. So strange that I hear the cover version on TV first.

These are great Eva!
My favorite one is the Adele one. It just screams her. You are fast becoming the altering queen, i like that! :)
Thanks for playing with the CNN Music Challenges.

Ps. Im surprised the school let the graduating class sing the We Are Young song(it talks about abuse with a little bit of drugs mixed in for fun) but i understand, the title/chorus is very catchy and makes you forget about the rest of it.

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.
