Hi Again! I didn’t even give you time to miss me 🙂 I’m feeling a bit better today. I can actually taste food so that means as soon as I finish this blog post there will be taco dip, yummy, yummy taco dip, eaten by me. Advocare All In starts Monday so this is my Last Hurrah!

I’m trying to work through some of my older SSS card kits that I’ve had and use them with some of the great new stamps sets that I’ve gotten (so I can justify buying more of course). The Cat’s Pajamas current challenge is Anything Goes–TCPTUES305! I used the Wreath Building Kit stamp set for the Greetings banner and sprig.

One of my goals for this year is to try and send more Happy Mail. We all have SO many cards we make and it’s wonderful to get fun mail just because. Because of that, a lot of the cards I’m making this year are either going to be birthday or just a “Hi”, “Hello” or “Greetings” sentiment so this is perfect! Now…TACO DIP!

I love color challenges to help me put colors together that I wouldn’t think of. These are SO Springy and I need a little of that right now here in WI.

Wish TCP Color Challenge by Crafting{without}Kids

I used the Wish stamp set from The Cat’s Pajamas. I love the little bunny. He’s so fun to paper piece.

I made a fluffy little bunny tail for him with heated Liquid Appliqué. My Stickles gave him a sparkly star to wish upon and Wink of Stella added sparkle to his nose.

I’ve said it before, but I really like using sketches. Having a slightly restrictive guideline really helps me. This time I went for an even more challenging experience and combined a sketch from the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge with a theme and inspiration photo from The Cat’s Pajamas.

Tuesday Morning Sketch #272

Here’s my combined interpretation.

Tuesday sketch and TCP Halloween card by Crafting{without}Kids

I caught Jack!

I used the basic sketch to make a Halloween card. Instead of the star that is supposed to be caught by the bunny in the Wish stamp set, I added a little pumpkin and paper pieced his fancy moon.  I thought the hanging down pumpkin mimicked the ornaments falling in the second inspiration picture from TCP.  Of course, I needed to stickle his nose and the pumpkin! 🙂 The sentiment is from one of my favorite Tim Holtz sets called Simple Sayings.

Happy Happy Bunny Birthday!

My good friend George just had a birthday. I’m working on this whole getting things done on time thing, but…yeah. I’m not quite there yet. But since he’s known me longer than any of my other friends, I’m pretty sure he’s used to it 🙂 Here’s his card!

CAKE!!!!

CAKE!!!!

I know the colors are not traditional cake colors, but it sure looks delicious to me! It’s hard to see, but it sure is shiny! Here’s a closeup so you can see some of the shimmer.

Oooooo Shiny!

Oooooo Shiny!

The popped-up bunny is over the cake I colored completely with Smooch Inks. There aren’t enough candles on the cake, but I think that’s ok 🙂
