Tania Baking

I found these large tags on my last shopping spree and they are the perfect size for a few of my settlements. I originally colored this adorable girl for the kitchen scene posted on Monday but forgot to check the scale and discovered she was too tall. So with her already colored this was a quick card to make.

Did you know? A diacritic is an ancillary glyph added to a letter, or basic glyph. The main use of diacritics in the Latin alphabet is to change the sound value of the letter to which they are added. Examples from English are the diaeresis in naïve and Noël, which show that the vowel with the diaeresis mark is pronounced separately from the preceding vowel; the acute and grave 'accents', which indicate that a final vowel is to be pronounced, as in saké and poetic breathèd, and the cedilla under the "c" in the loaned French word façade, which shows it is pronounced /s/ rather than /k/.

Baking with Nana

Welcome to Grandma's kitchen where she's always happy to make you a batch of goodness while sharing stores. ;D I made this card using Baking with Nana from Belles 'n Whistles and the Kitchen Isle and Kitchen Wall set from Make it Crafty.


I made this card for Challenge #9 at Make it Colourful where the theme is to color shine. I attempted to the color the kitchen first starting with the stainless steel elements. The smaller areas were easy but I it became difficult on the larger areas, such as the refrigerator.


The kitchen set comes with the two images separated which makes it versitle. I chose to use them independently then to create a flap for the card on the front so the isle could be moved. The flap was attached with a strip of folded paper and can open all the way.


Here's the inside of the card with the flap open which shows the back wall of the kitchen and Grandma cooking. The tag is large enough to write a small sentiment or a card can be attached to the back for more writing.


Here's one last view showing just the front part of the card/flap in the open position. The Prima flower was colored with Copic markers and the Make it Crafty laser cut swirls are covered with Liquid Pearls.

Did you know? A schooner is a type of sailing vessel characterized by the use of fore-and-aft sails on two or more masts with the forward mast being no taller than the rear masts. According to the 1911 Encyclopedia Britannica, the first vessel called a schooner was built by builder Andrew Robinson and launched in 1713 from Gloucester, Massachusetts. Legend has it that the name was the result of a spectator exclaiming "Oh how she scoons", scoon being similar to scon, a Scots word meaning to skip along the surface of the water. Robinson replied, "A schooner let her be." According to Walter William Skeat, the term schooner comes from scoon, while the sch spelling comes from the later adoption of the Dutch and German spellings ("Schoner").

Sweet Love

Welcome to the 2nd Challenge at Make it Colourful and this week's challenge is to use red!
I made this card using an Elisabeth Bell stamp Sweet Love from Belles 'n Whistles and behind it Lovers Pavilion from Make It Crafty. I used lots of reds and pinks to accent this Valentines card.


Here's another view of the gorgeous pavilion which was so much fun to color. This was my second time working on the image and I think it turned out so much better. I like the blue sky without the clouds and the white pavilion is more romantic with this card.

Did you know? There are about 2,500 species of cicada around the world and they exist on all continents except Antarctica. Some cicadas produce sounds up to 120 dB "at close range", among the loudest of all insect-produced sounds. The name is a direct derivation of the Latin cicada, meaning "buzzer". They live underground as nymphs for most of their lives and emerge only when adults, which in some species is every 13 or 17 years.

Tom's Plea

GIVE THANKS ... THREE WAYS
Jump down to see Cassandra's Thank You and Lydia's Thank You cards.

Sometimes sharing my supplies is difficult but I'm always thankful that my daughters want to stamp and color with me. I cringe each time they "discover" something new (solely because of the pocket book) but at the same time I'm thrilled they were able to watch me and learn something new! In the split second it takes me to decide, I usually buckle in and let them create freely... because in the end, I really am thankful! So check out their cards below and they'll be reading any comments left personally for them.

I made my card using Tom's Plea from High Hopes. The sign originally read "Go Vegan" but I removed it from the stamp so I could write anything. Each of our cards was entered into the 7 Kids College Fund Give Thanks challenge.


Cassandra used Harvest Mice from High Hopes and created this thank you card for her Nana and Poppy. She's been spending all week with me recovering from tonsillectomy and even though she's in a little pain it's been fun having her stay home from school. She did all the coloring and assembly herself and only wanted help cutting out the image. She even used foam dots to "make it more beautiful!"


Lydia got to use Belles 'n Whistles Rockin' Around by Elisabeth Bell to make her thank you card. We've been spending more time at Grandma's house helping out and the added bonus to playing in her craft room! She selected all the elements and put together the card all by herself (with help cutting out the image) and left the girl uncolored because "it makes her pretty."

Did you know? A tonsillectomy is a 3,000 year-old surgical procedure in which the tonsils are removed from either side of the throat. Sometimes the adenoids are removed at the same time, a procedure called adenoidectomy. Although tonsillectomy is being performed less frequently than in the 1950s, it remains one of the most common surgical procedures in children in the United States.
