The Greeting Farm Snuggle and Ian

Hello Friends! Good evening to you all! I made these two cards today and just now found the time to post my cards!

I think this image from the Greeting Farm is one of my favorite. Well, I actually have a lot of favorites but "Snuggle" is definitely one of them. She looks so content hugging her bunny. So cute! My goal for this card was to use a my designer papers that were in my scrap pile.

Hey. .guess where we're heading this weekend? We're spending 3 days in Disneyland! Yipee. Actually, it's my cousin's high school graduation party on Friday and the party will be in LA so we decided to make it a combined Disneyland trip! The drive to LA is about an hour 1/2 and my husband didn't want to drive home at night.

This is going to sound terrible but I didn't invite them to my daughter's graduation party. Why? Well, first of all. . .in this one family alone, the total guests would be twenty which includes my cousins, their wives/husbands and their kids. And. . .if I invite them, then I have to invite the others.

Okay. . .the plan for my daughter's graduation party was more of an intimate gathering of her friends and they were plenty enough.

Asians like to throw big parties. . .in Hawaii. . .my goodness, a child's first birthday is a grand affair . . almost like a wedding! LOL! There's too many family members that you cannot invite or there will be hurt feelings. Furthermore, Asian families are "close". . .we all stick together. . .if you invite one, you have to invite them all. Ugggh! My daughter was like "nooooo, I don't want a huge party".

I know how she feels. I remember one Christmas when we were still living in Hawaii, we had relatives that flew down during the holidays from the mainland US and my cousin called and said that she was throwing a small get together. When we got there. . .my goodness there were over 50 of us. Can you imagine 50 guest in your house? It was fun but a small get together is actually, a big together.

Are you from a big family. . .and I mean family that you see regularly? Not see once every 10 years. LOL!
Anyway. . .scroll down to check out my second card.

Card Details:

Stamps: The Greeting Farm Snuggle
Paper: Various dp, SU More Mustard, Certainly Celery
Ink: Copic Markers
Accessories: SU Ticket Corner Punch, Nestabilities, SU Heart to Heart Punch, Embroidery Floss, Satin Ribbon, JoAnn Brads

Okay. . .Check out the Greeting Farm "Ian". He is such a cool dude, don't you think? His surfer outfit is from the Wardrobe #2 set and Ian is from the Dress Me set. The waves on my card is actually a wave design from a DCWV designer paper. I just cut the waves out and layered them.

Anyway. . .stop by the Greeting Farm and check these really cute images! They're fun to color!

Well, I hope y'all have a wonderful Tuesday!

Maria these cards are just awesome. And your coloring is fantastic.. When I go home to Va. where all my family lives, there are so many of us it takes 4 house's to have Thanks giving.

Wow Maria! Both of your cards are wonderful. I am partial to the snuggle stamp. It is so adorable. I love the way that you colored her hair. Your coloring is always goregous on all of your cards.

I hope that you have lots of fun at Disney World. Oh and I have a very small family. After reading what you wrote about coming from a large family, I'm kind of happy that I have small family. Kind of.:)
