My crocheted blankets

Hello!

I had a few emails and a couple of comments from my last post asking about my blankets.
They aren't perfect and I only taught myself how to crochet in February.

It's definitely something I can just sit down and do in the evenings while watching tv.

This is my first one. Which turned out to be quite large. All done in half double crochet.

My next one I just randomly changed colours and is double crocheted. Not quite as wide as my first.

My last one was done super quick. I have it draped over my legs here. 

Thanks for looking! 
I'll be back tomorrow with my SCS sketch card :)

Hope Your Birthday is Sprinkled with Everything Great

Hi!

Since I took up a new hobby(crocheting) I am finding it harder and harder to find a balance between stamping and making blankets lol

I'm still stamping but last week was out of town for work and didn't have a chance to post my SCS sketch card.

Here I've used some new to me goodies.
The fun Cool Treats stamp set and matching dies.

Have a Lovely Birthday

Hello!

This week I went bold with my birthday card for the SC636.

I can remember a time I couldn't create a card without pattern paper and now I rarely reach for it.
Partly because I don't have as much access to paper here. No scrapbook stores :(

I do have a new SU! order due in on Thursday and there is some paper coming! Yeah!
Can't wait to get busy this weekend.

Anyway, here is my card created as a sample for SCS.
I used my favourite Reverse Confetti butterflies and dies!
Stamps: Reverse Confetti, MFT
Paper: White, Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana
Ink: Coastal Cabana, Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, Black
Accessories: Sewing, White Brads, Paper Piercer, Reverse Confetti Butterfly Dies, Dimensionals

Happy Birthday FMS277

Hello 😄

Since I still had trees on my mind I decided to pull out this SU! set to create a quick CAS card for the Freshly Made Sketch #277.

As I've said before, I'm making a birthday card for all my employees this year(which is well over 200). Sometimes it means a quick and simple card as time isn't always on our side these days.

This sketch was perfect for it!

Out on a Limb

Happy Wednesday!!!

Today I'm sharing my card that was created for the Splitcoast Sketch #634.
It was a fantastic sketch that allowed me to pull out an old favourite from MFT.

Out on a Limb and matching die was a go to fave of mine several years ago.
So many possibilities with the circles or leaves. 
I'll have to create another card shortly using the leaves.

Back in the saddle!

Hello!

I'm back. Sorry!
I'll definitely be posting at least once a week now.
I was asked to join the Splitcoast sketch crew for the next several months so I'll have a card to share each Wednesday!
Plus this year I'm making a birthday card for every colleague at work. With over 220 people in the store that's a LOT of crafting time for me. We are two months in and I've made several already! It's a fabulous feeling to give and to see their faces that something unique was made for them :)

Hellooooooooo :)

Happy December 1st!

These past few months have been super busy for me. I have been creating I just didn't have the time to post any cards.
Thought I'd just load some of my favourites here. I always upload my cards to my SCS album and you can find them all there with details to each card.

But first I want to share a proud Mom moment. 
In Chloe's final year of high school she was in their musical Grease playing Marty and sang a solo Freddie My Love. She was fabulous!
Here is a picture of her(on the right) with some of her cast mates and little fans :)

Sunshine :)

Hi!
ahhhhh vacation/time off work is awesome!
We've had some great weather, family time and stamping time! 
Next Monday will come quickly :(

Until then I'll stamp as much as I can!

Here is a card I created last weekend using the Color Throwdown Challenge from last week.

It's a fairly quick CAS card.
I embossed the cloud background on white and popped up some butterflies from Reverse Confetti.
The Sunshine was die cut from SU(4x) and I brushed some Wink of Stella on it for a little sparkle ;)
Stamps: Butterfly Dreams
Paper: White, Pool Party
Ink: Pool Party, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade
