Hi! I am back. I haven't been in my craft room too much since it is a bit chilly in there! We are experiencing some really cold weather here and I do NOT like it! I've also been learning a new craft. My DH bought me a Knifty Knitter for Christmas and I've been playing with it a bit. I made a scarf, but I don't think it's worthy of display!! If I make anything I'm proud of, I'll post it, but I think I'm going to need a bit more practice! I've also signed myself up for a crochet class. I'm a little worried since I have no experience with crochet, but I really want to learn how to do some of those little flowers and I wouldn't mind some of those half finger gloves (useful in my chilly room-LOL!). Anyway, here is a card I finally finished making for my mom and dad to say thank you for the gift cards they sent my kids for Christmas. The most difficult part was getting my kids to sit still long enough to take a picture!! I really like the easel cards, and I thought this would be perfect for them to display a picture of their grandkids who they haven't seen in 2 years! Not much Cricut, the "thank you" and the oval are cut from Beyond Birthdays. The paper is from the SEI Bissette pad I got at Michael's on clearance. I used the MS loop corner punch which I really love and I added some jewels and stickles. I inked the edges with some walnut stain distress ink and I added a little dimension with brown foam so you really can't see it on the card(love that idea- did I get that from you Donna?). Sorry for the poor photography, I am no photographer!! Hope you like it and thanks for looking.

  1. Could have been. You know me and my dimensionals. LOL It really does disappear when the color matches. Fabulous thank you and what a lovely family! Have to laugh about the fingerles sgloves. We lived in an old, cold, drafty Victorian for 13 years and I wore fingerless gloves while doing my counted cross stitch. You'll enjoy the knitting AND crocheting. Wish I could find my needles and hooks. xxD


Glad to hear from you!
