Merry Christmas

I haven't been scrapping lately - crocheting instead.  I had lots of gifts to make.

Here are two cards I made today.  One is for cash and the other is for gift cards.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a crafty new year!  Susan

Christmas Cards

My niece asked me to make Christmas cards for her work to send out.  I thought...hmmmmmm, awful short notice but it's only 25...I can do it.  It took me longer to decide what design I wanted to do than to actually put them together.

I started with a Kraft base and added the white snowflake embossed layer (misted) and then added the small green square with plain white square.  The ribbon and mittens came next.  I did add a little glitter detail on the mittens.  Inside I put the greeting printed on white paper.  I think they are so cute.  I hope she likes them.

I think I'm ready for Christmas.  Decorations are up and I think all the gifts are purchased.  I didn't have to get too many this year since I had already bought my son a kayak earlier.  I do have to get them wrapped (not the kayak!) and I have a box I need to send to my sister.  I better get a move on!

Thanks for stopping by and remember to keep your heart open - your creativity could change someone's day.  Susan

I've been working on crochet projects. I have 4 different ones going right now. I just finished a hat and scarf for a little girl's birthday. I'm nervous about them fitting. I'm terrible at sizing.

I used this doily in my "staging" and decided it needed to be showcased too. I really need to work on more of these. 

Thanks for stopping by.  Susan

Wedding card

Here is the card I made for a good friend of my son. I can't believe these boys are old enough to get married.

Here is the happy couple

Thanks for stopping by.  Susan
