Christmas cards!

I finished Mom's cards finally!  I started with the wreaths over the summer, so it has stretched out, lol.

I was going for the distressed look.  This is so when, in my feeling crappy, I make mistakes, no one will notice.  HA!
I am pleased with how they came out.

Happy Holidays!

random things!

I have been obsessed with the My Favorite Things loopy flower die for a few weeks.  It is 22 bucks tho, and I realized I could (easily) cut it out myself.  I cut a piece of felt 1 and 3/4 by 6 inches, then glued the long edges together.  Cut every 1/4 inch down the fold, then roll up.  It is super cute!

A friend asked me to make a hackey sack for her son.  (He had seen the head of a bear I made for his sister and thought it would work.)  I looked online and found an easy pattern, and made extras to put in the advent calenders!

This is the card I made for my sister-in-law's birth.  I had trouble with the foil and the swirl die, but I think if I backed it with paper first it would be much easier.  I also got better ideas for matting the label die on SCS for next time...  :)

Hope your week is going well!

more mittens!

Happy Monday!

I finished more mittens last week for my niece and nephew.  I put their initials on them just for fun.  (My niece is two and just realized "S is for ME!")
These are his school colors.

The white is holiday sparkle!

This is for the "S is for ME!" girl.  She will be happy when it arrives!

Have a great week!

cards and mittens

I have been really sick, but I am chipping away slowly at my Christmas gifts, so I will have more posts soon!

This card was made from a card kit sent to me on  a Pay-It-Forward thread on SplitCoast.  I ended up sending it to a friend who got a new job.

This one I made with my new dies from My Favorite Things for my Mom to give to my sister for her birthday.  I got both doily dies and the flower die, plus a flourish you will see another day.

Here are the mittens I made my sister for her birthday.  They are made with Wool-Ease yarn, and she picked the colors.  I like the "miss matched" look- it is in for socks, so why not mittens?

I finally got my new camera, so will post some other projects later this week!
