First Timer Challenger at Stamp TV!

First off I would like to take this opportunity to thank my crafty friend Regina Hardy for sending me Gina K stamps so that I could partake in the challenges at Stamp TV and have a chance at winning wonderful prizes. This was my first challenge at Stamp TV, I was recently searching for some challenges and  it was recently mentioned to me that I was a member at the StampTV/Gina K site and I hadn't even realized I was, I knew I was not active there, and must have just joined and then went on to another site,  so I decided I should take this opportunity of looking for challenges to enter to use my membership at Gina K. I have heard wonderful things from many crafty friends about Stamp TV and Gina K stamps so why not!!

For this particular challenge called Color My World we are to make two of the same card, one in black, white, grey, and a neutral and the other in colors. I do not know the names of the stamps I have used but they are Gina K stamps. I enjoyed using my Silhouette Cameo that I received last Christmas for the scroll layers and I believe it was  a Martha Stewart border punch for the additional butterflies that the individual butterfly out of.

Crochet-A Long Project Handbag

My newest Crochet-A-Long project! In a crochet a long you have no clue what you are making and since I am a beginner at crochet it is indeed a surprise to me. This adorable bag turned out great! Just love how it turned out! I chose these colors because it was the yarn I seemed to have the most of. Orange being my least favorite color, so now I have to make one in colors that I will love!

Crochet-A-Long at Ravelry.com

My first attempt at these squares. As you can plainly see, I have a hard time getting them square. I think if I would have made a couple more at the same time that maybe one out of three would have been square. It takes me a couple times to get things worked just right.
