To Infinity and.. Crochet!

Here is the Infinity scarf I made for my Crochet swap partner! I was late on sending this project out. I was half way done and ran out of the yarn I was using. For weeks I would check the stores and see if it come in yet. I finally had to resort to picking a new color and starting from scratch. I think it turned out beautifully!

Simple Thank You

Using the Silhouette Cameo I made two of these simple and to the point Thank you cards. A little washi tape and a blank address label and it is ready to for the recipient!

Sunnyside Thank You

Thank You card - Inside

Thank You card- Front

Had a friend request two simple Thank You cards. This  Thank You card is my first attempt at a simple card. I know it does not look very simplified does it? I am an over achiever. :)

For this card I used my Silhouette Cameo machine using one of their freebie card files embellished inside with some punched out flowers, an address label to write your John Hancock, some scrap strips of cardstock and some Liquid pearls. I love liquid pearls! 

On the front of the card I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder, and a punch for the center cut out, plus the same flower punch and glossy accents. I decided to redo the request for a simpler card. See my next posting!

Snow Freckles

This past week I have been practicing with my copic markers, I figured I have to do something to keep busy since I am out of yarn for my Infinity scarf which is a  swap that was due to be mailed yesterday! Eeek! Today I am back on track I am starting over on the scarf, gave up my search for the yarn I needed and just bought two skeins of another.
The past weeks practicing with my copics, has been fun, all while watching movies with my family. Finished this card last night using a Digistamps4Joy image, with a punch for trees, icicles, and the snowflakes, some sparkly glittery washi tape, liquid pearls for my snow dots, and some sticky backed blue gems.
