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!

|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!

Here it is my Valentines gift package for my Crochet swap partner! I was thinking on the go, a key chain, something for her to go coffee in the morning and maybe a little treat bag to fill for a snack throughout the day. I hope she likes it!

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.

Here it is my first handmade card of 2015! My first challenge card as well! It is a Thank You card and the inside reads:
You are such a cool
for thinking of me this holiday!
I was inspired to make this card from the latest challenge at Digistamps4Joy. It is one I could not resist "Glitter"! My card stock is glittery, I used glittery washi tape, glitter snowflakes and I added some Icicle stickles around the front sentiment.
