I made this card front a few years ago. I had a bad habit of making card fronts and not the entire cards. Since joining the Show Them You Care group on Facebook I have been able to clear out some of my card stash so I can replenish with new cards. This particular card I sent to a man for his 45th birthday, he has been suffering with illness and his wife thought it would be a wonderful idea to have a card shower for him. I sure hope he liked it!

Finally dusting off the Silhouette this year to make cards and these are the valentines I made for over 20 pen pals. Two lucky pen friends had chocolate candy in their cards, but one lucky girl who goes above and beyond to give to others received this card below with my favorite candy of all time!

One of the first craft projects I ever created after I was married, was painting holiday ornaments for members of my family, and then I started on this winter village, that was back in 1995. I still have a few unpainted buildings for this town. I am sure back then I did not own a digital camera to photograph any of the items I had painted. Unfortunately, most of all my ornaments are in storage, that is another story as to why they were separated from the rest of my holiday items, but any ways, I am able to share with you my fun winter town.

Today's card posting is a Hello Kitty themed card that I made for a young lady turning 19. I sure hope she likes it, as much as I had fun making it! I received my new Silhouette Cameo pens today and since her mother said she loves Hello Kitty I figured out a way to put the Kitty onto the card and personalize just for her! I didn't stop there either I even addressed the envelope with the pens! Added a couple kitty themed stamps on the inside of the pop up birthday card and it is ready for Mr. Postman to swing by and pick it up!

Isn't she the cutest thing you ever seen! This is Delilah! Say Hello! She was brought in the world on January 7th 2015! She is not mine. She is the newborn of a friend of my daughter's. She is really enjoying the elephant I made for her. I am so happy to see my first photo of a real baby snuggling up one of my handmade creations! It is the best feeling!

Finished my Temperature scarf! This scarf was part of a nation wide crochet swap here in the United States each color represents the temperature it was in the crocheters region during the month they had the scarf. Scarf sized for a 5 - 7 yrd old according to size chart.
Today I finished it up with a border and call it finished! I love the colors, what a fun project!

A friend of mine recently requested a scarf to go with the hat she received at Christmas. She received a scarf, but it was very small for her tastes. I whipped her up this beautiful scarf. Want to make for yourself or a friend? I found the free pattern online!
