I wish I could take credit for this card design but I found a card on Pinterest as my inspiration for this lovely card! I ran out of white card stock, and also of white blank cards to use but I still had these brown ones to keep my crafty mojo going so I found the perfect card to create.
You will find the card I used for my inspiration here http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1135499?&cat=7606

You got it! Tiny little snowballs to use on your cards! They pack these little boxes full of these little cotton balls and I have found they are perfect for using as snowballs! I think this box was in my mothers medicine cabinet for 10 years and I have saved it at least another 10 or so years, I'm a craft supply hoarder, I knew I might use these for something one day! :D

The second card I made in a set of 5 just like it today was this beautiful holiday card in shades of blue. I kind of took this card from Pinterest for inspiration and it is almost exactly like the card I used for my inspiration. It was quick and easy plus I used up more scraps!

My second attempt at the Tiny cars free pattern I found on a crochet site called Ravelry. I made it to the back windshield and became confused and winged it on my own. I think it turned out looking like a Volkswagen Bug. I used Caron Simply soft yarn and Bernat baby yarn for this car. It turned out much smaller than the first car I made. I think it turned out pretty cute!

My first attempt at making a car stuffy. I was trying to follow a pattern but it wasn't written to my complete understanding so I was a little lost and was not about to any waste yarn so I pushed forward and made my own version. I didn't write the changes I made down so it is a one of a kind car stuffy! I think it turned out pretty darn adorable! Now, I have to attempt another one, I need three of them for my order to go with the Planes, Trains, and Automobiles baby afghan I finished this week. Wish me luck!
For the pattern I was attempting but did not succeed with you can find it here http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/tiny-cars

TGIF! Another project crafty weekend has started! Woo-hoo! I am just so excited about it! To start off the weekend I will start making the appliques for this baby boy afghan. The theme of the baby shower is "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles." I found this much of the afghan pattern for free online but the appliques I had to pay for. You can find the pattern at Knot Your Nanas Crochet. I better not waste any more time the weekend has started! Have a great one and be crafty!
