Other Projects.......

Hi!  Today I wanted to share another of my interests.  I learned to knit when I was about 10 year. old, but never did anything with it until a couple of years ago.  One of my sisters, Terri,  (also a stamper) and a sweet friend, Mrs. Henry are both knitters. Mrs. Henry started making dishcloths and giving them to ladies she knew. This way, I remembered to pray for her......anyway, I decided to start making them too.  Then went to hats and socks for my grandkids, now I am working on sweaters for each of them. I started the sweater project last July and am now working on sweater # 5.  Only 5 more sweaters to go!!  Anyway, the sweater pictured here is for my grandson Ki.  The finish work is not done yet (sewing the inside of the sleeves, finishing the placket and sewing on the button) The finish work is not my favorite thing to do, so I started Alyah's sweater instead.  When I get a bit bored with her sweater, I will finish Ki's.  Both of there sweaters will go to England with us in April.
As usual the lighting in my picture is not so good.  Spring is coming and I will get to take pictures outside!!
Thank you for spending a few minutes with my ramblings today.  Blessings!!

Valentine for the Hubs

Good Morning!  I know it is February 16th and I just now posting this valentine.  It was for my hubby and honestly, I did finish it until Valentines Day.  I like how it turned out though.  I had ideas rolling in my head for days (sometimes they get lost in there with all the cobwebs!!)  This card is entirely Stampin' Up! except for the black sparkly panel (DCWV) and the sentiment (Clear Stamps).  Oh and the Cuttlebug Embossing folder.....He liked the card also.

I also spent quite a bit of time making him one of these:
52 reasons I love you
He just loved it!  I found it on Pinterest, took a couple of weeks to make, but SO worth it! You can find more information here.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Be Blessed!!

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Love Day to All-
I have been MIA the last week, so busy with so many things.  I made Valentine Cards for all my grandkids and got them sent off.  We are blessed with 10 grands so far.  The cards I made were postcard size and pretty plain.  I need to be simple with that many to make. Didn't get pictures taken of them.  The fun part for the kids is that they get MAIL with their name on it!!  Remember how much fun that was when you were a kid?
Today I am sharing the cards I made for our "Sister Swap".

I used the same image for both and the same paper, using the "frame" and the "oval".  I wish I could get some good light for my pictures.......oh well, SPRING is coming!
Have a wonderful day and share it with someone you love.!

The Cream in my Coffee...

Oh, happy day!  I got the opportunity to play a bit yesterday.  This is one of the cards that I came up with.  I thought it would be fun to paper piece the coffee mugs and I really am pleased with how they turned out!  The inside of the card says "You're the cream in my coffee."  This is  a card I will give to my sweet hubby sometime. 
 Recipe:Card base-Gina K Luxury White, Pink and light blue cardstock are from my scrap pile but are from SU!. Blue layer is embossed with the Argyle Cuttlebug folder.  Coffee cups stamps are from Clear Stamps.  DSP is SU also.  Brads are from JoAnn's. 
Wishing you all a wonderful Monday evening!  Be Blessed!!
