Card Relay "HELLO ~ PI GIRL" Shaker Card



I am a part of a Stamping Group on Facebook and had signed up for a Card Relay. The "theme" was do so something that was "out of the box". I hadn't made a shaker card in a while.. or at least longer than I could remember.. haha

I used a cute My Favorite Things Pure Innocence image from a set called Making A List. I paper pieced her dress.   For the shaker I die cut the banner that is from an My Favorite Things Die-namics Blueprints set. I used a "Hello" die from Lawn Fawn.   The shaker stuff is some fake snow and some star sequins.  I had a lot of fun making this and am happy to be able to post it now that the recipient has received it.

I am going out of town for a while to be with my son who is having surgery.  Since I couldn't fit much in the way of card making in my suitcase.. I have instead stuffed it with skeins of yarn and am going to make a bunch of scarves while I am there to give away when I get back.

A Thanksgiving card.. and what I've been up to: CROCHETING!!



What a busy month it has been..  I decided to make an crocheted afghan for someone special.. and after making it, I made two hats for my oldest daughter and youngest son on my knitting looms.. then an Infinity Scarf for my youngest daughter along with some boot cuffs for her (getting ready to make a set for her friend).. then a friend wanted an afghan just like the first one I made.. so I made another and just finished it up late last night and have another hat on the knitting loom that's red with a black strip around the middle.

Tonight I made this Thanksgiving card. I used a Deer image I stamped when my son was in the hospital.  I need to make some more, so hopefully I can be successful with that in the morning time.     Thanks for stopping by.



Infinity Scarf in Michigan State University colors ~ GO GREEN! GO SPARTANS!!
and on a side note..  this past week my daughter was accepted to Michigan State!!!  YEAH!!!



Miss Heather modeling her hat.. she picked our colors, which were no surprise ~ Waynesville Tigers Orange & Black.



This hat is my youngest sons hat.. he picked Orange and Black as well. He asked me if I could make an orange one with a black W for Waynesville.. I haven't ever done that but I do think I can.


These are the Boot Cuffs I made for my daughter.. first time ever making anything like that.. she wears them all the time.. same with her scarf.. I think she likes them!!



Here is a Breast Cancer Awareness scarf I made that I donated to a charity silent auction.


I am hoping to get a lot more crocheting done.. I went to Michael's this past week and took advantage of the Daily Deal on yarn and the sweet $10 off $40 purchase coupon they emailed me that morning.. I came home from Springfield with 85 skeins of yarn.    

Happy Thanksgiving everyone..  please remember those service members that cannot spend this Thanksgiving with their families.. say a prayer for them to be safe and to return home soon. Godspeed

2. Distress Ink ~ Tea Dye and a sponge
3. Small and Medium Oval Punches
4. Stamp set:  Lovely As a Tree
5. Stamp set:  Small Script
