A little bit of everything!

Hello and
happy weekend to you all!
Sorry no cards today,
well maybe just a little sneak peek of one at the end of the post.
Today it's  just little bit of everything I been playing with the last few weeks
including the Baby Star Blanket I finished a while back
 and just realized I never posted a picture of the finished product.
 After being a little skeptical about the color combination I think it 
turned out great. 
 I need to get one more Baby blanket done before Christmas
however I'm taking a slight detour right now, lol, I started
on a new shawl.
 I could not resist this beauty!
The "Te Manawakura Shawl" by Francoise Danoy of Aroha Knits is actually a KAL 
I'm participating in right now,
keep your fingers crossed, it should be done in 6 weeks.
If you are interested in joining the KAL here is the link to the pattern on Ravelry.
Fall colors are slowly emerging in our yard and I could not
resist to share some with you.
 This is a beautiful Cockscomb flower or "Celosia cristata".
Doesn't it look like a brain? 
 The color is absolutely beautiful. 
With most of our summer flowers slowly dying this plant brings some 
vibrant fall colors to our yard which will last well to the first frost. 

Sorry about all the flower pictures,
I'm a little obsessed with Cockscomb right now.
 Last but not least hear is
just a little sneak peek of my upcoming Halloween card.
 It will feature Spellbinders Large and Small Die of the Month for September.
Stay tuned for more in the next blog post!

Thanks for taking time to visit!
Have a wonderful week!
Happy Crafting!

Happily Ever After!

Hello everyone!
I hope you enjoying your weekend
and maybe you find some time to get craftzy!
It's been a busy 2 weeks with finishing up some projects,
starting some new ones
and if you been following  me one Instagram you know
I been busy playing with some new stuff.
Just hop over to my Instagram site and check it out!
But today I would like to share with you a wedding card 
I made for a sweet co-worker who is tying the knot in a few days.
"Happily Ever After".
 Arbor was cut with Spellbinders "Grand Cabinet 3D Card".
 Bride and Groom as well as sentiment was cut with
Spellbinders "Layered Happily Ever After".

 Flower and leaves were cut with Spellbinders "Die of the Month 7".

 As you can see I made 2 cards,
one shiny gold the other with a matt gold foil finish.
Actually  the matt gold card was the first card I made and for some reason I was not happy with it,
so I decided to try one with shiny gold foil ,
what do you think?
Matt or Shiny???
I picked the shiny one for the Happy Couple and since it is such a 
special occasion a fancied up the envelope too.
   I can happily report that  the bride loved the card!!!

So if you looking for something to do this weekend
how a bout a cute wedding card with some gold foil
matt or shiny, you pick!

Thanks for stopping by,
have a wonderful creative week!

Milestone Birthdays!

Hello everyone
Happy Labor day weekend!
Hope you all enjoying this long weekend
and it looks like the weather is cooperating for some
great late summer outdoor time,
so with that said I promise I won't keep you long.
I had the honor of make these birthday cards for
some amazing milestone birthdays.
One for my moms uncle, who is turning 88 this month
and the other for
my sweet neighbors dad who turned 90 in August. 
How amazing is that?

 The gold floral panel was cut with Spellbinders "Large Die of the Month April".
 Flower and leaves are Spellbinders "Die of the Month January and Month 7".
 Numbers were cut with Cricut cartridge "Sophisticated". 
Happy Birthday to two amazing guys!
I'm already looking forward to next years birthday cards!
