such a traditional crochet pattern.

"Where your treasure lies..."

It has been a rainy day here.
Perfect for staying inside, crocheting and stamping.
I did both. = )
I was so excited to get Gran's Garden in the mail today!
It's actually my first PTI purchase, although I've been a fan of their
products for a long time. I bought the stamps, dies, and 2 inks.
The ink in the picture looks so dark (blaming it on the cloudy day), 
but it's actually winter wisteria (light purple) and
royal velvet (dark purple). 
(The Bible verse is an older stamp I bought from Clear Dollar Stamps 
a long time ago....)

I cut the background shapes with my Cricut,  using the Elegant Edges
cartridge. 
Thanks for checking in and I will share my newest
crochet project soon!
Have a great day!

Happiness is not a destination...

I love quotes. I use them on almost every scrapbook page I make.
I have quite a few stamps with good "life" quotes.
I thought this one was suitable for a graduation card:

I just love, love, love, the flowers from the Stampin Up! Jar of Love
stamp set. They give this card a nice feminine touch.


I added just a teeny bit of bling on one of the flowers.
I'm sure the recipient will love it! I also embossed the
"Happiness" quote with clear embossing powder. I haven't done that
for awhile...it gives the card a nice look, too.
Thanks for checking in and have a great day!

Lovely wreath card....

Hello! Happy Saturday! I enjoyed a little paper crafting time today and made this card....
I'm going to use it as an anniversary card.
The wreath was a freebie from misskatecuttables and is still available here.
(I'm not sure how long it will stay on the 'free stuff' page so
 download it now!) ; )
The flowers are from Stampin Up! Jar of Love set. 
The library card is authentic...a real live library card! Our school
media specialist was getting rid of them at the end of the year,
so I snagged a bunch, knowing I could put them to good use!
The background paper is from Hobby Lobby; Ice Cream Parlor by The Paper Studio.
Thanks for checking in and have a great day!

Candy Corn Inspiration

I made this doily in subtle tones of yellow, orange, and off white...
so it would look like candy corn.
It will look so pretty as a fall decoration.
You can find the chart here.
Thanks for checking in and enjoy a little crocheting today!! ; )

Blankie Update!

I finished my little Viking inspired baby blankie.
It's about 36" x 54." 
I did a little edging...ch2, sc around the outside.
It adds a nice finished touch.
If you need more inspiration, type 'granny ripple baby blanket' in the 
Pinterest search bar and you'll find all kinds of
cute color combinations!
Thanks for checking in and have a great day...
hope you can crochet today!! = )
