snow much fun

Hope all is well!

On pinterest I noticed the talented Laura's card and immediately  wanted to recreate it using my  Warm Wishes stamp set (thanks Laura for the inspiration).

So for this card I cut out my card base and then I trimmed down (so that it's a bit smaller than my base) white cardstock and used my circle die to cut out my window. I cut blue cardstock to fit under this 'window'.  I haven't used my SRM stickers in a while so I found this cute sentiment.

I cut two strips of velum to use as snow.

Adhere the velum and trim off the sides that are sticking out. Then adhere the window. onto the blue cardstock.

Adhere the 'window' to the card base, add the sentiment and snowman (which I coloured with my Graph'it markers).

Now while this is cute I thought the snowman would be happier with company so I added the bird and the present (which is from my Mr. & Mrs. Claus stamp set).

I had this stamped image already coloured from a couple of days ago and decided to use my scraps from the card above to create a mini tall card...if you will! ;)
I used my Warm Wishes and Mr. & Mrs. Clause stamp sets.

Have a great day!

Crochet Bean Stitch + winner


I hope you all had a lovely weekend!
I have a couple of crochet projects on my brain and I started a scarf last night and decided to try out the bean stitch. I noticed at home though that the wool I bought (which is super soft) is felting wool and now I'm not sure if I could use this wool to make my scarf...does it make a difference? Anyone know? 

Check out this video to learn it yourself.

And now to announce the winner of my Efco stamp sets....
