A Crocheted Throw Blanket

Today, I am sharing a crocheted throw blanket I made for one of my great 
nieces for Christmas.

I decided to make it for her after she saw the one I made her Mum which
you can see HERE and liked 'borrowing'!

I used the Primrose stitch which I found HERE on
'Sarah's Rich Textures Crochet' YouTube channel.

I started by deciding how wide I wanted the throw to be, then crocheted
rows of the same stitch until I reached the desired length.

I finished by crocheting a border of two rows of half trebles.

I bought the yarn online from The Wool Box
using seven 100g balls of Stylecraft Special DK in the colour ‘Pale Rose’

I will share the one I made her sister next week.

Football Themed Birthday Card

Today, I am sharing the birthday card I made for one of my great nephews who 
was eight last month. 

He loves everything to do with dinosaurs but as he also loves playing football, 
I thought I would make him a football themed card for a change, using some 
snippets of black and white card from my stash.
I started by matting the square piece of embossed football card 
onto black card and glued it directly onto the card base.

I die-cut the football border, twice in white card which I glued together,
and once with black card. After glueing it onto the football panel, I 
 paper pieced the black parts into the footballs.

Lastly I added the sentiment, number, alphabet tiles and punched circles.

The products I have used are:
Crafters Companion Embossing folder - Football Crazy
Card Deco - Happy Birthday 
EK success punch- Small circle
Football border, number and alphabet tiles - Brands unknown

I am entering this card into Snippets Playground ‘Anything Goes’ challenge #419
Di has set up a new challenge blog for using snippets which can be found HERE
