Wedding Anniversary Card

 Today's card is one I made for friends for their anniversary.
A clean and simple card using just two dies and a sentiment stamp.

I started by die-cutting the stitched square, then I positioned the hearts
die slightly above the centre. I stamped the sentiment in black Versa fine ink
and then used 3D foam tape to attach it to the card base.
Using some coral card, I die-cut a few of the hearts and glued them to 
directly on the card base.

The products I have used are:
Julie Hickey Designs stamps - I Need: Everyday Sentiments
Impression Obsession - Hearts within Hearts die
The Works - Stitched Square dies

A Clean and Simple Birthday Card

 Today’s make is a clean and simple card made recently for a friend,
using just an embossing folder and a sentiment die.

After embossing the card base, I die-cut the sentiment three times using purple card,
glued them together to give some dimension and added to the card base.
I finished the card with two diamanté gems.

The products I have used are:
Penny Black - Happy Birthday
Crafts-Too Embossing Folder - Dotty Frame

Sweet Summer Blanket

 Sharing another crocheted blanket I have made called the 'Sweet Summer Blanket'

The designer is Sue Rawlinson also known as ‘Sweetpea Family’ 
 on Facebook and Instagram

I love her pattern designs and the pretty colour combinations she uses.

 I really liked the bobble stitch which I learnt last year in Sue's pattern for the
Sirdar CAL 'Sweet Blossom' blanket which you can see HERE, so I was
keen to give this pattern a try.

I really enjoyed making this blanket, and will probably make another
sometime, maybe using autumnal colours.

The wool was purchased online from The Wool Box and the pattern
required eleven 100g balls of Hayfield Bonus DK in the following shades:

Cream, Blush Pink, Frost Blue, Vanilla, Gentle Jade, Terracotta, Oatmeal,
Lilac and Lagoon Blue.
