Female Birthday Card

I’ve just realised I had forgotten to share this card with you last year.

I was asked by my friend’s husband if I could make my friend
a card for her birthday, and this is it!

I embossed a rectangle of lilac pearlised card, then matted it onto
black card and glued onto the card base.

Next I die cut the sentiment three times in white card, glued
them together and placed in the centre of the card.

Lastly, I printed the other sentiment and die-cut with the oval die, 
then added some sequins and diamanté gems.

The products I have used are:
One of the two Sizzix Embossing Folders - Lace Set 2
Stampin' Up Sizzix Thinlets die - Happy Birthday
The Works - Pierced Oval die
Sentiment - Computer generated

Sweet Winter Blanket crocheted in Neutral Colours

Today, I am sharing the blanket/throw I crocheted for my eldest
great niece last year.

I decided to make it using the pattern for the Sweet Winter blanket, designed
by Sue Rawlinson also known as ‘Sweetpea Family’ on Facebook and Instagram

You can find the original blanket which I made HERE

I purchased Sue's pattern from Love Crafts which you can find HERE 

 I purchased the yarn online from the Wool Box HERE

I asked her what colours she would like, and she opted for neutrals.

The pattern uses 9 x 100g balls of Stylecraft Special DK and I
used the following shades:
Cream, Parchment, Parma Violet, Duck Egg and Stone

I'm pleased to say that my great niece loved it.
