A Crocheted Throw/Blanket for my Great Niece

Today, I am sharing another crocheted throw/blanket I have made for one 
of my great nieces.

I am really enjoying this new hobby, so my plan is to make a throw for
each family member, (both female and male, young and old) but only if they
would like one of course!
So, that's 21 in total, and I've made 10 so far, 
3 of which I still have to share with you. 
Maybe by this time next year, they will all be completed!

I used the lovely textured Suzette stitch which I found HERE on
the 'Blossom Crochet' YouTube channel.
Rebekah’s tutorials are really easy to follow and she has lots of different
crochet stitches to share.

I started by deciding how wide I wanted the throw to be and
 chained 142 stitches. I then crocheted the one row repeat pattern
until I reached the desired length.

I finished by crocheting a border of three rows of half trebles and
two rows of double crochets.

I purchased the yarn online from The Wool Box
using eight 100g balls of Stylecraft Special DK in the colour ‘Fondant’

A ‘Clean and Simple’ Masculine Birthday Card

Sharing a 'clean and simple' card today made for a friend
who celebrated his birthday earlier this month.

I used Pinterest again to give me some inspiration, which I 
seem to be lacking at the moment.

I used the deckle squares to cut a panel in white card, glued it to the
card base, then cut half a square in grey and glued that on top.

Using my Misti stamping platform, I stamped the birthday sentiment in
black ink.

I die-cut the 'happy' in black card and black 3d foam, glued them
together and positioned it at an angle above the stamped birthday.

The products I have used are:
My Favourite Things - Label Maker Sentiments #1
Lawn Fawn Script - Happy
Deckle edge square dies - Brand unknown
