Female Birthday Card

Today, I am sharing a birthday card I made earlier this month
for a friend.
I used the ‘cut and emboss’ folder which I was lucky enough to win in a
 competition last year, but have not used until now.
I used the folder directly on the card base, and glued a panel of
lemon card on the inside.

I then stamped the sentiment in silver ink, and die-cut it using the frame-lit die.
Next, I glued it to the lemon card die-cut using the labels die and then 
used 3D foam squares to attach it to the centre of the card base.
Lastly, I added two diamanté gems to finish.

The products I have used are:
Spellbinders Cut and Emboss Folder - Floral Reflection 
Spellbinders Labels 14
Sizzix - Framelits ‘Hello’ set of dies
Clearly Besotted stamps - Brushed Sentiments

Sweet Winter Blanket crocheted for my Sister

Today, I am sharing the blanket/throw I crocheted for my sister earlier this year.

I made 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 I made HERE and another I made in
neutral colours for my niece 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 my sister which colours she would like, and she chose these
to co-ordinate with her lounge.

The pattern uses 9 x 100g balls of Stylecraft Special DK and I
used the following shades:
Cream, Mustard, Turquoise, Teal, and Mocha

I really love crocheting this pattern, and I'm sure I will make
another in the future using different colours.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.
