Birthday Card for my Great Nephew

Today, I am sharing the birthday card I made in March for one 
of my great nephews.

I used the Crafter’s Companion football embossing folder to partially
emboss the card base. I then embossed two narrow lines to edge
the embossing using my Scor-Buddy.

Lastly, I used 3D foam pads to attach the die-cut circles to the card.
I finished by adding the number, his name and the tiny circles.

The products I have used:
Crafter’s Companion embossing folder - Football Crazy
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Circle and Scalloped Circle
Number and alphabet dies - Brand unknown
EK Success punch - Three tiny circles

A Crocheted Throw/Blanket for my Great Nephew

 Today I am sharing a crocheted throw I recently made for my 5 year old
great nephew.

I used the lovely textured Textured Trebles 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 chaining 140 stitches using a 6mm crochet hook.

I then crocheted the two row repeat pattern until I reached the desired length.

I finished by crocheting a border of one row of double crochet, two rows of 
half trebles, and one row of double crochet.

I purchased the yarn from Fabric Giant
using 7 x 100g balls of Woolcraft New Fashion DK
 3 in ‘Navy’, 2 in 'White' and 2 in 'Multi Blue'

Thank you for visiting my blog today. Next time I'll be showing you
the one I have made for his sister!
