Howdy All!

Super cute, huh?! I sent this to my grandson for Valentine's day! I can't wait to create more projects using this adorable SU! set, I Dig You.

2012 Special Olympics USA Scarf Project

 Howdy All! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far! I know I am!  So, last week I finished up the 10 scarves that I had been working on for a few weeks. I made these for a wonderful group that helps provide handmade scarves for participants, families and volunteers of the Special Olympics. I participated in this project last year by crocheting 5 scarves and I challenged myself to double that for this year. I did it! So, here are the finished scarves.
And this one is my favorite! If you would like to learn more about this amazing organization, please check out the link here.

As always, thanks a bunch for stoppin' by today! Hope to see you again soon!

Dinosaur Punch Art Welcome Baby Card

Howdy All!
As promised from yesterday, I have a darling card for you today. I was inspired by this card that I saw on Pinterest. I have found so many awesome Blogs from looking around on Pinterest. If you do not yet belong to this group, I suggest you go have a look-see and check it out! So, here is my card:
I used all Stampin' Up! products except for the texture embossing folder which is a CuttleBug folder by ProvoCraft. I wish Stampin' Up! would come out with more of these! I love to use them to add depth and texture to my paper crafts!
Here is a quick visual of the punches and Big Shot die that I used to create my fun card(Click on Photo for a close-up view)! Cute! Cute! Cute! And easy too! Give it a try. It would make a cute card for anyone who loves dinosaurs!

Well, that's what I have for you today! Thanks a bunch for stoppin' by! Come back again real soon!

A Big Dinosaur Roar

Howdy All!
 I've been busy, busy, busy creating all kinds of stuff! Whew! Time to take a break and post some pics. Today I have a really cute crochet set that I whipped up for a girlfriend's brand spankin' new grandson. Her daughter has done the nursery in a dinosaur them so used that for my inspiration as well as idea's I saw on my new obsession: Pinterest! God I can get lost for hours at a time on there!

I made up my own pattern for the hat. I just kind of winged it till it looked the way that I wanted it to. The diaper cover, however, is from a free pattern I found on Pinterest. Here is the LINK. This was a pretty simply pattern to follow and I will definitely use it again. I also made a blanket to wrap the sweet baby in. I just used a basic ripple stitch and was able to finish this in a few nights of watching tv.
I also made a darling card to match the dinosaur theme and I will be sure to post a photo of it tomorrow!
Thanks a bunch for stoppin' by today! I hope to see you again real soon!
