Hi everyone, I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far. It's been a reasonably good day today weatherwise. I had a sleep in this morning although not a long one as I had to let the dogs outside. I then just lazed around for a while in my pj's and dressing gown, something I don't normally do. I went to my friend Judy's house to meet some of my friends for our weekly craft get together, I decided to take a ball of wool and some knitting needles to make a scarf, It's unusual wool as it stretches apart and is woven. You use just the top parts of the weave to make your stitches and it ruffles up as you knit. It doesn't pay to drop the 5 stitches though as it really is hard to find them amongst the ruffles and it comes apart I did that twice, first time I got them straight back on and the second I had to pull apart quite a bit whilst trying to see where the stitches were. I was worrying that I might have to pull the whole thing back to the start when I finally managed to get them all back! It looks lovely though and is in my favourite colour of purple, It's varigated from light to dark purple. I finished it and still have some wool left so I'm going to see how much I can make, might be enough for my 6 year old to have a scarf too.
Well, now on to the card I made for today's post.
The basecard is Creamy Caramel from SU, the DSP is from My Mind's Eye and another new nestie I decided to stamp on the blue cardstock instead of white for a change . I distressed the edge of the white diecut with Creamy Caramel Ink and added some faux stitching. I stamped the saying with black ink and also distressed it after cutting around it. The image is coloured with copics. Both images come from a free set that came with the Do-Craft Magazine and is called Born To Shop.
I'm not a hugely material person, but I do like to buy my craft bits and pieces which makes me happy LOL.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for stopping by today,
