Working on some winter comfort

I have been working on some lovely crocheted Cowls. I found them on You Tube. If you like them go to the links and I will send you strait to where I learned how to make them. Don't forget to leave some love for the ladies that share so much with us too.
First up Sassy Autumn Ribbed Crochet Cowl.
 Here she shows you how to make the front post and back post double crochet YouTube

 This one I forgot to get a picture of before I gave it away. If I can I will get a picture later. 😉
Siem's Five in a Row Chunky Cowl Shawl 

Then I made the Modified Margaret Button Cowl
Only I omitted the fringe.

Now I am working on another Sassy Autum Ribbed Cowl in neutral colors. I will update this post with pictures tomorrow in the morning as it is almost 1 am and I need some sleep.

Tiddly Inks2:3 Challenge

 Tiddly Inks has a New Look and a new challenge, Come check it out here.
They have some really cute digi stamps and stamp stamps ;-) Come and join the fun even using their freebie if you haven't bought anything from them yet. I know you will soon enough start a file of your own with their lovely girls and other stamps.

I'm fighting the SAD again... welcome fall and winter. So am trying to stay a bit more positive and I thought this saying was perfect for this image, She just makes you smile! I printed her out a number of times and used foam tape to make her 3D. Bottom pictures show from the sides her layers.  Hope you enjoy her as much as I did making this card.

A Get Well Card

I was able to actually make a whole card this month. WOO HOO well 2 really. HA
This one is made with a digi from Gerda Steiner, she has some of the cutest little things. And if you buy the digi of the month and then get a card made and show her, she will send you the next moths digi for free. So if you keep making cards you earn more digis. If you are like me though I love her digis and end up making something late or not posting then I don't get the next digi. lol such is life... a day late and a dollar short.

Anyway- on to the card. Whenever mom doesn't feel good she wants oatmeal. So tried to make it look like oatmeal in the bowl. The spoon is partially 3D (the handle is glued to the original and the bowl of the spoon is 3D with an 1/8 inch dot) and the Bowl of oats is on thicker foam pads. Hope you like it. I mimicked mom's bowl too it is blue glass. I put paper glaze over the bowl.  She thought it was cute.

Day 3 of 30 Day Challenge

Love this one form the Paper Shelter.
She will be a lot prettier when I get her colors blended.

You can get this image at The Paper Shelter. I love that if you want a certain image they do have them pre-colored or you can color it yourself. Join up and get there email, they will let you know when they have a sale and then you can get more bang for your buck 😉
Hope you are safe and having a great weekend.

Day 2 of 30 Day Challenge

Well I didn't get any coloring done, but I did un-mount some of my red rubber stamps. I cut up a bunch of glossy photo paper and stamped it with the stamp and then put it in a trading card holder. Not bad..
Love the idea of seeing what I have in a quick glance than rummaging through the boxes of stamps.
I'll get organized yet... Pictures will be posted as soon as I can get them uploaded.

This was 2 small box of stamps they all fit in a 11/2" binder. I am using trading card holders. I'll get some picture ones later for the bigger stamps I have.  My niece is going to help me when I am done to organize  all the thank you's and thinking of you, wedding, baby...etc... I think it is going to be real nice when it is all done. I have so many more😵lol
