Under the Sea Card

Here is my combined version of the crab card (which I forgot to scan before I sent) and the octopus card that I didn't really like.

Octopus Card

I'm not entirely thrilled with this card. It's using a template from Paper Creations Summer 2007. I think I got a little carried away with the glitter. Perhaps I will try again later this week.

Board Shorts Card

Here is a card I made using a template from the magazine Paper Crafts June/July 2007. I'm not too crazy about the pattern paper, but I'm not allowing myself to buy more paper until next month. It's also for a boy and boys are so difficult. ;)

Happy Birthday Flower Card

Here's a birthday card using those uber-popular flowers and ribbon. It was inspired by an example in Paper Crafts June/July 2007.

Blue afghan - Xmas 2006

Here's my husband and the blue, chenille blanket that I made for his mommy this past Christmas. It's about 4 x 5', yet she said it would make a shawl. Crazy, I love her and enjoyed making it.

Sunny Wheel Square

Here is a square a from an afghan-to-be. I used this pattern.

Baby Cards

My best friend is pregnant! Finally someone is having a baby girl!!! (I think I'm more excited that she and her husband are). Here is a card for her and one for a former co-worker who had a baby boy in the spring. The template for the onesie is from Paper Creations Summer 2007. Images are clickable.

New Hobbies - Cardmaking and Scrapbooking

Okay, I completely dropped the ball with photographing and posting my crochet projects as they were finished. I must have made at least a dozen blankys and a bunch of assorted other junks. I will try to "back-post" and get some of them up there this summer--at least the ones I gave to my auntie, which fortunately are a lot.

Anyway, new hobby--Paper crafts! I started with scrapbooking after my wedding scrapbook was a dull, half-assed affair, and I'm determined to redo it properly this summer. I'm experimenting with greeting cards because they allow me to use all my scrapbooking crap in quicker, simpler form.

Here's the Mother's Day page I did for my mother-in-law. Sorry the scan is so bad. I will have to work on scanning things before framing.
