Crochet Hats and Christmas Cards

 Hi Friends!!  Gosh I think I'm back to my old crafty self!  I've been on the roll creating stuff!  It's nice to have the old me back. . .not quite the same old me but I've been having fun creating again.  I've been working on crochet hats a lot lately.  I just made the one above last night.  It's a super slouchy hat made with soft acrylic yarn.  It's very light weight and just an overall fun hat to use during the winter.

With this hat I used a chunky wool yarn.  It's more of a beret style than a slouchy hat.  Wool keeps your head really warm and with the yarn being chunky, it's a good hat on a windy day.

Yup, I worked on cards too!  Yipee!  I went through my containers and found this old Stampin Up rubber stamp.  I heat embossed the image using white embossing powder.  You can't really tell in the photo that it's heat embossed but heat embossing is a great way to have a white image on a darker card stock.

Maybe you can see the embossing better in this picture.

This image is by Close to My Heart.  My first time to use it and I think I bought it 2 or 3 years ago.  All I did was color it with my Copic Markers and added Tullip's Puffy Paint to create the snow.  To make the paint puff, you heat it up with a heating tool and it puffs up.  It's a great way to create snow on your cards.

I added my handmade crochet flower on to the ribbon for embellishment.  Just letting you know. . .I sell crochet flowers in my Etsy shop. . just like the one on my card.  I crochet them myself. . .:)

Anyway, sorry I haven't been posting regularly but I've been busy creating!  I'm going to be looking for a real job soon so I'm making the most of the time I have in creating and selling them.  The extra money I make on Etsy helps a lot while I'm still out of a job.  If you have the time, please pray for my success in finding an RN job soon.  I would really appreciate your prayers.  Thank you for stopping by my blog!!
