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.
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!!
