Vacation,Petite Miss and Crochet

Hi Bloggy Friends, So nice of you to stop by. Wanted to get this post in because I am going on Vacation in a few days.
I am going to Florida with my Daughter and Grand Children to Walt Disney World. My Grand Children are so Excited. We have never been to Walt Disney World. We will be staying for a week and then going to Coco Beach. Which I am SOOOO Excited. This will be our first time seeing the Ocean. Whoooo Hoooo!
Just not looking forward to long drive and not to Excited about all of the walking either. But I'm taking my Go walk Shoes.  So I'll let you know if they are good for that much walking.                            

So before I take off I want to share with you what I made my Grandkids to take to Florida.
It's a pouch that I Crocheted to hang behind the front seat to hang below one of the DVD Players to hold their movies.  








                 This was my first time making anything like It. So it turned out o.k.  I did make the strap a little to long. Going to shorten It a little. Made it in Grey and a strip of yellow. Thought it would look good with the Interior of my Daughters car. Unfortunately the picture doesn't show the colors very good.

I also wanted to share that my Grand Daughter Scarlett was in the Fall Festival Pageant here in our hometown and she won Petite Miss. She was so Excited. There was 16 girls in her group. We were all Excited. She did such a wonderful Job. So Proud of her.

Here is a few pictures of her in the Pageant.











 As you can tell she was pretty Shocked and Excited. Sorry about the picture of her in the crown. Her hand moved and made it look all blurry. Sometimes I can get so mad at my Camera.

Well It is time for me to go. The Grand Kids are spending the night and they are wanting something to eat. So I had better go. But I want to Thank you again for stopping by.

Quilt Card for Grandma!

Hello, So glad you could stop by. I have been so busy in my Craft Room. I have several projects going. But all projects were put on hold today because I had to make a very Special Card for a very Special Person. I made a Birthday Card for my Grandma Sophie.

Today is her Birthday! She is 101 years old. It's hard for me to put into words how Wonderful it is to have her in mine and my families lives. She is such a Blessing.

I call her Mamaw, most Grand Mother's are called Mamaw around here.

Mamaw Loves to make Quilt's and has made and given away many to her family. I have one and Cherish It.

So today, when trying to figure out what kind of card to make her, I thought hey, why not a Quilt Card.
So I picked out some cardstock that I thought would go together and here is the card that I came up with.







Supplies used:

Cardstocks- Blue Bayou, Purely Pomegranate, Pink, Very Vanilla
Flower Card Stock from My Minds Eye- Blush Sweet

S.U. Sizzlets Little Leaves Die

S.U. Oval Scallop Punch

S.U. Large Oval Punch

S.U. Scallop Circle Punch

S.U. 1- 3/8th Square Punch

S.U. Sincere Salutations Stamp Set

Embossed the squares with the Square Lattice Folder from S.U.

For the Flower, I punched out five Scallop Circles and wet them with water. Scrunched them up. Let them dry some. Opened them up part way and let them dry rest of the way.

Sponged Purely Pomegranate Ink on the edges. Glued all of the pieces together and added a Sparkly Pearl in the center and added a Purely Pomegranate Ribbon.

I really think she is going to Love her Card. Combines two of her favorite things. Quilts and Flowers.
Hope you enjoyed seeing the card that I made. Thanks again for stopping by.    Cindy

Super Cute Owl Key Chains!

 Hello Bloggy Friends, How are you all doing? I'm doing good. Today was the first day of school here in my hometown. So I didn't have the Grand Kids here. It was kind of nice to have the house to my self. But I missed having them here to. But I'm sure they will be asking to spend the night.

I wanted to show you the little Owl key chains that I made. I Love Owls and these were Sooooo fun to make and super easy.






 I made the purple one for me, but thought it was a little to big. So I used a smaller hook. I am going to make me another one and this one is going to hang off of my rear view mirror. Made the Turquois one for my Grand Daughter. She Is going to hook it on her backpack.



I made this one in Fall colors for my Daughter Jade. She loves It!
 I now have several family members wanting one to. I'm also going to make one to hang on my Christmas Tree. So as you can see you can use them for more than just a key chain.

Going to post the link to these Cuties at the end of this post If you would like to try making one.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a Sunshine-y Day!

Critters and Treasures !

Hello, Glad you could stop by. My Grand Kids are here today. I usually don't post anything when they are here but they are watching a cartoon right now, so I thought I would sneak this post in real quick.

I am sharing a card with you that I made my sister Tammy for her Birthday.



                                                      

 
 
Your probably wondering WHY I would make this Card for her. Well, She is having a big problem with Raccoons. She bought a live trap and has caught several and has had to take them some where else to release them. I pretty much laughed the whole time making this Card. When I seen the Raccoon I knew this would be the perfect card for her.
 
The Raccoon is from the Create a Critter Cartridge
I used Kraft, Very Vanilla and Black Cardstock
Stampin Up Papers and Crystal Effects on the eyes.
 
 
 
Also thought I would share a picture of my Grand Children Walker and Scarlett with their cousin McKinley from the Pirate Themed Vacation Bible School. Last night was the last night and they finally found the buried Treasure.
 
No It wasn't Gold, Silver or Diamonds. The Treasure they found was God. The most wonderful Treasure of all. Inside the chest was a Bible for each one of the children.
 
 
                                                         
 
Thanks again for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful day!

Crochet Potholders!

Hi Bloggy Friends, Glad you could stop by. Did you all have a good 4th of July? I actually got to see the fireworks three times. So that was fun.

We started the 4th with a cookout and then that night a bunch of us went to the Historical Hotel in French Lick. Which is in the next town over from us. The fireworks were Beautiful and they always have an old time band playing music. Really a great atmosphere.

Then on Saturday night we went to see the Fireworks at the park in our home town. They were Awesome!!! We were sitting fairly close and I got so tickled at my grown niece Amy. She kept jerking her arms and saying Oh My. I don't think she had ever sit so close to fireworks. Made my night just watching her. They play Patriotic Music over the Intercom and had a big blow up screen in the ball field and played the movie Frozen after the fireworks.

Then afterwards we went to my Sister Tammy's house. Here Daughter Amy and her husband had bought a bunch of fireworks. They were so Great. Yes, we were sitting to close and stuff kept falling on us. But I Loved them.

I do LOVE Fireworks!

As some of you know I started Crocheting about a year and a half ago and I absolutely Love It.
So I wanted to share with you the pictures of my very first Dish clothes that I just made.




                                               


 

 


 

 

I really like them and they were so fun and easy to make. Mikey from the Crochet Crowd has a video on youtube. He is actually making a square for an Afghan. So I just made it a little smaller. I just chained 26 instead of the 36 he chained at first.

It is called the Raised Treble Stitch.
 
I have two grown Nieces that were born of the Fourth of July. So I gave them the Patriotic Colored Dishrags.
 
Here is a link If you would like to try making some of these dishcloths your self.
 
 
Thanks for stopping by and If you leave a comment please Include your Blog Address so that I can visit you.
 
Hope you have a Happy and Creative Day!!!!!

Birthday Card for Amber!

Hi All, I'm back with another post. Wanted to share with you a Card that I made for niece Amber for her 21st Birthday.        

The reason I decided to make this card was because Amber loves Tea and she loves to add honey to here tea. So I hope she will get the connection.




                                                 



Now let me tell you, I had a time trying to make a perfect Hexagon. I didn't have a Cricut Cartridge with one on It. So this was as good as it got.

For the front of the card I started with a very light yellow cardstock and stamped little Hexagons on it with Summer Sun Ink, I also colored the Bee with Summer Sun Ink and cut it out and popped it up with stampin  dimensionals. The three stamp sets that I used are:

Bo Bunny (Hello Sunshine)
S.U. Itty Bitty Backgrounds
S.U. Well Scripted (Happy Birthday)

Inks:
Summer Sun, Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise and Black

  When I am trying to think up a Card to make I will make a quick sketch of the Card that I want to make and somehow this card turned out nothing like my sketch. I actually think it turned out a lot better. So I am happy with the way it turned out and think it's pretty cute.


I also would like to share that my niece Amber left earlier this morning and is on her way to the Air Force Field Training. I couldn't be more proud of her. What an Amazing, Intelligent and beautiful woman she has become.

                                                  
                                                       
            

                                                 
Thanks to everyone that takes the time to come over and visit my blog. Hope you enjoyed seeing the card I made Amber.
Happy Day to you all.  Cindy

Graduation Cards

Hey Crafty Friends glad you could stop by. It is so hot here today. I went out side for a little while and had to come back in. Blah, I can't do the heat.

My Grand Kids are usually with me this time of day. But they with their Mom right now, so I thought this would be a good time to do this post.

Wanted to share with you a couple of Graduation Cards that I just made for two of my nieces. I made them just alike, the only thing different is the colors. I made them In their school colors.


 

                                                  
                                                                               

 
Supplies Used- Stampin Up Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die, Bo Bunny Hello Sunshine Stamp Set, Congratulations from Foam Set, S.U. Large Oval Punch, S.U. Large Scallop Oval Punch, Hat from Everyday Paper Dolls Cricut Cartridge and a Black Brad.              
 
I like the way they turned out and look very girly to me. I had
made another one of these last year for another Niece in Green
and Yellow. So this Card is great for using their School Colors.
 
                            
Thanks for stopping by and seeing my Cards. Hope you have a Great Day and stay cool.
