Birthday cards

I love my Paper Pups cart for the cricut.  Here are a few cards I've made with it.  
I made this one for my little one who turns 5 this weekend.  The puppies are so stinkin' cute!


Here's another simple card made with it.

Easter treat bags

I was originally making these for my youngest daughter's birthday to give out at school, but we couldn't decide on what to put on them.  We compromised, she's taking cupcakes for her birthday at school and she's giving these out at her Easter party.
                                           Aren't they cute?  I love the little chick!  I cut everything from the Accent Essentials cart.   I kept it simple because I made 18 of them.

I want a goose that lays gold eggs for Easter

I saw this egg on this site and fell in love with it!  Of course I had to make one.

I love it but now I need a nest for it.

Cards

Here are a few cards I've been making.  
This one was my first card, very simple.  It's actually my favorite.

This card was made using the Paper Pups cartridge.  Out of my three carts Paper Pups is my favorite.

A St. Patrick's Day card.  I got a some ink on the white while I was stamping the saying.  :(

I'm starting to get a little more details on my cards.  This one was also made with the Paper Pups cart.

A knitting fool

I'm really not, but it does seem like I've been knitting a lot lately.  The projects I've been working on have just been quick ones.  I just finished another star crossed slouchy beret.  This is my third one.

Finally...


I have a few pictures of a couple of gifts I knitted for Christmas.  The first one is an Irish hiking scarf I made for my Dad.  


This next one is a shawl I made for my Mom.  


Ravelry.com is a great knitting and crocheting community that has a lot of shared patterns.  I found the scarf pattern on ravelry by Adrian Bizilla.  The best is you can keep track of your projects, needles, stash of yarn, pretty much anything to do with knitting and crocheting.

Knit shrug

I finished my little one's shrug.  I think it turned out great.  
This is a pattern I got off of Ravelry.com called Mon Petit Shrug by Jessica Salonen.
The pictures were taken in very poor light, sorry about that.
