This is my new favorite knitting pattern.  Unfortunately, it can't be made very big.  I uses finer yarn and smaller needles on the purple one which made it smaller maybe for new born to 3 months.  Then on the aqua and white I used heavier yarn and larger needle to make it fit more like 6/9 months.  Wish I was clever enough to know how to increase patterns to be bigger!!  The hat is a little beanie pattern I had and I added some seed stitches to it to tie it into the sweater pattern.  Very fun to make!!!  I think our new great nephew will be getting a few of these in different colors.

Coat Sweater

Again another sweater for Taytum.  Can't believe she is going to be 2 years old this June.  Sweaters are getting bigger.
Here's another sweater for Taytum,  we have a new great nephew coming in Aug.  Our niece Jessie-Marie is expecting her first baby,  I am already working on some things for here.  Keeping me busy!!

Sweater for Taytum

WOW has it been a long time since I posted to my blog.  Don't know where the time goes.  Been busy knitting a lot not much card making.  I go through spells when I only want to do certain crafts and sort of put everything else on the back burner.  As I said been busy knitting and doing some stitching/embroidery,  will try to get some pics up of my stitching.

Hahhh,  made a step card, fun and easy.  The image is a digi for "Tiddly Inks,  Fairy Sunny Day".
Colored with copic markers and die cut with a spellbinders die.  the little flower I had but they weren't the right color,  I wanted them to match the big flower so I colored them with the same copic marker and add little peal to the center.  The green vine is "lavish branch" from Memory Box

Birthday Boy

Here's a little card I made the other day.  The image is a digi stamp from "dearie dolls".  Isn't he a cutie?? Colored with my copic markers and some shading done with pencils.  I cut out the balloons with a die and then put them through 3 different embossing folders to add a little dimension to them.

I love how this card came out.  The picture really doesn't do it justice.  The stamp is called "Silver Fairy" and it is a digi stamp from Wee Stamps.  Her stamps are adorable.  Stamp was colored with copics.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Here is a card made with a Lily of the Valley stamp.  I just love their stamps, they are all so adorable!!
This again is a pretty simple layout as you can see.  It was colored with copic markers, cut out with spellbinders and a paper lace doily background.

This is a pretty simple card. I saw it on someone's blog and loved it,  however, they used a stamping up stamp and I liked it better.  But I didn't have that stamp so I had to improvise. Oh well!!!

Image on this card is called "Priscilla" and she is a digi stamp from Tiddly Inks.  They have the cutest stamps on that site!!! She was colored with copics and as you can see I starting to work on pleats and folds on garments.  Hate to say but I still need lots of practice.
Made the flower from the same lace on bottom of card and added a little flower for Wild Orchid Crafts,  they have the most beautiful mulberry paper flower.

This card was made with Memory Box dies.  The window, window box, curtains all flowers and butterflies.  The greenery was done with Martha Stewart punch.  Little girl looking out the window is a digi stamp from Pure Innocence.  Of course colored up with copic markers.

Another Hanglar Stamp color with copic markers.  I actually colored this awhile back and finally got around to making the card up.  Flower was make from My Favorite Things die with little brad added to center.  Bow was made on new little bow gadget I purchased recently,  sure makes doing bows a lot easier!!!

This card is for our great niece Taytum,  this is her 1st Valentine's Day.  Image is from Digi Stamp Boutique, Coco.  I colored with distress inks, this is one of my first cards colored with them.  Think I need some more practice!!  Cut out and heart cut out from spellbinders.
This is my Valentine's card for my grandson Cameron.  I think I need to find some "older" style images for Cam now that he's in his teens.  But this will due for this year.  Not sure if he looks closely at the card, probably more interested as to what's inside lol.    Anyway,  image is from Hanglar Stranglar and colored with copics.
The first of my Valentine's cards.  This image is a digi image from Wee Stamps,  the paper is digital paper from NitWit Collections.  Image was colored with copic markers.  Lacey border from Martha Stewart punch and run through crimper.
This little card was cut from Spellbinders Grand Scallops.  Image used is from Pure Innocence, Little Angel.  Colored with copic markers, this was my first attempt at coloring folds.  Paper is from My Minds Eye.  Happy Birthday banner was cut from My Favorite Things die.
Wow, I'm on a roll 5 more cards to post!  This card is made with image from Sassy Cheryl, Sugar and Spice.  Colored with copics, the happy birthday is an embossing folder from Cuddlebug.  Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.
