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
