Spellbinders Shaped Card!

 As some of you Crafter's already know, Michaels Craft Stores are putting the Spellbinders Dies on Clearance.The nearest Michaels is around 50 miles from my home. So I don't get to go as often as I would like.

But recently I went and found a few on Clearance. I was really excited. But was kind of Bummed that I didn't find a couple of the ones that I wanted. Especially one called Beaded Circle.

I had posted on the Facebook Group CUTTLEBUGing  (Awesome Group) that I was wanting it. 

A woman named Lori had said that she had seen one but didn't get It and that she would try to go back and see if they still had It. 
A few days later she messaged me and said that she had found It.

To tell you the truth I was in shock that It was still there and was so Super Excited. Was going to trade Lori for another Spellbinder that I had an extra of. But she said she already owned It. 
So Lori gifted it to me. Is she not the Sweetest to do that? So I received It the other day. 

So I just had to make Lori a Thank You Card and I knew that I wanted to use the Beaded Circle Die.

So here is the Thank You Card that I made for her. 

I used the Beaded Circle Die to make a Shaped Card. The Base of the Card is in white (There are Video's on you tube on how to use your Spellbinders to make Shaped Cards) and then the front of the Card I used a Purple Cardstock and Embossed It. 

I then cut out a circle in white using my Martha Stewart Circle Cutter and stamped It with the Stampin Up Stamp Set called Blossoms Abound and the Thank You is from the Stampin Up Stamp Set called Short and Sweet. 

I used Stampin Up Inks in -Lavender Lace and Old Olive. 

I think the Card turned out nice. I hadn't used those Stamp Sets for awhile so that was nice getting to use those again, But most of all I was Tickled to use the Beaded Circle Die for the first time. (I Love It!)

Not sure If Lori would want me to post her full name. So again Lori, THANK YOU!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a Great Day and Stay Crafty my Friends.   Mamaw Cindy

Crochet Mason Jar Cover

 Happy Tuesday to you, I just back from the health Department. Had to get a TB Test for work. That was Fun. (NOT). 
Hope you had a good Memorial Day and that you got to spend some time with loved ones. We went to a Cook out at my Sisters. Had a good time. Going to be getting some storms later on this evening. 
 My Grand Children have started their Baseball and Softball Games. I really enjoy seeing them play. My Grand Daughter has one later today. But will probably get canceled If we get bad weather.

Thought I would share with you what I made for my Sister for her Birthday.
I bought a Purple Mason Jar from JoAnns Store and Crocheted a Cover for It. 

I used Sugar and Cream Cotton Yarn called Potpourri. I liked the little specks of color in it. I added a Tea Light. But she can use It for lots of different things. 

Here is a link to the pattern that I used. In the pattern you are to Crochet all the way to the top. I decided to change it a little because I wanted some of the purple of the top the jar to show.

  Hope you all liked the Gift for my Sister and hopefully you will give It a try to.
Thanks for stopping by, Cindy

Crochet Sunshine Doily!

 Hello all you Crafty Girls and Crafty Guys to. It's a Gorgeous Friday. I have loved the past few days because we have had cooler weather but going to be a little warmer today and the humidity is going to come back. I really don't care for the weather when it gets to hot and humid. 

Today I wanted to share with you the Doily that I made my Mom for Mothers Day. I had never made one before. I did have a little trouble with trying to understand the pattern. I kind of think the pattern may have been messed up a little. Not sure, but I figured it out.

The Yarn that I used was Peaches & Cream Cotton called Sunshine and a white cotton for the edging. 

This is the only picture I took of It. So It is when I was blocking It, So to get out any bumps. I don't have any pins so I just use tooth picks. Works just as good to me. I put Aluminium foil under it so when I spray it my box won't get wet. 

I do Love the yellow and my Mom LOVES It!!! She is doing one of her rooms in yellow and she said it will be perfect for the room.

Now I do want to let you know that the Pattern for this is actually for a Rug or Doily. I didn't make it as big as you can make it. 

Here is the link for the Rug/Doily-


Thank you for taking the time to stop by and hope you have a wonderful Day.
