Crocheted Beaded Bracelet

I found the pattern for this adorable bracelet through Ravelry, and you can find it here at
futuregirl craft blog.  I made it in 1/2 hour...isn't it just too fun?  It features a button closure used up a bunch of pink beads I had that I didn't know I was saving just for this project.  :-)  Thanks for looking!

Halloween Card Swap

I know, it's a little early for Halloween, but I am doing another swap on Splitcoaststampers!  It's a card swap and I am submitting 10 of these cards, and will get 10 different ones back for all of the holidays of the year.  I used up some scraps I had (once again trying to use up my stash!).  I stamped the ghost image, and embossed with white embossing powder.  I discovered something as well...if you thread the embroidery floss through the button, then stick it to the card, you now have something more sturdy to hold it so you can tie the knot easier!  I always tied it first, but this way was so much simpler, especially since I did so many of them!  I created the sentiment on the inside with my computer.  I also utilized one of their card sketches as a template for my pattern.  What do you think?

Have a bootiful day!

Recipe Swap Cards

I am totally addicted to joining recipes swaps. Over at Splitcoaststampers I have joined many swaps. Here are a couple of the last cards I have made for the "Celebrate Cinco de Mayo" recipe swap. I love that I can combine my love for scrapbooking and stamping with my love for cooking! TFL!!

Stay crafty, my friends.
