are crocheted embellies still in…???

hi everyone!

i have been one heckuva busy girl!  and i have ENTIRELY to many hobbies/interests/{obsessions} for one person.  i am clearly going to need to live to be about 150+ to cover all i want to cover and explore!  i am HAPPY to report we had a break in the oppressive heat and pez has been able to play outside the last few days – she NEEDS the outdoor activity to burn off energy!


have you checked out the latest submission calls for Through the Craft Room Door?  do you have a fun holiday project we can include in our special holiday bonus issue?  do you like to play with card sketches?  check out our submissions page and send us some stuff!!!!!


my card today is all about the embellie.  i made it a year ago (maybe more) and love it and wanted to use it so i designed the card around it instead of saving the embellie selecting until last!

i am entering it in the following challenges:

Mojo Monday – sketch
AI Factory – Anything Goes
Catch the Bug – Anything Goes
Your Next Stamp – Beautiful Borders
Fun with Shapes – twine

i love the design AND the colors of the little crocheted piece.  i got this pattern from one of my ALL time favorite crochet embellishment books – Beyond the Square: Crochet Motifs by Edie Eckman.  i place it on a felt piece cut with a spellbinders nestie and then finished off with a glittered skittle in the center.  the border punch is from EK Success.  the three glittering squares are my own pezabling which you can order HERE.  while you are on my website be sure to look around – i am clearing everything out and all that i have left is 40% off – there are some really good deals on there!


for those that enjoyed my dollhouse posts i used to put up  here – be sure to go check out my latest post on Dotted Daisy Designs – we are nearing the completion of the exterior!  here’s a pic of my littlest helper while i was working yesterday:

this is Bubba Cat (formerly Bandit) the little kitten hubby and i fell in love with when we were fostering him for a few days.  i swear he is such a little dream baby!  We also have two new foster kittens until Sunday.  another Maine coon the color of our cat fluffy and a tuxedo cat.  i will have to get some pics later today!

i hope you all have a great weekend planned!
