Throwback Thursday #7

Hi Bloggers - it is time again for Throwback Thursday at Stamping with Bibiana blog!

This is a challenge that everyone can participate in - and no present crafting needed as you are finding a past-posted project from your blog - reposting and then uploading that previously posted project to Bibiana challenge blog -- Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy.

This challenge sure is working for me since I cannot craft at this time due to our home being on the market for sale - and we are packing and moving items to the storage unit - so thank you Bibiana for the challenge. It is much appreciated. 

Here is my Throwback Thursday project shown in grey scale - click HERE to see the Original Post in full color.  I just love this carpenter birthday card I created back in 2013. I especially like the brad screws used on this card - on of my favorite embellishments to use on cards.

The rules for this challenge are below and click HERE to visit the blog site to enter - be sure to READ the other rules first on her rule pages before entering - I hope to see you there! Enjoy your day and thank you for stopping by! Gail

Happy 4th Birthday Carson

February 16 is my grandson, Carson Eugene's 4th birthday! Carson was supposed to be a girl according to the ultra-sound - HA! He came into this world a healthy baby boy and we are blessed beyond measures - he is a jewel.

Carson loves to watch the Octonauts on TV and You Tube and he can tell you about the show, the characters, and sing the songs. At Christmas time we purchased some Octonaut toys for him and this past week when he spent the night he found this empty box behind the couch - no doubt he stashed it there! LOL So I cut up the pieces and created him an OCTONAUTS Wobble Birthday Card. I am positive he will love this card!! Wobble, Wobble!

Thank you for stopping by today and be blessed. ~ Gail ~

Knitting Loom Hats

Here are two knitting loom hats I created this week.

This hat  is actually Black and Grey -using one strand of black and one strand of grey. 

This hat is a bit darker brown than shown in this picture. It is made with 3 strands of yarn - I like it very much!  My next hat will probably be 4 strands of yarn - it is on my bucket list!


Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy and I like Easy and I am saying = it took some time but it was EASY!!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
