My first crochet throw

A few weeks ago I completed this crochet throw.  I'd been working on it off and on for several months and I'm so happy to have finally finished it!  I found the pattern on the Red Heart website and it's called School Spirit Throw and it's designed by Bobbi Andersen.  The pattern calls for two colors but I wanted to make mine colorful! I used Red Heart Super Saver yarn in these 8 colors:  Delft Blue, Lt. Blue, Pumpkin, Cherry Red, Paddy Green, Spring Green, Brt. Yellow and Pale Yellow.  The completed size is 86" x 46.5" and fits a twin bed.

Birthday Wishes

A card for my Aunt's birthday.  The card base is Papertrey Ink's aqua mist cs which I also used as a layer to mat the floral image.  The flower is an image from Papertrey Ink's stamp set called Life.  I stamped it with Stampin Up's Pretty in Pink ink and cut it and also the layers with Spellbinders' Petite Oval nestabilities.  The sentiment is from Gina K. Design's Elegant Flowers stamp set and I stamped it with Versamark ink.  The patterned paper is by Anna Griffin and the ribbon is from Michaels by a company called Morex Corp.
