Just One more - LIM 211 - and a Little knitting

I know I said that was all for me today...but I just had another idea spark in my brain, so I thought I'd share this card too.  This is for the Less is More challenge also.  I was going to enter this one into the CASology challenge too...but I'm too late!

The hearts used on this card are some NBUS (this discription is from Darnell and means never before used schtuff).  I've probably had these heart stamps for over a year and never inked them up!  I used my new MISTI (Most Incredible Stamping Tool Invented) to arrange the stamps on a circle I'd sketched on scrap paper, then just inked up the hearts and presto!....perfectly placed images!!  It's a little bit pricey...but what an incredible tool!  Using this tool, you can stamp repeatedly in the same place on the card until you get the image just right!  I am in LOVE with this new addition to my craft room!

I've also been keeping busy with other things during the evening hours.  I've been doing a LOT of knitting and crocheting.  I just finished this afghan the other evening.  It measures about 48 x 68 inches and is knitted with doubled thread throughout.  I used size 17 circular needles, so I was able to get this one finished in about 3 weeks...and that's just knitting in the evenings!  I love this pattern and I'm already working on another afghan! Who knows....maybe this will be Christmas gifts for each of my children if I can get enough of them knitted up by Christmas!

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by for a visit!  Hope you'll come back soon!  Your comments are greatly appreciated! Until next time...

Pin It!

I LOVE the different patterned hearts Susan! Your blanket looks great! I am busy crocheting one, but I think it will take 10 years to complete!

This is so pretty, Susan! A lovely one layer card, love the stamps. I too have some heart stamps that I haven't used yet. Great to see you about in blogland again xx

Bonnie said...

Love this arrangement of hearts! The afghan is so pretty! I tried knitting with a double strand and had a hard time keeping the tension the same on both. I can appreciate the work that went into this and the recipient will enjoy wrapping up in it.

I really LOVE your patterned heart wreath, Susan! Such a simple design, but because of the patterns, there is a ton of interest! And your knitting is fabulous! That color is divine!! (Good job using that NBUS and thanks for the shout out!!) Hugs, Darnell

Love your heart wreath Susan and I've just googled a Misti to see what it was! Looks to be a great asset for stamping. Love your afghan, pretty design and colour:)
