Wooly and Wonderful

Once again, another late-night post. How are all you out there in the blogosphere tonight? Maybe some of you have already drifted off to dreamland, which is where I'll be headed just as soon as I finish this post. It was a long, emotional day.

Anyway, I'm here now and I've got a card to share with you all. A friend recently asked me about possibly making some knitting themed cards and after some searching, I came across this little clipart image and decided to color it and use it on a card.

I apologize for the bad lighting. The sun was already well on it's way down when I finished, and there was little natural light left to photograph it.

I used Copic markers, C3, RV11, R22, BV00, BV08, BG10, BG13, R02, and Y11. Bazzill cardstock and papers from My Mind's Eye. American Crafts ribbon and various buttons. I mix mine all together by color, so I'm not sure who they're from. I added a little faux stitching in a white gel pen around the edges for some interest.

I think it turned out pretty sweet.

One more day of school and then my kids are off for Easter vacation. I am so behind on Easter this year. I haven't bought a thing for baskets or the egg hunt or anything. How 'bout you all? Are you all geared up for Easter?

  14. can you share the source of the image? I would lvoe to use it for my step daughter who also knits. This card is so adorable and very sweet -- love the colors and layout!

  15. Loretta, I just did a google search for free knitting clip art and clicked on "images" rather than "web." I wish I could tell you more, but I'm sure you'll find it. It was right on page one or two. I didn't have to search long.


Thank you so much for taking a few moments to brighten my day!
