2 cards and some socks

based off of Stuck on You card sketch

Based off the Retro sketches weekly sketch

I have a couple Christmas cards for you today and a pair of knit socks!    I made the green ribbon on both card at home with my sewing machine and using some of the streamers from my daughter's birthday party last weekend.  the rhinestones are from porters as are the cute little ginger bread people buttons.  In order to get them to lay flat I cut the circle from the button off with a pair of wire cutters.  I used my scraps of course and the snowflake embossing folder with my cuttlebug.  On the red card i used The Crafts Meow background stamp from Lovely ovals and some white ink from studio G.

Here are the socks I knit for my husband.  I finished yesterday.  I'd promised him a pair of socks to match the glommits and scarf I made for him 4 years ago.  Since he doesn't wear scarves I frogged it and knit up a pair of socks for him.  the cuffs were a little loose on him so I took my elastic thread and thread it through.  it looks funny since I added the elastic afterward but it works and he likes them.  hopefully i'll have some more projects for you all later or tomorrow.

Happy Crafting Everyone!
