Still Wishing

Here's another card I made recently. I'm still wishing for cooler temperatures, as you can see. So far, it's not helping. The stamps for this card are, as usual, Posh designs - this is the Snowman set. This set will soon be available from Stamp A Mania. The blue colors on the right hand side were done by dragging a Blending Blox ink pad down the side of a piece of glossy cardstock. I then stamped the saying on top of that. The snowy background was stamped directly on the cardstock, while the snowman and all of the other pieces were stamped on glossy paper, cut out and glued down. I hope to have time tomorrow to do another card using other stamps from this set. I won't give up until the temps go down! ;-)

In knitting news, today I couldn't resist casting on for yet another project, for two reasons. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month (go get checked! I can't urge this strongly enough) and in the knitting world, people are casting on pink projects. Second, the project I started is a pair of tipless gloves for Meital, who was very excited when she saw I had started on her gloves, even before I had finished Liat's. It was fun to see her smile.

I took a photo of Liat's glove to show you, but didn't get a chance to upload it to my computer (an unexpected translation project came in late this afternoon). Next time, I promise!

I really like the card. Colder weather is creeping up on me so much so that I dug out all my wool socks this past weekend.

Did you see the beautiful "Breast Cancer Awareness" blanket on Ravelry. I have it in my "favorites". The edge is knitted (or crocheted?) pink ribbons....beautiful!

Clever, using the blending blocks dtp. I have a couple of those. They are nice for quickie cards. I will try using them dtp too.

I got my mammogram this month. :) I cried during it, but I know it's for the best.

nice cards on your blog. I got your blog link from posh. I posted 5 pictures from the stamp a mania group at the rubber stamp convention in Albuquerque. They are under appearances in the forum. enjoy.
