Cool Beans

Hey there, here to share a fun card with you.  I love this one so much!
I am going to give this to my daughter, she loves blue and we say "cool beans" a lot.
I added some crystal effects to the lenses on the glasses for some extra shine.

Diamond Painting

Hello, I have a new craft to share with you!! 
As if I need another one to do, lol

This is called Diamond Painting, (I will not be held responsible for resulting addictions after viewing this post) google it, check out you tube videos, you can buy them on, Aliexpress, ebay and Amazon.  Most of them come from China so they take a while to arrive but the cost of those compared to the ones from the states are much cheaper.

I've started doing videos of them because photos do not do them justice.

These are my first 2, the colorful floral image on the bottom is a blank canvas, ready to be done, the owl shown is a completed piece.
You add small stones that you can see in the green tray at the top to the pre-glued canvas using the chart like a color by numbers piece.

Here's a photo of my 8 1/2 year old finishing up the top owl for me.  She's hooked too!
It's a good thing that each kit comes with the tool set because we will be able to work on the floral one together.
I have my Cricut light pad under the canvas to make the numbers show up better.
Check out my first video here
and my unboxing of the floral design here
I'd love for you to subscribe to my You tube channel if this interests you, I have 2 more on the way and a dozen on my wish list, this is a great craft.

Here is the finished piece. I did a video on you tube so you can see the sparkle!
Check it out here.

Bunny tail

We have a new challenge at Kadoodle Bug Designs, it's an Easter theme tic tac toe
I made this card using the adorable Bunny Tail Basket file.

Click on the photo above to head over and join in.
This card gives me a double bingo, do you see it?
Onto my card, I used a lot of pattern papers for a really cute effect I think. I love the carrots and I just had to add some "sugar" to the peep.

So, this is a new project for me.  I bought this lighthouse necklace for my mom for her birthday.
A lady at our local farmer's market makes them, they are really neat, you loop the ends over and have the long dangle type necklace.
Anyway, I've had to repair this twice now for my mom, she uses it as a book mark so it gets beat up more than a necklace would.
So I thought I would try my hand at making a few of my own.

I went through a beaded pin phase when I was on the design team for Pinque Peacock (oh how I miss those ladies and products)
So I went through my beads and found some cool ones.

This one is my favorite, that seahorse is so pretty!

Easter lamb

Bringing in Easter today.  It's so early this year and to be on April fools day seems wrong.  

I love this little lamb and wanted to blow him up to a big piece to hang on the wall.  
He's close to 12 inches high.

There's a new challenge posted on the Kadoodle Bug Designs page on facebook. Come play with us!

Nuts about you

This was the free file the Little Scraps of Heaven offered not long ago.
I used the digital papers and the sitcker elements on this one.
I printed all of the layers as one piece, then added crystal effects to his nose, eyes and teeth.

Elsa blanket

This was the most recent crochet along from Pathway to Crochet on facebook.
Angela Mosely is the designer.
She designed it as a black cat. I knew I had to  make it into our cat Elsa.

 I put a couple rounds of double crochet then added a simple white shell border to not detract from the design.

I was able to get it done with out Emily seeing it spread out so she was completely surprised when I presented it to her.

Here is a little clip of Elsa in real life.
