~ sweet sketch wed !25 AND try it on tuesday

hiya everyone! hope you all had another srcappy happy week! i sure did! i not only did another card using the sketch from sweet sketch wednesdaybut ~ i also got to particiapate in another challenge at try it on tuesday. their theme this week is alter something using fabric ~ and TIOTs sponsor this week is the craft barn.  i had fun creating for both challenges! AND AND AND...i even got another scarf knitted ~ a pink one! AND AND AND...i've completed the 1st slipper of a pair. ok..now...don't laugh too hard! (especially if you're a professional knitter!) this is my real first attempt at knitting a pair of slippers, so i'm still learning! it's an easy peasy pattern...but ~ i'm still workin on 'what wool' i need to use...and my tension! needless to say...i'm havin fun doing a little of this...and a little of that! oh...AND AND AND...the other project i've start on is a wooden bench for outside. i found another easy peasy pattern on-line...got the wood cut out ~ dh and i are at the sanding bit ~ and soon it'll be ready to paint...and yes...it'll be painted in fire engine RED! can't wait to show you a pic when i'm done!

ok...enough talking! here's my creations!

I love it Melody. The slippers look just like the ones I made when I was 11 or 12 years old. It makes me want to sit down and make some again. Your cards are incredible. You always wow me with your cards. I love them all. Hope you have a wonderful week. Have fun wood crafting and making slippers.
Hugs, Nancy SSW
