The 52 cafe cards CHALLENGE: letters S, T, U and V

The 52 cafe cards challenge by alphabets is getting closer to the end. No-one knows yet, how it will continue after that. The plan was to do cards every week till the end of the year. I don't mind continuing with the unused words from all the alphabets. Or maybe the new words could be by numbers, meaning the number would be a prefix for the word, like "Unicorn", "Bicycle", "Trident" and so on. If you don't know what this challenge is about, check my previous posts or just click on the "#52cafecards" category in the end of this post. You can find all the categories used in this blog from the front page in the left menu (the icon with three little lines).

I had these cards ready for some time now. I also have the next two cards waiting for posting but I decided to leave them to the next blog post along with the two last alphabets which are not announced, yet, as far as I know. So, these cards here are S for Spring, T for Teal, U for Unity…

Lazy knitter - Sukantekeleet

Oh my, look what I have found... I found these knitted pieces while I was going through my yarn box. I did not name this blog "The eternity projects" just for nothing. I started knitting them in the end of the year 2012, around the same time as this blog was started, so there are actually several blog posts (in Finnish) about these. Originally they were suppose to be socks for my niece but I never got them ready in time. In one point I decided to make mittens of them but never got to do that either. I did knit some part of it with white yarn but then I lost the interest and after a while I decided to unravel it. I guess I didn't want to tear it down all the way, so I tossed them among the yarn balls.

I'm not giving any promises about finishing these. I might start knitting again someday but it may take a while. I prefer crocheting but I 'm having a creative break from that, too. So, the only yarns and threads I'm handling right now are the ones put onto the …

Challenge - Koukussa Kortteihin -haaste #196

Edit: Since I misinterpret the challenge rules (see puzzle chart in the end of this post) I created a new card to take part in the challenge. Scroll down to see the new card and the description.

An old school friend of mine had her birthday last weekend, so I thought I'll make her a card. We don't keep in touch that often but we do exchange Christmas cards every year. I also decided to take part in another challenge. This one is about card making. In the end of this blog post there is a puzzle chart where I picked out the suitable alternatives. In fact, there were more than just one row/column that suited to this card. Well, in my opinion, anyway...

For this card I used only washi tapes for the background. In the chart it says "background paper in sight". I'm interpreting it so that the cardbase, which has a nice peachy color, is showing through the washitape. The peach color makes the background softer and the elements on top pops out more. this is the first tim…

Some of my handmade cards

I occasionally make some cards for my personal use. These cards here I have made during the past two years. I think I'm still in a learning phase. I have been a crafter and an artisan for many, many years now, so I have made cards before, but not with the stamps, the inks or the die cutting machine. In fact, I have had the Big shot machine for less than a year. I have used stamps for about two and an half years. The cards are not in an order.
