Using Yarn....

Since I think I have dabbled in every conceivable craft.....even knitting, (which didn't last very long), I have all of this yarn sitting unused in my basement. I decided to put it to use. I created several cards using yarn. So you will be seeing these creations over the next week. (Lucky you eh? )


For this first card I took a chipboard heart and wrapped it completely with a soft baby yarn. I added a Prima flower and button to dress it up.

I used some K & Company, Papertrey, and vintage papers. The buttons are by Papertrey. Have you noticed my obsession to doilies lately? Oh! AND I even sewed a bit for this card! (The poor machine has yet to sew a stitch of my clothing!)
*** Got my results from my X-ray.....completely normal. (whew!) So I guess the theory of having allergy induced asthma is the current diagnosis. Guess I will continue my Advair......
Thanks so much for stopping by!!! : )

Cute card! I love how you wrapped the yarn around your heart! What a great idea to re-use things for other purposes that normally would not get used anyway. Just love it!

Marcy said...

Love the sweet, soft look of this card! I just taught my 6 yo to finger knit the other day, and she is obsessed with it now. I have a feeling our yarn stash is going to grow rapidly. Thanks for the inspiration for using yarn on my papercrafts. Glad to hear your x-ray was clear!

That is a really cute idea! TFS. I'm gonna have to try that with all my yarn my mom gave me to start crocheting...it didn't work out..lol.

Chelle - love the use of yarn, and all your vintage papers. Your card is SENSATIONAL. I have asthma too and use Advair every day and only use the Albuterol inhaler when I have an attack. It will take a little more time for the Advair steroid to kick into your system. Drinking warm (close to hot) water or beverages helps open my bronchials for some reason.
