Hi Everyone--I'm "new" here--I've been lurking for a long time, but have just been too overwhelmed by the talent and amount of people here!  This is certainly as close to heaven as it can get for me.  Smiley  I adore crafting but don't do much anymore.  (I have an absolutely wild 19 month old who thinks she has to do everything I do, hehe.)

Anyway, I enjoy doing anything, but mostly I make cards.  I started out just with paper, but now am really into "paper embroidery".  So here's a couple I thought I'd share.  I've made a ton of announcements and invitations for friends, so they finally convinced me to start a site.  It's here if you want to check it out & see more of my stuff:  www.myspace.com/bitsycreations

Saw this one in a magazine, but there wasn't a pattern!  So I had to make my own.  Turned out okay:


My all-time favorite.  I'd make a ton more if it didn't take so long!!!


JUST starting to teach myself quilling... so don't make fun!! Wink

The monkey is my fave, but those cute quilled flowers are pretty great!  Nice job!

I had to quit crafting for a long time when my kids were small.  They like to get into everything and "help".  I think I did more stuff at the sewing machine during that time.

I love the frog -- it's great they way you captured his frogginess without embroidering every line!

You are most welcome here on crafster. I know what you mean by feeling a little overwhelmed here-but you definitely do not need to worry- your cards are gorgeous! The monkey is cute- but I love the frog! I agree that you made it look even more special by only partially outlining the figure. It is great. I also do my own cardmaking - but this is really special. Good luck.
