Make a difference challenge-Cosmo Cricket

I am back with another challenge from Cosmo Cricket. This challenge is an easy one, all you had to do is make something for someone. That's it! Super easy and for a good cause!

This is what I did this week.......

It's a pincushion!

It is made with one of those $1 frames I love and a small piece of Cosmo Cricket Early Bird material. (this was the last piece I have) Super cute for that sewing friend.

Next I had a small gift for someone and I needed a little box and card.
So this is what I did.....

We all loved this line, Circa 1934. I have to confess I still have 2 decks of this and all of the 12X12's. I am in love with this line and have not been able to cut into it!

Until NOW!
Close up of the card. I cut some random circles and sewed some circles on them. I then inked with Ranger/tim Holtz distress ink "Iced Spruce". Wrinkled and curled until I liked it.

Just another view. I was trying to get this done early in the day. Did not happen! I have my 3 yr old g-daughter here from MN and she will not let Meme play with her stuff. We can only play what she wants to play with. Mostly that means being outside chasing kitties, looking at the horses, riding on the battery operated car (that she does not steer, just goes). But I am not complaining, when she is back in MN I will miss her so much!

Hope you enjoyed!

Love the little pin cushion. Clever use of a frame...who'd have thunk? I may have told you before, I've always loved Cosmo Cricket. Enjoy the company of your granddaughter!
