CASology CUE Card #75: Knit!

CASology CUE Card #75: Knit!

Hello everyone.
Keeping warm I hope!  

This week's CASology CUE is KNIT

My mother has always been a knitter.  
Let's just say that I don't have the knack --or the patience really.  
I am a lefty, or a southpaw you can say.
When my mother tried to teach me, she being a right hander, I got all confused, frustrated and at the age of 13, really wanted no more to do with it after that.  
I really love that she knits though!
(I have the cutest hats!)  
So I have  a few stamps with her in mind.

This card making session was a family affair!
Conrad and I stamped 
this knit poinsettia with several ink colors on paper 
and my mom selected the best color combinations.
I designed a few cards and Conrad made a few design of his own.
I will have to say, 
I really think his designs are great!

What fits the Knit for you?
Show us (HERE!!)
I am so glad to see all of the additions to the Gallery lately.
You guys most definitely make it hard to choose, and so enjoyable to view them all!  
I may not pop in on every single one of your entries, but I do admire each and every one!

Conrad so pleased with his artwork!!!


Conrad's color design (I helped with the sizing and cutting of the cards, he
selected the colors and design!)
He told me, the words, they really don't have to be black do they?
"No, any color you want." I replied.
He showed my husband too.  
"These look like Aunt Kim made them, huh uncle Scott."
He smiled and said  "They look terrific!!!"

And here are Conrad's 2 card designs:

Love her style!!


The reason I purchased this Knit stamp was that one fine day there was a drop in card make and take at the local Impress at Bellevue Square (no longer at that location).  The feature stamp was 20% off that day if you made the card,
And this was the card I made that was designed by Impress!
Cute isn't it!!!

Have an EXTRA Crafty Day!

OHHHHHH! What a fab set of cards! And I LOVE Conrad's cards! LOVE how proud he is!!! FAB! <3

Eeee...you and Conrad crafting together is just beyond fabulous - and the cards created are wow x wow! He is one creative young man, and having you to influence and inspire him is exactly the encouragement he needs. Such a special bond!! Yes, knitting...I can, in the most mediocre of ways - basic knit and purl. It was my 'pre-card-making' obsession. I dabble occasionally and truly must do more. One of these days, I will learn to kniit-in-the-round - and look out: hats, hats and hats! LOVE this post; love the cards; love the joy you've shared with us!

fab set of cards, Kimberly! love how you stamped the sentiment on the first one. Conrad's cards are absolutely amazing!!

Shannon J said...

Absolutely love all of these! And extra love that the family all chipped in with a group effort! And Conrad is a superstar!!! With so much creativity oozing from you, he is no doubt picking some of it up by osmosis!! We have the same family dynamic as you where knitting is concerned - my Mom is a knitter, me - not so much!!!

Your cards are lovely too! It's a blessing that you can create in your own way~even if you don't knit! (I'm in the same club) ;) Have a beautiful Christmas Kimberly~

Jeanne J said...

You made so many great cards! I love the bright colors and that you made some with Conrad! Your knitting story had me laughing too - I could picture my own mom trying to teach me to crochet! We gave up too!

Colleen said...

Kimberly, first I want to thank you for leaving me some "blog love" and being so sweet. Your words mean a lot to me! Now for your cards...AWESOME! Love that stamp and putting JOY in there is a nice touch. I wish you and your family a most blessed and Merry Christmas!
