Hi to you all

when away at the new year I bought this new book 
knit it greetings cards

I have had fun making my own designs up 
here is what I have come up with 

To make this card I have used 
pre scored pearl white card 
pearls sentiment die cocktail sticks 
white wool 

To make this card I have used a pre scored card in pearl green 
blue card white card  I have used a embossing folder 
sentiment stamp small pearls cocktail sticks 
variegated wool and white wool 

To make this card I have used a pre scored card pearl green 
and the same as above

Rachel, I was guided to your cards by a friend from another DT who knows that knitting is my passion. Oh, I'm so grateful as I love all these cards so so much. I've never seen this idea before and I am so impressed by all your handiwork and creativity ....My favourite knitting to do is very fine lace on very thin knitting needles but not quite as fine as cocktail sticks :-) Hmm, guess who would love to receive these cards .....well any one who knits would really appreciate the wonderful detail of these cards. You've got me all in a spin Rachel.
At OSAAT we have a white +1 challenge running this week and your first card fits perfectly. Please Rachel, would you consider entering into our challenge purely so that our DT can see what you have created ....They all know knitting is my passion.
I'm off to thank Ginny for pointing me towards your cards've created each one so beautifully and I am so excited for seeing them. Thank you.
Love Ingrid xxx ♥

Me again Rachel, to thank you for linking to our challenge and even more for your very generous message left on my blog.

I'm still excited at how beautifully your knitted designs have worked to create such beautiful cards. :-)

Thank you for sharing this lovely card in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx ( OSAAT Team )

Hi Rachel,

I used to knit these in traditional baby colours as they make a fabulous New Baby card. I do particularly like the Craft On message, very appropriate for a crafter.

I popped here from from Ingrid's recommendation and I am so glad I did :)

Many thanks for joining in with our 'White Plus 1' challenge over at OSAAT & hope to see you back again soon.
