Keep Calm and Knit On

Long holiday weekends spent with friends and family are one of the best things in life, but they can also be one of the most hectic, don't you think? Luckily I have a no-fail action plan for any eventuality:

Luckily I also had some Eyelet Outlet Knitting Brads to bring it to life in card form. I love that the packets include knitting needles and balls of yarn, and that the yarn comes in a few different colors, because let's face it, there are very few knitters who will content themselves with just ONE color of yarn! I made my own knitted background paper by painting little V's in coordinated shades of Color Burst pigment powders, as well as a solid panel to hold my stamped sentiment. A few tiny gems from a Jewel Bling Strip and a bit of machine stitching complete the design.

I hope that your weekend is full of food, fun, family... and a little creativity, too! ♥
