{ Crochet flowers giveaway and CPS # 58 }

***ETA: I will draw winners tomorrow, Thursday, April 10.
Remember when I told you that my mom was here and she made me ALL these flowers. We went to Hobby Lobby and got some crochet yarn, some crochet needles and a book, for me. I wanted to learn how to crochet. I should have started with something simple and not flowers. It took her less than 20 minutes to make one. Well, we didn't think of it until the end of her trip, could you imagine how many flowers she would have made? She was here for two months.
Anyway, I want to give some away. Leave a comment here and I will randomly pick a winner or two.
Here is my card for CPS #58. I used NEW Cherry Blossom Branch and Floral Birdcage. You can't tell from the photo, but I stamped the birdcage on separate sheet of paper and cut it out. I adhered it with foam adhesive. I colored the images with pearlescent chalk and my blender pen. I forgot I had them. The papers are Making Memories Chelsea Place that I found at Michaels last week.
Have a great weekend. My husband comes home tonight!

  10. First of all I've not checked in for a few days - your little man is sooooo cute! And I am digging those cards you posted on Wednesday. Your style is so fresh and fun. I love that it's not just the ordinary stamping up sort of thing (not that SU is bad that's for sure) your style is just different and I love that. So talented you are! Secondly - WOW those flowers are so pretty. How kind of you to offer to share. I find it incredible that anyone can do that kind of work and do it so quickly; like it's nothing. (I'm just jealous!)

  34. Wow, these crochet flowers are great. I used to crochet about 20 years ago. I wonder if I had a pattern I could do as well? I doubt it. I can't remember a thing about it, not even how to start. They are beautiful though. I love your birdcage card. I think I have shimmer chalk somewhere too!

    Blessings,
