Kind Word

Hello,

I was playing around with my crochet flowers.  I made about 400 crochet flowers total in various sizes. Seriously, I am not exaggerating! I started crocheting the flower since last December right after my last craft show.   I still have a few more crochet balls to finish.   I just like making those flowers!

Here are two cards.  These two cards are bigger then my usual cards.  They measured 5 x 7. I bought a pack of the precut cards from Michael to try it out.  It was a challenge to make cards this big.
I like this one better.  I think the blue butterfly really bring out the card.
I'm entering this to:

Make It Monday - anything goes
MyGraficoCrafts - flowers
AlwaysCrafting - anything goes

Thanks for looking!

Helen

Hi Helen

Oh my friend you are just so amazingly talented. Your flowers are so beautiful.

I agree, I think the blue butterfly on the second card really pops.

Thank you for sharing with us at Make It Monday this week.

Hello.

Saw you on Make it Monday. Love your flowers. Where do you get patterns for flowers? I have some, but they are just too big for cards :-(

Happy Crafting. Best regards from Slovenia. Katarina XXXX

These cards are beautiful, Helen! I love the design and the color placement. And I also love your quote! Is it a rubber stamp?
