Crochet Flowers - Moxie Fab and 2S4Y

I hope that you are having a fabulous week.  I have had a lot going on with my family and personal issues, so I haven't had as much time to craft as I would like to.  I have had the idea for this card in my head for a couple of days and it felt wonderful to finally get it created.  It is based on Sketch 46 by Laura this week at 2 Sketches 4 You.  I also used the Fun With Floss challenge at Moxie Fab World.  I love using floss on my cards and this time, I combined my love of crocheting with my love of card making.  My grandmother taught me how to crochet when I was very young.  I often crochet gifts for others such as hats, scarves, and afghans.  I recently started to make a whole bunch of crochet flowers (that I plan to put on my etsy site soon) and when I saw the challenge at Moxie Fab, I decided to try to crochet these cute little flowers with the embroidery floss.

Here is a close-up of the flowers and leaves that I crocheted.  I also stitched with the embroidery floss to create stems and grass.
        Cardstock, stamp, ink, border punch, ribbon: Stampin' Up!
        Other: embroidery floss, buttons

I hope that your day is going wonderfully.  Thanks for stopping by!!

  3. Love them, I would love to crochet, my grandmother taught me too, but I have no patients for it... I can not seem to keep my stitches uniform... I make them tight, then they start to loosen... I tried one time to make a simple afghan & got about 6 or 7 rows into it, pulled it all out and handed the yarn to Gram and nicely asked her to make it for me. She made me 2 :0) but, I may need to revisit crocheting because I love these little flowers.
