Crochet Flowers

Well, i am still awake - god knows why as my eyes feel like lead is pulling them down. Decided to have a go at crocheting flowers by watching various videos on you tube. This is what i came up with,thats with out the couple of failed attempts that look like mash of

i do hope the saying practice makes perfect works for me and these blooming (pun flowers.

Crochet Scarf

Morning all, I cant believe i am still up, its probably cos of all the sleeping i did yesterday that i now cant sleep. Oh well, not a lot i could do about it so i decided to put it too good use and finish my crochet scarf for my Christmas 2009 box, prompted by Ginas fortnightly challenge.

I might have a go at some flowers and add these on at a later date, not decided yet though. I am very pleased with it though for my first attempt. I did think i was never going to finish it

Would love your opinions on it please?

Hello! friendship swap card

I sign up every month to the friendship swap over on docrafts and this month i needed to get my card made. I didnt want to leave it til the last minute like most months as i have also signed up to the circle journal over at docrafts and need to get started on that as the first date for posting is the 1st of march.
This card was made using papermania papers, basic grey sticker lettering, some buttons i had in stash, and a large flower and brad. Not sure who the stamp is by, but i bought it from sugar and spice at barleylands a few months back.
Hope my partner this month likes the card.

Birthday Card

I needed to make a birthday card for a friend, and decided i wanted something different. You may remember in my previous posts i was saying that i feel my cards are all samey. Well i am sure this card isnt samey to my others at all. I am actually quite pleased with it.
I used a tilda image that i received in a swap ages ago, papermania paper, sugar and spice range i think, i used my nestabilities to cut out the scalloped circle. Used some fibre at the bottom, and some buttons i had in my stash.
I really hope she likes it :o).

2 thank you cards

I needed to make two thank you cards for my solicitor and her secretary, as they have been a great help in the past year and a half since my grandads death.
I bought the making cards magazine a few weeks back and finally managed to have a read, i see this card and thought it was perfect.


Birthday card

I have made this card for a young lady. I wont go into details, but she needs cheering up for her 13th birthday and her mum has asked us docrafts crafters if we will help.

I hope she likes it.

Ginas Christmas fortnight

OMG, i didnt realise we was due another christmas item already, oh how time flys. I only knew it was due when i went onto the docrafts forum and gina had a message up nagging us for our second project. There was me thinking i might have been given a break being that i managed 6 cards last fortnight, but no, gina doesnt give anyone a
So there was me rushing out to the shed to get another card made and in box christmas 2009 box.

here is what i managed to make.
I have been complaining that i am fed up with my cards looking the same, so someone kindly suggested i join in another of the docrafts challenges. I didnt have a chance to find this weeks template, but i managed to find on old one and produced this card using that.
I am pleased with the outcome, and it def looks different to my other cards.

Well, i better go and get dolled up, as i am out again tonight with the girls.
Have a lovely weekend, and thanks for looking.
