Crochet flowers...

Happy World Card Making Day!
Does this mean it is official, you can be in your creative space all day with out any interruptions! Yehhhh!!!! Well maybe after taking my daughter to the mall with her girlfriends, taking my son to hockey practice and all the other things that need to be done!LOL
Todays card is for the Just Magnolia challenge which was to create "homemade" flowers for your card. So I went to the handy dandy site at Papertrey were they have a turtorial on how to make crocheted flowers. As you can see I only made one because I did not have enough of the same colour to make two more like I wanted too! Well, after dropping off my daughter at the mall I am going to head to Michaels to buy some more embrodery floss to make more flowers! I also need to buy the right size crochet hook, as I did not have the right size for this one. Hope it looks ok!
Have a great Card Making Day!
