Flower Power

I'd like to publicly thank Cath Edvalson of Moxie Fab fame for reintroducing me to crocheting. As is custom in the Moxie Fab world, each Tuesday brings along a trigger, a picture based challenge, which is sure to give your inspiration a jolt. This Tuesday was no different - the moment I saw the pretty crocheted flowers on the challenge picture, I

1) gasped
2) realized that it's been eons since I've crocheted something
3) decided I should totally participate and crochet some of my own embellishments.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Cath, it was such a great fun to work on a crochet (albeit micro) project again. I thoroughly enjoyed making the flowers.

Here is how I used them:

Cardstock: October Afternoon, Basic Grey
Stamps: Hero Arts
Ink: Memento in Ivy Green
Embellishments: handmade crochet flowers, brads, SU edger punches

The card in its nature is very simple, but the handmade flowers are the real gem here (if I do say so myself ;)). I was in great need of a birthday card for a friend, so that worked out perfectly.

Have many sweet dreams tonight!


  1. Crocheting flowers when they started to appear in paper crafts is how I got back into crocheting too - these little flowers are perfect :) I love the brads you used for the centres!

  2. SO CUTE!!! You did a great job, I love that you made the flowers yourself

  3. Hey Sanda! What a sweet approach to this week's Tuesday Trigger in the Moxie Fab World! Thanks so much for playing along! :)

  4. I'm so jealous of your crocheting skills! lol
    Your flowers are beautiful and add great texture to your card!
