Hello! Remember me? LOL! I'm back to blogging tonight with a card I made for a friend's 80th birthday. That's kind of a big deal birthday I'd say, and I wanted to make something special. My friend loves pink almost as much as I do, so it was a no brainer to choose it as the dominate color of the card! I tried a first for me--the cupcake liner flower/backing for a flower. I didn't really know what I was doing, I just distressed and folded the liner until I liked the look. I haven't made another one since. But I sure hope to as a LOT of liners came in the package, LOL! The cute crocheted flower is courtesy of Lisa V. (visit her blog here). I won a package of these lovely, almost Berry Sorbet colored flowers (she has them in an online store, although I think she is out right now) and am stretching them out for as many cards as possible! I also bought some basic crocheting supplies and intend to learn how to make them. It can't be that hard, right? Even for a complete crocheting novice? Yeah, I'm not going to hold my breath. :-D So, anyway, hopefully I'll be back soon to post a few more cards I made while I was busy letting life overwhelm me. It's nice to be back!
