More Flowers and some Blog Candy!!

Happy Thursday!

Sorry I have no new cards to post - I have been swamped with family stuff.

I am giving away my first BLOG CANDY, so keep reading!!

My baby turns 4 on Saturday, so I have been dealing with birthday stuff and preparing for company to come in town for the weekend. Also, next week, my brother and sister-in-law are coming from TX for a visit, so lots to do to get the house in order - plus dealing with normal stuff!

This is my baby. Doesn't he look sweet? He is really quite mischevious! Don't let this cute pic fool you! He is sooooo excited about his party this weekend and it's all he can talk about this week!

Anyhoo, I do have more pics of new flowers! I like these much better! I used 2 different patterns.

The ones with the holes in the middle are a little easier to make. Wouldn't these look cute with some BG Sugured brads in the center?? Email me if you would like the patterns - not sure if I can post the links here or not. I want try adding glimmer mist to one of them to see how it looks. I also want to try dying them using SU re-inkers (if anyone knows if you can do this, please leave me a comment)- this is when a copic airbrush system would come in handy! LOL! The white thread I used is a smaller gauge that makes a smaller, tighter flower and if I can just dye them that would prevent me from having to buy lots of other yarn. I still need to get a smaller hook, but have not had time to get one! These little babies have really helped pass the time at lacrosse & soccer practices during the week!!

Hopefully I will have time to actually use them on a card soon!! LOL!

I am taking a Copic Class taught by Asela Hopkins tomorrow, so I am super excited!

Okay, on to the blog candy....

What's on tap for your weekend? For a chance at some crocheted flowers made by yours truly, leave me a comment by Sunday (3/22/09) at Noon and I will pull the winner on Monday morning!

Happy Stamping (and Crocheting! LOL!)

Very cute picture of your son. Hope he has a great birthday. I crochet also and have been meaning to try some of these flowers that are so popular in card making and scrapbooking right now. Yours turned out good. Have fun at the Copics class. I know you will.

Your little guy is beautiful! You must be so proud! Enjoy these days with him - you're going to blink once or twice and he will suddenly be turning 34! My dear mom used to crochet things like your flowers - seeing your blog brought back some happy memories!

Your crocheted flowers are looking fab! Love the idea of Glimmer Misting them... Happy Birthday, Carson! He's too stinkin' cute!

My Mom used to crochet these little flowers and sew them onto knitted sweaters and dresses oh soooo many years ago. I love these as embellishments on cards ~ to cute!
Hope Carson has a happy day and a happy year ahead.

So are you all feeling better now? I sure hope so! How did the party go?

I just LOVE these flowers Tori - you are doing such a nice job on them! The GM will look great on them I'm sure! And if I can find the link to dying from the SU re-inkers I'll send it to you! I know I've seen it - just not sure where.....

Have a great Sunday!
