The crocheted flower

Finally here is a card with one of the flowers my mom crocheted for me. She has made quite a few and now even some butterflies, I got the pattern from a link on Bev's blog. I have to tell you I took one look at the pattern for the butterfly and thought there is no way anyone can figure that out (it looked like rocket science stuff to me), but about half an hour after I gave it to my mom she had already crocheted 2 butterflies. Unbelievable!

It's quite ironic that the card I made for my mom to give to my sister ended up with the first flower on it. This is a rose, but she also made forget me nots, daisies, and a few others.

This image & sentiment is from Stamping Bella of course, if you have time go check the results from the last challenge (I'm on there too ;-) ). It seems Paula had most of us stumped with that one, but as usual there are people who are so creative and clever.

I coloured my image with Prismacolor pencils and blended it with sansador and paper stumps. The paper on the right was embossed with my cuttlebug birthday template and the gems are from HeroArts. As usual the image was cut out with nesties, and matted on the scalloped circle.

Got to run, I am going to fetch my dad in a bit so he can come and have lunch with us for father's day. He doesn't like to go out much but accepted my offer this time. And luckily we have a beautiful sunny, even warm, day today.

Enjoy your father's days. Strange that father's day is the same time around the world, but not mother's day....
