So in case you thought all that pinning was in vain, this post should prove that it`s not! Thanks to Pinterest, I`ve finally figured out how to crochet flowers!!! It took a lot of messing and fiddling, but I think I`ve got it, and I`m going to love adding these little doodads to my layouts in the future! Here`s the set of cards I made for Ailis`s thank yous (a little late, but better late than never, right):
These were shamelessly cased from Nicole Heady`s card here, also found on pinterest and also the first crochet flower tutorial that I was able to decipher:I don`t know, my cards look a bit too plain in comparison, but seeing that they`re going to a group of 6 and 7 year olds, probably doesn`t matter too much. It was a learning experience, and I`m just stoked that I was able to pick up a new skill!
And now it`s time for the first ever edition of Roxy`s Ramblings!!!
Did you guys all see the Hunger Games? I`m so jealous, I haven`t made it yet, and I heard it was really well done.
Speaking of movies based on YA novels, I rented Breaking Dawn a couple of weeks ago. Usually, I let Jason choose the movie for Friday date night, but this time I picked. Now I`m not the biggest Twilight fan out there, but I have read all the books and enjoyed them quite a bit, although Breaking Dawn was my least favorite. Anyway, I hate to say it, but this movie really stunk! What`s with the talking wolves? That part was just laughable! And the whole thing was just BORING!!! Big disappointment.
It snowed here last night!!! And it still hasn`t melted!
Did you hear that Scrapbooker`s Anonymous are having their last challenge? I`m so bummed, love their challenges and all the DT.
What do you all do for Easter? We`re usually pretty low key, but we`re having friends from Victoria come to stay, so maybe I should plan something special...
That`s about all for now, hope you enjoyed my cards and my rambles, have a great Easter long weekend if I don`t post my new project before!
