SPRING CARD WITH A LITTLE CROCHET

Hi all, today I have a few pictures in my post the first 3 I am entering into some challenges which are:
My card features a stamp that I have had for quite a few years I have coloured her with Copics then mounted her onto Kraft card, the butterfly is punched from the same Kraft card, the paper is Bearly Mine gingham which I have mounted onto gold satin mirri card, the flowers are my own crocheted ones I have added yellow pom poms to 2 of them and flower pearls to the other 2, I have added some flower gems with Viva Decor in the centres, finally I added a strip sentiment in gold foil.
The following picture shows the crochet headband that I started and finished last night, it is not perfect as my hands get painful and tend to lose tension after a while so i had to keep resting them then starting again, I added a triple flower that i also crocheted which has a flower button in the centre, I am rather pleased with it as I have wanted one of these for ages, it keeps the ears lovely and warm as well. 
My third picture shows both card and headband together. 
My final pictures are ones that I took of Jess yesterday, I moved my pots around in the garden and she decided that they needed a good digging over......she also thinks that about the rest of my garden as well, lol. 

Bless her, how can I be cross with a little face like that, lol.
Many thanks for visiting me I do hope that you have enjoyed my post, I will be visiting all my loyal friends later today, I do hope that you all have a lovely weekend.

This is a pretty card Lorraine, such a gorgeous image and pretty pink papers and crochet flowers.
Your headband looks lovely - I could do with one of those, I always get cold ears!
Jess certainly looks like she is having fine fun, she is certainly growing into a fine looking young lady - it is difficult to be cross when they look at you with those big eyes isn't it.
I hope you are keeping well.
