Hi all, today I have a card to show you that I would like to enter into the following challenges:
For my card I have used the Flower Frame Freebie from Delicious Doodles, I used the My Craft Studio programme to insert the PNG image of 'Chloe with Daisy', available from Pink Gem Designs, I also used a second frame reduced in size and inserted a sentiment.  I coloured both Chloe and the frames with Copics, the papers are from K&Co, I also added some flower pearls, blue and pink organza ribbon and double bow and some punched butterflies.

I have a feeling that my crochet work is not that impressive but I am still learning so I can only get better, right, lol.
I decided to do my own thing again and crocheted a, cross body messenger style bag, I used black and orange for the colours, I used the Magic Circle technique to make two faux buttons, the flowers I followed a pattern on You Tube by Hectanooga, the orange flower is smaller as I used a smaller hook and only one yarn of wool, for the larger flower I decided to use both the black and orange wool together and did a longer loopy chain.  I used the two yarns to chain the long handle then added some tassels.  After I finished the bag I then decided to do a mobile phone case holder using orange as the main colour then black for the faux button.
I would like to enter this project into the following challenge

I think I have managed to visit all my friends who left me comments on my previous posts, unfortunately I am a little overwhelmed at the moment with all the changes that are going on in blogland.  My mind is not performing as well as it was and I am finding it difficult to work out all the different postings that are happening not only in blogger but also bloglovin and google plus, in fact I am feeling a bit like I am being drowned, I do hope that I do not meet my demise in the land of blog.
I am so very grateful for you all who take time out to come and visit me it means the world to me to have your support and encouragement the comments are always so lovely, so thank you.

Your card is gorgeous sweetie, I adore your clever layout with the frames. Do not put yourself down Hun, your crochet work is awesome. I love this new one you have posted, a really gorgeous creation. I know what you mean about blogland at the moment, I am on bloglovin and was considering joining Google + but I think it might confuse me. There are a few people that haven't joined bloglovin and I have to comment on them through Google as I can read their blog but not comment through bloglovin. Don't know what I am going to do in July though.

Gorgeous card with a lovely cute image and super colours Lorraine. So sorry you are feeling overwhelmed with everything - that's why I just stick to Blogger blog (no Bloglovin, no Facebook). Congratulations on being a winner this week on Brenda's blog. Hope you are having a good weekend and enjoying this lovely weather.

Oops forgot to say lovely crochet bags.

Janette said...

This card is just adorable I love the colours and the design. Such lovely embellishments. A well balanced card. I really do wish I could crochet too.

Karen Petitt said...

Gorgeous card, thank you for the link so I could get the free frame! Beautiful crocheting - stop putting it down I loves what you make with your crochet needle and if I lived near to you I would be pestering you for lessons and bringing my Eddy to play with your wee Jessie.
You aren't the only one Lorraine. My google follow button seems to disappear and reappear and I've joined Blog Lovin and been trying to remember to click on my friends blogs to make sure i get to follow them still - it's all so blooming confusing and most of it goes over this crafters head.
I don't want to hurt you hun but I'm worried about you. I think you are mourning the loss of Polo. I think it is colouring your view of blogland and all that associated stuff. You know where I am if you want to talk and my email can be found on CCC. Sending you huge hugs Karen xx

Your card is so pretty Lorraine, I love your sweet image and lovely papers and embellishments.
I love your crochet bag and phone case, the black and orange combination is stunning - I think you are really clever being able to design your own crochet projects.
Take care of yourself and try not to feel so overwhelmed - just take your time, we will still be here.
