A bit of fab news

Evening Folks
Hope you have all had a good weekend.  Weather wise it has been glorious, lots of lovely sunshine.  Went out for a meal last night.  As it is my birthday on Tuesday my daughter came home from university for the weekend.  We went to our local Indian restaurant and had a super meal.  There were 13 of us there and we managed to see off 7 bottles of wine so a good night had by all lol.

Anyway, onto a bit of news that I have been waiting to share with you.  Let's Ink It Up challenges recently had a DT call.  A few days ago I was delighted when I was invited to join the very talented design team there.

Let's Ink It Up run a monthly challenge and is a rubber stamping only challenge blog - no digi images allowed.  The next challenge starts on Sunday 4th March so check back then to see my first DT project.

Been busy doing some DT work today so no new card to share.  However, I would like to share something with you.  I really like all the little crochet flowers that are appearing on some cards at the moment.  Well, I can crochet but haven't done for many years.  So this morning I went to my local craft shop and bought some crochet hooks, wool and some patterns.
Had a go tonight and this is my first attempt.
I completed the large pink circle first and then did the smaller green one.  Think they would look quite nice singly with a button or brad for the centre too.  Surprising how quickly it all came back to me as I have not done crochet for years.  Will certainly be checking out more patterns and designs.  So look out for them appearing on a project soon.

Thanks for popping by and I would like to welcome my new followers. Your support and encouragement is much appreciated.  Thanks also for the comments you leave me.  I do enjoy reading them all.
Take care

Hi Mags
I'm totally jealous, I've been trying to teach myself to crochet and although I've mastered a few stitches I still haven't quite managed to make a flower :O(
Still, if at first...
