Crochet Crazy!

This card is for 2 challenges. One sketch challenge from Paper Players, and a ribbon challenge from the Ribbon Carousel blog.

I took a "learn to crochet" class at our new Joann's store this week, and I am hooked! (pun intended ;)
So I crocheted some purple ribbon from Hobby Lobby, and wrapped it around itself to make this flower with tails. It looks really cool in real life, if I say so myself.

Paper: Happy Go Lucky: Lime Twist: My Mind's Eye
Stamps: PTI Turning a New Leaf & Fillable Frames sentiment

PTI's Make it Monday #33

This is my card for the Make it Monday Frosted Images challenge. The only craft ink that I have is a SU Old Olive stampin' spot. (I tried the technique with this card, with Memento Rhubarb and white, and when it didn't work, I sponged over it.)
Rubbing the PTI Snow White ink over the top of the old olive did change the color a little, but I like the look with the PTI avocado paper & ribbon. The background paper is from My Mind's Eye: Lost & Found.
I am trying to get used to my new Big Shot, since I blew out the side of my Cuttlebug. I don't know all the sandwiches for everything, so my PTI Impression plate didn't impress very much. Anybody have any tips? Thanks.
Stamps: PTI Turning a New Leaf, and Take Three:Summer sentiment

PP #64 & Friends with Flair

This is my card for the Paper Players Challenge # 64 to use a plant or animal, and the Unity blog's Friends with Flair. So I chose Unity's Feel the Joy flower. I stamped it in Memento Rhubarb, and then sponged Sand ink around it.
The wonderful background patterned paper is by My Mind's Eye: Lost & Found. It is definitely a new "found" favorite! The back side is the black & cream polka dot.

CFC 20 & Moxie Fab Sketch

It is 2 5/8" square. The flower is PTI's Bloom Builders 3 dies, on cream paper, with sponging of Memento Sand ink and SU Close to Cocoa, so that it looks darker at the center.
The background is PTI's Houndstooth in Memento Bamboo Leaves on Cream. The banner is SU Old Olive with PTI Fillable Frames sentiment stamped in PTI Snow White.
It is topped off with a PTI New Leaf button tied with twine.
Happy Anniversary! Michelle & Corey.
