“If you live to be 100, I hope I live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without you.”
~Winnie the Pooh
I used the layout for this Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge, and the colors are from Stacey's fabulous Jewelry Color Inspiration Challenge. Boy was it a challenge for me! A few weeks ago I was seeing these cute littel crocheted flowers everywhere, and I wanted some. Too bad I could only find them to win, or for sale. So I sat down with some yarn from my stash and a small crochet hook and gave it a shot without a pattern. I'm not loving all the ones I came up with but wanted to use one on a card anyway. I'll probably give it a try again and see how they turn out with a bit of tweeking. If you do have a pattern to share, please do!
My card is larger than I normally do (just under 5 x 6 1/2) because at 105+ Aunt Greta's eyesight isn't the best (she's in a nursing home now) and I write large so she can read it without waiting for someone to come by and read the mail to her. I've been writing to her for almost ten years now, since I was a freshman in college and discovered there's nothing worse than an empty mailbox! Since them I've tried to write a weekly or biweekly letter and it's a good outlet to send off many of the cards I've made. So here's to birthday celebrations and family...enjoy!
