Love and Mom

Hello all and Happy Tuesday. Today I have two cards to share:

The first is "Mouse Love" that uses the incredibly cute Valentine's Basket Mouse and lots of distressing:
This week, Bugaboo is sponsoring the challenge at Digital Tuesday: DISTRESSED. I also used Cricut Cart Mickey Font (at 1" in both regular and shadow) and distressed the letters.

This also meets the following challenges:

My next card features a new release at Bugaboo Stamps. I printed this out on Kraft from PTI and then again in yellow and paper pieced. The top portion is colored with Prisma Pencils which show up really well on kraft.
And guess what? I crocheted the purple flower myself! While I was home with Sprout, my Ma came over everyday and she brought me a hook and yarn and taught me the basics. Yet another reason I'm grateful for my Ma! BTW - there is a lot more inspiration using this new release at Catch the Bug.

This meets the following challenges:

What a wonderful ma you have, I love this card.. Did you have a pattern for this adorable little flower.. I would love to make some, but i am the kind of person who has to have directions... Would love to have the directions.

I swear I thought I left a comment on the MOM card but now I was dreaming I guess. I use to crochet and forgot how but never did a flower. I'm left-handed and want to do flowers like you for my cards. (Hard to find instructions for left-hand people...lol So now you are going to school, taking card of family, new baby AND crocheting...wow I also love the darling mouse in cup...I must have missed that image along the way. I must find and earn and do a card with him.
