Love is in the little things




Good afternoon everyone, hope you all had a good weekend and still enjoying some nice sunny weather.  Hubby is off to hospital very shortly for a little procedure to be done, so I thought I would post this before I take him as I could be there for hours (groan!!!) ....... but it has to be done and I think he will be glad to get it over with............ he will be sedated so shouldnt be too bad for him.

My card for today is intended as an anniversary card for my daughter and SIL and as soon as I saw this gorgeous new die from Marianne I just had to have it (as you do!!).

The flowers are Wild Orchid and the sentiments are both Lili of the Valley.

Well better dash as its almost time, thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of your day

Hugs,

Oh Barbara, you card is beautiful! I reckon I NEED that die, its gorgeous! I love how you have made it into an easel card, so so pretty!

Hope hubby's op went ok!

Good luck with the crocheting, hun.....with your treble just wrap your yarn around your hook before you go into the stitch, then pull through the yarn {you then have three loops on your hook} and then just do what you do with the double but twice, {till you have one loop left} if that makes sense LOL. Have a look on you tube, but don't do what I did and watch and american lady do it LOL cos their stitches are diff to uk ones. Their double is the same as our treble, if that helps :o).

Email me if you need any help :o)
