Sweet Celebrate

Happy Monday! Flourishes has been waiting to officially unveil its new home on the web for months and this week we're kicking off Five Days of fun and games to celebrate the big event! Today's challenge is a bit sketchy – literally. PageMaps.com hostess and Flourishes artist Becky Fleck whipped up a special sketch just for our celebration! Use it for your own creation, link up here on this post and you could walk away the winner of our day one drawing for a goody bag from Flourishes. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword FLLCCEL1. You have until Monday, March 15th at 6 PM EST to link up your cards!

I pulled out my fabulous Sweet peas for this sketch. Used a little ribbon and flowers and topped it off with a crochet heart.Now about these little hearts. I dug out my crochet needles and my thread and I made this little hearts that Cassie showed me on her blog. She gave me the link to Little birdie secrets that has a video tutorial on how to make them. Now I haven't crocheted in about 13 years. I did a lot when I was in high school but haven't since. Rather interesting training my hands to not cramp up after 10 min. lol But I did it and I am having fun making these little babies. I want to try the flowers next... EEK... .Now that look hard. haha
Anyways.... Hope you play along in the challenge today and the rest of the week! Lots of fun things happening! Be sure to check out the others creations with the sketch today:
