Bonjour! 14

Bonjour!

Hello Girl Friends! I made this card for my bestest girlfriend / sister, Tina. :) This card has a little of my creativity, as well as hers! Tina crocheted the fleurette for me! :) I am one of eleven children, (6 girls & 4 boys). My mom, who has since passed on, taught all 5 of my sisters how to crochet. I am the only girl who did not learn, so that's where I can combine her creativity with mine. :) The step-by-step fleurette directions can be found on Nichole Heady's website (Tina used a size 7 crochet hook & Aunt Lydia's crochet thread). The sketch layout is inspired by Laura's Sketch 28 found at 2Sketches4You. If you would like to see many creative cards, I recommend visiting 2Sketches4You website. I hope you like my creation! Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog and browse. Please feel free to show me some love & leave a comment! Always nice to hear from you! :) Be Sweet! Until next time...

Beautiful, Mona! So you didn't learn to crochet. You still could. That is a craft I can do also. Very cool, that you have a big family. I am sure you appreciate it. Like I said, "Love your card!" You do such a great job on all of them.

Wow, Mona, I didn't know you came from such a large family! You probably picked up alot of your creativity from each of your siblings, maybe? I am totally overwhelmed by this card. It is stunning! An award winner! And you present it so well. Evrything in the photo compliments the actual card. A professional could not do a better job! Way to go, girl!

Hi Girls! Thanks so much for visiting my little spot on the www! :) I am really flattered with all of your positive responses! My husband surprised me the other day with a photo light tent set up! That makes a world of difference on how your creation looks when you take a photo. Thanks for all your support! :) Hugs, Mona
