Hi Coops

Sound like you are getting all geared up for your crochet work .. .. I sat and did a flower and a heart a few weeks ago and keep putting them on my work and then taking them off!! LOL!!!

I used embroidery silk for mine.

Loving your card by the way. Gorgeous colours and a scrummy scrim flower.

Have a lovely weekend.
