Delicious Doodles - Something NEW!

I am normally quite adequate at crafty things - I can cobble something together and have it look halfways ok anyway.  I have done all sorts of crafts and love finding new things to do.  However, there is one thing I have never really got to grips with.....crochet!  

About a year ago we had the craze for crochet flowers on cards....I can do that I thought....yeah, right, I couldnt!  Years ago, I crocheted a dog blanket, but never mastered granny squares - just straight forward crochet.  

I saw this challenge and decided I would challenge myself to crochet a flower for it....I spent 3 evenings learning how to do it....I spent two of those evenings just doing straight crochet (so I could get the feel for how to hold the yarn and move the hook) and then I made a flower!  No mess, no fuss - just did it!  And it is here on this card!  Yes, it is tiny!  

 To keep going with the same theme, I picked Teri's new image too - I just loved it as soon as I saw it, but just couldnt do the gothic thing to it so I went pink and purple - YAY!

 A little close up of her!

Thanks for popping by today!
