Circles, circles, circles

Do you see a theme here?  The design paper has circles, the crocheting is circular and the embossing is tiny circles.  Again, I've used the Eyelet Circle as my base for this crochet and I'm really excited about some of the new Spellbinder dies to use for this purpose. The crochet pattern is:  sc in first hole *(chain 3, sc 5 times) chain 1, sc in next hole (repeat from * around).  The second row was sc in first chain 3 space, *chain 3, sc in next chain three space (repeat from * around).  I used a #7 crochet hook and two colors of Aunt Lydia's crochet thread.  You still have lots of time to join the Magnolia Stamp Lover's "Primary Colors" challenge, so pull out those red, blue and yellow markers or pencils and get to work.

Paper: DCWV Cotton Bloom Stack, Stash; Magnolia Standing Tall Tilda; Martha Stewart Five Leaf Frond Brach; Stickles:  Silver, Crystal, Yellow, Turquoise; Spellbinder Eyelet Circles, Standard Circles Large; Aunt Lydia's Victory Red and Golden Yellow Crochet Thread; Fiskars Bubbles Embossing Plate; Copics: [Skin E000, E11, R20][Hair E30, E21, E33][Pants Y17, Y38, Y15, Y13][Shoes E59, E57, E55][Scarf B16, B06, B37][Shirt R29, R24][Background B16]


  1. A beautiful card. I love the crochet technique, but I cant use spellbinders. I have a Cricut and only George Basic. I am thinking that I could die cut a circle and punch the holes myself.
    Thanks for the inspiration.
