Sarah Kay wkly: Charming crochet?!

Managed to take part in a Sarah Kay challenge this week (I keep running out of time!) and luckily this weeks theme was to use charms which made it easier as I didn't have to tax my lil brian to get my bits to fit a sketch! As I've mentioned I've been making more crochet flowers and experimenting with different thickness of yarn as I've been struggling to find nice thiness cotton crochet yarn in pretty colours (any suggestion anyone?). I have very thin in some pastel colours but I wanted more colours in a slightly thicker gauge but what I got is a tad too thick and gave me a whopper of a flower! However I wanted to use it so based my card round it as it matched the bit of scrap DP I had left over from the other day. Sarah Kay stamp (yeah, I've used them all now :) ) coloured with promarkers, papers are Cosmo cricket 'Honey Pie', charms and metal embellies from candy I won off Camilla (must find some more, love them!), flourishes are an Inkadinkado clear stamp set.

Did you see the 200m men's final yesterday? A-mazing!
