Exercise in Patience

This is the card that I made for Jenna for Valentine's Day. I couldn't decide what to make her, but she really loves the Rileys from Hanna Stamps. Even though this isn't really a Valentine stamp, she will love it. She is a typical nine year old girl and loves pinks and purples. The paper here is DCWV, brads are from Making Memories and the ribbon is from Hobby Lobby. I colored the image with Prisma markers and then went over the knitting needles with a Spica gel pen. Notice the pink and purple yarn?

Are you wondering about the title of this post? It ties in the with card and my afternoon. Samantha has been begging me to teach her to crochet and for months I have been saying "one day" for about six months now. Tuesday we were in Wal-Mart and happened to be in the craft area (I know, shock, right?). She saw the yarn and sighed like only a six year old can and said "I guess I will ever learn how to crochet" and then sighed again. It was quite dramatic but it did the trick. I explained, again, that it would take a little while to learn. She was one happy little girl picking out her bright colored yarn. Today was our first lesson. Samantha wants to make a blanket for one of her Web-Kinz and Jenna wants to make a scarf with her pink and purple yarn. So that was my day, hope you had a great one too!

Awwww! I didn't learn how to crochey until I was about 20, and then I taught myself! I've tried teaching some of my adult friends, and judging from how that went, I can't imagine trying to teach a child. LOL! :) Good luck, and super cute card, too!
