Time's Fun When You're Having Flies

I am having the urge to crochet lately. I need to find a good pattern and get started on something. Maybe some flowers? I love crocheting flowers.

Here's a very short video showing you a Cameo card using a Center Panel Step card cut, some old retired Stampin' Up frog stamps, and a little bit about coloring with a blender pen, colored pencils, and chalks. Enjoy!
