Wood You Be Mine and Mo's Party

Mo's Pinnochio

Each month I am challenging myself to try a different "craft" besides
cardmaking.. This month I chose crocheting.  I have had this idea in my
head from the very first time I saw Mo's Pinnochio image..  I found a
few tutorials out there for crocheting a heart and just went for it.
This one is hanging from his nose.. I love it when I can just stamp for
fun and I am having so much fun trying new things..This is for my 
hubby..I thought it was manly enough.

2 RAK's were used here.. The heart border punch was in a terrific
package that Lisa Lara sent to me.  The second is this awesome paper
that my sweet friend Nikki Tanner sent me for my birthday..

Mo has some fun stuff planned for her 6 month anniversary and for
1000 fans over on PCP.  So if you are not a member GO THERE NOW. 
MO's PCP GROUP.. she has a new FREEBIE... The Design teams will
be hosting a party.. So stay tuned..

I found some challenges that this fit..
Crazy4Challenges - Valentines

Pile It On -  To the one you love..Valentines
C.R.A.F.T- Valentines
OCCC- Masculine Valentine
Raise The Bar - Hearts
Double Dutch Challenge - Hearts

ETA... here are two crocheting tutorials I used that were very helpful...Julie-K
This one is slightly larger:  Little Birdie Secrets

They both were very helpful....
