Pennies From Heaven

Welcome to the Hive!  It's Monday, and have you heard the Buzz.... we have a brand new HoneyBee to introduce to you!!! 

We'd like to introduce HoneyBee Judy Ford!
Judy is from Michigan, and winters in Florida.  She is married to Don, and has her amazing 99 year old, card making Mom, Olga, with her.  Her message board name is BigHouse RN because she is a retired nurse from a maximum security prison!!  She is a multi-talented lady, and we're delighted to welcome her to the hive!
Her blog is For Grins and Giggles, and we hope you will buzz over and  leave her some Hunny!
Today Judy is sharing her CROCHETed LUCKY PENNY card and project with us! 

Judy Ford
I am so honored to be invited to be a HoneyBee!  I have been a follower and doing the challenges for some time, and my first project is a crocheted flower with a hidden pocket to hold a lucky penny.  It sits on a special poem matted by a Martha Stewart punch.  The poem reads:
I found a penny today laying on the ground,
But it's not just a penny, this litte coin I've found.
Found pennies come from heaven.
That's what my Dad told me.
He said that Angels toss them down.
Oh, how I loved that story.
He said when an Angel misses you,
They toss a penny down,
Sometimes to cheer you up,
To make a smile out of your frown.
So, don't pass by that penny
When you're feeling blue.
It may be a penny from heaven
That a Angel's tossed down to you.
The instructions on how to crochet the flower holder are detailed on my blog!  They are really easy! 

For my card I used:
MS Punch Round the corner - Double Loops.
Cricut Classic Font for 3 flower border. pg 74
Computer Generated Poem with Print Shop
Bee paper from Tuesday Morning
other paper from my stash
 If you aren't a crocheter... you could display your penny as a center of a flower. Like the Sunflowers from Walk In My Garden or one of the other Cricut flowers. Or use lace or material and make a yoyo. We are only limited by our imaginations!
We'll see you back here on Wednesday to see what the other HoneyBees have done with their Lucky Pennies!!!  Head over to Judy's blog, and get some Grins and Giggles!!
