Yes, I know I've not spent much time in my craft room at all this month. The weather has been too great!! Have to enjoy the sun and my flowers, need to put some more in yet.
Anyway, I was asked to make THANK YOU cards for the helpers at our Mom's group at church. Every Fri. morning we get together and there are a group of ladies who take care of our pre-schoolers for us. We then have different activities. Yesterday we filled some pots with flowers for our helpers, so I decided to make the flower pot card for them.

I used SU Kraft as the flower put. Sent it through the cuttlebug with one of the SU texture plates and sponged SU craft choc. chip over it and the scalloped edge. The flowers are SU TIME WELL SPENT colored with SU markers. I just have a few colors in makers, but since I was making 8 cards I wanted to color with markers to make it faster. I also wanted the card to be able to stand up, so I doubled the size of the interior piece and scored it in half to help it stand. So there you have my creation for the month.
Thank you so much for coming by.
I'm actually thinking of changing the name of my blog to something more suitable.
Will talk about that later!
Have a great weekend!

I LOVE making frames. This one is a gift to a special friend who has been a great inspiration to me lately and has helped me get out of my lack of stamping and crafting mojo.

The details are:
For the frame I used the SU TEA PARTY DP. The edges of the frame are sponged with SU Craft Choc. Chip ink. The flourish is also sponged with the same ink.
The image which is a Magnolia image of Tilda with garland, was stamped with VersaFine Smokey Gray and colored with Prisma color pencils and baby oil.
The background fence is a stamp which I found at a local discount store and think it suite perfectly with Tilda. Tilda's dress is paper pieced with the same DP. The flower centers are liquid pearl gold.

Thank you for dropping by! Hope you have a great Sunday!
