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!

It is such a lovely flowerpot card Rosella! And I agree, when the weather is great and the flowers are blooming, it is much nicer to enjoy that. There will eventually come grey days when we feel more for making cards. Enjoy the sunny days!

I loved the first flower pot card you made and this one is just as lovely. Little subtle changes and it's a different card, brilliant.
Glad to see you crafting but just as equally glad to hear your out in the garden. We've just bought a little Bistro table and chairs, Alex and I sat and ate our dinner out there, it was lovely.
Take care & keep smiling
