Flower Pot Card

P1020148

                  I think I’m getting Spring Fever !!!
I’ve been cleaning out some areas in my craft room that were over flowing with great supplies but things I haven’t used in quite awhile. I decided it needs to go in a yard sale so hopefully some ladies can get some good out of my buying binges … Am I the only one who does that !!! So many things I “gotta have” but once I get it I don’t know what to do with it so it just sits waiting for me to create something with it … I worked hard so I’m taking a little break & decided to make a “Spring” card today. Some of the pictures seem a little small tonight but you can click on them to make them larger.

P1020150

This is called a “Flower Pot” card & I’ve seen a few out there but wanted mine to be a little larger. I needed it to be 5 inches wide so I could use my new Ribbon border die I just got from my local scrapbook store, Memory Lane … I LOVE this die & was lucky enough to be there when they just got them in … The tag is another new die I got at the same time. It matches the ribbon die & I stamped a sentiment on some vanilla cardstock  & cut it out with my Wizard …Oh my, I bought that from the same store too …
Can you tell I love to shop !!! Sorry Jay but at least I don’t drink or gamble . I do think those addictions would be cheaper than this one but I LOVE what I do & remember he tells me if it makes me happy I SHOULD buy it. I smile again when I think he doesn’t know just “HOW” happy I am !!!

P1020151
Now you can see that beautiful matching tag … I stamped the sentiment on it & then attached a Prima flower to it so I could pull it out of my “flower pot” … Then it just pops right back inside nestled among the rest of the spring bouquet … 

P1020152

I inked around everything with SU Creamy Caramel to add a little interest to it ...

P1020149

Here’s a close up of the sweet little mini Tilda sitting here waiting for spring … I got her from Diana at Magnolia-licious   … Another wonderful place to shop …

  16. This is beautiful Janie, I love the glimmer mist on the flowers, they really sparkle. I've been having a look at your blog and it's nice to see another Magnolia addict! Your cards are fabulous and the detail on each one is amazing. (ps love the quilt your daughter made you, don't suppose she has one in a coffee latte colour to match my bedroom that she'd like to donate!!! It is beautiful, she is very talented, like her mother). Have a great Sunday. Annette xx
