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.

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 !!!

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 …

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

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 …
