Hi,hope you had a great weekend. The weather has just been sensational,so managed to get quite a bit of gardening done. Still lots more to do though! I just love when we get to eat alfresco (without layers of jumpers!!).
Over at BBTB2 the challenge this week was to use the cricut cut 'welcome' in your project.
I made a project for My Craft Spot new stamp release this week using the new TBBM2 cart..... I know,still my latest cart addiction I'm afraid!! lol. Anyway,you'll get to see that on Saturday's blog hop,but at one stage the box reopened and the shape it produced gave me this idea for a vase......
TBBM2 - daisy fold box cut at 6.75"
Flower Shoppe - leaves at 2"
Straight From the Nest - Welcome cut at 1",poppies at 2.5"
Heirloom Gold perfect pearls for the poppies
Adirondack paint dabber in Willow for stems
Vanilla crinkle ribbon
I made this with the idea of giving as a welcome gift to a new neighbour. I really like how it turned out,especially the vase part. I was going to put a few tulips in a plastic bag of water inside and decided that I ought to make paper flowers instead. Thought the red was striking until my son asked me why I had put our remembrance day poppies in my vase and it wasn't November?!
Pleased he thought the poppies were so good and explained they were actually a summer flower and then decided I should have made tulips...oh well... they look lovely in my conservatory!!
Jill at Jaihart has a linky party I'm linking this up to. There's still time to link.
Don't forget the stamp release party this week over at My Craft Spot.
The stamps are just fabulous and Kimberly is offering a prize each day.
Thanks for calling by.
