Flower pot in bloom seed gift

Have you seen that the Blossom Party Originals die is on special offer as part of the Weekly Deals? It reminded me of a little gift I made for my Stampers 6 club ladies a while ago now. Come and see:

I made a plant pot sleeve using a retired card stock but Crumb Cake or even Cajun Craze would work just as well...

... and attached this fabulous sentiment from Fabulous Florets which I thought was very apt.

I added a riot of flowers and foliage using the Blossom Party die and some couple of punches...

... which I attached to a piece of card stock folded over a packet of seeds to make a tag.

A piece of ribbon threaded through the tag makes it easy to slide the tag out of the plant pot sleeve.

Look at my plant pots, like Mary Quite Contrary's pretty maids all in a row!

Yesterday, we were talking about a trip to a local museum when my husband suddenly remembered a story that had appeared in the news about a museum visitor who tripped over his shoe lace and fell down the stairs. Apparently, as he fell, he knocked a priceless pot off the window sill and it smashed into smithreens. My husband found this very funny but my youngest son took it more seriously. "This is why I always say velcro shoe fastenings are best," he said to me gravely.

See you tomorrow,
