I have two projects for you today...
A Mother's Day Card... it is a flower pot card.. the top is made of silk flowers. I always put a butterfly on it. I made a few of these for Mother's Day all kinds of flowers. MS border punch, twine, spellbinders labels 11, and tim holtz embossing folder. I found the tutorial for these online but wanted it a little different size so I made it bigger.

My second project is a card for No Diet Day.
It's very simple but cute.
(love that flourish!)

Thanks for stopping by .. head on over to Angie's blog to check out her awesome project!


  1. Very nice job. The embossing and the heart punch on the mother's day card are great! The flourish is so delicate and beautiful on the no diet day card!

  2. I love the "no diet day" card, I celebrate that year round!

  3. What great card ideas! I love how you incorporated the silk flowers into your project and yes the flourish on the diet card. How fun!

  4. Love the flower pt card using the silk flowers was super they look so real remind me of azaleas. Your second card is great love the image and the sentiment.great background paper. Nice hopping with you today!
    Big blog hugs, Janet
