Today I am getting ready for my Mother’s day with a spring strawberry plant for the Silhouette store.  This turned out so cute, it only to me 3 hours to put together, of course a lot of that time is spent inking all the edges. I think my daughter will like it in her kitchen. I thought about putting candy in the pods, but thought the grand kids would take it apart too soon for her to get a good use out of it.

Here is my list of items used:
The paper is from a Stamp n Up. Real red and old olive are the two primary colors.
The silhouette item for this plant is 57287; I went on Jamie Lane web site, Bits of Paper, to get the assembly instructions.



I am entering this in a blog challenge:

This has been a great weekend, my grandson stayed all the time with my husband and I.  He didn't even want to go home after his parents go back.  Great times.
I had a little time to make a card for a sick friend, hope you like it.  I found this wonderful strip sticker with the fence and flowers. I added the chicken from the Country Life cartridge and punched some clouds.


I am entering this in two blog challenges:

I have a wonderful garden this year and have been spending lots of my time in it this spring. The only problem is we are not getting enough rain, so I am watering.  Keeping the weeds out has proven to be a chore.
I did have some time yesterday, because of a cold snap, and spent some time in my craft room.  Here is a lovely card I made. I used some lovely digital doted paper, and flower I got in the Silhouette store. This digital paper is wonderful...with the paper piercing and chalking of the flower edges. Hope you like this one and come again soon to see what else I am working on.


These are the challenges I am entering:
