Here we go!

Wow! Who would have thought that a social stamping outing would lead to this. Not me! It all began about 2 years ago when I first went to a stamping day run by a lovely lady named Cheryll.

Cheryll's patience, kindness and great sense of humour opened up to me this wonderful, addictive craft. When I'm not stamping/cardmaking, I'm thinking about it. Yes, I did say addictive. So, a big thanks goes out to you Cheryll.

I have always loved paper, colour and being creative. B.S.(or Before Stamping) I always enjoyed working with colours by crocheting and knitting, and having two Grandmas and a Mum who were avid bakers also developed a love of cooking. I have started this blog to share some of my creations with you.

So, if you like variety and enjoy a crazy sense of adventure, come back and visit often, because you never know what ya gunna get!

Here we go! What I have to share with you today is a card. Surprise, surprise! I made this card for my Mum for Mother's Day this year. It is called a flower pot pocket card. A tutorial for this card can be found on the Splitcoaststampers website.

I made the pot following the instructions and then stamped the flowery swirls with brown ink and added dots with a white gel pen. Inked the edges with brown and then made up the insert. With the insert in the pot I added the flowers.

The paper flowers were an assortment from my stash. The large yellow flower was originally white, I inked the edges with yellow and pink. I layered the flowers together, I used a daisy paper punch to punch out the centers.

I added two of the flowers to the insert and one onto the pot itself. I then added the strip of designer paper and glued on the yellow ribbon bow.

Mum absolutely loved it! Hope you enjoy the first creation I have shared with you. In my next post I will show you the present I made for Mum to go with her card.

Please feel free to leave comments.

Thanks for popping by and happy creating!!!
