Plant Pots

Hello ...
It's pretty miserable here today, dull and damp but hey! My city of Liverpool has been voted the friendliest city in the UK! 
Well, we are that kind of people....Except of course for the workmen who promised to be here at 8am and now it nearly 10 and still no sign.... Heck I could have had another hour in bed!

So what do you do when you have a little time and a lot of scraps? You make plant pots right? And you pretend it's Spring...


See I had all these flowers that I was going to use on a club project but after cutting them I realised they were far to small and delicate for the group to handle so I drew plant pots and coloured them 


And used up some scraps and left over painted pieces... It got to be addictive


...Before I knew it I had made 4 cards


The pots are covered in glossy dimensional... not that you can really see that
I'll share the others later in the week - One workman has just arrived, sheesh!

Have a fabulous day

Hi Ros. I came over from Inkspirational to tell you how much I love your GD card, and then I ran across these fantastic cards that put a BIG smile on my face. I have been trying to use scraps lately in my cardmaking too, and it really is so fun to take something that was intended for one thing, and comes out as something completly different at a different time! I love all of these and I love the hopeful feeling of the coming of Spring. I love your comment about pretending it's Spring... Thanks for this pearl in my day.

Ack, they're so cute with the birds and the bits of background. Your group would probably love this, but maybe with bigger flowers. Good thing you saved them, 'cause you made such pretty cards!

With less sleep you still are on a roll; your cards are lovely! And a great way to use ythese flowers and some scraps. I especially love the two with that little black bird. Fab!

Cute and adorable and great way of using the left over pieces. Loving the dimensional pots. Brought a warm smile to my face on a damp day. Hope the work is going well? x
