A Basket of Flowers

Good morning! As I mentioned last week, life has been a bit hectic, as I am sure it is for many people at this time of year. Kyle had 3 days of golf tryouts and practice that seemed to take over my life......temporarily.....because he didn't make the team. : ( Cortney had her Sweet 16 pool party with her friends this past Friday. (Her birthday was in May......I am just a wee bit late! ; ) And now my mind is on school. I did a bit of shopping for my classroom and this week my goal is to get my room set up and ready.

So on to my card shall we? ; ) I used Pop up Neighborhood for the basket. It was cut at 2 1/2." I love how dimensional it is! I popped up each piece and swiped all the sides with white acrylic paint! I added a piece of vintage lace and tied my black twine through the handles. The flowers were all cut using the Flower Shoppe cartridge. I used the Sunflower cut in various sizes. I used a bit of deeper yellow for the edges to give the flowers a bit more depth.
The tag was cut using the Sentimental's Cartridge at 3/4". I usually cut a whole 12 x 12 sheet of paper of different sized tags and place them in a little bucket for future use! It is a great time saver!


Thanks for hanging in there with me! I always appreciate your visits!!! Have a wonderful rest of your weekend! : )

A bright and sunny basket is so cheerful. I will be making a bunch for tags today. That is such a good idea!
