Rainy Day Flowers!

Happy Wednesday everyone!!!

Izzy is on the mend today! Yay!!! She pretty much slept all day yesterday, but today she is bright eyed and bushy tailed. Of course she is super duper cranky because she doesn't feel 100% but hey it is progress! LOL! She has been coloring and harassing Tuxy pretty much all day. She is going through a stage where she doesn't want Tuxy to be anywhere near her. She shuts the doors so he can't come in and then tries to get him to move wherever he is laying down. Poor dog can't get any rest.

Well since today is Wednesday that means it is Watchadoin' Wednesday over at Storage Units, Inks and More! We have a great challenge for you this week, Flowers!

The weather is so up and down these days around here. One day it is 82 the next it is 32! I am so ready for warm weather. That is where the inspiration for this week's challenge comes from. Help brighten my day by creating cards with a flower theme! I am so ready to do some gardening and see some green grass and smell some sweet flowers. I hope this will hold me over, lol.
Thanks everyone, have fun with this one. When uploading to an on line gallery please use the keywords SUINKWWC38. Can't wait to see what you come up with. Don't forget to leave a comment so we can check out your fabulous ideas and ohhhh and ahhhhh. And be on the look out for the DT samples. They are always fabulous, don't you think?

So with that being said I decided to make a flower pot card! And here it is!



I just love these cards! They are so fun and easy to make! Directions can be found here. Following the pot directions, I made my pot out of a piece of Making Memories double sided DP and punched it with my scalloped edge punch from EK Success. I then made my insert from a piece of blue card stock and some white card stock. For the flowers themselves I used my shapeabilites and punched out blue card stock flowers and DP flowers along with green leaves from green card stock. I added buttons to the centers to give them some character. To complete my card, I stamped the first part of the sentiment from Rain, Rain, Go Away by Storage Units Inks and More on white card stock and mounted it on a piece of green. I then punched a hole in the end and ran a piece of green stitched ribbon through it. I completed the card by stamping the rest of the sentiment on the inside. A quick and fun "thinking of you" card.

Now it is time to check out the rest of the DT's creations!
Thanks for stopping by and make sure you have collected your letter today for the Club Anya giveaway! Smiles!

So sorry to hear Izzy hasn't been feeling well sweetie but good to hear she is doing better. I know from personal experience that the cranky days are the beginning of the end of sick little ones. You don't want to have Dyanne in your house the first day after she's been ill either :S. Love this project!! So much fun and I adore how the flowers come out of the pot and have a message hidden beneath them. So creative as always!! I hope you are having a fantastic weekend sweetie!!


Heather said...

Hey You,

This turned out really cute!!! What is up with you?? Not feeling good or Izzy not well??? I called like 5 or 6 times Friday and Saturday but you never returned your calls???

I hope everything is doing O.K. and you had a good weekend.

I am going to take Willow to Pre-school, and then go over to Emily's to take her stamps and then pick Willow up and then I will be home after that.

Beautifully done Jana. I have to laugh at you saying how the dog can't get any rest. My son does that to both dogs and the cat. Sad thing is he is nine and has been doing it to them since he was just crawling, lol. He did not ever out grow it, thinks it's fun. I always say it is because he is an only child and really want someone to play with beside me, lol. Hope your sweetie is feeling better.
