Green thumb...








Happy Mother's day to you!  I have a summer bloom to share today!  Hmmmm....green thumb?   I thought I was until I moved here in the high desert of Oregon.  We have such varied temperatures that it can easily dip down low even in Summer.  It once snowed on fourth of July.  Sooo I created my own little bloom here using a fabric layered flower, a wooden pot, stamps, and some sweet RRR ribbons.  Some layered papers with embossing were my starting point.  Followed by a stamped border of spades and trowels.  I even stamped on my pot with a grass image.  I used Moss green seam binding to wrap around the card and tied bows to the side.  I added Carolina white lace to the bottom for softness and  added a bit of Green apple bakers twine  to  the pot with a mini tag that says grown with love.  Hope you enjoy and have a wonderful Mother's day!  hugs, cherry

Blue in every possible shade is my favorite color and paired up with green this card made my jaw drop. You have a perfect eye for mixing and matching. Gorgeous details!

This is so sweet and charming! I love anything garden themed and it is the hobby I spend most of my time on during warm weather! Love it!

I didn't know you were in Oregon. My sister Beth is in Eugene and I am in Seattle. Small world!
