Flower Pot Card

This tutorial I found on SplitCoastStampers and liked the idea. Rather than use premade store bought flowers I decided to make my own using punches I had. I punched the flowers using 3 sizes of the same shape punch from patterned paper then distressed all the edges with pinecone ink and bent the petals a bit for dimenstion. Then I layered and offset the flowers and finished them with a small botton in the centre. I also punched some leaves to give it a more finished look. I cut the tag on the front of the flower pot using Spellbinders. I don't remember the name of the stamps I used for the tag or the inside sentiment. It was finished with some dotted green grograin ribbon.

Easter Cupcakes

Just finished making some Easter cupcakes and they turned out pretty cute. Iced them using the grass decorator tip and green icing. Topped with Marshmallow Peeps and a few Cadbury Mini Eggs. Pretty easy.

Pond Pals Baby Quilt

This is a baby quilt I had planned to make for my new grandbaby twins coming home but didn't get it ready in time so it ended up being a Christmas present. Pattern from Quiltmaker magazine I borrowed from a fellow quilter. It combines some paper piecing, applique and blocks. Took forever finding just the right fabrics for all the different parts.
