You have hopped onto Carol Hartery's blog.  

A few days ago Kimber McGray posted a tutorial on how to make ribbon rosettes on the
Scrapbooks and Cards Today blog. Her directions were so clear and easy to follow that I stopped what I was doing and created a ribbon rosette...and another...and another.

I made a flowerpot card using a pattern I created over a year ago from a card that my friend Susan sent me.



I cut a gift tag from white tag and stamped Denami Design’s “hey chickie” message stamp and Denami Design’s “Chickie with a flower” stamp onto it.
The flowers pull out of this interactive card and you could stamp one of Denami Design’s many message stamps onto that part of the card. You could also use the flowerpot as a gift card holder.



I created a second card for this hop and used the Denami Design birthday circle stamp and the Denami Design chickie with balloon stamp on it.

Have a wonderful day.

Both cards are awesome, Carol, but yours always are. Love how the first one can be a pocket card for the sentiment or writing. The second one is just so uplifting and cheerful!!
