Not more flowerpot cards!!!!......

Morning Peeps!

Thought I'd come back today and show you a couple more of the flowerpot cards I've been making, and then I won't bore you with them again for a while...... promise, lol! It's just that I had a couple more cards to do, one of which was another retirement would you believe and one for a friend to give to her Mum.

I've used mainly Kay & Co papers but the brown gingham is unknown from my stash. It's nice that I've been able to put a couple of my punches to good use for the flowers and leaves too.... I haven't used the pansy one in ages!

I'm entering my cards into the new Simon Says Challenge where they want us to use lace and pearls.... there are little pearls in my flower centres and although I haven't used any real lace, I think the Martha Stewart punched borders are definitely giving a lace effect..... so I hope that's okay? I'm also entering the Stampavie & More Challenge where this week's theme is 'anything but a card'.

Well I'm making it short and sweet today as I've got lots to do..... the kids are back at school tomorrow and I'm working, groan! Oh the joys of normality and routine..... NOT!!!

Have a great day in the sunshine if you're blessed with some today!!

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx

Love the pansy punch - so pretty and that little butterfly is a real cutie. I like the spotty grungy flowers too and those fabulous leaves.
