Made For Mom Blog Hop

Welcome to Funky Cards
Made For Mom Blog Hop
Featuring the Crazy About Cricut Thankful Thursday DT
Thank you Jenny for letting me participate as a guest designer along side your amazingly talented design team.  If you arrived from Cheryl's blog you are in the right place, if not, head back to Jenny's blog so that you don't miss any of today's fabulous projects.

For those of you who know me, you know that I love crafting with my mom.  When I was asked to be in this blog hop, I knew right away what I wanted to do. I had an empty container that I had been wanting to repurpose.  With a little paint, some vinyl, a paper flower, and some real flowers, I knew I could make a gift for my mom.  

This is never going to hold shampoo and lotions again!  The old flowered design had to go and a fresh coat of white primer had to be applied first.

Once this was done the pink coat and purple dots could be applied.
Using the Jubilee Cricut cartridge, the phrase "Let Your Ideas" was cut at 1.25" and the word "Blossom" was cut at 2," (all from vinyl).  Since we craft together, I came up with a sentiment that made sense for the craft room!

"Let Your Ideas Blossom"

The only thing left to do was add a paper flower and a variety real blossoms.  With the exception of the African Violets, I picked all of the others flowers and herbs out of our yard.  Happy early Mother's Day Mom.  I Love You!

  5. I simply love your repurposed metal flower pot! Awesome idea. I love the beginning of Spring, a lot because I am sick of Winter, but mainly just watching the flowers trying to pop up out of the ground, and then getting to see that first one!!! SO exciting. I usually snap a picture of the first flower and send it to my mama.

  9. I love your idea of repurposing an old container, and the wisdom to use fresh flowers/herbs from your own garden. You are awesome!
    Spring? Love it, I get to dig in the dirt outside and make my own place more inviting to others! Flowers are awesome!!!


  10. Awesome container! It goes perfect with my favorite thing about Spring... the flowers!
