Inspired By #22

Welcome to another Inspired By Challenge.  I can't believe we are in May already and of course that makes me think of May flowers - although we have yet to see much sun or warmth here!

Don't you just love all the pretty colors in this! Of course you could also go with a gardening theme, polka dots, flowers... Can't wait to see what you do.  Now once again, since this is the first of the month there will be a prize so be sure to play along!

Here is what I created for my project, I went with the gardening theme and made a Mother's Day gift.  I wrapped a mason jar with burlap.  The 'tag' is actually a little envelope (PTI die) and inside I will put a Gift Card to my MIL's favorite nursery, along with a bouquet of flowers.  The gloves on this tag are cut with my Freshly Picked Cricut cartridge and the papers are Echo Park This and That. This is also for the Shopping Our Stash challenge - Mother's day

Now I can't wait to see what you do!

ok, not that i don't sort of *GENERALLY* crave a cricut... but i think those cute little gloves may have just TOTALLY enabled me over the edge!!!!!! :) :) :)

this whole entire PROJECT is gorgeous, tho, and has made me think about "dressing up" the flowers (or plants) i often buy on impulse... thank you thank you... great ideas and inspiration as always!!! ♥
