Craftwork Cards Plant Pot Card and Tag

Good morning to all my lovely friends and followers this cold Sunday morning. I hope you are all keeping warm and enjoyed a good week . My post today is another of the makes I've done at the craft group I go to, again its something a bit different for me I rarely use kits when everything is matched up but I did enjoy making this pretty card with Craftwork Cards goodies.

The pot with the tag inserted



The pot and tag
 


The box



Pot and Tag Recipe (sounds like a pub!!)

Kraft card shaped pot,tag and box from Craftwork Cards
The papers are from The Potting Shed pad 
Shaped flowers, sentiments and  butterfly are from the same pad
Flourish die is Spellbinders
Flowers are shaped with an embossing and quilling tool
Gems for the centre of the flowers
Matching Card Candi on the box
The card has a stand on the back as well.

Really enjoyed doing this especially the flowers I thought it looked really pretty when I finished it. I've had a busy week doing quite a bit of crafting but not much  I can share till later in the week. I've also been asked to do Wedding Invitations and Order of Service for our friends Daughters Wedding in September. I'm currently gathering all the materials together. They have asked for the same style and colours I did for another wedding a couple of years ago. So that should keep me busy for a few days !!
I hope you all enjoy Valentine's Day we might open a bottle of Champagne later. It won't compare with last year though when we celebrated two Valentine's Days. One in New Zealand and another when we crossed back over the date line and had another celebration in The Cook Islands that was a Special Valentine's Day.

Finally a wish I was here right now photo Cook Islands 14th February 2015 




Enjoy the week everyone keep warm Love and  hugs Carole x

I wish too Carol and will join you as it's so bitterly cold, but an improvement on the rain of late.

I saw this kit on C&C and agree how pretty your card looks with all the coordinating colours and flowers.

Keep warm.
