Flower pot cards seem to be very popular on most blogs at the moment, but I thought I would try something a bit different.
As it is holiday time, what better than a bucket and spade!
Of course it had to be complete with sand to ready for making that all important sand castle.
Pull the spade out of the bucket to reveal a cheeky snail and of course somewhere to write those holiday greetings, usually all about the weather!!

I seen a few of these cute bird boxes made by different people and decided to have a go.
(here is the template if you fancy a go)
I made matching cards using the very sweet Wild About You stamp set from Stampin'Up. I used the flower and bird from the stamp set to decorate the bird houses too.
And of course every teacher needs a memo pad on their desk. So I used the left over coasters from Fathers Day to make some girly memo pads with mini post it's and pens.
And here it is all wrapped up! I hope they like them. The others have been made in different colours (hopefully I'll show you those tomorrow!).
Hope you like them too, why not leave a comment and let me know!

The bit on the right of the card is perforated using the Stampin'Up cutter kit, a fab tool set which includes a cutter, perforator, scoring blade and distressing tool.

This card would be perfect for just that!
The verse is from the SU God's Blessings set and reads "a friend is someone who strengthens you with prayers, blesses you with love and encourages you with hope".
I kept this card simple and cut out some flowers from the SU Tea Party papers and punched some using my SU punches. I added a rhinestone gem and some liquid pearls to add dimension.
Life is still very hectic here as the end of term gets closer, tomorrow I'm going into school to see Samuel's work over the year, I then have my card class and on Friday we hopefully get all the results of Samuel's blood tests.
Hopefully I'll get chance to post again before the weekend!!

This is the result.
These animal stamps are so very cute and so easy as there is no colouring to do!!
Here is a different angle!! I used some liquid pearls from my stash for the flowers centres and on the scallop edges.
Everything else used is from Stampin'Up. If you fancy getting hold of any of it let me know!
I have yet another mad week, with end of year things at school, Samuel's blood tests and doctors appointments, prep for my card class and starting to prepare for our holiday!!! Not sure when I will get any time to craft!

I saw Jules earlier on in the week so I was able to give her her card and gift.
I've used the Fresh Cuts set from the mini catalogue for this card in one Jules fav colours Chocolate Chip, the paper is from the SU designer paper selection in So Saffron and I used my Martha Stewart edge punch to add some extra detail, and the ribbon is Rose Red.
Here is another angle so you can see the knotted ribbon.
Well another fairly busy weekend lies ahead with football and school fates then church and the band playing at the summer praise BBQ on Sunday. I'm just hoping the rain holds off!!

So I took inspiration from the ice cream for this card, and as I don't have a stamp, I had to make it up as I went along. I had seen someone else make the top of a cupcake using the SU scallop edge and scallop circle punches (if it was you then please let me know so I can credit you). So decided to see if it would work for an ice cream!
What do you think?
I used Real Red for the card base, Whisper White, More Mustard for the cone and Pretty in Pink and Bashful Blue for the ice cream. Of course it wouldn't be ice cream without the sprinkles, chocolate sprinkles at that!!!
Here's an arty angle!!!! Not sure why but it looks good!!
