Sweetheart Potted Flowers

Hello, today I have a Valentine that I created for my son's preschool teacher, his Valentine party is tomorrow in his class.  You've gotta love a bunch of 3 and 4 year olds excited about exchanging Valentines, eating frosted heart shaped cookies and doing Valentine crafts.  My son loves his preschool teacher so much, it's sweet to see him get in his class and run right up to her and give her a big hug.

I followed the tutorial on Splitcoast that you can find here to create a Flower Pot card, this is the first one I've made and it was very fun.  Over the past few weeks I've had the winter blaas, not depressed but just having a hard time creating and its driving me crazy because I want to stamp!  Hopefully I'm snapping out of it and can get back to what I love to do with out feeling like I'm going to tear my hair out just making one card, lol.
Supplies: Sweetheart, With All My Heart, Well Scripted, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Sending Love DSP, Extra Large Fancy Flower punch, Word Window punch, Modern Label punch, Scallop border punch, Satin Ribbon, Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder.  Colors: Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Old Olive.
Thank you for your visit!

Lynn, I love making the flower pot cards... a lot of work but so much fun. Cute story about your son's PS teacher. I'm sure she'll appreciate the beautiful card!

And I totally get what you are saying about the blah's. Yesterday, I finally had a day where nothing was pressing to get done and what did I do? Absolutely nothing! Ack... what a waste. Good luck finding your mojo!
