April Stamp of the Month Bloghop

Welcome to the April Stamp of the Month Blog hop.  The featured stamp set is called Flower Pot.  Just like our weather here in NC, this set reminds me of summer and it is my favorite stamp of the month set in our spring catalog!  Because the set reminded me that it is almost time to plant summer flowers, I decided to use it to make a card/seed packet holder to send some seeds to a friend who's garden got flooded out last year.  I won't send the seeds shown in the packet right now but I had those on hand for the photo :)!  I want to find my friend some perennial seeds.

For the card I used the Veranda papers, a colonial brad and ribbon.  Here's a pic.

Thanks for stopping by.  

Now it's time to hop on over to see Kimberly Smith's artwork.

Next on the list after Kimberly is Lori Brown.

Have fun!
