Thank you cards...

Good Afternoon bloggers...
My last day at home crafting, blogging!
I have cut the backs off the littlest christmas cards that we received this year and used my scalloped edged scissors on them. Just need to add ribbon and they are ready to be made into gift tags for next christmas. Next job was to think about some Thank you cards and I saw this flowerpot idea on the Sizzix website.

The flowerpot is recycled from a christmas card and the flowers were a real bargain at a craft fair...a huge bag being sold off for 50p by a crafter having a clearout. My usual buttons in the centres. The finishing touch was a gingham ribbon bow tied around the pot.

and for some challenges..
