Crafters of Faith: May Flower Baskets!

Hi there!!  It's the last day of the month which means the Crafters of Faith have a post for you today! :)  And this month, our hostess is none other than the wonderful Patti!


Before I get started, I have to say Patti is one of the sweetest friends I have met in blog land!  We started posting awhile ago and she answered 'the call' to join the COF over on SCS and I was so excited!  Little did I know then that I would be so blessed by her caring nature, her constant smile, unassuming gentle way and love of life. She is never without a kind word to share, a big hug to give, a hand to lend, and just all around one of the BEST gifts God has graced me with in my life!  A true blessing you are to me, Patti - and I thank you for being you! xoxo


So, off to our challenge this month!  I loved it!  Here it was her challenge for us is: 

"Ok I got it! When my kids were little they made May flower baskets. They would hang them on a couple of the elderly neighbor's doors, knock and run! It was so much fun! So I want to see May flowers in baskets... either stamped or 3D which ever you want! I can't wait to see what you come up with! {{{Hugs}}}"

Don't you just love it this challenge!  So I was a wee bit stumped on the basket part and had all these grand ideas in my head until I actually had to make them, hee hee!  I'm swamped this week with end of the school year and hope that I did okay by making a template of a flower pot (hanging on a picket fence) and my die cut stitched flowers with button centers using delicious dies from The Scrapping Cottage!  My card is fairly simple as I let the flowers be a focal point and propped them up on 3D dots for dimension.  









Be sure to stop by and see what the other Crafter of Faith sisters have created this month! You can find them off to the right in my side bar :)


Big hugs!

Bigger Blessings!

  1. Kelly, this is so so cute! And so is your new blog look. Which has probably been around for a while, but I've missed it because of being so busy.
    Isn't it wonderful to have such cozy Christian friends? Glad you've been blessed so beautifully.
