Gardening for Flowers with da Vudda

Today, as part of the  Teapot Tuesday Challenge and Party at SCS, we are sending our cards to someone who has suffered some set backs in her recovery from surgery.  It happens to be a friend of a dear cyberfriend, so I wanted to be sure to participate.  She loves gardening and flowers.

I used this small set from My Favorite Things as it has an obvious gardening connection.  I added some Primas so I'd meet both parts of today's challenge.  (Although I was slow to realize that the flowers ont he handle actually did that for me.....duh!!!!!)

If you have some time during your busy weeks, you just might want to play along on Tuesdays.  We not only get to do what we love, stamping, but we also are able to make the day of our recipients.  It gives you such a good feeling......I PROMISE!!!!!!!

What a beautiful way to cheer up a
gardener. My spade is NOT that pretty. Plus, it's covered in dirt. LOL
Love your awesome card.

This card is so classy! I love that little trowel, and the paper flower embellishments are so pretty. :)

Hanging my head in shame.. I have not had time in months to participate.. I usually just send a card but don't upload it to SCS. This is beautiful. I would love to have a garden tool like this..
