Day #1 Flower Pots


I made a flower pot using the tutorial, BUT I put it on a card.  Since I've moved to Florida, I have never seen morning glories.  I'm sure they're here somewhere, but I've never come across them.   When I lived in Pennsylvania, we had them growing wild along the wall by our driveway.   So . . . I potted some and set them on a wall.  (Okay . . . they're made of paper, but they're still pretty!)  I added some punched greenery and ivy.  My wall is a Darcie's embossing folder I found in Joann for $2.50!!!



Hop to these designer blogs today!
