HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!



It is my mom's 88th birthday tomorrow and I made her this watering can with peppermint patty flowers. The flowers and lady bug are some incredible digital stamps from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff. Doodling is a hot trend right now and Lindsay has some wonderful new doodled images. She is also having a terrific sale through the end of May. If you purchase $5.00 in stamps you will get one free!

I printed the flower and ladybug images in a size (~1.5") that would just cover a peppermint patty and glued them onto the top of the wrapper. A lollypop stick was inserted into the edge of the PP. I borrowed some modeling clay from my son, put it in the bottom of the can and inserted the sticks into it. The little flower on the front of the can is the center of the flower cut out of two different patterned papers and layered with pop dots.


How cute is that watering can? I found the template for it at SCS. Sammy_nab provided the template. Take a look at her beautiful sample it is just amazing.




My mom loves roses and gardening so I think she will really like this.
This is a picture of her in front of her new computer.


Happy Birthday Mom, Love ya!
