Mother's Day




This is the gift I sent to my Mom for Mother's Day this year. I found the pattern for the wheelbarrow at this blog. The wheelbarrow is bigger than I thought it would be. I was planning to put a gift card in it, but it just looked silly with all the empty space. I found some large flower seed packets at Home Depot and put them in the wheelbarrow instead. I made a card to go along with it that looks like flowers in a flower pot. I put the gift card in that instead. There are lots of blogs that have directions to make the flower pot card, but I can't remember which blog I got the directions from. The flowers are dry embossed using a Lasting Impressions template. Hope you have a great Mother's Day weekend!
