Spring Flowers are Blooming @ The Crafty Pad

Yes it is ME again! 3 posts for today ... no wonder my house looks like a bomb has hit it lol!

But ... It is still another Sunday !
So ... Let's see what the gorgeous girls at The Crafty Pad are up to this week!

#115 Flowers - Lovely Spring Flowers!

Oh this one is another TOO EASY so no excuse for not playing along with us!

Ms Mojo and I took this one right to the word and measured, designed and created a darling little basket specially to fit a punnet of flower seedlings for my bestest & only sister for Mother's day.

I used my fancy swirl punch to decorate the handle along with some punched butterflies, added some lace around the basket edge that I topped with a run of pearls and on the center of the handle at the top I added a lovely display of flowers with some punched leaves and again some more butterflies. I also made an adorable tag to go with it that I have threaded onto a pearl bracelet with clasp so it is easy to remove.

I used two images today, both from The Crafty Pad; the round image on the basket is  Cat in Window that I have edited out the window and the ticket sentiment on the tag is A Butterfly Came Fluttering By; they can both be purchased HERE.

This week the prize is a  
£10.00 voucher to spend at Crafty Emma's Shop 
 (not including P&P).  

How do you play along with us?
Too EASY - You have till Saturday 8pm GMT to get your entries in and you can play along as many times as you like so long as it fits with the challenge theme!   No Crafty Pad image is required to join the challenge, though we do love to see them if you have any :)

Don't forget The Crafty Pad are running an additional 
BONUS Challenge - ALTER A CD 
that is running for TWO WEEKS!

We sure would love to see you at both!
