Pretty maids all in a row.....

 Everything has been conspiring against me with my Mothers Day gifts this week but I finished these flowerpots today at least.  These are for my sisters and niece and now there's just my Mum's gift to make.  This post of Mandy's gave me the idea.... luckily my Mum doesn't have quite that many grandchildren!

As well as stamps and dies I used wooden kebab skewers and Playdough to construct my flowers in their little clay flowerpots.

After yesterday's gardening post, I found more sleeping ladybirds whilst clearing today.  This one had found a very cosy spot and I was careful not to disturb her/him too much.  Unfortunately I can't say the same for the wasp that had been hibernating in my gardening glove.  Luckily it was too sleepy to sting me properly but I think it got rather squashed by my hand! 

Supplies: Papertrey Ink stamps Rosie Posie, Flower Fusion and Tag-its (sentiments) plus the matching dies


  1. They will LOVE these! And such a cute ladybug house!

  2. Your mother will be PLEASED, I am sure. They are so lovely and she can put them everywhere. Lucky you that the wasp was still sleeping!!!!!

  3. Oh those are so sweet! I think it's a perfect Mother's Day gift. :) And that ladybug photo is absolutely awesome. What a wonderful little resting place.

  4. Ann - I actually 'awwwwed' OUT LOUD when I saw these, they really are the most delightful things I have seen in a while - if I had pinterest I would so pin these, makes me happy just looking at them....basically I like them, a lot. LOL xxx

  5. Oh, these are just sooo cute! What a fabulous bouquet, a great idea for Mother's Day!
    I've been drooling over your Pinterst pages, love your crochet board, not that i can crochet, but I wish I could!

  6. Totally adorable posies! What a fun idea.
