I sure hope you had a wonderful Easter!  It was a lovely day here and very relaxed.  I even managed to get a little fun crafting time in.

I came across this fantastic cut file on the SVG site.  It"s a kit for for Mother's Day, but I used it for a birthday.  I have a sweet Aunt who will be 90 next weekend and I needed something special for her, and this is perfect.  All the pieces were cut with my Cricut except the base....  I only have the 6x12 mat and because this is a large shape fold card I had to do some "fanigalling" as my Mom used to say!  I cut only half of it then laid it on my paper and drew around it.  I then flipped the pattern it for the reverse image opposite the one I just drew, then cut it out by hand and folded it in half.  A bit of extra work, but, hey, it worked great. I used dew drops for the center of the flowers and stamped the sentiment.  This is my first attempt at the flowerpot type card and I know I'll be making more of them, I really like them!
