Happy Spring!

After this long snowy winter, I’ve been holding up pretty well. Mother Nature teased us with a couple gorgeous beautiful 50 degree days and now I have a bad case of spring fever! What better way to brighten the indoors with a fun bright bouquet of flowers. Since the climate here isn’t suitable for flowers yet, I decided to create my own, including the watering can to display them in! I even brought in the bees! :-)

I saved the pattern for the watering can some time ago. I’d love to give credit where credit is due, but I honestly don’t remember.…I’ve since learned to write these things down! Please accept my appology.

Using my Doodlecharms and Walk in my Garden cartridges, I cut a variety of flower shapes with my Cricut Expression. Adhering multiple layers gave my flowers dimension.

How about a couple cute little bees for fun and whimsy! I stamped two images for each bee. I cut a long piece of craft wire and wrapped it around a pencil a few times to create the curls. After cutting out the image and preparing the wire, I applied a layer of adhesive to the bees and adhered them back to back, sandwiching the wire in-between.

Have a fabulous day! Thanks for stopping by!
