Spring Basket

Greetings and thank you for stopping by my blog.

I thought I would create a fun Spring basket.  To make die cutting the flowers quicker I folded the card stock in half, that way it die cut twice as many flowers. I added Nuvo Crystal Drops to the centers and used the Trailing Vines as the branches.

Weekend Adventure
Roozengaade - Daffodil fields Mt Vernon, Washington
15867 Beaver Marsh Rd, Mt Vernon, WA 98273
There are several different growing fields where thousands of Daffodils can be seen from the road.

We drove by a farm house where there are two large trees in the front yard, each tree had 3 Bald Eagles (sorry I typed Golden but they are Bald Eagles)
The Washington Kingston Ferry coming into the terminal.

    I love that basket and flower die. Great idea to cut them twice...saved a lot of time!

    I must live fairly near you. I am in Langley, B.C. and we are about 40 minutes from Bellingham!
