MFP May Blog Hop - Day 3

Welcome to the MFP Stamp Shop May Blog Hop

 This month's new Stamp Set Releases are:

Featured May 26 - Tree Scene

Featured May 27 - Animal Birthdays

Featured May 28 - Pots and Vases
 I had some fun with today's set. I ended up with two cards - one using a glass vase and the other two pots. 
For my first card with the vase I used flowers from the set called Lots of Words. I used some Card Candi and a border punch.

For my second card I also needed to pull out the Bring on the Sun stamp set. I am not sure if anyone in the USA knows of Bill and Ben the Flowerpot Men - a TV show when we were kids - Black and White and you can see the puppet strings! As you can imagine they were made of flower pots and were called Bill and Ben. The flower was called Little Weed. They lived in two big pots at the bottom of the garden and got up to their antics when the gardener wasn’t around. It was a program (part of our Watch with Mother series) that used to be on the TV when we were kids. It was all so innocent! My brother gets this card when he turns 60 later in the year.
 This card was watercoloured.
