Bucket of flowers

Hi everyone, seems a long time since I've blogged as I've been on holiday and my last 2 posts were scheduled! We enjoyed a lovely break in a very comfortable cottage in Wiltshire. Mathilda (my Great Dane) particularly enjoyed chasing the pheasants from the garden, the sofa (I did cover it) and the underfloor heating! Even the weather was good to us, it only rained once and the n not for too long!
Today sees the start of our new challenge at Creative Moments, this fortnight the theme is 'anything but a card' which is always a challenge for me! I decided to make a little gift for my lovely friend who always keeps an eye on the house when we're away so I took this little bucket,
which I think once held toiletries, and made a wrapper to decorate it
 the tag is made using a sweet image from Art by Miran, (our Sponsor for this challenge) she's called Pansie and is available here.
I filled it with compost and some tete-a- tete narcissus.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you'll be tempted to join us this fortnight, just click here to be transported to Creative Moments where you can enjoy the rest of the DTs lovely creations and add your own fabulous project!
