Pink Cat Studio Release!!!!

Happy Thursday!!! Today is so beautiful outside,
it's still quite crisp but the sun is shining! 
I have love spring blossoms filling my yard with color...
Melissa newest release from the Pink Cat Studio
will also color your world because it's all about flowers!
These are so versatile, May Day, Mother's day, Father's Day, 
Weddings, Friendships, Just because, Get Well Soon
practically anything that pops into your head.


Aren't these fantastic!!!!
Melissa is so generous that  you can purchase the entire selection o
Kiddies and Flowers for just $9.99 and that saves you $10 bucks!

When Melissa sent me these, I got an idea and just ran with it.
It's a May Day Basket using the freebie Flower Pot with today's purchase:

(click for better detail)

The basket stands about 7 inches tall from the base to the top of handle and 5 inches wide.
The container inside is 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches. 
I printed the image off twice after creating a mirror image with Photoshop.
After coloring I attached each image to two more pieced of card stock for stability 
and cut out. The container is trough like I cut out a 8 1/4 x 2 3/4 strip of paper
and scored down the length of both side in 1/8 in. 
I also scored the width at 3 1/2  and 4 3/4, 
at these score lines I made snips that met up with the length wise score lines.
Make sense?
I attached the container about 1/8th of an inch from the base
using a glue based adhesive. It's narrow at the bottom but widens like a v
towards the top. 
It's plenty big because of the depth of the container.
As an after thought I found a bunch of Bloomin Doodles rub-ons. 
I even placed them on the buttons for fun.
The handle is very basic, its a 12 in by 2 1/2 strip with a 12 x  3/4 in strip and 
layered again with a 12 inches strip of ribbon.
To conceal the frayed edges of the ribbon I affixed 
a solid black floral die cut that emulated the flowers in the digi
and topped it off with a button.
I apologize for not snapping pictures, that is so much easier to follow vs my blabbering!
