Porch Play Inspiration



Good morning everyone....hope you are having a great week!!! I am going to take Mom and Dad to a nursery this morning to pick out a couple of bushes. They have a planter on the south side of their house that needs a little color...hope we can find something that will withstand the 100+ degree summer weather with full sun!! Their backyard looks sooo pretty with all the blooming iris and amarillas....I just love Spring!! Anyway....


I was really inspired by the Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger Porch Play...such beautiful colors!!! I used the Card Positioning System's #213 sketch and Incy Wincy Designs Challenge to use flowers, also.

The Papertrey Ink Green Thumb flower images were stamped on white cardstock .... the flower and flowerpot were stamped twice and popped up on foam dots. Sewing was done around the background blocks and buttons and twine finish it off.

Recipe: Stamps: PTI Green Thumb, Paper: White, Tempting Turquoise, Memory Box Brioche dp, Ink: Certainly Celery, Poppy Parade, More Mustard, So Saffron, Accessories: Buttons, Baker's Twine, MS Butterfly Punch, Sewing Machine, Nestabilities

Thanks for stopping by...have a great day!!!
