My Craft Spot Monday Challenge #6

Mother's Day is this weekend so of course we are honoring the Mom's in our lives this week at My Craft Spot!  The Monday Challenge this week is We Love You Mom!  It can be a card, a gift or whatever you would like to create to show a Mom that you love her!  Here is my Mother's Day creation!
I cut the watering can from Kate's ABCs and made it into a little gift box.  I used the Gypsy to weld the word Mom into the can.

There are metal wires attached on the inside layer to give the flowers the support they needed to stand.

I cut a second watering can and added a box similar to my Thanks a Melon project.  My Little E's picked out flower seed packets to fill the watering can. 

Here is the close up of the stamp and the details of the watering can.  The stamp is from MCS Sweet Sentiments Set #1.  Click (Here) to shop all of the My Craft Spot Clear Stamps.  The ribbon is Vintage Style Hand Dyed Crinkle Ribbon and is also from MCS.  There are so many gorgeous colors to choose from and you can click (Here) to see them all!
