Vintage Verses and thank yous

I LOVE the new stamp set, Vintage Verses, and especially the little stamp that says "Just Because" ... sometimes that's exactly what we need to say, when you give a little gift because someone has helped you out...

So I stamped it onto a little blackboard that I had bought years before in Hobart when on holiday - the Whisper White Craft ink from Stampin' Up! stamps beautifully onto the blackboard... 

 

 I sponged the edges too and then added a ribbon and card and popped it into a little plant pot with Rosemary in.  Rosemary is wonderful - I love the smell.  Fragrant plants are my favourite.

Here's the finished gift.


If you are wondering about the gorgeous purple pot, it is from Bunnings, and I found it when I was on a 'date' with my husband.  We have been taking each other on little 'dates' and taking turns on where to go and what to do.  On this day it was my husband's turn to choose and he took me to a delicious breakfast and then to Bunnings - which of course is where every man likes to wander around, and many, many women too - me included.  I was very excited to find little purple pots in the plant department at Bunnings on my date!

I'd love to hear if other stampers go on dates with their husbands!

Ooh, thanks for sharing HOW you created that cute plant 'spike', Jenny!

Yes, I go on dates with my husband ~ think Bunnings is a fabulous destination and even more appealing since you mentioned finding such gorgeous treasures. :)
