Gardener's Gift Packet

Hi All, I have a fun little garden gift card/packet to show you.
You all know I am an avid flower gardener (most of the
and I thought it would be fun to make a card that held a few seed packets
for a garden friend.

I started with 3 envelopes I found in my drawer and this is how I put them together
flap to the envelope in front of it as shown.
This made 3 little "pockets" to slide the seeds in.

Then I just decorated with my Crafty Secrets products

I added a few die cuts and snippets of things I had on hand.
I finished it by tying it shut with a piece of raffia.

Take a visit to the Crafty Secrets online store
we have an August linky challenge going on right now
let alone the inspiration the DT has to offer!!

I wanted to show you my monster big P-gee Hydrangea bush.
It is loaded with beautiful blooms this year and
in the next few weeks it will change from the white you see now
to a beautiful pink and sage green!

Then while I out in the morning snapping these pictures
I noticed the moon was still out in the west (sun was up in the east)
and got this picture of it...this is the actual picture of blue sky and moon,
pretty awesome if you ask me!!!

Thanks for visiting...make sure to stop back tomorrow
as I am guest designing for Crafty Boots!!

constantly amazed by your cards but now I'm equally impressed with your gardening. Love that hydrangea and thank you so much for identifying. I have the P-gee blue but not the white which has now been added to my list of must haves for next year. Thank you so much for sharing both areas of your creativity!

You are just way too clever and creative! Soooooo pretty and will make such a cute little gift! Your hydrangea is gorgeous! I love my white hydrangea, but it's still smallish. Not a Pee Gee and doesn't turn color. Your garden is just beautiful and I love seeing pictures of it. Great moon shot, too!
