Crafters of Faith End of the Month Challenge

The end of May has so quickly arrived and Patti is our hostess this month for our Faith Blog group's challenge for May. . She reminded us of the wonderful custom of delivering May baskets to our friends or neighbors. I've made mine for a friend who had surgery this week. I stamped the paper for the basket with a basket weave background stamp that I just love from Flourishes. I loved the quote from Texas' fabulous Lady Bird Johnson, and I diecut some flowers and leaves to arrange in my basket. That was the REAL challenge, trying to arrange my one dimensional flowers to look more 3-D.

Love your basket! It looks so real with the basket weave pattern on it. I don't stamp well but I can do flowers. I have some flower tutorials on my blog if you ever want to check them out.
