~Thank You Flowers~

I wanted to give flowers to a friend, to thank her for 
making us dinner.
 I just had knee surgery for a torn meniscus,
 so I haven't been able to do too much. 
In our garden, the sweet peas are blooming everywhere, 
so I thought they would be a nice gift.
I recycled a can and glued some burlap ribbon to it.
I used my sweet pea stamp on some linen,
for the ribbon.
I love fresh cut sweet peas. 
They make the house smell so good.
I also picked some alstroemeria. 
Our garden has so many flowers that are blooming now.
The weather in San Diego was a perfect 70 degrees today.
I made a thank you card too!
A pretty card to go with the
~Sweet Peas~


  1. So beautiful!! Love your "sweet pea" ribbon and card that you made. Lynda

  2. Love this, JOdy!
    Hope you heal up!

  3. Heal well..
    I just love sweet peas..
    You can pierce holes on the sides of the slip a ribbon through and hang from a doorknob..
    When I worked..for certain clients..I would hang one filled with flowers on their front door for moving in day.
    One of my pleasures..
    Love the stamp...may I ask where you found it?

  4. Hope your knee mends quickly. I had a torn meniscus repaired in 2009. Love the personalized touch to your gorgeous bouquet, Jody. Makes it more meaningful and heartfelt. xo
