Newton's Nook Designs March Release - Day 3

Welcome to the third and final day of Newton's Nook Designs' March Release.  Today we are revealing 'Basket of Wishes' - a set perfect for so many occasions with its variety of images you can fill the pretty basket with.  

Don't you just love versatile sets like this?  I sure do!  For me, the gardening insert drew me in and I knew I wanted to use that image and make a seed packet using THIS easy tutorial from Dollar Store Crafts and some pretty kraft designer paper from Recollections' Garden Harvest collection (I know you can't tell from the photo, but the tomatoes and carrot in the DP are actually sparkly!):
(Please click on the photo for clearer resolution).  Can you tell I paper pieced the gardening gloves with a scrap of floral patterned paper that I used for the duckie's umbrella on Day 1?  (you know how gardening gloves always seem to have bright floral patterns on them, right?)  Every Day is Earth Day after all - reduce, reuse, recycle!!  I can't wait to plant that basil - did you know even after you pick basil it can live up to a month in a vase of water in your window sill and continue to make your house smell delicious?  And I LOVE cooking with fresh basil too.  What is your favorite thing to grow?  Are you more of a vegetable, herb or floral gardener?  Would love to hear in your comments!  Speaking of comments...

I love your gardening card - such a great idea to include a packet of seeds! I like to grow herbs and vegetables. We have just sown some Basil as I love to cook with it and it smells so good too.
