I was pleasantly surprised a couple Saturdays ago with this beautiful gift sent to me by Verla Carpenter, a very talented demonstrator on my team. She sent BOTH me and my upline, Susan one of these detailed "flower pot" cards and this sack of "Idaho Potatoes."

The funny thing is she had called me a few days prior to that Saturday to let me know that my gift would be arriving soon and what it would be. I seriously was expecting REAL Idaho potatoes, but that wasn't the case. (Scroll down to see what was in my potato sack.)

This is the gorgeous card.

(The flowers are attached to a piece that slides in and out of the pot.)

This is the fantastic sack of "potatoes."

From what I could gather the bag was made from an 8-1/2" x 12" piece of card stock.

And look at the "stitching" across the top. So clever! Just like a sack of potatoes!!
