Month of Softies Submission - May Flowers

I tried and tried people to do a nice sweet flower. Really. I did! But, to be me is to be a bit twisted. So, my submission to May's Month of Softies May Flowers theme is something more, well, carnivorous....

A Venus Flytrap!

Oh, my gawd! I was thinking about doing something less than sweet for Month of Softies, but anything I could come up with would be sugar coated next to that. You are truly a madwoman. LOL

Oh wow! I absolutely love this guy! The removeable eyeball rocks! You have done a great job with him...slightly twisted for a flower theme, but nonetheless he is perfect!

i love your creations. that venus fly trap is awesome. i wish i had the pattern as my doctor(who is a strange man for sure,) has a vw bug with the flower vase, and has been looking for one for a long time(fake one LOL) and that would make a perfect christmas present to him as while he is odd, he is also a awesome doctor LOL you going to sell the pattern? if so please let me know. thanks so much
