Spring Wreaths

Today is the first day in a week or so that I've felt like crafting! I finally started taking allergy shots about a month ago, but won't expect results for awhile yet. I had a sinus infection that I pretended didn't exist over Easter Break and it turned into pink eye (I didn't know that could happen!) in both eyes. So, after a few days off work and not being able to do anything (including scratch my eyes out, which is what I wanted most!) I think I'm finally on the mend. 

One of my mom's best friends celebrated her 60th birthday yesterday so I made a burlap wreath for her. I started making wreaths right before Christmas and have been exploring with various fabrics, ribbons, and types of wreaths. This one has a wire frame and some pretty forsythia flowers. It's hard to see the details, but there is a beautiful sheer yellow ribbon, and a tiny thread of green to tie in the branches. I hope she loves it!


Here is a card I made recently for my Pastor and his wife. I didn't realize the photo was a little blurry, but the stamp (from Our Daily Bread Designs) says "Mightier than the thunder of the great waters, mightier than the breakers of the sea-- the Lord on high is mighty." -Psalm 93:4. I love the background paper, its also from ODBD and fits along perfectly with this stamp set.
