Easter Card

I was recently invited to a card party with some friends. Every now and then we get together to make cards. Since Easter is coming I thought I would make an Easter card. And even though I think bunnies are the sweetest, Easter is all about my risen Savior - Jesus Christ. So my card is one that I could share my Easter Blessings...
Here is the front...

I printed the image off the net and did alot of layering. I also used my cricut to cut out the swirly shape. The pic doesn't do it justice, the blue is actually purple. The front reads "Let the whole Earth be filled with His glory"
Here's the inside...

It reads.."May the glory of our risen Lord renew  your hopes, faith and joy!"
May you all have a Blessed Easter and know that Jesus really is the reason for the season!

It has been sooo warm around here latelty that SPRING is definitely in the air. So I just had to put out some decorations for Easter, it is early this year April 8th.

This was my faux fireplace before.....


And this is what it looks like now.....

And the mantle before ... which isn't really too bad.....

And after, with a couple of bunnies...


And here's my hutch before.... filled with my collection of pitchers.....

And with my bunny collection.....

And this is what I put on my dining room table...
 Winter is sure feeling in the past , inside and out. Now I just hope the weather doesn't drop a ton of freezing snow on us!

Crochet flowers & coasters

After I made those cute little headbands out of fabric, I thought I would also use up some of my yarn scraps. I've been seeing sweet flowers on different blogs made out of crochet so I thought I'd give it a try. I know how to crochet but I never made flowers before. What do you think?

I'm going to be attaching them to pins, and headbands and clips. They were so easy to make it got me in the mood to crochet again. I went around looking for some books for inspiration and I found these little booklets at the thrift store 5 /$1.00 ( what a deal! I love the thrift store!)

Inside one was a pattern for coasters which I thought would make a good gift for a friend that has a birthday coming up. I never worked with such a small hook and thread before but it was easier than I thought.
      I made a set of 4 and purcheased this cut glass dish to put them in.
                                            They fit perfectly!
                                        
                         Some ribbon and a tag and it's all ready to give!

Wall Words.....
A while back I had put some pictures up on the wall. It was really easy - I simply found frames at the thrift store, painted them black, and added black and white pictures of my kids and the dog. I love the way the black and white softens the image. Well, I had treated myself to a cricuit and I wanted to add some wall words. It was soooooo easy and I love the way it turned out. I used  "wall decor and more" except I didn't like the f in family so I simply cut out a more decorative one. The pics hang in the basement where the walls are brick so I simply cut them out of paper and taped them up. What do you think?.....




I think I might add Faith and Friends before and after.
