Spring Wreath

 I haven't used my Gina K wreath builder stencil for making wreaths in a long time so I just had to get it out and play with it. I used stamps from a few different companies.

  • Gina K - Wreath builder template 3 3/4 inches
  • Gemini - leaves stamp
  • Inkadinkado - Greetings stamp set for flowers and sentiment
  • Teresa Collins - He said she said paper
  • Lawn Fawn- Fancy scalloped  Rectangle die
  • Memory Box - Stitched Circle layers
  • Kasiercraft - pearls

Update:  Doctor said that my foot looks good, no sign of infection and very low swelling.  The incision was a bit bigger than I thought it would be, I have to take it very easy for the next two weeks until I go back to the doctor and see how it has healed.  I have a few more cards I had made up before my surgery, thank goodness, because I have to keep my foot up above my heart as much as possible.  

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

Glad your surgery went well -- hope you recover quickly!

Wreaths are always such happy things; especially where flowers skip around and around. Such a pretty card. Do stay well; put your foot up and take, dear Connie.

This is really sweet Connie! I haven't pulled mine out in quite a while either. Thanks for inspiring me to do so. So glad to hear that you're on the healing end of things.

Such a pretty and happy card, Connie! Good report on your foot surgery. It would be hard to lay around with your foot above your heart, I would think. I have a hard time being idle during the day. Good luck with that and do take care! Happy birthday over the weekend!
