April showers bring May flowers

Image may contain: possible text that says 'The Joy Of Sets MAY 2020 Floral Blog Hop'Making something new and pretty for your front door lifts the spirits. I made this wreath out of a swimming noodle. I cut it down held it together with duct tape and hot glue then covered it with some ribbon I found in my stash 😏 we all have one of those right?  The plaque was found on discount at a store sometime awhle ago.
I think Gerber daisies are so pretty and they are so colorful,  that’s the flower I intended to make what do you think does it look like them? ?  There are a few white roses, pansy's, poppies and a couple little blue flowers thrown in to add some variety.  This is one of my favorite things to do with card stock (ONE of my favorite).  I have two sons that have gotten married, for each of the receptions I’ve made arrangements for the tables with flowers to match the colors that the girls chose for their weddings. It is a little time-consuming but it is something that is relaxing to me and that I love doing. This doesn't have to be expensive either, we washed out soup cans and covered them with small decorated paper bags (Stampin up sold some one year) tied ribbon around it to hold it on and put rocks in the bottom to help weight it down. (Pictures below...if your interested 😊)  What do you love to do with your craft supplies? I like to Stamp, don’t get me wrong, but with this blog hop being themed floral I decided this would be a great one to show you.

With all that's happening in this world it will be a good reminder to look for the little things that we are blessed with.  Looking for them and being grateful will help the spirits in this trying time and remember April showers bring May flowers!!  I'm looking ahead to sunnier day!!!
