Happy Spring Banner

I made this banner/garland as part of an Easter package to our youngest son for our grand son.  Our daughter in law texted me and then called me to thank me for making this!  She is just SOOO sweet!  She offered to BUY, yes, BUY any others I make but I did tell her family gets them free when I make goodies.  But I just realized I never shared this with you!

I got most of the pieces from the recent "Easter Party in a Box" but changed things up a bit.  I added the pattern paper one the bunny pieces and added coordinating bunny tails.  Then what was to be the bunny tails (the white flowers on the crepe paper tassels) I put on the tassels.  The bunny die is now retired (as of Saturday) but I will have to order the Journey Fringe steel rule die. I used assorted card stocks and coordinating print paper from old retired 6"x 6" paper packs. But the tassel products are current.  The Media Flowers and Spring Crepes (crepe paper) are great and the Tangerine Fusion ribbon is so bright! And I just LOVE our Banner Parade die set and Ovals dies that did much of the banner!

This was a relatively easy project though it took me a couple hours.  She wants more banners for other holidays so I will be playing with assorted products as I come up with some ideas!

Did you have a good Easter?  Our church had a Sunrise service and, as we were singing worship songs, I seen some red in the sky above.  I turned around and had to take this photo.  WOW! After church we went to Tucson to the hospital where a friend of ours will be for a while.  She had a stroke last Monday.  Her balance is wacky and she lost some mobility/feeling on her right side. She will be in rehab for a while so please say a prayer for Angie.
