MAKING EASTER AND SPRING BANNERS WITH SHARON/ BLUE MONDAY

Blue Monday

 

Well,  it has been a while, but I am happy to be back posting on Blue Monday with my friend Sally @smilingsally.blogspot.com.

Hurry over and check out the list for today.

Sharon and I are planning on making banners for Easter and Spring.  She is here, but sick.  I have mentioned several times that Sharon was diagnosed with cancer of the throat on Dec 28, and has begun her treatments of chemo and radiation. 

I will show you all the stuff we have gathered  to make our banners.

The 2 books of papers were on sale at Michael’s and JoAnn’s for 9.99 each.

The ribbon was on sale for 5 for $1.00.

The paper punches we had purchased a while ago and only bought a punch the makes 1/4 inch rectangle holes , we will run our ribbon thru.

Hopefully Sharon will start feeling better today and I will show our banners one day this week.

Happy Blue Monday….Sally I did have some blue in my pictures!

My twin brother is receiving from the chemo and radiation treatment that he's undergone for his esophageal cancer. What an ordeal that was! I hope that Sharon does well.

Happy Blue Monday!

Sorry to hear anyone has that terrible heath issue. The fabric you have selected will make some very pretty banners. Best wishes to your friend.
