Framed Samplers

Hello everyone!   Are you ready for some Football?  Superbowl is tomorrow and I will probably be locked up in my craft room for the duration!  LOL  Yeah....I'm not so much into it and if the Bears or Packers aren't even playing I'm even less into it.
This past Christmas June (from my stamping group) gave all of us a framed Christmas Sampler.  It was so cute that we all decided to make inserts for the rest of the year.  Now I know Valentines day and St Patty's day are coming but we just didn't think we'd get those all done before Easter/Spring was upon us so we hopped (no pun intended) right over to the Easter/Spring one.  I got to choose the base colors and went with blue, pink, and green.  We then each made 5 squares of 2 different designs and then swapped so each of our frames had a little piece of art from our fellow crafter.  Each of us took it upon ourselves to make some extra so that we could put together a frame to donate to "Relay for Life" as a raffle.  My daughter-in-law helps run the event fundraising through her work.  Can't wait til she sees the finished project.  Here's what we produced.

The top one in the white frame is our donation.  One of the ladies couldn't stand the fact that we were skipping over St. Patty's day so she supplied us with all the pieces we needed to put together a St Patty's Day sampler too.  So we did!

Now we have to all flip out ours Easter/Spring and slip St Patty's in our frames!  LOL  Next up will be a Patriotic one to carry us from May to September.  We'll start that one in April.  I think a real cute idea would be 1 with all holidays in 1 frame.  Each square a different representation.  Hmmmmm.....maybe I'll just work on one of those for me! heehee.

Well I have to go start planning my tomorrow!
