Spring was blooming at the nursing home!

Yesterday was my day to go to the nursing home to make crafts with the residents. My goup grew to 11 and they were all happy to see me return. Some were even inquiring ahead of time as to when I would be coming back! They are so cute to work with. Many are confused about what to do and some have trouble with their hands so they need lots of help, but they are so proud when they are finished!!  The flowers we made had a Rolo in the center. Each resident made 3 or 4 so they could keep one and pass the others out to visitors, roommates, or nurses/aides if they wanted.  Several were going to keep them all themselves :) but the funniest thing was when one of the ladies finished making hers, she promptly tore the center off to eat that Rolo!! It was so cute.  She could have cared less about her creation - I loved it!!

I had all the flowers stamped and everything punched this time, so all they had to do was assemble them.  This stamping would have been too difficult for them.  But in 2 weeks, we are going to make another card and they will get to stamp.

Stamp sets - Mixed Bunch
Cardstock - Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz
Ink - Bashful Blue, Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, Peach Parfait, Daffodil Delight.  (Any color will work!)
Accessories - Blossom Punch, Blossom Petals Builder Punch, Rolos, any adhesive to put them together.

These are fun to make - try them!!
