Happy Easter Everybunny

Happy Easter, everyone! This will be a short post because we have to go to my mom's for a late lunch today. It rained all night. The lightning and thunder fascinated my daughter that she kept on looking out the window. I always sleep better when it's raining that's why I sort of had a slow start to my Sunday.

I used the Everybunny stamp set (W 122705 C 122707). Aren't they the cutest? I really love this set and I have used them the past couple of years. The images are perfect for coloring with markers, aqua painters or blender pens. I hope it does not get included in the retired list. Well, that is all for now. Have a wonderful Easter Sunday, folks! Thank you for stopping by.

Easter Blessings

I apologize that I have been absent. I was busy with so many things, but what really kept me from posting was I felt so disconnected. I functioned on auto-pilot, went with the flow and motion of things...yet felt empty. Have you ever felt like that? Oh well, my son came home this weekend. Although, we did not see much of him because he attended a dance event in town, his presence was just what I needed. I waited up for him Friday night and as soon as he walked in and we hugged, I immediately felt this happiness enveloped me. Sharing a meal with both my kids, joking around and catching-up...priceless. Oh, the simple joys of motherhood.

Retired BNF Friday #21

Happy Friday, everyone! I have been busy organizing my paper scraps. If you're a paper crafter like me, I am sure you know what I mean when I say that my box of paper scraps have become almost unmanageable. I made it a goal to sort all the colors out, put them in individual folders with labels. Hopefully now I will use them...because I can see them. I love pretty papers and I just hate when they go to waste or left unused. So, I decided to make some Hershey Nugget goodies using scraps from last year's Sale-a-bration Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper to share with you today.

Card Recipe

Stamp Set(s): Tea Shoppe (W 125545 C 125547), Oval All

Ink: Classic Stampin' pads in Poppy Parade, Lucky Limeade, Calypso Coral and Basic Black

Well, that's it for now. Have a wonderful weekend, everyone and remember to change your clocks this Saturday night - Spring Forward!

Bloomin' Marvelous Easter

Easter cards already? Really! This year is going by too fast. We have been getting spring like weather here in Northern California. I turned off our heat two days ago. Aughhh, I am not looking forward to hot days. I am a sweater/scarf kind of girl.

I had a good few days, watching my salt intake and drinking lots of water. I am so thankful each morning when I wake-up pain free. I was busy yesterday preparing for my upcoming Spring/Easter class next week. I thought I'd best take advantage of the Bloomin' Marvelous stamp set from the Sale-a-Bration catalog, since this awesome promotion will end March 22, 2013.

I had so much fun creating this card. I am certain the gals will love all the projects they will put together in class next week. I am really enjoying all the Sale-a-Bration items in this year's catalog. There is still time to get a free item with your $50.00 order. Just go to My Online Store to shop.
