Spring Break Time

My kids are on Spring Break, It’s Holy Week, and I have been crazy busy. It’s all good. The last night of Sale-A-Bration was crazy. I had to get so many last minute orders punched in before 12:45AM Central time on April 1st that I feel I have not fully recovered. Grateful for those orders But I am tired this week and I have been sleeping in a bit longer than usual. How much more? Oh, probably an extra hour and 20 minutes. My Jawbone App is even saying I am a stellar sleeper. What! I normally get around 5 Hours a night because I’m a Night Owl and usually stay up after midnight. However, I don’t have to take the girls to school and well, I am lounging and staying in bed until around 7:45 every day. Man this is so bad. Lazy I Am. But I’m just tired right now. Hopefully not coming down with a Spring Flu. Nah!

This years Spring Break, No Vacation, No Awesome Place, No Beautiful Views, we didn’t go anywhere fun. It’s a Staycation! I’ve just been keeping the kids entertained by going to craft stores, unusual stores, and trying out different foods at restaurants. Just a couple of Unbelievable picky eaters to tend with!

For “Cheap Entertainment”-parking farther away in parking lots and making the kids walk-“ALL THE WAY” to the store, shop, and then “ALL THE WAY” back to the car. Eh, we all need a bit of exercise. Oh sure- technology is part of my kids interaction in the day but I try to do what I can to get them motivated. I finally kicked them out of my office and I have my Computer again. Anyone else with Kids wanting to be glued to the TV and the couch this week? Yes, I am aware my kids will read this someday and will roll their eyeballs at me. Smiling!

Ok, Time for some business-It’s time to post.

How about a couple of Easter Cards for you. A cased card that I had my Bible Card Club at my Church make for the Shut-ins.



The main colors are Gold, Soft Suede, and Crumb Cake. The subtle coloring is with Blender pens using Wild Wasabi, Pink Pirouette, and Chocolate Chip.



How about a fun pastel egg card.


Putting it together:

You will need the Oval framelits and White Card Stock.


Using one of my Favs-Work of Art.

Yellow-Swoosh  Swoosh-2Swoosh-3

You know how you buy a stamp set for certain pieces in it, use those and then put it away? I forgot that this set (And Many More) had a Fun Easter Greeting in it. It’s really a great stamp set and I will have to start using it more in my cards.


Now stamp the greeting in Black Ink.


Place over the pastel swooshes and you have a really fun Easter egg card.


Of course it just looks good with candy:Hippity-Hoppity

Here is what you will need:

Our Oval Framelits are not available at this time, so I hope you have them already. Sorry that our backorders, etc are affecting your ordering at this time. Don’t worry, everything should be back to normal soon.

Time for some:
Thanks for all of your orders during SALE-A-BRATION this year. It was a very successful couple of months for me and I truly Appreciate it.
I’m still trying to earn a Trip for my Family, so stay tuned for my seemingly elusive journey to earn one.
ENJOY! and Happy Easter to you and your loved ones.
