Thank you!

First, I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter!!! 
I've been enjoying a day and a half of silence...John took the girls to Iowa and I am relaxing at home solo!  They'll be back uber early tomorrow so we can spend Easter together.  Sometimes moms just need a break (and wine, lol!)!  ;D

Here is my latest Tilda card. 


I kept it sweet and simple! 
Again, I hope you have a wonderful Easter!
Thank you so much for stopping by!

Make it Monday time!

It's Sunday night here...Monday in it must be time for a fabulous new OPEN PAPER challenge at Make it Monday!!!  Every week I am simply blown away by the talent of our team and participants! 
And this week we have a new sponsor!  Rick St. Dennis's Etsy store gave us a choice of images and it was rather difficult as they are fantastic! 

I chose Easter Turtle...because I'm obsessed with turtles!  ;D

I don't know where they're going but I doubt they get there anytime soon! 

And now for my POTW...from Suzilou, this gorgeous card:

Love her coloring!

Cupcake Time!

It's Palm Sunday...this time next week we'll be enjoying Easter service, followed by Easter lunch, followed by an Easter egg hunt!!!  It's one of my favorite times of the year...even if it does still feel like winter here in the Midwest!

Our challenge this week is spot on with an Easter theme!

And our sponsor is the fabulous DRS Designs.  I chose the adorable Big Bunny Face for my card.

Hippity hop!

I hope you get a chance to link up with us at Cupcake Inspirations this week! I can't wait to see your amazing Easter projects!
