I couldn't pass it by. We are right at the begining of 2 dance comps and I am having a bit of a hard week...I crashed my car ( yes everyone is ok) last Sunday ...we had to take our doggy to the emergency clinic 2 nights ago cause she was choking on something.... Oh ya we are waiting for the 3rd thing. Yikes not just scary and bad things but just darn expensive on top of it!!! So Now you understand the need for monster paper...I needed therapy!

in cages

I am glad these little birdies are not cooped up in a cage.....I have no idea what this paper is called... Kathy bought it... but I want it. I really, really want it and I would keep it in my stash forever!! I have to say I am really glad the wind around here has died down and everything has stopped flying around my yard. I got out in the garden yesterday..I got some crocus for my Easter arrangements and I popped them into the garden ...I am hopping I will see some next year..It is one of those things I never think about till it is too late! Not this time...I am way ahead of the game!! Thanks for looking!

so soft...

These are totally my colors...I just love the earth tones... My girls used to ask me about my fave colors and I would say brown... that wasn't even a "color" to them...they would say I have to pick a real color! For some reason the colors in this card make me feel warm and cozy. Thanks for stopping by have a great day!

three peas in a pod

Well three pods I guess...boy, girl and unknown!!! I have no idea where this stamp came from but I am glad Michelle brought it back to the mix! I am so happy that we had a beautiful day yesterday for the easter hunt and dinner was supper yummy! The best part is my house is still sparkling clean!! My girls are off school for the month and we have the next week before their dance competitions start so we are on relax and hang out mode! Michelle has a sick little boy who I guess has been holding on to this virus for over a month now...he just can't shake it! Poor little guy is on round 2 of some super medicine...Hope it works quick I know Michelle needs it to be over!! Kathy just got back from California early last week and some time soon we have to clean up her craft closet...we have put it off for a few weeks now!!! I don't think she will let us get away with it for much longer!!! Now you are all up to date!! Thanks for looking!

So... I have a couple of things to share first the beautiful baskets I made!!! I used outdoor perennials because I don't do so well with real plants in my outside they will go! I also put chives in the egg shells but sadly they have not made it... I wanted to show you the cute easter Bunny tags that I made for our hunt...I just punched out the oval and Kathy have a wack of small embossing folders ..I just daubed them with springy colors and Voila!
