Getting Away!

I'm heading to the bags are packed, and I'm ready to go. Just waiting on my ride.

Every year I get together with some of my closest friends for a retreat and we head to the mountains for some much needed time away. This year we are headed to Estes Park for a few days. We plan on relaxing in the hot tub, doing a little shopping, dinning out and listening to author, Patricia Sprinkle speak. This years retreat is "Dreams for Ourselves & the Kingdom".

I won't be doing any posting while I'm gone, leaving the laptop at home...gasp!!!

Say a little prayer for the hubby or maybe that should be for me...hubby has the house and three kids to tend to while I'm away. Good luck honey!!!

See you when I get back!!!

Easter Moments

Just a quick share of some of our kids Easter moments.

After Church our kids headed outside for an Easter egg hunt. Here a few photo's of all 3 kiddos gathering their eggs.

Easter wouldn't be the same if we didn't carry on the tradition of dying Easter Eggs.

Wishing each and everyone of you Easter blessings!

Here are few cards and goodies I recently made. I know it's been awhile, can you just say crazy!!! Yes, life has been super busy for our family! I'll be posting about all the craziness in my next few blogs. But for now, I wanted to share these adorable images I colored for Easter before it slips away!

Sisterhood Birthday Card

I created this super cute birthday card for a very good friend of mine who just turned "40".
I just love how it turned out!

The image I used is called "Sisterhood" by Penny Black. It's one of my favorite stamps!

I decided to paper piece some of the image. I can't tell you what paper collection I used, sorry. All the papers I used came from scraps I had left over from when I posted a tutorial on "How to Paper Piece Digi Images". Of course I used my flesh colored Copics, E00, & E000, along with a few Bic Mark it's. I cut out a few frames using my Accent Essentials Cricut Cartridge, and layered them together, edged with walnut stain ink. I also added a white border punch by Martha Stewart "Daisy Fan" to the right side of my frames along with a few Prima flowers centered with a pearl brad and an Iamroses skeleton green leaf. I finished my card off with a soft green satin ribbon on the spine side of the card.

~Thanks for Stopping by! Have a Happy Scrappy Day~
