Make it Monday (on a Thursday)

I am not admitting how much time I spent on this card.  I made every mistake possible:  I messed up on stamping the background, embossing powder went astray and got in the way of the sentiment, the lines were blotchy at the corners, I won't bore you with the rest.  I do hope you like the card.  And I do love  frames on a card.

Happy Easter

My attempt at a cheerful Easter card.  The color is a little washed out, it was so bright and sunny.  Tomorrow I am cooking Easter dinner, salmon and chicken...Yum!
Thanks for looking and hope everyone has a great holiday weekend.

Bright Blooms

Here is a card I made in response to Clean and Simple's FTL 132 before I had my blog up and running.  This is a quick post as my daughter just called me-- first day of a new job at a sandwich  place and she is lonely as it is very quiet-- so thought I'd surprise her by popping in with my Mom and ordering up!
Enjoy your day and thanks for looking
