Gosh, where did this week go? I mean, wasn't just yesterday Monday! It has been a whirlwind of activity here at our home with Easter egg hunts, girl scout award ceremonies.... you name it. And of course there were 3 parties to attend.. all of separate days, as well as teacher appreciation week..

This week has also been a week of fun surprises... I won some blog candy, got a card in the mail from and SCSer that I just adore, and recieved my DSS (Divine Secret Sister) reveal package in the mail.. loaded with tons of goodies!! Also Julia (Create with Me) tagged me yesterday, which was also the Ways to Use it Challenge.. and guess what we had to use... tags!! LOL, what a coincidence! So, go get your self a cup of coffee and sit back.. this will be a rather lengthy entry as I have several things to post!

This is for today's Ways to Use It Challenge. To the best of my ability, I tried to make a "Faith" card. I love her style and had fun trying to make a knock-off... I also love tags, and forget that I have this punch..

Additional Info
Stamps: fun & fast notes
Paper: whisper white, basic black, lovely lilac, dp by K&Company
Ink: jet black stazon
Accessories: SU! markers, ticket corner punch, brads, ribbon


This is for today's Limited Supply Challenge. The card on the left is a kickstand without sentiment.. the one on the right is a traditional with sentiment. I stuck to the rules:
Stamp: 1 stamp used (computer generated sentiment)
Cardstock: 1 piece of DP, 2 colors, 1 neutral
Tools: ticket corner punch.
My image is so big that I wanted that the be the main focal point. This can easily be switched up by running the dp through the cuttlebug for a different look... punching the sentiment out of the scallop punch -(which is on backorder *pout*).. you get the idea.Thanks for looking!

Additional Info
Stamps: gossip club by art impressions
Paper: whisper white, old olive, chocolate chip, dp by K&Company
Ink: jet black stazon
Accessories: SU! markers, ticket corner punch, brads, ribbon

This is the super, fantastic reveal package that I got in the mail today! WOW! THANK YOU TABITHA - YOU ARE THE BEST SISTER EVAH! I just can't believe all of the stuff.... I am sooo blessed!

The many Easter festivites were so fun, and I am so glad that I could make it to most of them, with the exception of Andrew's (I had a meeting).. the weather was exceptional, just a cool, brisk wind which is traditional for this time of year for us.
This is for Sarah and Allison's
teachers.... we appreciate all of the time and effort she puts into teaching her class. I made a very small card to match the target $1 spot mailbox, and filled it with some goodies..

Additional Info

Paper: whisper white, taken with teal, dp by provocraft super slab rob&bob studio

Accessories: SU! markers, friskars circle cutter, circle punch, ribbon, brad
