Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone. This weekend has been jam-packed with so much family fun! So much so, I had to share a funny story and some pictures! I woke up this morning (it was only 7:30-- which is sleeping in for me), and I walked out in to our living room and my daughter is fully dressed, jeans, shirt, shoes and all. I said, "Ellie, what are you doing?" She tells me with the most serious of voices, "I'm all ready for the Easter Egg hunt." Bless her heart -- it wasn't until 10 AM! Since we have some green space in our neighborhood, we have a egg hunt in some of the park areas.

Look at all those eggs just waiting to be picked up! My son told me that there were 2,000 eggs!

And the kiddos waiting.... this was just a handful. There had to be at least 50 kids.
Here's Ellie going for it! And, my 13 year old, Cal, proving you are never too old! ;-)
And, here's Ellie - post face painting....

Later in the day, we colored eggs and I have to tell you that this year's offerings for Easter egg coloring was hysterical. Who knew you could give your egg a "fro!" Check it out! I cracked up!

And, before I bid you ado, here's a card I made this weekend for a friend of mine that we go to church with. I just love this Easter lily and the sentiments that are in this Lily of Hope set from Flourishes -- just beautiful sentiments that are perfect for this time of year. This card is really an easy card. I used my Labels 8 Nestabilities die (after embossing, I used a sanding block to distress the edge a bit), a petite oval die (and while the die was still on, I used my paper piercing tool to add a pierced frame). The flower was colored with the B000 Copic marker plus the Sunflower and Spring Greens Copic Collections grouped by Flourishes. Afterward, I added some Stickles glitter glue to the stamens in the flower. Add a fun flocked ribbon, some crocheted lace and a pearl and voila!
Here's a close up!
And that, my friends, is it! I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday and a blessed Easter. I'm making a ham with all the fixings and I can almost smell it just thinking about it! YUM!
I'll see you back here soon!
