Lots of entries this go around.  So many wonderful cards.  There is still time to enter!

Sharron, glad to hear your daughter is doing well. 

Lisa, what a nice surprise.  Have fun with Class 1.

Welcome back from holidays Suzanne! We are heading off next week - can't wait!

Comment by Suzanne Dean on April 11, 2012 at 2:51pm

How is everyone doing?  We had an awesome beach vacation in SC and I'm refreshed and trying to do a million things! LOL..what else is new!

Looks like we have a ton of entries this time which makes me happy--so many beautiful projects to look at.  You have until Friday evening to add yours to the challenge!

Sharron---so good to hear from you, huggies to you! And sure hope your daughter mends quickly and does well, sciatic pain is nothing fun to deal with that's for sure!

Comment by Sharron Moerke aka Sharrahug on April 10, 2012 at 11:08pm

Hope everyone had a blessed & happy Easter!

My daughter had spinal fusion surgery a couple of weeks ago & is recooping nicely.  Taking longer than she would like but she's getting there.  We're just praying that the sciatic pain doesn't come back (this is her 2nd spinal fusion).

Looks like everyone has been busy, busy, busy creating.  Me......not so much but hope to get back into now.  I just got some cute cute cute Saturated Canary images & LOTV stamps so I'm good to go.

Huggies & Blessings ~

I am starting to get over my chocolate and wine hangover from this past lovely EAster weekend and will be heading into my craftroom to colour at my new adjustable drafting table hubby got me! I think I will be colouring some magnolias. What will you be colouring with today to play along with our current challenge? Just a few days left! Hope you all had a Happy Easter!
