hello...


Well, Hello & Happy Easter!


I've been really enjoying Teresa Collins' everyday moments collection...the papers are over the top gorgeous.  I'm not typically a blue girl...although I wear jeans everyday...I even stamped in Versa Magic Night Sky...I typically stamp in Memento Rich Cocoa or Tuxedo.

The flags and sentiment are Hero Arts/Studio Calico Hooray....the label is The Craft's Meow



I was inspired by the card sketch Paige posted over on the Cards Challenge blog:


Although it isn't necessarily noticeable, I did manage to incorporate a ton of stitching.

Yesterday I went into panic mode when I realized how much I needed to get done for this week....it's amazing how quickly time flies by.  I even kinda/sorta had the week off from work.  So, when I wasn't working during the day I was moving stuff around in the crafty hallway to prep for the carpeting.  I can happily say that the furniture has been all cleared out...MAJOR pain but I'm patting myself on the back for completing the task.  I will tackle the 2 bays of closets today.

I have a super fun announcement this week so watch for it:)
