Spring Break...and a Card

Well, it's April...and that means Spring Break at school this week.
So far, it's only Tuesday...but I have to say...it's been nice. :)

My eldest daughter is home and it's been nice to have her around...all three of us just hanging out. She's growing up way too quickly, and I feel like I don't spend much time with her, now that she's full time in 1st Grade. Taking our time with things, not having to rush about...it's been nice. I even have a few surprises planned for the week. :)

Today...we're going to the Railway Museum. I really don't know much about it, except that someone told me about it, and my youngest LOVES trains. :) We shall see. :)

I've been pretty busy during March, and April will be as well...
One thing I've been doing is making cards for my Etsy shop....
This one (and many others) have been added!  :)

This card uses an old favorite of mine...Almost Amethyst. A sweet, soft purple. I even bought a pkg. of the cardstock when it retired. :)

The beautiful roses outline you see is the Manhattan Flower embossing folder on vellum. :)  Made it with my Big Shot (yesss....I FINALLY have a Big Shot - oh boy has that been nice!)

Well, what do you think?

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a GREAT day! :)


  1. I love the card. What mom wouldn't!? :)

  2. I think it's absolutely beautiful, but just to let you know how un-crafty I really am...what the heck is a big shot?

    Enjoy your spring break with your girls! We are officially on Summer Vacation here in FL (year-round school...weird, huh?) & it has been a lot of fun so far!


Go ahead...make my day! :)
