Happy Easter!

| 2

I know it’s not Easter yet, but I’m sending my wishes anyway. This weekend is always busy for us. Our church has a Good Friday service tomorrow during which I will be presenting a monologue. The character I get to play is Pilate’s wife. She is telling him about her dream. It’s a fascinating piece and emotionally demanding. Just as I like it! It’s been a busy couple weeks preparing. Saturday Chris, my hubby, and I will be looking for a new van…still. Sunday we’ll celebrate this special weekend with my family. It amazes me each and every year how wonderful our God is!

The other reason for this post is because I just have to share some photos I took last week before the snow hit. The signs of spring are showing everywhere around here. Our tulips are growing, tender crocuses are blooming, and a beautiful purple flower appeared in the garden beside our house. If you know what it is, please tell me! I’ve learned so much about photography since I started scrapbooking and I hope these photos show that.

This one is our daffodils just peeking out of the soil.

Our sweet crocuses now flattened by the late snow.

And the mystery flower. Can you help me identify it?

April’s Challenge is to go simple.

posted in: Cards | 4

Hello everyone! It’s time for April’s challenge.
This month I’d like you to go simple. You may only use one piece of patterned paper and one piece of cardstock on your card or layout base. Any other things you add must be stamped or embellishments.
Here’s an example I copied from Vicki Wizniuk:

All products CTMH unless otherwise noted: Chocolate cardstock, More To Adore Level 2, Thoughtful Seasons (sentiments), Playful Flourishes, Cupcake Sprinkles, Other: sparkles.

Happy Creating!

I’m not doing so great at this, am I?

I promised bi-weekly challenges. Well, I’ve failed at the bi-weekly part. Maybe because I’m not getting much of a response on them. I guess that happens when you’re just starting. I think I’m going to do challenges once a month, at the beginning of each month, to coincide with my CTMH newsletters. So, for my few followers you’ll have to wait until the beginning of April for my next challenge.

If you’re reading this, maybe you can share my blog with others and help me get the word out. I will be offering little prizes for my monthly challenges!

Having said all that, I will keep posting my artwork since I know everyone can use some more inspiration. So here is some recent work. Just click on the picture to see some more details.
