Happy Easter!

Hi there!

Can you belive that Easter is this week?!  The time
just flies by too fast for me!  

We were away this past weekend for a bowling tournament. 
 I came close to my avgerage for the most part on my games.
I struggled on Saturday a lot!  But, Sunday we went
to a different alley, and I had better success!  My
partner, Nancy, made her average all her games on
Sunday...yeah Nancy!  Cheryl, who was on our team for Saturday, got 200 games both on Saturday and Sunday...yeah Cheryl!  Anyways, my high game was on Sunday with a 194.  I needed only six more pins for a 200 game to receive a pin.  But that's OK, I have gotten them before on tournaments.  Better luck next year!:-) 

OK..onto my card here.  It's pretty self-explanatory.  I embossed
the card base.  The focal point is a lovely Easter egg from Jolee's Boutique.  I used oval dies from Spellbinder's.  I distressed
the doily with tea dye ink.  Ribbon and tulle were added to
the pretty felt flower from K&Company. 

We will be eating out this Easter.  That is what we usually do
for this holiday, so no one has to cook.:-)  We will be
having ham/chicken dinner family style...mmm!  Whatever
you do I wish for you and family a blessed Easter!  Take
care and thanks so much for dropping by today, hugs!!:-))
