Thank You!

Hi there!

I hope your Easter weekend was filled with good food and fun times!  We had an excellent ham/chicken dinner out as we usually do each year.  Some visiting here with my Mom.  We watched a movie and relaxed.  We talked on the phone with a couple relatives.  I even had today off of work due to the one doctor being on vacation this week.  But, I did have to go in to work for a meeting.  Just an hour meeting, so that wasn't too bad...hehehe.  Afterwards, I walked in my favorite walking area and enjoyed the spring weather! 

Anyways, I want to share a card with you today that I made this afternoon.  I need to get my stash filled up with sympathy and thank you cards.  So, I came up with this one today.  I recently purchased some lovely Close to My Heart paper.  It went perfectly with a butterfly I had in my stash.  It didn't take me very long to make this card.  Does it get easier as one gets more experienced?   Please say, "Oh, yes!"!:-)  Hehehe...well tomorrow is a work day, so it's time to get things ready!   Take care and have a great week!

  11. I don't know what to tell you, Maria, because it seems to take me FOREVER to make a card! LOL! LOVE this butterfly with your new paper! This is so PRETTY!
