Happy Easter!

Hi, Friends!

Sorry I haven't been here in ages...whew!  Time does fly even when you're not having fun....ha!  I've been under the weather with bronchitis.  It started as a sinus infection and got worse.  I started antibiotics and cough syrup on Monday.  Last night was the first night I got a decent night's sleep since a week ago.  I have to be much better for this weekend since my husband turns the big "60"!  We will meet up with my son and go out to eat and to a hockey game.  I'm looking forward to having some fun!:-)

Anyways, the above Easter card I made for my friend, Peggi.  She loves tulips so I thought I'd incorporate them on the card.  All stamps are from Paper Sweeties.  I love the bright striped panel behind the water colored scene.  Twine and dots to finish off the card.

Well, that's all for now.  More Paper Sweeties projects will start this weekend, so please stay tuned.  Thanks so much for taking a peek at my card!  And, take good care for a lot of flu/colds, etc. is going around!
