Hello Friend

So far, April has been a busy month for me. A son who turned 18, a niece who turned 22 and close friends who also keep having birthdays. Not that I mind - any excuse to raise a glass and make a card is okay with me.
Note: Be careful of wine drinking and card making at same time.
Plus, I have been planning classes for this coming term. I did say 'planning' but not actually 'making'. Must get onto that!!! I know what will happen - I will have the perfect card planned in my head, sketched out on my notebook and when it finally comes time to put it together - Euck! So then back to the drawing board. Does that happen to anyone else?
I made this simple card a few weeks ago now (love doing that poking holes technique thingy) and thought that I would enter it into a few Easter challenges.

  1. That totally happens to me- get half way through the card and step back and think- what happened?!?- back to the drawing board I go! This card is so cute though- I'm loving the yellow, so springy and I'm totally going to have to try the, what did you call it?, paper holes technique thingy! I love those technical :) Thanks for sharing another adorable card!
