Busy, Happy and Missing Everyone!

It's been a really busy week for me, working lots of hours and getting my house not only cleaned, but organized. It's very cleansing going through closets and drawers and getting rid of all those silly things we keep for some reason, over the years. Whenever I do this, I always vow to be better at throwing or giving things away as I go. Hope I can stick to that this time!

So, I work today from 12:30 to 8:00pm, then it's home to set up tables and prepare for my WHOLE family coming for Easter! Can't wait to see everyone! The weather has been so cold and rainy all week, but it sounds like we're going to luck out tomorrow. . . .sunny and close to 60. Maybe spring is finally deciding to come around. I certainly hope so!

I stayed up quite late last night so I could make a little card. With my busier than usual week, I've only found time to get creative here and there. Here's my card, made with some fave Hero Arts stamps and colors that I love! I chose the sentiment because you all make me smile! :)



I've also had no time to comment on Flickr or blogs and it feels so strange not to do that! I want all of you to know that I've still been checking in and looking at the fabulous cards you've been making. I will get back to a more normal (commenting) schedule soon!

I hope you all have a very Happy and Blessed Easter! Sending hugs. . . :)

Lovely glittery card Barb, hope all went well with your family and you enjoyed the day.
I have just had a day with my family, small as it is, but I still feel Easter is a special time when you can cherish these moments with them.
