I just had to show off my the quilt my friend Peg helped me make. My kindergarten class is studying the letter "Qq" this week, so I had them make this neat tulip block. Peg came in to show me how to put them all together to look like a quilt. I just love it! I know the kids will love it also. Thanks again Pegster! You rock!

April Card Club (Church)...

I have not been to church cards since October of last year. So, I thought I best be high-tailing it over there and see what is happening. I'm really glad that I did. We made three cards and one was already made for us. Card club has not meet since December, due to bad weather. It was like a surprise to see what we would be making.

I really enjoyed all the cards. Have a great day.

Easter Hope

The great gift of Easter is hope -
Christian hope which makes us have
that confidence in God, in His ultimate triumph,
and in His goodness and love, which nothing can shake.
-Basil C. Hume

Wishing you a blessed and happy Easter, and praying that the victory of His empty tomb changes your life, as it has mine.

Easter Box...

I just love Reese's Peanut Butter cups. So, when the holidays roll around and they sell their product in cute little shapes I just have to buy them and of course eat them. However, I thought I best share, cause one only knows that I don't need to scarf the whole box of six down. So, I made up this little treat box slider. What a perfect way to send someone a little something and let them know that I'm thinking about them and wish them a Happy Easter. I used my new goodies I ordered from SU. Like the "Good Egg" Stamp set and then I used DSP from the Tea Party collection. If you would like to make one of your own or maybe a dozen or two, it is very simple.

Start with a piece of CS that measures: 6" x 4" Then score at 3/4" on the 4" side and 3/4", 2-3/4", 3-1/2", 5-1/2" on the 6" side. I glued the side the long side together, then I cut my slits to make the bottom. You should use the "Red" sticky tape to make it stay together, but I was out, so I just used snail adhesive. Easy Peasy and soooo cute!

I think this is my favorite Easter set right now. The little chick just makes me smile. Have a great weekend.

Easter Treats....

Wow! I have wonderful friends. Just look at the treats that I got to help celebrate Easter. I think back to the days that I hated chocolate. Hate chocolate? Really? I know! I use to tell people that it would give me a headache. I think I really thought it did, perhaps it might have. But, I really like it now. I mean really like it. In all shapes, flavors, and forms. So, when friends give me little treats containing chocolate, I get really HAPPY!

Wishing you all a happy and sweet day!
