Next there are 2 more lovely Easter cards from some sweet blog friends, that I wanted to share for all of you to enjoy right along with DH & me.
|Brenda L's card|
Now here's the card that Mr. DH got for the holiday.
- Our Daily Bread Designs image, die cut with a new S/Binder Decorative Labels 34 (found this on sale at Molly's Square). The die cut nicely, considering the edge trimming details.
Papers were from a sale pack of K&Co and Paper Studio Sunbeam Meadow.
- Card base was trimmed with a die from the set of A2 Scalloped Borders One.
- glitter twig is a snippet discovered when I was sorting scrap paper yesterday afternoon. Tucked in quite nicely, didn't it?
Costco has some colored plastic bins (5 for $19.99) which I purchased, thinking to sort scrap(snippet)
with each color in its own plastic container. Currently I have file folders that started with each color in that folder, in a larger clear bin. Well, one gets in a hurry, and things get jumbled ...or perhaps it doesn't at _your house_! The bins have sat on the floor for weeks, and yesterday, while it was drizzly rain, Mr. was napping, I not in the mood to do much of anything...traipsed downstairs to watch some recorded stuff and sort papers. I took all the bins where I've stashed snippets and played ring toss. I had the bins open, spread in a semi circle in front of my chair, with a jumbled bin on my lap. Each paper scrap got tossed into the appropriately colored bin. At least I can hope that the pinky-red bin only has that color. These are now stacked in a Ikea fabric cube - which did not fit the Recollection cube holder that I recently purchased at 60% off. Oh well, I've plenty of other things that will. So even though only I can tell I've done diddly in that room, I did make a start at straightening out. More this afternoon - but first I am going to enjoy the treat of visiting some blogs. Oh yes, putting on the clean bed linens too.
Before I leave here's the card DH had for me....I liked it a lot.
Will share one more personal tidbit before signing off this afternoon. You all know that _My_ name is Mary. His name is Joe.* Long years ago, he had an appointment with a neurologist. This young fella told us that he just had read the Christmas story to his young children the night prior to our appointment. When we introduced ourselves his reply was "Now I can tell my kids, today I met the _other_ Mary & Joseph!" A bit corny, yes - but it often helps people remember our names! LOL.
Happy Easter, thank you to all my wonderful blog friends, and have a wonderful afternoon. Hugs.
*Our only child is Dana.
