Easter Blessings



We are not terribly religious even though my husband was raised Catholic. We didn't go to church today. I did however think about the real meaning behind Easter. Then made Easter dinner for my mom, dad, and my brother. My aunt was going to join us but called this morning to say she wasn't feeling that great so she declined at the last minute.

I finished home-made scalloped potatoes (and one pan was made super spicy with cayenne pepper for my hubby who likes it HOT!), a fresh strawberry pie (lots of whipping cream ready for this when it's time to serve), a cute loaf of bread in the shape of a bunny (made by a la Francaise bakeries- delicious!), and some asparagus and a big old honey baked ham...yummy!

It sounds like a lot but it was easy - so I had time to make a card....it had to photographed outside because it's such a gray day...well outside on the covered deck, the rain still got to my card :( so there are some 'blops' of swollen paper showing...don't look closely. I DO want you to notice the textured blue paper on the right side though - it's Core d'inations...you sand the blue paper and lighter core inside shows through where the linen texture is...I love it!!
The image is from A-Muse (isn't that little weiner doggie and bunny a cute one!?) the background flower stamp is from the Papertrey Anniversary set that I had to BUY off someone for $30 - yikes...not sure if that was worth it, but I intend to use it a lot, so I guess it's a good deal. Oh, notice those tiny blingies around the scalloped edge? They are the NEW Memory Box blings...150 of them come in a package! Sweet deal, especially since I got them at a discount yesterday during Monkey Love's Birthday Celebration! Monkey Love is a local rubber stamp store that I've been shopping at for at least 10 years now...wow...they're still just as great as ever and the owner Sandy carries a great selection of stamps...check them out on Lower Queen Anne if you're ever in the area!

Have a wonderful day everyone - even if it's pouring outside your windows like it is here in Seattle...blech....
