My dearest friend, Debbie, is so sweet to ask us to dinner to celebrate our anniversary together. Unfortunately, she injured her shoulder and the dinner was postponed until next weekend. What a trooper!
(I guess this should be a get well card and I may still do that), but this is the one I made to thank her for being such a good friend. It is mostly Stampin' Up products, N. of Navy, Creamy Caramel, Very Vanilla cardstock. The ribbon is retired 7/8 inch navy and creamy caramel grosgrain. The punched edge is a new Martha Stewart punch that IMHA is just great!
I was hoping the stamped image would turn out a little darker for the camera, but I wanted it to be soft. It was coloured with copic markers and brightened with a little Stickles.

I hope to be putting up some pictures soon of what I have been up to over the months, my travels and, of course, my beautiful granddaughter. Off to work now.

The casino wasn't bad either, but I wish it was non-smoking. It did, however, help to improve my shopping trip significantly! Before I left, I did a couple of other Easter cards which I will post below. The first is a quicky little number coloured with Copics a splash of Spica pen for glitter. The paper is all SU including the green dotted from a retired paper pad.
The second one is a religious Easter card. It can be really hard to find a nice religious image these days but this one struck a cord. Simple and meaningful.
BG Infused. It seems to enhance the simple rugged cross and spare Easter lilies. It seems to reflect the meaning of the passion and the simplicity of the message of Christ's Resurrection. The rest of the paper is SU certainly celery and purely pomegranate. The ribbon is the now retired burgundy satin ribbon with some raspberry dewdrops on the image. The image is also coloured with copics and with a little Stickles .

Numero Uno: I like to travel to places and spend more time watching people than visiting the sites.
Number Zwei: I have been married to the same guy for.... Oh My Gosh! ....almost 31 years! And dated for 8 years before that. You'd think I might not be surprised by him after all that time, but it ain't so.
Number TREE: Ok that is not really another language but I have the silliest granddaughter and I just like to revert.
Number Four: I LIKE to add up columns of numbers. Good thing, as that is what I do all day.
Number Five: I like to walk in the rain without an umbrella. Living on the West Coast feeds this addiction. I told you I have vices.
Number Zex; German 6 but I can't spell it, I just like to say it! That's weird.
Number 7: I have a silly sense of humour that really isn't noticeable to strangers.
I really have no one to tag as everyone has been tagged before, but I just wanted to participate. I am so new to SCS and blogging. I did want to draw your attention to my friend and digiscrapper Joan.
If you go to her blog you will find a link to her gallery at Digishoptalk. She is terrific!

The cardstock is bazzill and the Dp is Basic Grey 2 Scoops. I had fun with the hand cut flowers and little dohickies saved from some great birthday cards. Recycle, recycle, recycle! Especially when it is for scrapbooking!. Hope you enjoy it.

I would like to share with you a card I created for my sister and her husband -- there son and his wife had a new baby boy this morning. So they are grandparents to new little Eric Christopher!!
The base is SU cameo coral and sentiment and the DP is Basic Grey 2 Scoops (love it!). I used a Lizzie Anne flower stamp Sunflower and coloured it with Copic markers (Y21, R32 and RV14). I added that cute Amer. Crafts ribbon.
