Hi Lynn. I've got a busy weekend planned. Tomorrow I hope to work in the yard and clean out the back flower bed and get the new beds watered good. I'd really like to get Spring housecleaning started also.

Not sure yet what the family plans are for Sunday. We're supposed to have some rain in the afternoon. I sure hope it doesn't put a damper on the festivities.

Worked on coloring an image last night for a couple different challenges. Hope to finish that up tonight.

I do have a Baby Shower Invitation card featured on the Bowdabra blog today.

Baby Shower Invitation with Mini Bowdabra Bow | Bowdabra Blog

I need to post it on my own blog.

No special plans here I'm afraid.
My son and his wife and baby will be here tomorrow and Saturday and then leave Sunday morning to go back to Dallas - no the tornadoes missed them thank goodness!!! Anyway, we'll have the BBQ tomorrow evening and then just whatever on Saturday. It'll be nice to see them and the little one.

Maggie, I'd like a little of that rain here - we're just HOT! It's already 95 here today! I cleaned out a storage shed all morning and probably dropped 10 pounds from all the sweat! Hard labor is probably good for me though! LOL!

No special plans here this weekend. Two of our kids will be working and the third one will be at his girlfriend's family. We will have Easter dinner with some good friends at their place, but otherwise all is quiet. It will only be in the 50's on Sunday, otherwise 60's tomorrow and Saturday. That's MN!

I can't believe that some places are still getting snow and freezing temps. My GF in Illinois says they have freeze warnings up. My Easter lilies are about to bloom.

You're so sweet - P!!

Hope y'all enjoy that pizza tonight and have fun with the kids!

I wouldn't know how to operate one big shot - much less, two! LOL! Keep that spare though - you never know when you'll need it!

Default Hello

P-Glad the power came back on for the sake of the movie- pizza sounds good too- have fun with the G-kids!

Lynn- how is your back- be careful not to hurt yourself working out there!!!

Yikes- a blog hop with 50 something people- that is ALOT!!! WOW! How long does it take you to hop through all of those blogs???

Paige- lucky you- no cleaning!!! LOL

We will be celebrating my hubby's Birthday tomorrow- well today- the 6th.... We have an interesting neighborhood situation- one neighbor's birthday is 4/2 and two others with 4/6...... (all of the men...)

No stamping for me today... too much to do. I did manage to look through files and print some digi's tonight.....I am off work for a few days, but will work extra either Mon or Tues...

The girls will be arriving home tomorrow- so I have to clean a little, make beds, etc...hope to stamp a little bit. I printed out the image to CASE Marilyn again- now I will make 2 to CASE Lynn's as well! I did not start my technique- plan on it though- started pleating the sides- what a cool cool project!

Glad the tornado's missed everyone in Texas!

I am not sure what we will have to eat on Sunday- one of the girls does not eat Ham (picky picky picky eater....) , and the other is a Vegetarian...... Maybe we will have our Ham when we can really enjoy it!

My son did not even know it was Easter this weekend when I texted him today......... 2 yrs ago, he did not come home from college because he knew I would make him go to church- so senior year I did not insist he go. So, I am not sure what to do with my youngest..... Hmmmmmmmm My other daughter will come with us without any trouble. She has a paper due, so told hubby she could not come home until Tuesday, so that has changed and she is coming tomorrow, but it will be a surprise- how fun!

This is the first year I am not buying chocolate bunnies and candy and the entire family is not together.....

Ok- gotta get to bed! I guess I am the member that Tucks everyone in! I just cannot seem to get to bed early!!!
Sweet Dreams!!!

Shelly

Shelly, I'm sorry the whole family won't be together for Easter. I know how that feels.

Good morning everyone! I'm sure I'll be in and out on here, but in case I miss anyone, I want to wish you all a Happy Easter and a fantastic holiday weekend!

I'm working on some cards for some challenges and will have those posted throughout the day and weekend. I've got ideas and I need to get them out before I lose them!

Also, today is my debut as a new DT member for McMahon Five Design! My blog posts about that will go live shortly.

Paige, every time I turned around today, up popped another card that you did! Loved them all too. You've been just WAY TOO BUSY girl! LOL! My mind can't work that fast!

Congrats again on the new DT - fantastic.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Easter weekend. I'll try to pop back in tomorrow - and if not, will on Sunday.

Lynn

Default Happy Easter

Popping in to say Happy Easter to everyone!!!

My oldest daughter had her term paper deadline moved back, so she was able to come home- I did not tell my hubby- so it was a Birthday surprise for him- fun...!

I was able to stamp a card for something I forgot I signed up for...I am the card captain all week next week for Michael Strong Yahoo group........ I have Monday's done....

I hope to shop a bit with the girls tomorrow and will try to get my CASE cards done. They both have school work to do, so after we shop a bit, we will go out to eat.

See you all in blogland sometime this weekend!

Shelly

Hi everyone!

Popping in here really quick to wish you all a great Easter weekend! Shelly: we are facing the first Easter where I make no goodie baskets, or gifts for the kids. In fact, DH & I just figured out what we want for Easter dinner. I think we will be alone for the first time. It's ok, though. I'm only a little sad about it.

I have to get busy in the kitchen now though. We have a funeral today at our church for a sweet woman who lost her battle with cancer this week. Its so unusual to have a funeral between Good Friday and Easter Sunday, but I think it's to accommodate out of state family members.

Later today I hope to get inky so that I can get caught up with my crafting buddies.

Paige: Congratulations on the new DT!!! So well deserved!

Sama, glad you got to spend some time with your grands. They are such a blessning. The 2 that live closest to me are getting up in years already and it's hard to schedule time with just them. I do miss having them over to spend the night.

If you haven't tried the card box, you should. It really wasn't as hard as it appeared to be. I'm still going to make one more before Mother's Day.

I'll have to look more into a Big Shot. I love my Bug and haven't felt the need to get anything else.

I never did get through that whole blog hop. I think I got up to about 30 and that took me 2 days. After that, got too busy to check on it again.

Happy birthday to your hubby. Hope you all had a great time celebrating.

We're having Easter dinner at my sis's house. She has the space and most of the family, so my dd and her family and I will go celebrate with them. We're all bringing dishes to share. I'm making Cheesey potatoes in my crockpot, baked beans, and lemon squares.

Hope you do have your family all there with you.

I did buy Easter candy and made up baskets for my granddaughter who is in college and she was not going home. She only has another month left for the semester. Sent one also to her sister and my daughter/son-in-law. I also made one for my 2 grands that live here and my other daughter/son-in-law. I'll take them tomorrow at my sis's.

Glad that your daughter came home. It's always great to have everyone together.

I've never heard of Michael Strong Yahoo. What is that?

So sorry about the woman who passed. I have 2 good friends right now battling cancer. One just finished up all her chemo treatments and has a good outlook. The other just had a very experimental treatment for hers and did not get the results they were hoping for, so she continues her treatments until she decides to stop them.

Hope you and your hubby have a nice Easter together and enjoy you day. Maybe there's something special the two of you can do on the day that you wouldn't ordinarily do.

I am actually going to have breakfast with my GF that has cancer and still doing the treatments. We don't get to see each other very often. Seems that when we make plans, something comes up. I love going out for breakfast.

Then I've got to go up to the church and work on some bulletin boards. After that, I'll have time to myself so hope to get some stamping done. I have a couple challenges that I need to finish up.

Hope everyone had a good day.......................
And are getting ready to start another week! Yikes!

I don't even have a card for tomorrow for my blog! I'm SUCH a slacker!!! Actually I've been sick all weekend and will be heading to the doc tomorrow! Nothing serious, just my yearly bout of allergy going into sinus, going into chest, shutting down all systems! LOL! If I could just get a little sleep it'd be nice right now. Hopefully, doc can give me something to get me perking again..............

Good morning Stamp Addicts. Had a lovely time at my sister's yesterday. She had 28 people there with family and friends. I didn't stay too late because I needed to get home and work on my card for Perfect Sentiments. Got that done and was able to get to bed at a decent hour.

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS!!!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter celebration.
We headed out to our DD for 'lupper' (lunch/supper) It was just us and my DS little family and my MOm....the day was gorgeous and all the Gkids had such fun time together too. We got home at a decent hour and I was able to finish working on some of my cards...(Maggie are we twins?? ehehe)
btw, congratZ on your winning...wowww!
Lynn I sure hope you are feeling better today! I have my card case posted on my blog too if any of you like to take a peek
Shelly I love your 'hard to breathe' card...so hilarious! I hope you and your friend had an enjoyable breakfast together catching up on your lives...I'm sure it was great to be able to share some quality time together....
Darlene, thinking of you often these days...next Easter you and DH could opt to hop on the first plane and come and spend it with us...I am even willing to share my adorable grandkids with you my friend! I kept Easter low keyed this year too ...in fact I didn't even make an Easter card...can U believe it?
I had several made last year and I even forgot to give those out!!
I did make sure the Easter bunny 'popped' up both last Sat at my brother's place and yesterday at my DD's house....it always makes me smile to see the reaction of the children once they open the door and...squeeled in delight, especially the youngest ones!

***Have a GREAT start to th eweek everyone!!!! ***

When my girls were small, we coined "Linner" for lunch/dinner.

LOL! Yes, we squeeze in the time wherever we can.

Sounds like you guys had an enjoyable weekend with the family.

Actually, I think next year I'm going to do more Easter cards. The ones I did this year were fun, mostly because they were for challenge commitments that I had.

I've been fighting with my mono adhesive all day. I usually use my ATG, but in my periodic attempt to use my stash, I pulled out the mono. I must have a bad batch of refills as the first one had the backing paper coming out crooked and wrinkled and it eventually tore. The next one the adhesive wasn't coming out in an even layer and what did come out wasn't sticking very well. Very frustrating! Guess I'll put the mono away until the need to use the stash arises again.

What is everyone's favorite go to adhesive?

Hello everyone! Long church meeting tonight, now I'm trying to wind down and go to sleep.
Paige: I have been struggling with adhesives lately. There's a little one like the Mono made by 3M that I like. Someone gifted me an ATG and I'm still getting used to that.

I have it all, glue sticks, double sided tape, the ATG beast, Tombow, gave up on the Dotto thing, and some other type of small hand held applicator of sticky dots. And I seem to have a love-hate relationship with all of it. A friend has sent me another type of tape for the ATG so I have yet to try that, have to wait for the current roll to empty out.

OK, your very tardy member here has finally completed one of the past CASE assignments! Shelly - I just posted a couple of CASEs of a CAS card of yours. CAS was all that I could manage, 'cuz girl, you really create beautiful and intricate cards!!

I have an ATG, but it doesn't always work for me. Last time I used it I had to put in a new roll. They don't go in very easily. Then it wasn't working right and it finally tore with me trying to get it to work right. I finally had to take that one out. I'm using it just with the roll. I did find a new brand of mono at Hobby Lobby, and I really love it. It's made by Ad Tech. The adhesive is really strong and once you put something together, it stays together so you have to be careful and get it right the first time.

I looked for it online and found it at a discount so I ordered a bunch of it. Should be here any day now.
