I am Back!

Hello Everyone,

I first want to apologize for being away so long. Between the kids being on spring break here and colds and flu season it has been crazy around the house. But it seems like everything has calmed down here and we can get back into our routines. Which of course one of mine is to keep my blog going with new posts at least once a week if not more.
Anyone else happy to see the grass. Even though it is not yet green and lush it is nice to finally see the snow melting away. And seems like everyone is having Spring or Easter Blog Hops. I did follow a few of these and man I have to tell you there are some very talented crafters out there. Gave me quiet the boost to get my Easter cards started. One that I have to mention starts over at MadebyJacqueline, now I want to mention this cause I believe this is her first blog hop and there were some great ladies that participated in the hop.
Now my next topic I wanted to mention is that I have joined a wonderful bunch of crafters on a monthly swap called Canadian Card Exchange. So each month we have to send out two cards to two ladies or gentlemen on the list. This round goes from April to September. So I will be needing to make two cards each month to send out, now if they are the same or different is up to me. I also get to use whatever material I would like. I do believe that we can choose whichever topic we like. So doesn't have to be just a birthday card, or just a thank you card. Which is nice cause then the recipient can either keep it for inspiration or pass it along to someone else to enjoy. Now this is the first time I have done something like this an am looking forward to seeing the cards I receive. Of course I will be showing you all the cards I have send as well as the ones I have received. So on to one of the cards I will be sending this month. I used a premade card I purchased from Micheals. The patterned paper is one from an old Stampin Up stack. The blue cardstock is Michaels recollections. The image is a Stampin Up image from the SAB (sell a bration) collection. Of course I have used my atg adhesive an some mono liquid adhesive as well. I hope you enjoy and check back later in the week to see the second card I sent out. Thanks for checking in and see you soon.
