Happy Easter...

to everyone - I hope the Bunny visited and you're able to visit with family and friends on what is (at least here in Maryland) a beautiful spring day! 

I mentioned in a previous post about my new neighbors and that they just had a baby girl!  I got to see her this morning for the first time.  BEAUTIFUL!  She looks like her equally beautiful older sister.  We had been out of town for a few days, so I haven't been doing any stamping, but I needed that baby girl card, so got to working.  Funny thing is, as I read through some wonderful comments from this week, I found a new challenge blog when Jean of left me a note!  Funny thing is, their challenge was "new beginnings" (including pastels).  She left such a nice note about all of her family's new beginnings and it made me think of our new little neighbor and getting to meet her today.  When I finished making a pastel pink version (with chocolate accents...though they seem to look black!), I figured I better just go ahead and do a baby blue version, too...yep...2 more co-workers expecting!  Always good to fill the card box for those kinds of occasions! 

Also while we were away, I got another WONDERFUL comment from the Deanne, Lesley and the ladies of Christmas Cards All Year 'Round!  I was chosen as the winner for the March use a snowman and a mostly green card!!  Here is my entry.  How exciting!!  I actually can't wait to play again with these's a fun challenge, it's a month long (so no hurries) and it stocks the box for Christmas cards we all know we'll need!  Stop by and give it a try!


  1. Beautiful cards Shannon. So glad you joined in our challenge. We'll be posting our next challenge later today and hope you find time to play along.
