Pin It


Spring Greetings!

Happy Friday! Hope your day is going well! I've been a wee bit lazy, sleeping late, followed by a short nap, heeee! I have done a little cleaning up, but need to do some more in-depth, sigh...

In the meantime, I'm taking a break to share this card I made a few weeks back for a sketch swap for my Sensational Swappers group. They gave us this sketch, which came from Splitcoast, so this is what I came up with. I used my precious little chick stamp from Red Lead Paperworks. I was so excited I finally used that striped ribbon. I bought it over 10 years ago at my favorite store Rue No. 1 in Highland Park Village, which has since gone out of business. I didn't even papercraft then, I just loved ribbon. It has a teeny bit of wire along the edges, made shaping it a dream.

Did anyone get off any good April Fool's Day pranks?! I never thought to try, but one of my students got me good. He came up to the classroom around 7:40 and told me that the window was broken out of my car! In the school's neighborhood, that is totally believable, it's happened twice to the church van overnight. I jumped up and yelled "WHAT?!" and ran to look out the window (I'm on the 3rd floor, but can see the parking lot from the windows), and half way there I realized it was probably an April Fool's Day! lol! Then he told me he did the same thing to his mom and he got her too! I was impressed with his creativity! lol!

Hope you have a wonderful day! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!
