fly away with me







Was your Easter wonderful?  I hope so!  Ours was nice..it was also my Dad's birthday so we spent the day with my parents and mixed traditional Easter yummies with my honey chicken enchiladas...it was a small smorgasbord.  It was so nice spending time with my parents.  My Dad is now 72...which I can't believe.  They had me a little later in life..which is quite normal now, but wasn't in the 70's.  We have a very small family but I cherish them so much! 
Well I came by of course to share a few projects...cards...with a light and airy look...whimsical.  More of the Pink Paislee diecuts.  My soul craves these colors right now...we have had storms and snow until I just want to scream.  It is just strange. I guess I have a bit of a theme with out even realizing it...wings.  Each card either has a bird image, nest, butterfly, or fairy.  Hmmmm maybe I want to soar away to a warm sunny climate.  Sun please come and stay and play.    I also made another vintage plaque...I found an old vintage Italian scroll frame and painted it white....it was perfect to frame this velvet prima rose I adore.  I love to pair the old and new together.  You would never know which is old and which is new.....a perfect marriage.  Well that is it for me this eve.  I am gonna go take a hot shower and go to bed!  See ya on Wednesday with a bit of an annoucement and stay tuned to see the new CupCard kit for May!  It is dreamy.....hint hint.    hugs,c herry

Beautiful, beautiful cards and plaque, my friend! I love all the soft whites and pastels, and how fun to see a bit of the ribbon I sent you showing up here and there. :)
Looking forward to your announcement, and wishing lots of sunshine your way.
