An Update...and Easter!

I've been such a bad blogger...but for lots of reasons.  I'm talking about not only computer, internet AND camera issues, but a nasty infection that has literally kicked my hind end.  I have an iffy history with antibiotics (we're definitely NOT good friends) which always makes any infection harder to manage than it should be...anyway, I'm on the mend and soooo happy to be back to the land of blog!!
I have so much to share, so let's start with some Easter fun!  As I wasn't feeling so hot, I went with something simple and used some of my faves for this year's card...Papertrey Ink cardstock, ribbon, doily die and stamps; SU! ink; and Cosmo Cricket DP.  A couple sweet pearls seemed just the right final touch. 
There was a lot of "buzz" on the PTI forum about Easter foodie projects using Peeps...and I couldn't resist joining in the fun!.

I'd be lying if I said the cake was the hit of the Easter party...the hit of any party is ALWAYS our grandson, Timothy!  The weather was beautiful...perfect for his first egg hunt!
Such fun for our sweet boy!  Thanks for visiting!


  1. so cute, and yes I mean your grandson. Nothing makes life better than a visit from the grandkids.
    the card is nice too, and the cake is really cute also.
    Have a great day

  2. Oh my! The look on Timothy's face is priceless, he is SO adorable! LOVE how you arranged the peeps on the cake and the yellow and dark brown would make a striking centerpiece on any Easter table!

  3. Oh gosh, that face is just TOO cute, Sue! Too cute.

    I really like the card,too. Sometimes simple is better than complicated! :)

    Hope you're feeling better now.

  4. Welcome back, Sue. Sweet little faces like Timothy's always brighten people's lives. I'm sure he gave you the final lift into being yourself again.
    Cute card. It's a classic design that works in so many different ways.

  5. so cute...the cake and the little guy:) glad you're feeling better!
