Happy Easter


It is a bright, sunshiney day here today!  FINALLY!  Now if we could just get the wind to let up a little so we can enjoy being outside!

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter tomorrow.  I will be going to church, and then to my mom and dad's to enjoy lunch and the afternoon with family. 

Happy 4th Birthday today to my beautiful grandaughter Kaitlyn!  I miss you and love you!  Can't wait to see you this summer.

Rainy, dreary, perfect for craftin day!

Hello everyone!  It is sure a dreary, rainy day here!  This kind of day is perfect for 2 things...either curling up on the couch under a blanket and watching tv...or crafting!  (I think all days are perfect for crafting though!)  And since I have to work, the whole curling up on the couch thing just won't happen!
Easter is coming up fast.  Seemed like we were all grumbling cause it was gonna be so late this year, but it is just a few days away.  I hope you all have your Easter bonnets picked out, and your eggs decorated!  (how many of you used silk ties to do them like my friend Cindy showed in her Blog Hop post?)  I am thinking when Joey comes over tomorrow night we just might have to try those.  Then he can take some to his teacher on Thursday!  Hmmmm......
Have a great day and if I get any craftin done I will be sure to post pics!

Bashful Bunnies Blog Hop!!

Hello, and welcome to my little corner of the Bashful Bunnies First Ever Blog Hop! 

If you are following along and started at the beginning, you just came from my friend Lisa's blog at Cuttle Fairies Express.  Isn't she talented! 

We are all part of a group of paper crafters who signed up for a swap that Jana started for St. Patricks Day on the Cricut message board.  It was a fun, secret sister type of swap and we all got to know each other and just couldn't stand for it to end, so we convinced Jana and Julie to keep it going with this Bashful Bunnies swap.  One thing has led to another and now here we are having a Blog Hop!  I never even had a blog till I started hanging out with these Bunnies! We also do a lot of enabling in our group.  The main thing is, we have a LOT of fun and have become very good friends.

When they started talking about doing this blog hop, they decided since it was Spring and near Easter that we each should make something to show on our blogs with one of those as a theme.  I don't do a lot of 'altering' of things, so I decided to make a card.  This is Tilda With Armful Of Tulips, from the new Butterfly Dreams Collection.  Isn't she pretty with all those tulips!  Everything else is from my stash.  I even used paper scraps!  The butterfly is a pretty one that Danielle sent me in the last shoebox round I did on the cricut mb.

This next card I made I just couldn't resist posting.  This image reminds me sooo much of my grandaughter, who will be turning 4 next week.  I got the image in a swap and can't remember what it is, but I will do some begging and see if I can find out what it is!  Everything else on this card is from my stash too.  (I have a LOT of stash!)

And now ..... Did I hear someone say BLOG CANDY?  I have some blog candy to give away!!  All you have to do to get a chance to win my blog candy, pictured below, is to become a follower to my blog if you aren't already, and to make a comment in this post.  Tell me in your post (along with any other comments you might have!) WHAT DOES YOUR DH/SO/FAMILY THINK OF YOUR SCRAPBOOKING/CARDMAKING HOBBY?            I will announce the winner of my blog candy on Monday morning!

Easel card

Here is an easel card I made a while back.  It is the first, and I think only one, I have ever made!  I should try more of them someday, as it wasn't that hard.  This one has a Tilda on it.  Incase you hadn't noticed yet, I love my Tilda stamps!  You will see a LOT of her on my projects.  I hope my coloring is improved from when I did this image too.  I am taking an online copics class at the SSC site and it is really helpful!

Journal Jars for my Sisters

Every summer I go to Wisconsin to a Quilt Retreat with my sisters for a long weekend.  Although I have made a few quilts, I prefer to scrapbook while there!  (There are usually 3 or 4 of us scrappers among the quilters!)  Each year I take a little gift for my sisters and these journal  jars are what I made for them last year.  The jar contains journal prompts about their childhood, dating, married life, being a parent, and being a grandparent.  Each day they are to take out one prompt and write in their journal.  Eventually the books are to be handed down to their grandchildren, which they all 3 have now by the way!  I enjoyed making the jars and journals for them and I think they all really liked them!  (Now I just hope they are using them!)

feed my fish

Please don't forget to feed my fish while you are here visiting!

wedding cards

Here are some wedding cards I have made.  The first one was for my neice and her new hubby. 2nd one is for them from their son.  the red heart on the front of it is actually his handprint on the inside done with red paint.  Last one is for one of my former daycare children when she got married.

Welcome to my little craftin corner!

Hello everyone!  Thanks for stopping by my new blog!   I hope you will join me for a glass of tea and sit back and relax with me. 
My hobby is scrapbooking and card making and I hope to show some of that here.  I don't do fancy stuff, and I am not by any means a professional, but I enjoy doing it and that is what matters the most to me.
Along with that, I will probably do a little bragging about my beautiful grandchildren too.  They mean the world to me and once I get started talking about them it is hard to get me to stop!
I will try to post some pictures of my favorite projects I have done in the next few days.  Feel free to comment and you are more than welcome to become a 'follower'.  This whole BLOG thing is new to me, so please be patient as I figure it all out!
Come back to My Little Craftin Corner soon!
