Spring Break has started...

It is the first week of spring break here and so far my kids didn't get the memo. No sleeping in.
Not that I am sleeping in. Ever since the hospital stay, I have been getting up early. I have tried to sleep in, but can't.
But the kids couldn't either because today is the day the big tractors and trailers rolled right in front of our house, shaking the whole house, to replace the big pipes. And the school beside us - private - is still in, guess they start spring break next week.

The kids have spent the morning building lego, what a great invention. My kids will play with that stuff all day. I used to play with it when I was a kid, and am so glad they love it too.

I have some more cards to share with you. Made some more over the weekend, and today I am working on a few more.

I am still playing with the grey and yellow colours, just can't get enough of them!
I did change it up a bit though, I created a St. Patty's day card, very simple with older supplies:

Then I switched it up again and used purple. This was Erica's idea, and it is so pretty!! The rubon on the back is really old and half peeling off, of course after I rubed it on it started to fall apart, not before. sigh. I wish now I had rounded the top corners of the cake layers. The color is much more vibrant, but grey dreary day here makes for hard pictures!

And another of the grey and yellow colours. I seem to use white with them too. So pretty! I used a shipping tag and sprayed it with gold smooch. The old sewing machine stamp is from Stampin Up and is in the catty. I love 'old' stamp images. And I played with fabric, found that yellow stuff at a thrift store, and the silver netting on the back is from Websters Pages - which was a gift from my friend Bev, thanks Bev!

That's it for today! Hope you are having better weather than us! If not enjoy your day inside.
Sending prayers to Japan
