I made up my Ranger Blossom challenge piece today at the same time as my Everything Wendy Vecchi birthday club cards. Killing two birds with one stone thing! LOL i hope the gals that receive them enjoy them. they were fun to do but I spent most of the day on them. Used some of my new colors of Tim's Distress Inks and some of the grungepaper I keep hoarding and not using in my stash. I need to get these things out and use them!!! They were fun to make.

I made four of them, two red and two blue.

Whoa, third post in the same day! here are my Inchies for April. Letter P is for Puppy and Umbrellas. I used shrink plastic and gel pens for my umbrellas and flowers soft on my stamped cloud image. Blue Crystal effects for the raindrops.

Made a couple of atcs this month for my United Kingdom group I swap with. one theme I chose was Transport, any type, and the last of the alphabet swap, Z is for Zebra.

Just a few of the atcs I recently sent out for my swaps this month at atcs'R'us. We have an ongoing name swap and this month we had to make for Lori and Linda Abby. I sent them each a Tim Holtz cirque atc also. Then it is Shirley's birthday this month and she is recovering from knee surgery as well, so I sent her a Time rak along with her birthday atc.

We celebrated Easter at my sister Barb's house yesterday. I made two pans of cheesy potatoes, a sweet potato casserole, and my bunny shaped bread that i filled with beer dip for veggies and crackers. I took a picture before I hollowed out his belly. My niece Erin and her husband Dan, each made a cake decorated for Easter too. Erin made a bunny cake, very cute, and Dan made a really clever cake using a cakepan for a ball, and turning it into an egg hatching, which he filled both shells with Peeps, and then colored coconut green and sprinkled around it for grass. Cute as can be, and tasty, too!

Well, I am finally getting around to adding pictures of the floor and electrical installation of the kitchen. Just have been so busy that I have neglected to do so. Another coat of paint on the ceiling from patching up where the old lights were and we can hang the rack to hang the cookware from and couple more pieces of trim on the ends of the island and it will be done. The coloring looks off again as I had the lights turned on plus the flash.

The bottom ones are during the tile laying before grout and of course Jack had to check it out as they installed it. We put an outlet on each end of the island.
