aren't you {sweet}

Two days in a row...with one more ahead planned --I'm in shock! lol  When the iron strikes, I decided I'd better go with it. ;)

Here's another card I made this week:

 Chloe pointed out that I'd forgotten to add some glitter pen to the candy bouquet bow, but I didn't want to re-take the pic so you'll just have to imagine it. ;)  Leave it to her to find my flaws. lol

Even though our weather can't make up its mind what season it is, spring has definitely sprung {in my heart anyway}.  I {heart} these cheery colors, and I {heart} the sketch from Jen del Muro's latest Sketch For You To Try {haven't played along in quite a while, and I actually have another card in the works with this same sketch --fun stuff!}.  Told ya there were some great sketches floatin' around blogland this week! 

Well, I need to keep my posts short and sweet this's our sweet little eagle-eyed flaw-finder's 10th birthday on Sunday and we're celebrating a little tonight and tomorrow so we can spend Sunday celebrating Easter.  She's beside herself with excitement over the thought of becoming a "double digit," as she puts it. lol  I hardly remember what that was like, though I do remember the new Schwinn 10-speed I received as my gift that year.  Ironically, my hubby decided we should gift both of our youngsters with mountain bikes this year {they had both outgrown their old bikes}...and they're both thrilled!  Must be genetic...though the enthusiasm for riding them definitely comes from my hubby {I'd much rather stay home and stamp -lol}.  ;P 

Well, I've got a LOT of cooking to do between now and tomorrow night, so I'd better git. 

Hope your weekend promises to be as special and memorable as ours looks to be.  Of course, as I type this, a friend of ours from high school is being memorialized in my hometown {I still have a picture of us from a dance we went to together}, so my heart is saddened, my thoughts distracted, and my prayers lifted.  May you rest in peace, Jeff.

Thanks so much for the visit, and I hope you'll stop by again soon. Until then, many blessings to you!

Oh my goodness, this is a darling card! I love everything - the colors, the stitching (even on the ribbon for heaven's sake!) and it just shoots right the top for me! Adorable!

Enjoy your weekend - lots to be thankful for!

What a wonderful card, Christi! You are right, you've got to strike while the iron is hot and I'm so glad you are fired up!

Sounds like you have a whole lot to be thankful for this weekend and I hope you enjoy every minute of celebration! Happy Birthday to Double Digit Chloe!!

PS I can't believe you commented on each of my recent posts. It was like opening smile after smile. Thanks! *Ü*

Your card is 'so sweet'. I love the candies and the way you colored them. That paper is the perfect choice for those yuumy confections!

So sorry to learn of your friend passing. My heart goes out to you.
