what a {glorious} day

What a wonderful, glorious, happy day!!  It's Easter!  ;D

I found a great blog post on Friday that you might like to read if you're not quite sure what's so glorious about someOne dying on a cross over 2,000 years ago.  It was written specifically for Good Friday but it has everything to do with Easter, and because I could never say it so eloquently, I think I'll just link you up here if you care to read it. 

And in addition to it being Easter, today also happens to be our sweet Chloe's birthday as well.  My baby is now ten --they grow up far too fast!  This is the first time it's ever fallen on Easter, so we celebrated her birthday yesterday...and Friday...and a little today too.  She's quite happy, and I think the apparent perpetual sugar-overload isn't lessening the experience any for her either.  ;)

Here's the card I made her:

I know the focal panel looks washed out...and it kinda is in person too {just not nearly as bad as it seems here}.  Time was in short supply and my coloring skills were sorely lacking, but Chloe likes it so we're happy.  And that's what counts, right? ;) 

I used Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch for last week.  It was a fun one!

Well, the sweet potatoes are about done baking, the peanut butter cup cheesecake is ready and waiting...time to head out to share the day with some wonderful friends.  I don't want us to be late so I'll have to come back and add my recipe list later. ;)

Happy Resurrection Day to you all!

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

What an adorable card! And "Lily" doing her flighty-dance reminds me so much of Chloe ;-) And I LOVE the twisty-tie cross that Noah made! Awesome!

What a sweet card, for a sweet young lady. Belated Happy Birthday, Miss Chloe! She shares the same birth date as My Man. Super cool cross Noah! He made that with twist ties? Very impressive!

Okay.. I'm almost a month late, but hope you had a wonderful Easter and a happy birthday to Chloe. Your card for her is absolutely wonderful, Christi!
