CASology - Garden #92, Colourq #238 and Papertrey Ink - April Blog Hop


Hello...it seems like it has been forever since I have made a card and written a blog post. This week we are off for Easter Break and have been trying to get caught up with a few other projects, cleaning and lunch out with friends and spending time with family. Last Saturday was Record Store Day, we were up at 5:30 and in San Francisco and in line by 7:00 (we were about 12th in line so not bad at all) and now the wait begins,4 long hours but once inside Amoeba on Haight Street and limited edition release vinyl in hand, it was all worth it to see the smile on Ashleigh's face.


Monday was a fabulous day...meeting up with Darnell and Harriet for lunch at the outlet mall in Livermore, so many fabulous stores. We ate lunch in their little food court and then back to shopping...once Darnell and Harriet saw the Ghirardelli store it was pretty much over, they were both in chocolate heaven. And here is a photo, can you guess who bought the most??? Now had we been in M&M world the story would be different, that is about the only chocolate I eat (give me candy corn or jelly beans). Once finished there we went to Talbots and what a hoot, these two ladies were trying to figure out how had the bigger boobs, and yes I did say boobs. At one point I was sure both Darnell and Harriet were going to lift their shirts! They are so funny. 


And now on my cards...I have 2 to share with you. Both are for CASology (this week's cue card is Garden) and Papertrey Ink's Blog Hop - Embroidered Inspiration and 1 for this week's ColourQ #238 challenge.  I did not have any "stitching stamps" so I found some embroidered items on Pinterest for inspiration. Thank you so much for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your week!

  4. These are beautiful Kim and will make wonderful sympathy cards. The colours are so soft and pretty. Glad you enjoyed your lunch out, but I'm not sure I'd have the stamina for record store day!

  29. Hi Kim - I fell behind in commenting, but here I am, laughing myself silly over the 'bigger boobs' competition between Darnell and Harriet! Meeting up with crafty friends should be an 'essential food group' in my opinion! Sounds like you had a riot! I'm with you on the chocolate, although that bag of treats Darnell has is tempting! Your cards: OMGorgeous! The flowers sporting their gold pearls are stunning, and your second card, with the butterfly...swoooooonnnnn! Your cards make me joyously joyous! Love them all!! Hugs~c
