Happy Easter Friends!

When I enter a new blog posting, they don't show up until the following day.  So....even though today is Easter, you won't see this till tomorrow.  That's okay, I don't want to wait till next year to post this card.

The little chick is from Stampin Up.  It's adorable. The Happy Easter is an old stamp out of my stash.  The crossed paper strips are Stampin Up paper, as is the embossing folder used for the background.  I can't remember the name of the pouffy embellishment on the chick's chest, but it is by SU.  The inside stamp is also a stamp from my stash.  The chick is stamped again on the inside corner.  The card is kraft colored base and envelope.  I gave the card to Mom today.  She smiled, and that was the only smile we got out of her today, so we were happy that she liked her card, and that it made her happy.  She'll be 89 next month.  

Here's the inside of the card

Thanks for stopping by to visit.  I'll be back later with …

I'm sorry I've been away from my blog for so long, but now you know why.  

We have new friends in California now.  Lee and Lois bought our Country Coach motor home, and we've kept in close contact with them.  They wrote and told us their daughter had been in an terrible accident and was in the hospital.  I made their daughter, Wendy, this card before I went to have my surgery.  

The owl is made with the Stampin up Owl punch.  I love that punch.  I embossed the backgro…
