Our little town, Harrisburg, Illinois was hit with a deadly tornado early this morning. So far three fatalities are confirmed and over 100 injured. Many houses were destroyed and a whole strip mall was flattened. Please pray for all those affected by this. We are early risers so we were up at about 4:30 am and the thunder and lightning was unbelievable. I was headed upstairs to wake my three kids at about 5:15 to get them to a safe place when the tornado sirens went off. By the time I got them up and downstairs my husband came back inside and said it had just passed about a quarter mile from our home, he could see it. Please pray for all those who were injured, lost loved one, or lost their home.
edited to add... the fatalities are now at 10. Oh, how I pray it doesn't rise any higher.

Good morning! I have started to concentrate on Easter projects since I will have a booth at The Pink Event, a fundraiser for Cancer. It is a fun event with entertainment, luncheon, a style show, and vendors. If you live locally and would like to come it will be on March 10 from 10:00-1:00 at the SIC Foundation Building and the cost is $20.00.
I used the stamp set Every Bunny for the treat project today. I was so excited to see this set in the main catalog and bought it immediately even though it would be 8 months until Easter. So, you will probably be tired of seeing it before I have to put it away.
ps you can still order these 1x8 cellophane bags even though they aren't in a catalog right now, the item number is 124134.

For today's card I used my favorite stamp set right now, Fresh Vintage. The best part is that it is FREE with a $50.00 order during SAB. The DSP is retired but I wanted something bright and cheery on this rainy day. Thanks for stopping by!

Good morning! I have had a very busy morning already....I am trying to get everything ready to head out of town for a few days with a whole bunch of girls ages 8-13. I had planned to just take my girls but at this age they think they have to take friends along which I don't usually mind but this time we will be gone for three days. I am taking them to an indoor water park and whatever else we find to do along the way. I do have a project for today, a card using Wisteria Wonder which is a color I haven't used very often. The DSP is Sweet Shop from the Occasions Mini and this piece is embossed and very pretty. I also used the Labels Framelit die which I cut from Lucky Limeade. The DSP for the banner pieces are also from Sweet Shop. Thanks for stopping by!

Good Monday afternoon! Today I have a baby card for you, I never seem to have one on hand when I need it so I made a few of these on Friday. This one is probably not mailable, I left the clothes pins off the one I mailed but still had to pay extra postage because of the buttons. Thanks for stopping by!

Good afternoon, hope you are having a wonderful weekend. My friend Sharon was in last week and said she would like to make a "thinking of you" card so I made one. Now I am not sure if this one will make it into my next Occasions class or not but I still like it. I have no idea what the name of the DSP is because it was just laying loose in my drawer but the card stock colors are Pink Pirouette and Very Vanilla. The flowers are made with the Boho Blossoms punch and the sentiment is from a retired set as well. Thanks for stopping by!

here and knew I would have to give it a try. He is actually a little treat holder, a chocolate nugget is hiding behind him. If you would like to make one, come to my punch class tomorrow!
