Easter Sunday

Decided to post something while I am waiting for family to arrive. Liam is napping. Food is done. Mitch is driving back from the airport. Quiet time for me. Ah...

This will be Liam's 3rd Easter even though he is only two due to the way Easter is scheduled year to year. We started the morning with a mini Easter egg hunt. He enjoyed it...calling out the colors of the eggs as he found them scattered throughout the living room, then he hit the jackpot by the fireplace. The Easter Bunny had made a little scene with several things he had gotten in the past couple of years, so the jackpot was really not that big. All of it was new to him again. A couple things he got were Bertie the bus, a book about Easter, a brush for his animals, a Pooh bubble maker and a card from Ma'i and Da'i.

I feel in love with this vintage-type image when I saw it in Archiver's yesterday. I have never purchased a stamp by Northwoods, but I was throughoutly impressed by this one. All in all I was happy with the card except for a couple technical issues. The luxury cardstock did not seem to emboss well. (This was the first time I had dry embossed with it, so maybe better luck next time.) Also, I have been slowly collected Copic markers and didn't have any orange. What the heck was I thinking? I had to use markers to watercolor the carrot.
