Yesterday I completed two more cards for the shut-ins at my church.  So far I haven't gotten to any today as I worked today and tonite I went to an outstanding event called Via Doloroso - the story of Christ from the Last Supper to the Crucifiction.  If you ever get to attend one I would highly recommend it.  It was very powerful.  I also still have not completed all of my taxes so I have to get back to work at that. 

The first used the sketch #215 from Sweet Sketch Sunday


I used polka dots and stripes (and Easter eggs) for challenge 214 - Easter Sweetness over at The Shabby Tea Room, Easter eggs for challenge  #C4C231at Crazy4Challenges Get your Egg on!, challenge TPE246 Easter at The Pink Elephant, and Spring is in the Air challenge #1 using layers over at Sketches4All.
