Happy Easter

Just a really quick card for Easter using From the Heart image for their progressive challenge. 

I'm here, but not really - if that makes any sense.   Thanks to all for the well wishes for Jim recently.  I'm still very hit and miss around here but will try to post a card ever so often anyway.  He was released from the hospital and then ended up having to go back in for several more days.  He's back home once again but things are just crazy busy taking care of him (and myself) and trying to get everything moving forward once again.  There's just no way to get by everyone's blog every day right now but will be by when I can.  Have patience with me for now.

Thanks for stopping by........and thanks so much for your treasured friendship!

Lynn

It's so good to see you get to post something, Lynn. Don't worry about getting around to blogs...you're much too busy. I hope your husband is getting better each day. I'm sure you need some rest, too. It's hard work
caring for the needs of others.

Your card is just beautiful. I love the colored mats behind your images. You've matched them so pretty to your images. Your card sure looks like a perfect Easter to me.

This is one adorable Easter card. Love the color of that ribbon. Don't even give a thought to getting around blogland. People understand, family should and does always come first. Just take care of the two of you and nothing else. My prayers are still coming your way. Get some rest tonight.

This is an adorable card Lynn! I love how you angled the pastel cardstock and the images, gives such a great look! I know how crazy it is for you right now and no worries, you just take care of yourself and Jim. And when you have a few minutes, let yourself create some. We all understand that you just can't get around to everyone's blogs to comment and we wouldn't want you to either. Sending big hugs my friend! Brenda

We'll see you when we see you and everyone have a life outside of blogland. By the way, your card reminds me of little snip-bits of photographs - gorgeous and so pretty!

Wonderful card, Lynn. Love the inchies and how you offset the mats behind them! What a great design idea. So glad to hear about Jim's improvement.
