Sweet Saturday!

Oh, I am so glad it's Saturday!

I have had the entire day to myself, and have enjoyed every minute.....woooohooo!

I spent about an hour going over my preparations for my Nursery class, at Church, tomorrow. and really enjoyed reading the scriptures that will set the scene for what I want to bring to my little friends.........we are learning about how Heavenly Father and Jesus love us........and I have some fun songs, and activities lined up.  Got to love those little people!  They are aged from 18 months, and our "big" boy just turned 3 years, last week......love 'em to bits!

So.......what did I re-discover to play with today?
More embellishments that must have been left over from a kit.........I kind of vaguely remember them, and think they may have been from K & Co., but don't quote me on that, lol.

Here's what I came up with...............


It really made a change to make a card without an image, and that just relies on the sentiment to make the impact......


It's been an age since I made a different kind of opening, too, so I really enjoyed doing this.......


I think I'm going to send this one to a friend, to invite her for lunch.......last time we lunched together, we skipped the main course and had two desserts.......she's definitely my kind of girlie!!  :D

Just before I sign off, I want to tell you about the great challenge that Helen over at acraftykindoftruffle.blogspot.com is running all year......she has a monthly theme, and March's challenge is to make an Easter Tag and she has some lovely stuff for the winner........I should know just how lovely because I won the February challenge with this little offering.....do you remember it?.....



I've still got to make a card around it, to give to my Mam for Mothers' Day!  Good job it's late this year, in England.....3rd April, which is also my baby sister's birthday....better get crackin' then, lol.

Thanks for keeping me company,

Lovely challenges:
