Grateful for You


Good Monday Morning!
Make it Monday has Dawn McVey on board this morning,
showing us how lovely creating patterns are behind
die-cut windows.


This is my card, using Dawn's Vintage Linen set.
I created a frame or window with Mix & Mat: Flourishes,
and stencil pattern from Woodblock Prints.
Added a bit of depth to the blooms with pencils.

Celebrating the day after Easter in pjs, in the craft room, 
and eating left overs! 
Family left early this morning, and my girls and daughters in laws
helped clean my house before going! Love them!!!


6 of the 11. Antsy to start the hunt.


Noelle went into the pool after one egg.


Eli is so happy with his find.

We had good weather until 6 pm, and then rain. In sheets!
A perfect day! 
Ron and I went out this morning, and look what we found...


No doubt many more out there.

Do you do a Easter Egg Hunt?
It's a Penir tradition!

  3. This is elegant and beautiful Nancy! Love the Easter photos! We had rainy weather too, but hid eggs for Sweet P inside. When she found one with candy she would say "Wooooow"!! The others had little finger animals. She's into the mommy daddy finger song lately!

  10. Beautiful card! Most of our Easters were spent at the lake house. I am sure the current owner could still find a egg or two hidden in the rafters somewhere.
