WMSC#88 - He is Risen

 Another busy day for me.  Went to the dentist for round two of my implant procedure.  I had the abutment put in and then off to my regular dentist for a crown impression.  My daughter is on Spring Break from University so she tagged along with me.  We did a little shopping and then a quick lunch at the White Castle drive through for some loaded fries - have you had this guilty indulgence yet?  If your a junk food addict like me you will want to hear about  these.  They are french fries smothered in cheese sauce and ranch dressing and topped with crunchy bacon bits.    I know .... oh so bad .... but they taste so good!!!  I figured after the dentist I was due a little comfort food.

Today I'm playing along with the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.  The sketch this week is by Renee Lynch.  I'm working on my Easter cards so I thought this would be a good chance to get another one done!   I made this one for my mom -  lots of soft pastels and just a touch of bling.   I remember her dressing us girls up for Easter Sunday - a new hand sewn dress,  hats, shoes, white wicker purses, and even lacy crochet gloves. Mom would get a pretty orchid corsage that we all fought over trying to pick the one we all thought was best suited for her.  And every year she would tell us it was just the one she wanted.  Ah ..   the good old days!!  I bet you've got some great Easter memories of your own. 

If you'd like to play along you can get all the details here:  http://waltzingmousesketchchallenge.blogspot.com/2012/03/challenge-88march-10-2012.html.  Thanks for stopping by!

I'm a JFJ (junk food junkie) too so those fries sounded yummy!
I love the pastel color combo you chose and your mom will love this! I'd better get busy or Easter will be here before I know it, yikes. Thanks for the inspiration I always find here.

OHHHH my ! Another stunning card, and I mean that!
Beautiful Easter card , with a perfect sentiment. The good ole days for sure! I remember my dad always buying my mother a corsage, and that was a big splurge for him with our large family.
Love the eggs and you win in my book!

Hey Jeanne! What a cute card! Love the way you did the swirlies in the background:)

I think I was channeling you when I did my card, lol! More CAS of course because I totally can't even touch the way you do layering;)

Hope you have a great weekend!
