Happy Easter!

Happy Easter to you all!
My family is spending the weekend in Maryland with one of my closest friends, Penny O, along with her hubby, Patrick, and her daughter (my God-daughter), Lindsay. Penny and I have been friends for about 5 years and it has become our tradition (since she moved to MD and I moved to NC) to get together nearly monthly (sometimes bi-monthly) at either her house or mine. This time, it was our turn to drive... so Friday, we trecked 6 1/2 hours up the road to Penny's house. There really was no agenda for the weekend... just to relax, have fun, and enjoy our time together. I finally got to give Lindsay her Christmas gifts (I know - 3 months late), and I also got to give Penny the "secret sister" package that I owed her from January. I have a stamp that says "I like sending birthday cards late; thus, retaining the element of surprise." That explains me to a TEE! I am always really great about making whatever I'm going to make on time... it's the sending part that I have a hard time with... I am horrible about that!
Anyway, Penny and I got up Saturday morning and made our way to her stamp room. Normally, when I come to her house or she comes to mine, one of us ends up with "stampers-block" and we can't seem to whip anything of quality out... well, ladies, not this time... we were on a roll! We asked each other for a challenge... every time we finished one challenge, we asked for another... some were color challenges, while others were stamp challenges... some were a combo of both! We had such a great time.
One of my color challenges was to use Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquoise, and Whisper White together... I added the Real Red for a little "punch" and came up with this:the inside reads this:
The stamp set is called Sassy Suzie from Stampin' Up... I just love it! It's in the Ocassions mini catalog. She totally reminds me of myself... so sarcastic! :) I'm going to send it to my long-time friend from High School, Angela (ADM)... I got to see her last weekend when I was in Georgia visiting my Mom.
I'll be back tomorrow with some more of the cards I made this weekend... I only accomplished 6, but they were all unique and thought out... I poured my SOUL into these cards! :) Have a Stamptastic Easter and say hello to your "peeps" for me!
God Bless,
