*Spring Has Sprung*

At least that's what the calendar says. Spring arrived earlier this week and I am hopeful that our weather will cooperate and not put us back into winter until later in the year. Ya, right... I'm not going to hold my breath. This is Calgary afterall?

Hey, did anyone miss me while I was away?? I bet you didn't even notice I was away thanks to the fact that we can now schedule our posts in Blogger. To do it, simply go HERE into Blogger Draft and create a new post. Click on Post Options and choose the date and time you'd like your post schedule for. Then click on Publish Post. On the top of the next screen you'll see a notice that says your post has been scheduled. Voila! I tried it for a few days before we left just to make sure it would work.

At any rate... Bruce and I left Tuesday evening for Vegas and returned home after midnight Friday night (technically, I guess we returned home this morning). We went down with two other couples. The one couple was going down for a wedding so they met up with some family down there as well. We had some great weather and had a wonderful time soaking up the sun, wandering the strip, drinking a few Margaritas, gambling a little, shopping. Vegas is such a fun city, even for Bruce and I who really don't gamble.

I absolutely love the paper on this card. I got it in a grab bag of stuff a few weeks ago. SEI is truly one of my favourite paper companies... this one was just so fresh and bright.

Items Used:
*Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Certainly Celery
*Patterned Paper: SEI
*Images: Studio G from Michaels
*Ink: Stampin' Up! Certainly Celery; black Micron marker
*Tools: Cuttlebug and Nestabilities
*Embellishments: ribbon

We are running off to the airport now to pick up my sister and niece who are coming in from Toronto for the Easter Weekend. It's going to be a full house, but a wonderfully full house!!!
