Happy Easter

Good Morning! Happy Easter to my Christian followers! Easter sure crept up on me this year. As a nurse I am considered an essential employee, so with social distancing I go to work and venture out to the grocery store about once every 1-2 weeks. I make big Easter baskets for my kids every year, even though they are 19 and 21; they are light on the candy and I would fill them with fun items the kids like...books, video games, clothing, coffee pods, gift certificates, etc. Designing them is always such fun for me, but his year they are getting a deposit in their bank accounts!

Speaking of social distancing, I urge you to comply! It benefits you, your family, your friends, and health care workers. I know some do not understand the importance of this and think "It won't happen to me." but it can and you can spread it to your loved ones. The U.S. now has the highest number of COVID-19 related deaths in the world! Even more scary, it has not peaked here in the U.S.! As a RN working front and center during this pandemic, please stay home!

Those cute teeth made me pick this image as I was looking through all of Jodie's cute Easter images. Seriously though...those teeth! Love them! This bunny is colored with pencils and I've accented the eggs with glitter. The paper has been in my stash a long time; if you look closely you will see that it has a gold is so pretty in real life! Also, the paper I've used for matting is purple, not did not photograph well...darn it! This is so pretty in real life! Here is a close-up:

Hi teamie.. Thank you for being a nurse and being on the front lines.. I agree we need to stay home and just hanker down. Do our part to stop this pendemic. I know it's hard but it's harder when our loved ones aren't around because they didn't listen.. I love this Bugaboo image and your fun card. Great colors and so glad you shared over at Aud Sentiments. Be safe.. take care. Thank you for all you are doing.

Your card is adorable and so fun. I didn't realize that your kids were that age...I thought that they were younger. OOPS time flies doesn't it. Mine are almost 24 and 27. They get Easter baskets well as their critters. Stay safe.
