Best Laid Plans...

Hi Stampers,

Looks like my Saturday didn't really work out as planned.  We had a busy day planned out with a friend of ours coming over for a playdate/creating her daughter's first communion cards, and two birthday parties to attend.  None of them happend for Avery and I.  Avery ended up getting a stomach bug and got sick overnight.  She ended up sleeping in three different beds because she kept throwing up all over the sheets and it looks like I don't have enough sheets to keep changing the bed.  Mental note - BUY MORE SHEETS :)  Don't they say three is a charm?  After three times of throwing up and our third bed she finally settled down and went to sleep.  She had a decent day yesterday with little eating and drinking so hopefully it was just a 24 hour stomach bug.

Any who...while at home with Avery while Maya was out at her two birthday parties I had a lot of time to play in my craft room.  This sketch comes from Just Add Ink Sketch #158 and a courtesy of Mae.

When I saw this sketch I knew right away I wanted to do an Easter card.  I can't believe Easter is a week from today and I still have to make and mail out my cards.  YIKES!!!

It is my first time using two new products from Stampin' Up!.  These products can be found on the Spring Catalog.  They are the Soda Pop Tops and the Delicate Details Lace Tape.  I have had these for a little while but haven't used them on a project.  I am really happy with the end result.  Have you used these two products before?  If so, what do you think about them?
