Happy Easter Everyone !!

Where does the time go....?? It feels like i just returned from Cuba yesterday. And i've been back over 2 weeks! And a bit tardy in blogging bad. I am in awe of all my blogging friends that work outside of the home, tend to their families, have time for themselves and still blog. My hats off to y'all ! I don't have children (well, sometimes i think hubby and the 3 cats are my children LOL) and so one would think i have loads of time to blog...and yet somehow i am forever scrambling. Ok, enough grumbling about my lack of time management.... I have some crafting to do !! LOL

I mad a couple cards to send off to Pointer Scrapbooking and daaaah, I forgot to take pictures so i could post them here ! I tell ya, i don't know where my heads at these days. It must be Spring in the air and making me all loopy.

I'm starting off this long weekend with a day of scrapbooking with a couple gal pals, Tammie and Anna at a crop put on by another friend, Denise. She is a StampinUp! rep and puts on these crops. It's a fun day of doing what i love and sharing some laughs with some great friends. I'm soooo looking forward to a day of card making. Of course, i will be lucky if i get ONE card completed in the entire 12 hours LOL, but fun will be had nonetheless.

And as for those 4-legged critters of mine.....well i think they have a bit of Spring fever too. Chevy is being extremely 'sucky' and wants more attention than usual. Bella walks around with her eyes half closed and and Hershey, well, he is just loopy most days anyways so there's really nothing different there....LOL 

This is a card i made for my nephews birthday. As you can see, he turned 30. I feel so My nieces and nephews are having families of their own now. I remember where i was the day my very first niece was born. :) This rockin' dude is fun to color, and i did so with Copics.
Here's a coupld pictures of Cuba. It was so nice there. I loved it! I can't wait to go back. And might just do that in October (fingers crossed)

We just landed and they were selling beer at the airport outside. Two for $5 ! Pick me !! It sure hit the spot. I was wearing jeans and we landed in almost 30degree weather. ahhhh the memory of it all....
 This is a shot down at the beach. The water was so calm that day, and the sky sooooo blue !

This is a picture of part of the main pool. The bar was always the depths of the water varied all over the place in this pool--it was crazy lol. The guys you see in the picture are stand on a big round concrete pedistal that is submerged a few inches under the water. They were our entertainment to say the least ! When a song played that they like, they would get on this thing and dance like no one was watching...LOL !!! As long as they were having fun, i guess....we sure enjoyed watching them shake their booties and make absolute fools of themselves !! But hey, they were having fun and that's what counts.
These old cars are everywhere in Cuba. This one was in the best shape. It's a 1956. It was a beauty. Apparently Cuba imports 'rental' retirees. There is no automobile industry on the island. I forget how and why there are so many old cars there, but Veradaro was dotted everywhere with all kinds of old cars. It was pretty neat to see.
I best go finish packing for my crafty day tomorrow! I hope you all get a chance to spend some time crafting this weekend as well as some wonderful family time !! Happy Easter everyone !!!
Thanks for stopping by...........

Back to Reality.............

Happy Monday everyone....i think... LOL
Sorry i haven't posted in awhile, but i was away in CUBA !! Yes, i said Lucky me ! I just got home this past weekend. I thought by the time we got back ( i went with a friend and her son), that it would  be Spring. I guess the joke's on me--it snowed a fair bit while i was away and i actually went snowmobiling on Sunday. I had to keep pinching myself to remind me that yes, 24hours prior to snowmobiling i was in the Carribean. Oh bliss. I will post some pictures on here as soon as i get the chance to. This week is going to be a bit of a whirlwind. I have 3 family birthdays within one week, starting this Wednesday with my Dad's. Thank goodness i made his card before i went away. That means i only have TWO to make by the weekend....LOL
My order of flowers came in while i was away too. WHOOOHOOOOO ! Oh my goodness---YUM YUM YUM. I cant wait to get crackin' and make more cards. I bought all sorts of different flowers and was going throught them tonight..... lol  I've decided to seperate most of the pakages to see if i can sell them. Some of the flowers came in large quantities and would take me quite some time to finish using them all so i made smaller pkgs to sell them. I don't think i will have any difficulty selling them--the downside to that is just horrible isnt it---? That would mean i would have to use them all myself. Oh how horrible LOL !!
Well, this gal is off to bed. I think I still have a bit of jet lag, or just 'back to the grind' blahs, my tummy's been a little queasy since the morning i left Cuba. (i didn't get alot of sleep the night before i left and have been on the go since--perhaps its all catching up to me now). I will be sure to post some pics of the vacation soon, and also of some cards.
Have a wonderful day tomorrow !
Thanks for stopping by, happy crafting !
