A really beautiful Saturday!

Yay!! A little crafting time, some sunshine, new furniture for my living room, time with the family! It has been a really great Saturday. Typical Oregon style it has been one rainy year so far so I think we were all in dire need of some vitamin D. Everyone is in a great mood. Very nice! I am not sure if it will stick around for Easter tomorrow...but I am crossing my fingers. I also have a couple cards to share with you today.

The first one is an easter card (I just love the little chick!): 

The second is a card I made for a good friend who is really going through a rough time. Her mom who is 94 suffered a stroke and she has been taking care of her night and day. She is a wonderful person and I can't imagine being in her position right now. This is also the card for my challenge over at the Papertrey Inkers blog:

The picture of this card doesn't really do it justice. I think this is one of my favorite. It was a lot of fun and I actually got the inspiration for my shower curtain of all things. Here is a picture of the curtain:
Hope all of you have a blessed Easter!
Off to watch The Wizard of Oz with my girls.
