April's On the Move

I cannot believe that today is April 8. Time is just flying by! Where do the hours go? I know I'm busy, but the weird thing is that before I retired, my days seem to pass so slowly! Now that I have the luxury of doing as I please, when I wish, the days are just zipping by! I was much busier when I was teaching. After 32 years in education, I am so loving scheduling my own day!

One such activity of choice is the card I have to share with you today. I love this stamp! It is just the sweetest image. Here it is:



Lots of pop dots were used to elevate the center element. The plaid papers are not that orangy gold color, but a sweet sunny, butter colored yellow..

This is the upper inside of the card with poem I created.



This is the lower portion of the interior:



I just so love that bunny stamp!

Thank you so much for visiting! I hope you will come back again when you're in the neighborhood! I'll make us lunch!

XO,
Chris

Your card is beautiful Chris! The inside is out of this world gorgeous. I get so frustrated with the pictures of my cards because they never a true to color. Your poetry is divine - so sweet Chris.

Oh my goodness Chris, this is ABSOLUTELY adorable. Just love everything about your card.. the soft pastel colours, the beautifully coloured Tilda in her bunny outfit... oh how utterly sweet is she and all your other delightful embellishments.
