Lots of good stuff going on there. I procrastinate on purging photos too - especially because I seem to have so many random ones that I snapped for the blog over the years. What a great birthday "card" they made for her.
Such lovely coloring on those cards.

Beautiful cards. You've enabled me on the Gina K templates. I have some Queen & Co. foundation dies which are quick becoming staples in my card making, but I don't have anything that cuts that perfect mat. Thanks for sharing.
So so pretty. You are very blessed with flowers, you lucky lady.

Pretty - and it looks involved even though it is a single layer. Your color choices are spot on.

I think I will order the Churchill book for hubby for Father's Day. He and I listened to a John Grisham short story (1.5 hours) on a car ride the other day. It only reinforced to us that we both think he is way overrated. The stories are okay, his style is just too plain for our tastes.

You are the master of beautiful details on a card that first looks so clean and simple. What a pleasure both at first glance, and later on taking in the small bits of interest you've added.

Gorgeous! Your fave is my fave too; although that first one comes in a close second.
Those clusters are just beautifully done, and the flair anchor them so nicely. Lovely layout.
Those camera cards are so clever. I have so many extra photos, that I keep telling myself I will use them on cards, but then never do. Your watercoloring is lovely. Right now I am playing with alcohol markers, but watercoloring in on my list of things I want to improve. Of course, it will take me quite some time to be in your league.

Beautiful cards, that last one is particularly stunning, with its vibrant colors that work so well together.

I love both the drama of that card, and the peacefulness brought on by those lovely flower photos. Thanks for sharing both.
These times are definitely ones that support that old adage - the more the merrier. Glad the official quarantine is behind you, although the un-quarantine is no where no normal. But we are grateful for every little bit of freedom we can find, aren't we. Stay well, all that exercise is good for all of you!

Such cute, cute cards. Lamb sounds wonderfully fancy - that is the kind of meal Easter celebrations deserve. And I understand the bittersweet feelings of food connected to those we loved who are no longer with us. Thanks for your kind comments on my blog post. I was almost afraid to admit that my current disappointments were combating all the eternal optimism I was supposed to be feeling. We just, must keep our eye on the end game, and remember that this too shall pass. Hope you have a blessed week.

Wow, another beautiful card. I keep deciding for and against doing a 100 day challenge. I feel a bit too scatterbrained to pull it off right now. But I would like to spend more time coloring with copics and watercoloring stamped images. Maybe I should start with a 10 day challenge. 😉
I think that outdoor walks will be lifesavers too. I just added the Charity Miles app on my phone before yesterday's walk, so I can be chalking up a few pennies for charities who will definitely be needing it. Take care and stay well.

That is simply wonderful. Thanks for sharing with us. You've got me thinking about my own Mom now, thanks for that too.

There are some great ideas there. I might have to tackle the one about the 5 year old or more photos.

That is so pretty. The joy you are expressing in water-coloring certainly translated to that card.

I'm late getting around but have thoroughly enjoyed your last few posts with heart after heart after heart. Love the variety - they lifted my mood each and every one!

I've started with Pilates classes in this new year - only 2 a week and I need to be doing more on my own at home. I am progressing with the Plank but the side plank totally throws me off. I am feeling the most benefit from the balance enhancing exercises. Use it or lose it I keep telling myself!

What a sweet page about your girl! And yes, I've scrapped various blurry photos where it added to the action of the story or by default put the focus on something else. I am still too slow to cull and edit photos, but that is something I hope to get better at this year, along with taking more snaps in the first place.

Oh my goodness, what a full head of hair she has at that young age - no doubt long thick tresses are in her future. How are your braiding skills, Grandma?

That is a good choice. I like that last quote although at my age, I don't want to start "over", but I am happy to start "anew." And I like the synonyms verve and zing! Hope you experience it all in 2020.
