A Busy Saturday and Easter Cards

Hi everyone. How was your day today??? We had a pretty busy day for a Saturday. We picked up our finished income tax.....yay! Uncle Sam is giving some of our money back. One of the things I invested was a new computer, so some of that money will go towards it. Microsoft decided they no longer want to support Windows XP. So on April 8th "D-day" will come for those still using XP's. Kim Komando, a computer guru on the radio, said, those still on XP stand the chance of getting hacked and/or getting virus's. I took my XP off line last week, and will use it downstairs with my Cricut. Kim also says that 1/3 of the people in the world are still on XP, it's worked well for 12 years and has been a popular program, oh well, I guess that is progress for ya.

We also mailed a package off to CA to a man who ordered some CDs and tapes from JP. Then JP took off for church to clean it and then practice his accordion for the service tomorrow. Leaving me to my computer for awhile. I decided to take a short nap before JP got home. Then we were off to a thrift store, the pawn shop and Walmart. When we got home I took Kylie for a short walk then it was time to make dinner. Roasted vegies, hamburgers and baked potato. Yep a busy day....right now I have a pie in the oven if you go to Patty's blog, she talks about her "plop pie" it sounded so good, I needed to try it.
Thought I would post a few Easter Cards that I have in my Etsy store. I made this card last Easter, had a few left and decided to make a set of 4 cards for $8.50+postage. The inside of this card is calligraphy with He Lives.
I made this card a couple of years ago....the inside verse says "Happy Easter"
This card was made this year, I got the idea for this card on one of the Etsy stores....was rather fun to make....need to make some more to give to a few friends. The inside of this card is blank, but I most likely will add "Happy Easter".
This card and the purple one were from a couple of years ago, if it does not sell this year, I probably will add it to the Hospice cards next year.
This is a newer card, using the same cuttlebug folder but not cutting it out like the blue and brown cross was. Inside says "Happy Easter"

Oh....I forgot to say I bought a few tea cups and saucers and an elephant creamer. I think I will try selling them in my Etsy store. Going to try something different. I figured with the store name Cards4ubyLouise and other Treasures....other Treasures could also include some vintage things...I do have some books listed and photo's I have we shall see how that goes.

Just a reminder...I am celebrating going on 7 years doing this blog. I will be doing a gift give-away....a set of cards and an extra surprise!!! So if you would like to be a part of the give away, just leave a comment and become a follower if you aren't already.

You have a great weekend and keep looking up....I need to go check out the pie....hopefully it did not burn...hahahaha. Cheers ~ Louise

Note: The pie turned out perfectly golden to taste it when it cools down a bit.

You really had a busy day, Louise-well, except for the nap-lol
Great cards and I didn't know you had been blogging seven years! Wow! Good for you!
I saw that recipe for the plop pie and thought it sounded good and fun! Hope it tastes good, too. xo Diana

Hi Louise, your Easter cards are wonderful. When I was a little girl my daddy sat me down one day and explained to me the importance of Easter. He told me of Christ's price for man's sin and how I must not forget Easter and Good Friday and that they were the most important days of each year. He said how he knew that I loved Christmas and 4th of July and many of the holidays, but that I needed to know how Easter should always hold the number one spot in my heart. I do not remember how old I was, but I do remember daddy's words and how daddy had a huge part in my christian growth just by speaking this pure sweet truth to his little girl that day.
I love that you make handmade Easter cards . . . you're a special lady.
Connie :)
