Easter Peeps

Happy Sunday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Can't believe how fast the weekend went by.
We didn't do anything super special. Friday was our 4th fish fry at our church. It was another successful one. My shrimp & crab chowder sold out and I received many compliments from customers. The days are long and busy so Saturday is somewhat of a rest day for both my hubby & I.
I did take some more of my cards to the store that is selling them for me. This one I am posting today is one of those. I found out they are closing as of the end of May. The long cold winter was a tough one on their bottom line. I felt really bad for the owners because they are always talking up my card to their customers. I may start selling on Etsy or try to find another local store.
Today started with church in the morning and then we went over to my mother-in-laws to spend a few hours. We helped her hang some new curtains and changed out a window blind. Now it's late Sunday night and I am watching TV and typing up this post.
Now onto my card for today. I needed some additional Easter cards and the layout from this week's Splitcoaststampers sketch challenge #482 was a great one.
I used the Stampin-Up set "a good egg" for my card. Paper pieced the egg shells with designer paper from the "spring mix stack" from DCWV. I also used this same paper stack for my card background.

Stampin-Up candy dots and May Arts chevron ribbon completed my card. That's it for today. time to dim the lights in Charmed Life land for another day. So until next time.......God bless.
