Coffee & Donuts

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with the Charmed Life Blog today.
It's a rainy and cold day here in Pittsburgh. In fact, it's supposed to rain and possibly snow the rest of this week. We just came through a 4 day stretch of sunshine which is unusual for us. But, it did help to melt the 7" of snow that was on the ground from last week.
So today is one of those days that it's perfect to stay indoors in the craft room. My hubby is at work until 7:00 pm so I can stay in here all afternoon. I have a couple of cards to make and then I will work on cleaning up the room. Don't know about you but when I am in here creating, it gets messy so quickly.
I am on Easter break from pre-school. We are off until next Thursday, April 5. I am also having Easter dinner here at my house and there will be 10 of us. My usual dinner is ham, hash brown potato casserole, fruit salad, mac n' cheese and a cooked veggie and some dessert. Nothing too complicated because I like to enjoy the family time.
I have lots to do to get ready for the day - cleaning, shopping and getting my Spring /Easter decorations out. Don't know why I haven't decorated yet. But, that's okay because I will leave the decorations up through April.
So let's move onto my card for today. This one I created using some Rise & Shine dies from CottageCutz. They are breakfast themed and the DT has made some really cute samples with the dies. See those here here and here.
I wanted to created a card to let that special someone know you love them. It could be used for an anniversary or birthday or even at Valentines day by changing up the patterned paper.
I used the Coffee & Donuts dies on my card. The sentiment is from a Taylored Expressions set. The designer paper is from the old Stampin'-Up Sweet Pea collection.
Well that's it for me for today. Time for me to get busy with my planned activities. So until next time..........God bless.
