A Few Cards :)

Hope everyone that celebrates had a Happy Easter! We really did have a pretty relaxing day. I need to go through the pictures before posting any though :) Maybe Wednesday.

Mike also took the kids on a short over night road trip to Indianapolis for fun on Friday. Since Evan and I started taking our little "Evan and Mom" back to school trips right after Erin was born, Evan has been wanting Mike to do something similar. So they drove to Indiana for one night with Erin along as well :) And they had a blast!
Me. I stayed home and cleaned house. But it wasn't all drudgery. I met a friend to exercise on Friday and another friend for a movie that night - The Hunger Games :)
I did take some time for myself to relax as well.

In scrapbooking, I've been using a lot of My Mind's Eye lately on my layouts. So had a ton of scraps laying around and decided to make a few cards.
Here are two of them :)
Just cut a few butterflies from one of the papers, one strip of paper to put the butterflies on, one strip cut with my scallop punch, a stamped sentiment and done!
For this one, just a few more strips of patterned paper I cut with ribbon ends, a sentiment sticker by My Mind's Eye, plus a little punched butterfly with bling. Also simple.
As you can see, I am a simple card kind of girl :)

I'm in the process of working on a layout for a challenge right now, but have a busy week ahead! Hope to be back Wednesday with a photo of my layout and some photos from Easter :)
