This Past Week

Hello Everyone:

This past week was a busy week. Good buzy, but nevertheless busy. My lil' man was on spring break and I took a break from the office for a couple days to spend time with him. I'm soooooooooo glad I did. As close as I live to DC, I toured places I have never toured until now. Fortunately, what took me more than forty years to experience, Kevin, Alisa, and Keyon were able to experience the same things in a fraction of that time. They had a great time.

One of my good friends and her daughter took the train with Kevin and I to Washington, DC. We met up with another friend and her son to see the Cherry Blossoms and tour some of the historical sites. Unfortunately, we learned the cherry blossoms peaked last Saturday; however, the kids enjoyed what they were able to see. Boy! We selected the hottest day of the season to do an outside tour. In between touring the War Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial, the Jefferson Memorial, the Washington Monument and a couple other places we drank plently of liquids and ate ice cream. Did I say it was hot, too? Since there is so much to see in DC, we decided to return with the children at least once a month until August. We already have a few of the sites selected for our May visit. I know what you're thinking, because I'm thinking the same thing too. I feel an 8x8 scrapbook coming on. :)

In addition to my spring break highlights, I managed to make a few cards, that I was very happy about. Each time I went to make a card, I kept making Mother's Day cards. I used a couple of my new Flourishes stamps I recieved for my birthday. It turns out that getting started on my Mother's Day cards was a pretty good thing. I had so many request this past weekend for Mother's Day cards. It's nice when people think of me and selecting their cards in the same thought.

I also attended a COPIC airbrushing class this weekend in Eldersburg, MD. I learned alot too. Of course, I left the class thinking, 'I sure would like to have a COPIC airbrush compressor system.' I still have that thought at least once every couple hours. In the interium, I'll continue to use what I have  been using--the cans. Just below are a few of the cards I managed to squeeze out this weekend. I hope you like them. I do. Let me know what you think.

Thanks for stopping by The Peddler's Gallery.

Looks like you had fun on your outing to DC! No rain, just sunshine. Great plan to visit each month with the kids too! I really like your cards using the gardening theme. Something I'll be getting to start on soon here.
