Fable Friends for Easter

What a fun week I had last week.  Ashley was here for a whole week and we had so much fun.  While Sonny golfed most days, she and I shopped, lunched, played Hand and Foot (canasta game) with my Newcomer friends, went to Hip Hip Hooway! and painted signs to hang on our doors .....!  Wednesday she went with us to play trivia.  We thought she'd be a great one to have on our team but we ended up doing the worst we have ever done!!  Thursday night we went to a new bar/restaurant in Cornelius and were entertained by a Dueling Piano group.  Small world - they had a drummer on stage with them and turns out, he was a guy Ashley knew from her Rock Boat cruises.  Friday night we had dinner with the family.  We were happy the newly wedded couple joined us (my nephew and his new wife.)  Saturday we drove up to Hickory and visited a couple of breweries that we like there.  Sunday bright and early, we drove her to the airport and said good bye until we get together in May in DC for house hunting!  Sunday was also our 46th anniversary!!  Sonny and I didn't do much to celebrate.  We did go to a pancake restaurant that we like in Charlotte.  It was yummy!

But I am done with eating that way for a while!!  I just barely made my Weight Watchers weigh-in on Monday.  The first time in two years that I was worried about the scale.  This week I am trying to eat better - lots of salads, fruit, veggies, yogurt, hummus, etc!!  Plus I started walking yesterday after breakfast.  Two days of walking - 1 1/4 mile each time!   It will be bathing suit weather pretty soon and I am going back to Hawaii at the end of May so I know I will be eating good there!!

I have a few Easter cards to show you.  I love the images in the Fable Friends stamp set.  I didn't buy this set but one of my friends did and let me borrow it last week while she was out of town.

I used my Aqua Brush and reinkers to flick some color onto the card.  I stamped the little bunny on scrap white paper and cut her out.  I colored her with my Stampin' Up! blends.

Oops - I see that a few of the pearls that I put in the center of the flowers have moved.  I'll be fixing that!

Isn't this duck and her ducklings the cutest???  I colored them with the SU Blends.
