Spring Peek & Sketch Challenge

Happy Wednesday and Hump Day everyone!
The kids have been here for a week taking us back and forth to KC to see our doctors.  It really is a big help as I get so tired of driving.  Conley won't drive anymore because of the dementia and says he is not renewing his driver's license so that just leaves me behind the wheel.  Now that's really scary...LOL

Oh my gosh, I can't believe Easter is only 3 Sunday's away but I'm ahead this year, have most of my cards done, the candy filled eggs ready to put in the baskets, and a new book for Lilly.  They grow up way to fast but it's so much fun watching and yet kinda sad at the same time.

Been a little neglectful about playing in challenges lately but I loved this sketch at Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge blog and the new EB stamps I got from Whimsy's a few weeks ago.  Each stamp has an adorable bunny on it that is perfect for Easter or any other special occasion. Well, that's enough chatter from me tonight so on with the details.

A peek at the inside.
Close up of the image.  I just love her!

"Love & Hugs" Carol (Granny)
