I fell in the rabbit hole

Happy belated Easter wishes to those whom celebrated.  He is risen indeed and I shared the holy  day with family and friends in glorious way.  It was a remarkable day and I guess I sorta fell in the rabbit hole to speak because time got away from me before I could post my Sentimental Sundays card. 
This week we are getting punchy and I took the challenge and ran with it!  It was a perfect opportunity to layer my card with yummy pattern papers from Sassafras Lass and Pink Paislee. The divine pie image is from Jane's Doodles which I colored with Copics.  Then I added a touch of red Stickles to resemble cherry pie, then sprinkled some chunky glitter on for the sugar which I attached to a punched circle on with foam tape.  My sweetie loves pie.  Not a cake fan (more for me).  Unfortunately, I am more of a cake maker than pie baker.  :-(  I will make them, but not sure they are remarkable.  My Aunt Wanda is like a Paula Dean.  She can cook and bake anything.  She talks just like her.  The nicest lady you could ever meet.  She was there this Sunday and made the best squash casserole.  I like to hear her say "spatula".  Makes me smile ear to ear.   Okay back to my card.  I punched a ticket  and oval with my EK Success punches and topped with a Melissa Frances chipboard heart.  Next I  used a banner for the sentiment (also Jane's) which I attached with my tiny attacher.  Some recycle red grosgrain ribbon and a piece of the decorative edge paper were added to give a little color and sparkle.  Voila!  It's done. 


I kinda went off on a tangent there.  Can you see how I would fall down a rabbit hole and it would take so long to get back?  I literally start something and then a long the way I get distracted by other things I find fascinating and just have to explore further.  Next thing you know, it's 2 hours later.  Please tell me you are like this?  Appease me.  I watch my daughter and she does the same.  Bless her soul.  She was doomed with my genes for adventure and curiosity.  Of course, it brought me to here and I am sure glad to be here because I feel more love and support than I ever could of imagined.

This is fantastic Amy, the pie looks good enough to eat! I think I will have to join you down that rabbit hole too, I get just as distracted, it can be a nightmare at times, and other times great fun :)
