2 years today!!!!! Eggstra Special Easter Wishes-Traditions

Feb 6, 2008 Author: mytime | Filed under: Cards

OK I planned this post differently till I realized WHAT today is. 

I just have to shout that it is Alexa’s 2 years into Chemo today!!! She was diagnoised/started treatment Feb 6th of 2006!!! WOW!!!

We now have offically 6 months left.

Feels like just a few months ago, and almost like a dream-OK a nightmare, that I was sitting there listening to the most frightening news I had ever heard in my life.

 But God has been good, and she has been Cancer FREE!!! I know there has been a purpose for all of this.

I promise when you go through something like that EVERYTHING in your life changes.

I know “I” have changed immensely. I view the world, life and people so differently. I take NOTHING for granted.

I am so much more thankful and driven. I realize the need to enjoy every day, and see no guarantee’s of tomorrow. You need to do what you can TODAY! Don’t wait. You may not get that chance.

I just pray endlessly that she will continue to be strong and beat this.

I appreciate everyone’s support through the past 2 years.

It really has past so quickly, as the worst is behind us.

OK now onto the post I had planned-sorry for getting side tracked, but this is a huge day for us.


When I made this card, the idea, for an egg shape, came by looking at the egg in the set. It’s a REALLY cute egg.

It is called Eggstra-Special Easter.

I thought it would be fun to use other MFT stamps to make my pattern on my egg.

So I inked up Behind the Scenes, and away I went.

 I used my coluzzle oval to create the egg card. Fold at the side. I think alot of us think egg shaped greetings when we think Easter.

As a kid my mom made the BEST Easter baskets. My FAVORITE thing to get was Cadbury Creme Eggs! OMG!

They are always a diet killer for me. I even LOVE the new Caramel filled ones. Every-time I see one I think if being a kid. One year my mom put JUST a basket of those yummies for me. It was awesome. My dad would sometimes go to the candy shop, and get us really cool Easter candy-like the eggs you peek into, and there is a bunny scene. They are made of pure sugar. So pretty. I would keep mine for years. Then finally have to toss it.

My brother loved the Reese peanut butter eggs-so we would often trade candy. He wasn’t a big Candy person, and would keep his forever!

I would sneak into his room and “borrow” some of his neglected candy. He never noticed, till it was almost gone, and realized HE didn’t really eat it! LOL! What good is getting an Easter Basket of candy if its JUNE and its still full? That is candy abuse.

Every year we would spend HOURS decorating Easter Eggs. We would color on them with crayons, then dye them. A tradition I try to carry on with my own children-who would rather THROW them into the dye :C Maybe this year. l

Last year we did 3 different egg hunts with the kids. The kids really all got the whole concept. I believe Noahfound the most.  He was VERY competitive about it. A True boy. Reminds meof my brother.

I was always the one to find the egg with the $1 on it. He would pitch a FIT over it, every year! I LOVED it.

 We actually went to Alexa’s Make a Wish trip to Disney ON Easter last year, and they got all kinds of cool Easter stuff there.

It is hard to believe that was almost a year ago. WOW! That FLEW by. Thank goodness!

OK sorry about trailing off down memory lane-you are here for the card-

The bunny is flocked. So its cute and fuzzy. It reminds me of the white bunny banks that were fuzzy, with red eyes. I would get one like every Easter! I loved to touch it, and always found the red eyes a bit creepy :C Anyway-this one is CUTE!

Thought I was going to go off again, didn’t you?

The butterfly is a acrylic embellishment from K & Co. Really cute.

I hope you will be up for the MFTeaser party tonight from9-11 p.m. Eastern time. Lots of fun is planned including finding out how YOU can be the next MFT Guest Designer. Head over to the MFT forum on to find out all the details and join us there tonight.

I would love to hear of your Easter Traditions. I believe Greek people have some interesting ones. I also love to hear WHY you do certain things. So feel free to chime in here OK!

Till tomorrow-or tonight if you go to the MFT PARTY!!! 😀

What does your name mean? Some tags-answered

Now I found this, when searching on ,Aimee’sBlog and would love to hear if you think. I thought is was cool. I am going to look up my children and see what I think. Most of this is VERY accurate for me.

Except the CHILL part! LOL! Oh and the irresponsible , get into trouble part. I am definitely NOT irresponsible. Never have been. Otherwise its pretty dead on.

You are relaxed, chill, and very likely to go with the flow.
You are light hearted and accepting. You don’t get worked up easily.
Well adjusted and incredibly happy, many people wonder what your secret to life is.You are usually the best at everything … you strive for perfection.
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.
You have the classic “Type A” personality.You are a very lucky person. Things just always seem to go your way.
And because you’re so lucky, you don’t really have a lot of worries. You just hope for the best in life.
You’re sometimes a little guilty of being greedy. Spread your luck around a little to people who need it.You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You’re always up to something.
You have a ton of energy, and most people can’t handle you. You’re very intense.
You definitely are a handful, and you’re likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.
You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.

You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts.
You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals.

What’s Your Name’s Hidden Meaning?

I also want to thank Julie for nominating me for the “You cheer me up award!”

I also want to thank Linda who nominated me for the You Make my Day award! 

How sweet to think anyone would feel that way about me! I appreciate it.

I was also nominated by Dawn to list 7 random things about myself

Boy if I keep listing this stuff I will have NO secrets! LOL!

1) I never break a promise.

2) My house is CLEAN, but my closets look like a bomb went off in them. I always re-organize them, but they end up the same in 2 weeks! I have NO IDEA why!

3) I won’t watch the same movie or TV show twice! Can’t do it.

4) I always end up spilling Ketchup on myself any time I go out! I’m not a messy eatter, it just finds my lap! Strange. Yes I do use a napkin too.

5) I LOATHE cooking. I can cook very well, I just do not enjoy it-at all. I am the take out queen (if I had my way)

6) I HATE feet-It may be because when I was a practicing nurse, I had alot of people with NASTY foot issue’s.

7) I NEVER forget a face! EVER! I am bad with names-really bad! But if I met someone I may not remember their name but do know where I met/seen them.

Speaking of names-Sheryl tagged me this unique tag. I would LOVE for you to try this as well. I am not a tagger-and like to learn from my reader’s!

Here are the rules-

You must list one fact about you that starts with the letters in your middle name! If you dont have a middle name use your Maiden name/last name.

D-Dolores is my middle name and I HATE it. It was my father’s sister’s name and she was murdered by her husband. Mom-what were you thinking??!!!

O-is for OCD! I have just a touch of it when it comes to my house. I always clean daily. Things have to face a certain way, and I will notice immediately if they are moved. Just ask my husband. I think he plays with me sometime’s and moves them on purpose.

L-Liar. That word describes me after I have gone shopping and Jason asks me how much I spent. I always fudge the truth on that stuff! I will say there was a sale or something like that. Especially if its a stamp purchase or a Target trip! Otherwise I am honest-almost to a fault.

O-Over-protective. I am a bit over-protective when it comes to my kids. I will not let them play at other people’s house, if I dont know them REALLY well. I have thier friends come here. I watch too much 20/20! I fear something bad will happen to them. I know, it’s awful But it could be worse. I could NOT care.

R-Real Deal. What you see is what you get with me. I say what I mean, and mean what I say. I am not afraid to speak my mind. In case you haven’t noticed!

E-energy and excited. I am an excited person, with alot of energy. I love to share what I love, with everyone, and I talk like I type-non-stop! I can’t just NOT do anything. Like sitting around on the couch-unless Im dying, and really sick. I have to at least be cleaning or sketching or playing with the kids-anything, but do nothing.

S-SHOPPING! STAMPING!! My 2 favorite things-need I say more! LOL!

Well thanks for reading about me! I want to hear about you. Hope I wasn’t too boring!
