Easter Tag Swap!

Hi everyone, Happy Easter!
I participated in the Easter Tag Swap 
Hosted by Sandy at 521 Lake Street
It was a lot of fun and I met a new bloggy sister too! My swap partner was Ros, from Ros Wistful. Would you look at all the wonderful treats she sent my way!

The tag she made is absolutely gorgeous.
Look at the layers and layers of detail! 
 Then there was this tag wrapped with lots of extra scrumptious trim and these sweet ME cupcake wrappers.
 Ros also sent a stack of really cool vintage ephemera! Love these old pages!
Thank you Ros for everything, it's been fun getting to know you and thank you Sandy for hosting this fun swap! I'd say you did pretty darn good for your first time! 
I also wanted to share a picture of this sweet creation!
I was blessed to be the winner of Viv's give-away and she sent me this precious little chick!

Isn't she a cutie! Can you believe she makes these!

And a few more pics to share! First, let me say a HUGE thank you to everyone who said a prayer for Little Hippy. She is recuperating amazingly fast and today I took her to have her stitches removed and finally remove the Cone of Shame (a little "UP" humor, har, har). Here's a pic of her when I brought her home from her surgery.

She has to stay on her leash when we go for walks for a few more days and we will be finished with all of her Meds by then too. We are still waiting on the pathology reports but saying my prayers for good news soon. Oh, one little unexpected side effect, she is having another false pregnancy, hopefully her last! Here she is getting ready to nurse one of her pups. 

It's a rubber chicken but don't try and tell her that!, LOL! 
 I wish each of you a happy, safe Easter filled with more blessings than your home can hold! xxoo Nan
