With Easter falling in March (by the skin of its teeth), It looks like April is going to be a chance for us to not be quite as pressured by stamping projects.

Sure! We have Mother's Day to consider working on, but that's usual for April, right?

Anyhoo... What plans do you have stampingwise for April?

My Mosaic challenge runs 'till 4/22, but I have my project done for that so I'm 'safe' with that.

Got my swapmate for the May tag swap. That will definitely eat up some of my April days.

And I also have Beady's Medal swap to do this month.

Even with those 2 swaps, I figure I have room to play a bit if another challenge catches my eye.

I have a challenge in mind I'd really like to try and host this month. I want to do a sample card first though for an example. Other than that
1) mosaic challenge, 2) LickeyAn's photo challenge 3) Beady's medal swap
4) May Tag. That should keep me more than busy this month!

I'm really glad March is over! I hope to have more time in April for crafting!

1) Mosaic Challenge
2) Tag Swap
3) Medal challenge
4) I had planned to set up a sketch challenge this month. I like these because they are usually easily combined with other challenges or for making needed cards (such as Mother's Day this month).

I will be working on my design team cards. I haven't gotten my stamps yet, so hope they get here soon so I can get started!

I have one card to make for a swap on another board. I will make a tag for Tim Holtz's tag challenge and I hope I can do a challenge here on this board too.

My April 'dance card' is filling up rapidly!

I'm adding Willy's 'other board' challenge & Marshia's photo inspiration to my list.

My plan for April stamping is to get a head start on my Christmas cards! I'm hosting the Christmas All Year challenge, but I didn't get any done last month.

Today I made my "grand dog" a birthday card. He turns 1 tomorrow and my daughter is so smitten with him she plans to get him some sort of doggy birthday cake and take him to the dog beach. Lucky little puppy!
