April Cards

So in the month of April there are a lot of events that need cards such as Easter and then there are 3 birthdays in the family. I've been trying to work on them slowly but I think I'm working a little too slow, ha. I've got two of the birthday cards made. One is for my mil and the other is for my sil. I still have to make one for my niece and then I need to make 6 Easter cards. I've also signed up for a few swaps. I need to make 10 ATCs, 3 swivel clasp charms, 2 sets of 5 dress forms and then glam up the set of 5 dress forms that I'd already made. I also have to do a layout for a friend, start thinking about Mother's Day cards, and then my brother's birthdays and my dad and another niece's birthday. There's going to be a lot of card making in the near future. Plus, I have a ton of school work. I had thought that tonight I would be good and do school work when I got home. Then when I was at work I decided I really needed to get some of my crafting stuff completed. So what have I done since I've been home, nothing related to those two things. I've managed to make dinner and then waste time on web. I made myself get off a little bit ago and then I went on a search for my ATCs that I'd started and along the way figured out that I could keep my La Blanche stamps in the photo organizer that I picked up on Sat. It was 50% off plus I had a coupon for $5 off of $25. I'd been looking at the organizer for a while. I also found the set of Spellbinder dies that I had misplaced, remember the large circles that should be in my binder well I found them, yeah!

Here are my cards, the first one is a sketch from the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club
