Sunshine, Easter and pppssttt!

After the quite unusual snow we had 9 days ago, we are now enjoying wonderful springtime weather. I see many yards full of crazy blooming wildflowers and dandelions and know that it would be long before we smell fresh cut grass on every corner. Can you imagine it??

I know I'm jumping ahead, but since I have NO Easter cards made, how about a summer card?






I used Jenni Bowlin Homespun mini-papers pack for this (I just love mini-paper packs!), an older Melissa Frances vintage label, Piggy Tales chipboard, Adorn-it alphas and Prima flowers.

And I may not have an Easter card, but I do have an Easter page. This is from an egg hunt my little one had a school last year.





I used JilliBean Soup papers and corrugated alphas (YUM) that I sprayed with Glimmer Mist. The green alphas are American Crafts, Prima Flowers and SEI Stickers.

And one more PPPSSSTTT - that I should have mentioned sooner. There is a giveaway over at CupCardsToGo! that ends TODAY! CupCardToGo will reopen in June. Bookmark the site (save it to your google reader), and get on over there NOW and leave a comment on the give-away post.
