Easter Cards

Happy Spring, everyone! It's official, the first day of spring was a week ago, March 20th. I confess, I am not fond of spring and summer. I can give you many reasons why, but I will not bore you with those. How about I give you the top 3? So here it goes: 1) My allergies flare up severely around this time of the year and nothing seems to ever help. 2) My monthly electric bill during the summer cost as much as an in-season Cole Haan purse due to the non-stop use of the A/C. 3) The heat usually brings out people who dress-up inappropriately - and I don't like having to see too much skin. I love fall and winter when people are too cold so they cover themselves up with turtle necks, sweaters, hats, scarves, shawls, gloves, boots and tights. Hahaha! I am pretty relieved that it has been raining, thus postponing the heat to arrive. I know, I know, I am living in the wrong place.Oh well.

I would like to share the Easter cards we made in class two weeks ago. We did a lot of coloring with the Aqua Painters and Classic Stampin' pads.
