Can you believe you just read "Easter" already??? Yes, the 2010 Occasions Mini Catalog will be arriving in mailboxes in another week or two. And yes, there are so many cute and lovely Easter ideas shown along with all the other holidays it has. But today I'm focusing on just Easter.
When I got my first look at the new Mini, I fell in love with a set called 'Abundant Hope'. The set has a beautiful line-art image, some very meaningful sentiments, and a tiny accent border piece. I must admit it was love at first site for me. I love watercoloring images and love, love, love pastels. So this was the first set I ordered, and the first set I played with too!! And while you're reading this today, my downline is probably making this card right now during our Shoebox Swap. he he
Isn't it just lovely?? Spring always means Easter to me and one of my favorite things at this time of year is all new flowers bursting out of the frozen ground and springing to life. (I know we're just getting into the beginnings of winter here, but I can always dream, can't I?) I've had daffodils growning along my fence for years, so this was the perfect reminder of spring.
