A Basket of Easter Blessings

Hi friends.  We're in the midst of a glorious spring here in Florida. (Except for the pollen. lol)  I hope that spring will soon arrive in your area, if it hasn't already.  This Easter card is made with an adorable set called Gifts of Spring from Deedee's Digis.  The set is a terrific value at $2.50 for this darling image and three lovely sentiments.

Here's the inside of the card, which shows one of the sentiments from the set.

  • Lots of happy mail!!!
  • Listening to a Mockingbird sing while I sat on the porch swing with the dogs.
  • Special notes from my family and friends.
  • Some outside noise that was interrupting my sleep has stopped.
Have a wonderful day!!!

Inky hugs!
Shelly

This is super sweet, Shelly! I really like the blue and yellow together -- such a peaceful color combo. You added so many wonderful spring-like touches to this, too. Definitely makes me long for that season to hurry up and get here. :-)
