Hello Spring!

Hello.  Happy Spring!

I love gardening so I'm looking forward to the weather getting warmer so I can go out there and sow flower and vegetable seeds in my little community garden plot.

Here's a card I've created to celebrate spring.


This is also an easel card--one of my fave types of cards.
