Had to get started on Easter cards and it is always easy to add dots.

Thanks El - you are so kind to comment and to say something so nice when doing so. I had fun with the challenge even though my hands are protesting everything I do today.

Thanks El for the sweet comment on my Spring Wishes card. And, that was a chalk board technique I had fun doing too.

Thanks for your lovely comment on my Trees card. That poem was learned by me and some of my sisters as well in grade school. So when I was going to make a masculine sympathy card I felt it fit very appropriately with this tree scene.

Thanks for the lovely comment on my Easter Garden. That quote was a new one for me too and I happened across it while surfing the net. It was the inspiration for my card design.

Hi El, Thanks so much for your lovely comment on my Silver Rose card.

Hi El, and thanks so much for your kind comments on my challenge cards!  Isn't this a great challenge?  By-the-way, a few weeks back I made a few birthday cards from one of Jennifer McGuire's videos.  Lo and behold, if I didn't see the same idea in your gallery!!  I really had to laugh out loud!  It's the one with the wonky corner panel.  I like it so much, I made 4 of them in one go.  Love the MISTI!!

Thanks El. I am glad you liked my quote card. That was fun!
