spring, Easter, cards, bunnies, vintage

I am involved in a lovely card swap each month hosted by Fran Kawakami. You can visit her blog, which is wonderful at

Anyway, the colors scheme, which is always optional, is purple and yellow. So, I took one of the vintage cards from last week's class with Donna Sledzik at Inspiration Station in Stafford Springs, CT, and did it up in purple and yellow. However, I am now thinking it is too Easter and will most likely work on another card. I have a week to send it out so will be on time even though it is going to Canada.

I feel quite claustrophobic every day. The guys in our Weatherization Assistance Program hung this window for me one day to make me feel better. I do work with some very wonderful people.
