Easter cards.

Here's the thing--I like these fine last night, but
today . . . they make me cringe a little. They're
okay, but definitely NOT going to be everyone's
cuppa tea. The challenge was for these to be cards,
Easter themed, use pastels, and have some stamping.



The thing is, they're for a swap, so I'm hoping my
swap partners, whomever they may be, don't open their
package and say:

"Well, isn't this one interesting."

That is my mom's polite code, used occasionally at
art fairs, galleries, etc., for "I don't really
like this, but someone else must, so I won't say
anything negative."

My mom is really nice. I like that about her!

I like them too! Especially like the use of the hymnal page and the words "It's not about the bunny."

"Well, isn't this one interesting." made me laugh!! I really must remember that one.

Your cards are perfect - you did exactly what was requested, and I agree with BeBe, I like the "It's not about the bunny." sentiment.

Your swap partners will be delighted.

My MIL says "clever"...haha...as in "Isn't that a clever way to use paint and a bowling ball?"

I think these cards are sweet...certainly way more interesting than store bought cards...and too clever to use the word clever :)

I love the sheet music and the bunnies together!
