Cards - Easter & Spring

Easter Blessings

Here's three Easter cards to share.   My cards use new and old stamping products.   I keep reusing the holiday stamps I have treasured in the past.   The message doesn't change, only the materials used.   The Stampin' Up! stamp set Suite Sayings (#140712 $21) in the 2016 Spring Occasions catalog, has an Easter expression which I will be using for many years.
