Spring is finally, finally in the air. It seems like over night the forsythia started to bloom and the cherry trees aren't far behind. I just hope it lasts. The weekend was a bit rainy and windy but I didn't mind. On Saturday afternoon I went to a card-making workshop and it was such a good time! I haven't had that much fun with scissors and paper since I was a little girl. I ended up with three lovely spring-themed cards to take home with me. Now I just have to decide who to send them to. They're almost too pretty to part with. Renee, who taught the workshop, also has an Etsy shop - Hopscotch Art. I think they're the perfect way to say Happy Spring!
