Blessed Easter

I've joined a group of swappers on SCS and this is my first month to participate. They make cards every month... and each person gets one of them. There are at least two reasons I wanted to join this group.

#1 - My friend Barb has been swapping with them for a while and says they are a great group of talented women. (THANK YOU for pointing me in the direction of this group, Barb!)

#2 - One of the swap requirements is that you there has to be a coordinating envelope, too. That's something I never think to do and I think this group will stretch me. (After all, I used to never decorate the inside of my cards and now I do, so maybe this will get me started decorating the envelopes, too.)

Here's my first card/envelope:
(I sure hope it's good enough)

I love this Stampin' UP! stamp - Blessed Easter

This is beautiful, Jeanette. Everyone will just love it, I know that without a doubt. You will be quite popular among your fellow swappers with masterpieces like that!
