Control Freaks Spring / Easter Blog Tour

Hello and welcome to our March Tour de Freaks!  Glad you could stop by and visit.  You may have come from Cindy Elam's blog.  She does such a wonderful job.  Hope you are enjoying our Tour.

Spring is almost here.  It's fun to stamp and daydream about spring.  My first card has lots of textures.  I wanted to play with our new Fringe Scissors so used them to make the grass.  Next I cut 1/4" strips of card stock and weaved an Easter carry my eggs.  
Oh, Easter Chick came to visit.
