Spring has sprung in our little town!

Just a few quick cards today, we are clearly having our spring. One of our climbing rose bushes has leaves coming out on it and our orchard trees are starting to show signs of life. We were very concerned because when we bought our place here in August it had been empty since last January and the grass was dry and weeds were growing everywhere. But worst of all many of the trees looked like they wouldn't make it. We have approx. 75 trees and none of them are less than 10 - 12 ft. tall. Needless to say we are very excited to see them budded out and living. Trees evidently will save themselves by shutting themselves down. Our grass however is not looking as promising. So we have some work ahead of us...
Anyway these cards were made for the local Senior Center, they sell them to the locals since our town is so very small and has no where else to purchase them. I joined in with 4 other ladies yesterday (finally getting out of the house and meeting people) and I had a wonderful time. They meet every week for 2 to 3 hrs to make cards. We chat so much we don't get lots done, that is why I chose to work on them at home.
Here is a Birthday card.

Here are some of the Mother's Day Cards.

Have a spectacular weekend and thanks for stopping by!
