Spring Fling!


Are you ready for Spring? Have you noticed all the Spring and Easter goodies appearing already in stores? Is it just me, or do stores get ready for these holidays earlier and earlier each year?
Here's an accordian card I made with another new TCP set coming out next Friday (2/27)...the set is called "Spring Fling" - check out Poochie in his carrot car, and Sprinkle wearing her Easter bonnet!
Our chili cookoff was a great success! We ended up with 16 types of chili! Everyone on our committee pitched in and did their bit, and it all came together really well. I didn't cook because I was one of the organizers, but everyone had a blast! The teachers who won were thrilled with their gift cards, and everyone who attended had a really fun time. We don't have the exact figure yet, but our door people estimated that we made over $500 for the playground fund!

Oh, Toners, what a great card!!!! I LOVE it! And ou are right; the stores seem to re-stock shelves for the next holiday the minute the previous one has ended.

A BIG "WOW" sent your way, this is a FUN and BEAUTIFULLY put together card! I love how you used many TCP stamps to give us an idea of how great they are (must get! :)) Sprinkle with the bonet is my favorite~ :) thanks for the peek!
