Mojo 341 - You're egg-stra special

Hi folks!

Happy Easter to those of you who celebrate!!! Just thought I would pop in and share a few cards this morning before we head down to have Easter dinner with dearly beloved's family.

Up first is --- an Easter card!



I know it has flowers on it but I'm giving it to dearly beloved anyway. So there. I probably could have swapped out the flowered paper for the polka-dotted paper in this pad but - oh well, it's Spring, it's Easter, he's getting flowers on his card!
