This year seems to be flying by, it seems as if we have only just had Christmas and the New Year and now Easter is only a week or two away. Not everyone sends Easter cards, although the giving of Easter Eggs is fairly widespread. I have been doing a little reading into why we give chocolate eggs at Easter. Apparently the church did not allow the consumption of eggs the week before Easter, so they were saved, decorated and then given to children on Easter Sunday. The Victorians gave cardboard eggs containing Easter gifts. With the development of chocolate, solid chocolate eggs were developed in Germany and Switzerland.
I make cards for close members of my family. Over the years I have collected quite a few 'Easter' themed images, however, I have bought a few new ones for this year, this is my first of them:
