Well, that's what I did today (no, not eat paste!). The Cutting Cafe has just come out with the most adorable new set called One Spring Day. 90 images! Some colored, some ready for you to print and color. I don't have all the new programs for my computer yet, (grrr..it's a conspiracy..new computer, have to buy all new stuff) so I couldn't transfer the images individually...no problem. I just printed out some of the fun colored images and then I cut and pasted. Pure fun, no stressing about coloring out of the lines. A little sponging on the background is all the ink I added by hand.
I popped the ladybug, kite and birdhouse on the right up on dimensionals, added the buttons and called it done. Super fun, super easy for when you need a quick card or you have little ones who just want to "cut and paste".

Here's a super easy recipe for One Spring Day...bursting with color, flavor and crunch this is almost a meal in itself yet not at all heavy. A nice light cornbread and grilled chicken paired perfectly with it. Thanks Paula Deen!
1 large bunch of broccoli (my bunches usually have 3 heads and I use them all)
6 - 8 slices of crisply cooked bacon, crumbled
1/2 cup roughly chopped red onion
1/2 raisins, optional but so good
4 ounces sharp Cheddar shredded in large shreds or cut into small chunks
1 c. real mayonnaise
2 T. white vinegar
1/4 c. sugar
1 cup halved grape tomatoes
handful of toasted walnuts (optional)
Trim off large leaves and tough stalks from the broccoli. Wash thoroughly. Cut flowerets and peeled stems into bite sized pieces. Place in a large bowl.
Add crumbled bacon, onion, raisins, and cheese. In a small bowl, combine maonnaise, vinegar and sugar. Stir well or use a whisk until well combined. Add to large bowl, toss. Add tomatoes, toss gently. Sprinkle with toasted walnuts, if desired. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Have an awesome Spring Day!
