12 Day of Easter – Day Eight

Do you send Easter cards?  I haven’t in the past, but with how simple some of these cards are to make, I’m thinking this would be a nice surprise for someone to receive.  Today’s card features the gorgeous color of Grapefruit Grove.  The pictures don’t do it justice!  It is sort of like Calypso Coral, but just more vibrant.  I absolutely love it!  It is one of the 5 “In Colors” and they are only around for 1 more year and then they will be retired.  In Colors only stay around for 2 years, which for the 2018 – 2020 In Colors, that won’t be long enough.
