Loving my Casual Fridays Stamps!

Hi all! *wave*
I'm so excited that Spring is almost here (theoretically) in upstate NY. The snow is melting and my driveway is a muddy mess, but I'm delighted:) Hunting for Easter eggs in the snow is not so bad (we do it every year) but I want this snow GONE!

I pulled out some CFS sets that help me feel Spring-like and created this card. Orange is my all time favorite color, and of course green is a must.

Stamps used:

What signs of Spring do you look forward to the most? Birds, flowers, rain?

I love that asparagus prices drop because its in season! *chuckle*  We eat a lot of green vegetables in my house and asparagus is one of my boys' favorites. 
I always serve it for Easter.
So what do vegetarians eat on Holidays?
Grilled fresh pineapple, Roasted asparagus, Seitan Ham with pineapple dijon sauce, Corn spoonbread with chives, Ginger glazed carrots, Smashed red skinned potatoes with herbs...And for dessert?
Triple Lemon Cheesecake with my own vegan lemon curd on top:)

Two Favorite photos from our celebration this year:

Thanks for stopping by today,

I totally agree with you about the asparagus prices, we love it here too. (Well, 4 of the 5 of us anyway.) Have you ever had fiddleheads? They'll be available soon (and they're very like asparagus, at least imo).

Your boys look like they had lots of fun.

Wonderful card!

LOVE the fresh vibrant colors Dana and the stamps are pretty great! Your Easter dinner looks delish. We're huge roasted asparagus fans too. Our son recently cut wheat from his diet on docs advice. He's texting me & sending pics of all his roasted vegis! That's my boy ;) I'm swooning over the tire swing in your picture...I just love a good swing LOL!!!

Great card, sweet family photos, and yummy food. Loved this post!! Your plate full of vegetarian yummies looks so festive for Easter!! Looks like you had a fabulous day :)

I was drooling over your yummy plate of food, and just had to follow the recipe links you gave. I pinned the spoonbread recipe and was so surprised when I followed the link to your carrot recipe that this Alton Brown recipe is the one that *I* use--weekly!! This is my family's favorite way to eat carrots now. SOOOOO yummy! We fix it all the time. I always keep ginger ale on hand specifically for these carrots ;).

What a beautiful card! I love the colors! And asparagus is our favorite too. We were camping this past week. Went south to find spring but came home to Wisconsin today and snow! But I have some new DeNami stamps to play with, so that is at least some fun to look forward to!
