The Snow has melted- yipee!

We woke this morning to discover that the snow had vanished from our street! It has been replaced by a steady drizzle and much warmer temperatures. Much as we enjoyed the snow at first, we're now looking forward to Spring, and with this in mind, we've added these lovely new blank greeting cards that remind us of brighter days.
