We welcome in Spring with green grass, budding flowers and sunshine, and as she starts to show her beautiful colors we’re reminded that we are only weeks away from Easter. Easter is a great time to celebrate the season by staying connected to friends and family. Choosing the perfect Easter card can be fun, but it’s always important to keep your recipient in mind first. Are you looking for a religious Easter card or a funny Easter card? Are you sending a card to a child or your grandparent? These are important questions to iron out before you start your search – and once you pair the right card with the right recipient, what do you say inside? It’s always fun to include Easter sayings or quotes that everyone will love. It can be tricky to find the right words so we have a few suggestions ready to get you started…
– My Easter basket is filled with thoughts of you
– Hippity Hoppity, Easter’s on its way!
– Wishing you a basket full of blessings
– You are some bunny special – Happy Easter!
– Hoppy Easter!
– [Grandma Ruth], you always make Easter extra sweet!
– Can’t wait for you to help me find my Easter basket, [Uncle Frank]!
– For I remember it is Easter morn, And life and love and peace are all new born. _ Alice Freeman Palmer
– I lied on my Weight Watchers list. I put down that I had 3 eggs… but they were Cadbury chocolate eggs. _ Caroline Rhea
– All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt! _ Lucy Van Pelt, “Peanuts”

Love your mom like crazy? We do, too! That’s why we’re psyched to give you a chance to shock the cardigan right off your Mom or mama-figure by popping out of a giant card at her house on Mother’s Day!
All you need to do is submit a 2-minute video (or a photo along with 250-word essay) demonstrating how your mom would react to seeing you on her doorstep on her big day.
(Hint, hint… we think it would be really fun if you were to dress up as mom, sound like her, and show us why you think her reaction would be the bees-knees.)
The Grand Prize winner will receive a trip to surprise their Mom or mama-figure on May 9-14, 2012. See the Official Contest Rules for full details and lots of big words.
Oh, and Mama won’t wait! Contest entry period ends April 13, 2012!
