For this card I busted out my brand new Unity stamps! (Yes, Emily, I finally caved thanks to you!) The butterfly and the leopard print background are from the March Kit of the Month. Love that leopard print! I have a feeling it will be making many more appearances on my cards. Can't wait to dig in to the rest of the Unity stamps. I also won 5 Hero Arts stamps from Moxie Fab and they arrived this week too. Whoo hoo! It's felt like my birthday every time I've gone to the post office! :)

I am so looking forward to the long weekend starting tomorrow! In Bermuda, Good Friday is a public holiday and it's traditional to eat codfish cakes and hot cross buns and to fly kites. The kite-flying apparently stemmed from a Sunday School teacher trying to explain Christ's ascension to Heaven to his class - he finally launched a kite with the likeness of Christ on it to illustrate the point. Not only do we fly kites but we make our own traditional Bermuda kites out of wood, string and tissue paper. The photo below shows the traditional hexagonal design but there are always plenty of other shapes and designs to be found. It's quite a sight to see on Good Friday when there hundreds of kites in the air all over the island.
(And no, I did not get around to making a kite this year. Shame on me!)
