My Easter cards and other creations

Happy Easter to all.  Hope you haven't eaten too many eggs.....I just thought I'd share my creations for this Easter... not just cards in this post, I've also tried my hand at a few other projects.

The first item is a card using Elzybells Chick Trio stamp coloured with copics.
The DP's are from the Me to You Easter paper pack.



The second card is using the Digistamp Boutique image Easter Treat Bunny coloured with copics.
Just a quick clean card which is unusual for me.  Only one sheet of patterned paper and not many embellishments.  The DP is from the Me to You Easter paper pack.



Now onto Easter gifts.  These jars are filled with Cadbury's Mini Eggs and have been decorated with Digistamp Boutique images 'Daffodil Chicklet' and 'Easter Balloon Chicklet' coloured with copics.

I thought the jars were a bargain......They're from Ikea and only cost £1.90 for four jars and they each hold about a pack and a half of mini eggs (the 100g pack)...




Next item is Chupa Chups bunny lollys and these were inspired from a post over on Pinterest.  They're made from  Chupa Chups lollipops, wooden beads painted with white acrylic paint, heart diecut funky foam for the feet, pom poms for the face and tail, white pipe cleaner ears and googly eyes.......Easter Bunnies




The last item is an Easter treat bag I made for my niece Holly.
It's a drawstring bag with lining and it's made from white felt and pink patterned cotton.
I didn't follow a pattern and it was loosely inspired by the sleepy bunny goody bag over on Pinterest but I knew that in my bag I wanted so I adapted the idea to a drawstring bag so that it suited my needs.   Luckily I managed to make it just about big enough to hold three packets of Cadbury's buttons and four Peppa Pig chocolate bars.







My Easter window...


Now I'm off to get comfy on the sofa and watch Endeavour.

Thanks for stopping by.
