Happy Easter

Hello and a very Happy Easter. Hope you've had a fantastic and relaxing weekend with lots of chocolate thrown in too! I've been visiting friends and family here there and everywhere and making lots of these little Easter baskets courtesy of the fab MonicaThese baskets are really easy to make and hold quite a few mini eggs (the remaining ones that weren't eaten!) as well as a Lindt Choc bunny and a cream egg! They were quite heavy by the end!
I can't stop using the SU 'Forest Friends' set and it's been really handy for Easter cards. I've also used the Washington Apple designer series papers with some Pumpkin Pie, Real Red and Chocolate Chip. Thanks so much for looking xxx

Fab weekend!

Morning and hope you all had a lovely weekend. The weather has just been gorgeous here and I started my spring cleaning and sorting out the garden. I Just wanted to share this first pic of our very early morning visitors. For the last couple of days these two have been at my back door waiting for breakfast! They were here last year at about the same time and I couldn't believe it when I heard the familiar quacking last Friday! They waddle off as soon as I open the door with their tray of food and then as soon as I turn they come running back!!!
I've been having loads of fun with my new SU goodies and I love the 'Forest Friends' set along with the 'Tea Party' DSP. Here's the first made with 'Forest Friends' set. The little bird comes from 'Wild About You'. The colours are Old Olive, Ruby Red, Choc Chip and some Whisper White. The leaves have been coloured using my markers with Cameo Coral, Pretty in Pink, and Old Olive. I've added some Choc Chip Taffeta Ribbon, and a Choc Chip designer button from the mini catalogue.For the next one I've also used the tree from 'Forest Friends' stamped with Bashful Blue. Coloured the leaves with So Saffron, Pretty in Pink and Bashful Blue. The card base is Pretty in Pink and the Scallop base made with the Scallop Edge Punch is Bashful Blue. The flowers were from the 'Wild about you' set. Finally added a sentiment from 'Cheer & Wishes' and then some Stripy So Saffron grosgrain ribbon from the mini catalogue. Thanks so much for looking xxx
