Eggcellent Easter and Thanks

Hi everyone, just a quick post today, as I promised myself some craft time, although I will need to tidy up first to make room to craft!

Firstly I would like to thank everyone for the lovely birthday wishes, all though the day is not yet over; I started it with "cake"  of sort, I made pancakes...or as some would say Crepes with lashings of lemon juice and sugar - yum.  I intend to carry on the cake theme later with some little chocolate ones that my daughter and I made last night.

Now to share some little Easter boxes that I made and filled with Mini eggs for my not so little children young adults.

Easter Treat Boxes

I used Penny Black's transparent set Garden Critters 30-152 for the little standup bunnies, which were stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink and coloured with Tim Holtz Distress Marker pens and cut out.  The sentiment was stamped onto Labels Twenty Five S5-077 using the transparent set Chick to Chick 30-150.  The box was made using Spellbinders Grand Squares LF-126 and the overlay using Adorning Squares S4-389 with was folded up at the corners to give a different look to the edges. I finished of the box lids with some tiny punched flowers.
Here is a closer look at each box.

I hope you and your family had a good Easter Weekend and hope you are able to drop by my blog again on Wednesday, when I have some exciting news to share and a video too!

Hugs Cathy

Happy Belated Birthday. Love the way you accented the boxes with those tiny daisies & picked out the colour of the respective box base & bunny image colouring.
