Something old!

As it has been such a busy few weeks, I have not had much time to just sit and craft- so I am cheating by adding a photo of these little bears I made last year as  "thank you" gifts for my daughters birthday party.  It is her birthday today- so this is what reminded me of them!

Little projects.....

 I have been playing with my copics during my spare time and have made this little card made to with a small pocket inside to hold a store gift card...  I love ALL things Japanese and found this lovely Cherry Blossom stamp at a local craft store.
A lovely little stamp I recently purchased from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps on line. "Shy Emmylou" is very sweet and although I have a soft spot for the gorgeous Magnolia stamps - I think that this range is just as lovely and lots of fun to colour. I turned this into a small gift tag to attched to an Easter treat for a precious little girls first Easter.

Easter Craft...

Cutting out all the bits for our Easter craft project..
Putting all the pieces together...
Adding the chocolate..yummy!!

All finished and wrapped!

This year my daughter and I made Easter baskets to hold the little chocolate treats for our extended family, although simple in their design- I was happy with how they turned out and they were lots of fun to make!!

More boy cards

I decided to make use of the papers and stamp I purchased to make my sons card to put together a couple of smaller cards for later use.  I have made the best of my small selection of copic markers to attemt to give a little depth but I really need to purchase some more to do this well, particularly with regard to the hair.
