Easter Treats and a Birthday Cake


No card to post just yet, i've been  really busy  with my grandaughter's birthday cake and finishing the Easter boxes for her to give to the children at the mums and tots group. She was leaving this week to start nursery after Easter. Thought you might like to have a look.
This is Timmy from one of her favourite programs. "He's a little lamb with a lot to learn" so his song goes.
He starts nursery and has lots of new experiences to deal with, just as Grace will. Don't you just wish you could be a fly on the wall!!!

My sister Jac and I made them really simple because they were for tots 25 in total!!
Just a basic milk carton, you can get a template Here
The bunnies are made from circles and ovals cut with nestabilities.
We did the faux stitching with a fine liner pen and coloured the faces with a copic marker.
I printed the greeting on the computer and punched it with the oval punch from Stamping Up.
The ribbon is from Whichcraftuk.

I didn't get to take her today as I spent a fabulous day with Jac's craft club. We went to Craftzone in Pontefract and met the lovely Wendy Stenton. There we made a gorgeous card and bought a lot of goodies.
Their shop is an Aladins cave of wonder I can highly recommend it.
Then on to the Bassetts sweet factory shop more goodies!!! finally ending up at the Junction 32 outlet.
A fabulous day, a big thank you to Jean mwah! for organising it.
Thanks for stopping by,
Love Cherie   //*.*\\
