Happy Easter ......

Instead of a card, I decorated some bars of chocolate - the purple one is for my sister, Jackie  (see her own creation further down) and I added purple satin ribbon, white 12mm flat lace, mulberry roses and pretty blossoms - plus the usual magnolia swirl - sentiment is by Papertrey Ink stamped onto a blank coaster cut with a nestie. 

The yellow one was a gift for a friend who keeps her own hens and chicks.  I used 28mm cream cluny lace, yellow pretty blossoms and golden yellow Berisford satin ribbon.  The paper is by Pion and the tag is cut from Pion paper too

On Friday evening, my sister Jackie and I had a great time decorating egg boxes (I can remember when we used to decorate hard boiled eggs!) - Jackie (no blog, no email) made this fabulous creation and she used some narrow cream picot edge cotton lace, golden yellow Berisford satin ribbon and yellow pretty blossoms.  Her butterfly was cut with one of our new dies and she covered it in Stardust Stickles - the tag was stamped with cocoa brown ink using a Papertrey Ink stamp.    All the ribbon, lace and flowers are from The Ribbon Girl online store

Over at the Ribbon Girl blog you can find out who won the gingham ribbon give away and to celebrate Easter we are having another fabulous give consisting of the most beautiful collection of white and sparkling ribbons, mulberry flowers, diamante, buttons and clear crystal and pearl flourishes!! There is also more inspiration from the Design Team
