Sweet Easter Treats


Did everyone have a good week? I was very excited today I sold my first two cards! What I found interesting is no one realizes until I tell them that I color the images. One woman this week said oh I thought it was a sticker; now I am impressed. This person surprised me because she is a graphic designer and she does a lot of artsy projects.

I did up some simple candy holders. They are little match books and you place a small bag of candy inside. I put a bag of Cadbury eggs in the purple one as a sample. The little holders make great table favors for the holidays or I made them for my son's wedding.

Here is what I used:
Mini Magnolia Stamps - egg, bumble bee, & bunny
Various Spellbinders
Copic Markers
Distress Ink
Various paper and ribbon from my stash

I am entering them in the Magnolia-Licious Highlites Challenge -SPRING theme!
