Sweet as Sugar!!

Over on Sugar-bowl-challenge the theme this week is to make something for spring or Easter. I have dedecided to make some Easter gifts for the girls to give their friends.

Over on Split-coast-stampers I found a great tutorial from Susie McCormick. For these little gift boxes. I thought I would dig deep into my stamp folders and pull out some of the older sugar nellies and adapt them for easter. They all have an easter egg either behind them or in their hands. I couldn't resist palying alittle bit more with the present and made an egg come out of the box when you pull the lid.

Thank you for dropping by I love to read your comments

Materials used:

Stamps: All Sugar nellies.

Papers various scraps.

Starting from left boxes 1,4 and 5 images coloured with copics.

2,3 images are coloured with inkadinks from imagination crafts
