Easter Egg-Stravaganza

Last Saturday I enjoyed a super day demonstrating at Card-io in Wigan and the day was themed with lots of fun and ideas for Easter decorations, cards and gifts. 
Here's an acetate card featuring Wendy's favourite rabbit stamp from her Easter range.
It was lovely to see everyone especially Tilly (WOYWW) pictured here... 
Me, Wendy, and Tilly 
Tilly only intended to pop in for a quick visit and ended up staying all afternoon with her friend Sue.
I made lots of mini baskets and containers to hold mini chocolate eggs.
some were made from the background techniques that I demonstrated and some made from printed papers.
These cones will hold mini eggs or the larger Cream Eggs

All the little offcuts of decorated background papers were handy to punch or die cut co-ordinating flowers just like these on the cone below.
As I made the items I gave them to the customers with a few mini eggs inside and I was so thrilled to have over £53 pounds donated to help CHICS (cancer support group). Everyone was so lovely and friendly and really seemed to enjoy themselves. 
A big thanks so much to all who came and made it a such a super day.

There are quite a few more items from my samples from the day to post over the next few days so please call in again so you don't miss any ideas.
