Easter is just around the corner!

Happy Spring everyone! Yesterday was sunny and warm here in the Pacific Northwest and I loved it! It's a little grayer today, but inside I'm stamping with bright, sunny colors for Easter. Jolee's first birthday is five days before Easter this year, and her middle name (Rachel) means "little lamb," so I'm thinking a springtime/lamb theme to celebrate.
In the meantime, however, I have a few Easter projects to share.

This uses one of my new favorite products, the Cotton White Staz-On Opaque ink pad. It stamps on almost any surface, and I was surprised at how quickly it dried on this cool clear box. A simple ribbon wrap and a cute circle punch completes this yummy treat box. I love the pretty colors peeking through... ok, I just love candy! I used almond M&M's because they are egg-shaped, and chocolate and almonds are one of my favorite candy combos, but you could use skittles, jelly beans, foil-wrapped chocolate eggs, anything! And I confess, I have been munching on the leftover candy for two days. Oh, I also used DeNami's Fun Fluff on the chickie :-). See, touch, taste!

Easter cards are such a great excuse to use lots of bright, yummy colors! I love the Brilliance ink pads - they are quick-drying, have lots of great colors, and match the DeNami papers perfectly! (Sorry my photo isn't so great, I'm still figuring out the best way to get my cards online.)
