Easter Treats - Part 2

I obviously spoke too soon yesterday. I awoke to rain but within the hour it had turned to snow and we had half an inch fall within an hour. Here's what it looked like from my front door! Very pretty but it was not nice to be out in it.

With George away and the kids old enough to look after themselves, I decided to spend the day in my craft room (except for a brief trip out for a spot of food shopping).

I managed to finish off my projects for Easter and then started on a totally unrelated one (samples for my next class).

Here are the Easter projects that I finished off. I am going to sneak one of them into my daughter's suitcase. She is off to South Africa later today to spend three weeks working at the Shamwari Game Reserve. The weight for her suitcase is limited to 23kg, which in theory should be sufficient but being a girl and wanting to take all the small electricals with her will mean that it is going to be a close run thing! Therefore, the smaller and lighter the Easter gift the better.

Here's a close up of one of them
As well as the treats I also made matching cards to go with each.

Apologies for all the shadows. The lack of natural light means I have all the house lights on and as a result, there are shadows everywhere.

Oops, I just realised that if I had finished this a little earlier that I could have taken part in the SU-Only Challenge. Oh well. Hopefully I can take part in the next one.
