Some of the Contents

Happy Easter Monday dear friends ~

We're back from our little beach break away! What fun we had...swimming in the ocean, walks to the lake with the dog, jet skiing at Callala Bay, dinner with friends and the highlight for me...visiting the fabulous little spot that is Jindyandy. Oh my goodness there are some terrific finds...antique furniture, toys, a lolly shop and best of all...a huge well stocked craft store. I spent several hours there over the course of two days and managed to pick up a few new bits and pieces.

I did promise I'd show you the contents of my little gift package posted here. I made six cards in all, three birthday and three thanks. I'll come back tomorrow to show you the thank you cards.

Basic Black

Rich Razzleberry

Old Olive

As you can see the cards are all the same but for the colour. Base is Black, Vanilla and Crumb Cake mats popped up with Dimensionals and the wide Striped Grosgrain Ribbon threaded behind. I've layered up the flower from Creative Elements and topped each with a pearl (hard to see in these pics) and a little spritz of Champagne Shimmer Mist. The insides were finished with a Vanilla mat and the flower image.

I hope you've all had a wonderful long weekend and indulged in plenty of sweet treats. It's the only time of the year we can really get away with a chocolate breakfast, and we did just that! Such fun.

Back tomorrow!
