Happy Easter Geoffrey!

Sorry the pictures but I had to take them quick before putting them in their decorated envelopes!  As you all know, I don't have a table to craft on at the moment, so I had to make these on my bed!  What do you think??

I spent many hours folding up the small ribbons and carefully putting them around the circle here.  For my first attempt I think they look OK.  The images are downloads, and I coloured them with my Promarkers.

I had some Nesties left in my little box so used them inside the circles of paper.  I cut them using my freebie scissors from a craft magazine a while back.  I wasn't sure how good they would be but they cut it OK and I managed to line them all up too.

Card candy and some gems and stickles made them more bling-tastic as they say!


PS. Promarkers - what do you do when they dry out?  I've had mine since Christmas and some of them have dried out already.  I honestly thought they'd last longer than this, but they haven't.  How long do yours last before drying out????

Hi Karen I can vouch for how lovely these are! We love the Hoppy Easter Bunny and Chick - thank you once again :) That ribbon folding is super! Will be interested in the Promarkers drying out responses as I've Googled like crazy and if you're doing all the right things am at a bit of a loss. Happy Easter once again! Di x
