Easter Bunny meets Easter Cow!!!

Hi all.

Firstly, I wanna wish all my readers all the very best for this Easter period. Here in Sydney we are having a mini Autumn heatwave (again) with temps hitting the high 20's to low 30's!!! (68F to 86F for those other than Celsius folk out there).

This year for the first time in a LONG time I am prepared for Easter. I do not buy my kids any eggs because by the time the grandparental bunny, The Aunty/Uncle Bunny and the Neighbour Bunny all make a gets a little ridiculous!!!! Sometimes to the point that we have Easter chocolate left over in September!!!

We have now 8 children in the villas around us ranging in age from 12-2. With this in mind....and so my 2 wee bunnies can drop their wee surprises off....I made these. They are made from the SU Mini Milk Carton Die (hence the Easter Cow reference!!!)

I had to take all the pics quickly as it was very hot in the sun and I did not want the contents to melt!!! Here it is close up at the front...and a small surprise at the back!!!!
The one thing that did surprise me a lot is HOW MUCH chocolate these wee containers hold!!! Check this out.....

I also could not forget the Mum's at dance class. We natter every Thursday whilst our daughters are upstairs learning. I was inspired by the magical tutorial by Julie Davison here. I did change hers up a little in that I used a "punch art" face as opposed to a hand drawn one....I cannot free hand well at all!!!! This is what they received.....
I did make the bunny too. It holds quite a few Smarties.
Here are their faces close up......
Sorry about some of the darker pics. Sometimes the shade was a better option!!!
Thanks for popping by and whatever your faith, belief or following, may the coming days provide with you fun, friends and laughter too.
