Hopping by with some Easter Greetings

Hello everyone and Happy Easter. We are heading off to Southampton for a Daisy and Co Day. The weather flipped completely from what a glorious day that was. It's now gale force winds and rain. Hopefully we can get out for a walk and exercise off some of the chocolate between the rain showers. My son and his GF are joining us too....a perfect family Easter day.

Talking of chocolate these little ones made it into Easter bags for my big babies.

 I made some quick tags as I ran out of crafting time what with making my daughter's 30th birthday cake etc recently.

 Daisy still doesn't eat chocolate (she doesn't like it...but I am sure she will soon) so I bought her some new clothes and a little Easter craft book. Like her Nanna she is a real make and do girl.

I have not share a cutie card from me for a while so I thought today was the day to put this right.  I still love LOTV and I had a pre printed image of theirs which I used for an Easter card for my darling daughter and SIL.

I still love ahhhh cards, don't you?

The chicks are Cheery Lynn, I coloured them with distress inks.  The eggs are Memory box. The paper is from my ancient stash and the sentiment is also LOTV.

I would like to enter my tags into the following challenges;
Creative Corner 1/3 anything but a card
