  12. Sandra I have been 'hanging' to see your creation finished. It is just beautiful. Aren't they so easy and enjoyable to make. I do love the Easter eggs at the back. I made 10 of these for the nursing home for their Easter raffle and put square packed Easter chocolates in the front one...but I like what you did. Love this one and it was worth the wait. [I have a cameo cut so it cuts in seconds for me so it is easy peasy.] xxx
