Jelly Bellys

Good morning all, I am back!!  I have been on a little hiatus...hubby had a lot of doctor appointments and hospital stays. to keep me busy and when not taking care of him been babysitting, and of course housework.  But, I did manage to craft a little here and there, so happy for that.  With Valentines day come and gone, and Easter around the corner, I decided to make a few Easter treats to share as well as sell.   For these I used a few of the KaDoodle Bug Designs files listed below
Scales and Cotton Tales

Cute Little Bunnies

Eggie Buddies~Carrot Bunny

Shabby Winter Birds

I used mostly Close to my Heart cardstock, I love the colors.

I had some treat cups from Close to my Heart and punched the holes in the die cuts to add it and added Jelly beans and then a circle punch to cover the back of the cups.
I had such fun creating these , hope I inspired you to create some too.
Have a crafty day... Cathy
