Easter treats

I know this post is waaaay out of season, but I thought I would show you my VERY last minute creation for the kids at Easter. My kids are older (14-22) and I decided I was tired of the Easter basket mess, and yet, they all still want Easter candy, so this is what I came up with. And when I say last minute I do mean last minute. I purchased the candy on Saturday and made the little bags Easter Sunday before everyone got up! Unfortunately my group picture is blurry, but they did look cute up there all lined up. And away from the dog too!
I printed the Happy Easter greetings on whisper white card stock,then stamped a background image on them from the SU Springtime Smile retired set. You have to look closely to see the stamped image. Then I layered it with pattern paper and cardstock. On the girl's tags I added a little squiggly border with black, fine-tip pen.
Sometimes I'm happiest with the stuff I do quickly. I tend to keep it clean and simple that way. Later this week I'll show you a couple of CAS (clean and simple) cards I made recently. I was happy to see that CAS is one of the new challenges at That might be a challenge I can participate in.

This was the neatest thing you did, Julie! Too bad I wasn't visiting on Easter this year! I did get a darling card from you today! Thanks so much! Now that Stephanie is swearing off chocolate, I guess these treats are off limits!
