Friday Feature – Easter sets

Hello and welcome to another Friday Feature at AnnaBelle Stamps. This week the Belles are showcasing Easter sets – as Easter is fast approaching! Check out the Easter deal that Andrea has for this weekend only.


Today I have made some chocolate wrappers for my kids for Easter. Let me just say I originally intended to make 4…but the 4th chocolate went missing πŸ˜‰

Love you

*For the AnnaBelle Stamps Blog Hop see post below*

I am popping in REALLY quickly as it is late and I should be going to bed!

This is a mini card – about 7.5cm by 7.5cm. Very cute. We don’t tend to do Valentine’s Day in our household, so it didn’t go to my hubby – a friend of mine wanted it for hers! Ha! My hubby did make pancakes for the kids for breaky on Valentine’s Day and I asked for some love heart ones, and he did it!

Love you

I am entering this into a couple of challenges. CASology’s cue this week is Red and the Scrapbook Boutique is having a love challenge inspired by the following photo.

Week 31 - Red
