Easter Treats for Jems March Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Jems Team Blog Hop from Amanda Bates at The Craft Spa...

Officially the theme is anything for Spring or Easter... but for me it had to be something for a treat with chocolate in! Caramel chocolate of course! Though any of the small easter egg treats would fit...

And a re-visit of a Craft Spa Scalloped Tag Topper Punch classic for you... just click here for the Tutorial... for Charlie Chick! (as the lovely Doreen nicknamed him)
With a very simple update for 2018... as somewhat unusually... everything is still current for my little Easter treat project... apart from the Wide Oval Punch... though we now have the Layering Ovals or Stitched Shapes dies to do the same job...

So just an update to the greeting really... Crushed Curry HAPPY from Perennial Birthday... plus Pumpkin Pie EASTER from Teeny Tiny Sentiments (aka Teeny Tiny Wishes for those of you in the US) ... both partial simply marker inked as required...

And of course... containing a Caramel Egg instead of a Creme Egg... so DS will be happy!

And I have to laugh... as it is amazing how many characters Charlie Chick takes on depending on the angle of the camera lens... particularly as I am looking at about 15 photos...

Some look more feminine... some more masculine... some more cheeky... some more aloof...

Kind of like an e-Moji on chocolate ... Reckon I will now call him e-Chicki!! Now there would be an idea if only I had more hours in the day!!
And now it is time to say Happy Easter & Goodbye from me... and Hello & Springtime Welcome to the lovely Uma... just click on the arrow below to go straight to her Springtime post...
