Happy Easter! and CFC 96

After a lovely and busy Friday, today I have been trying to get ready for Easter dinner. Two of my sons + their wives, the grandchildren, mother-in-law, sister-in-law- all coming for an egg hunt and dinner tomorrow.  I made a carrot cake and while it was baking, made these little carrots for the place favors.  They were cut on the Cricut @ 4" (Artiste cartridge) on Close To My Heart Dotty for You and Buttercup card stock. Tissue paper edged with pinking shears was tucked inside and then I filled them with jelly beans.  They look so cute in the little basket! 

I am thrilled that it is spring break - a whole week to catch up in house/yard/craft room.  The Pacific Northwest is warm and sunny, the cherry blossoms are blooming, daffodils and forsythia can been seen around the block.  Life is good.
This works for the CASual Friday Challenge 96: Funny Bunny- anything but a card.
