Penny Black Easter

This is my first time entering a Penny Black challenge, mainly due to the fact that I don't have any Penny Black images (you can see the difficulty lol) The gorgeous Jozza stamped some for me in an image swap so I am delighted to finally take part :o)

The challenge is to make a gift. I had the very (not) smart idea of making this years easter eggs............I made one and gave it up as a bad job and hotfooted it to Tesco and got all 8 Easter eggs in one hit!!! Next time I have an idea like that I will go and lie down and let the urge pass!

The one egg I did make I have filled with Mini eggs and is going to hubby :o) The paper is Dovecraft and the wee hedgie is coloured with promarkers. The egg is sitting on a ring of card and wrapped in cellophane I got from my local friendly florist :o)
