On a roll!!

And another!! I seem to have the bug at the moment and have pushed the housework to oneside!! And what's more I am really enjoying it too. Onto todays card, this is for Charlotte for Easter. She adores elephants and her favourite colour is purple. Charlotte is not at all fussy and fancy, hence the plain and simple card! When I saw this image I just had to buy it. Can't you just imagine the amount of chocolate in this Easter Egg, oh yes please, perhaps I should send this to Cadburys, lol.
