This has been a lovely day. We had a wonderful Easter dinner which my husband was nice enough to prepare. Then my friend, April, picked me up and we visited another friend, Kim, whose mother just had surgery. She came to visit Kim for Easter and ended up falling and breaking her hip. They released her from the hospital yesterday so we stopped by to check how it was going and deliver a few little goodies to cheer them up. I am glad to share that they are both doing fantastic for the situation.
I decided to complete one more fun little Easter project for my daughter. This is a really cute basket I made from one piece of 12” x 12” cardstock. Friday my friend, Cheryl, came to visit from North Carolina and shared how to make a lovely gift bag from two 12” x 12” pieces of double sided cardstock and a Scor-Pal. I revamped the measurements to make it smaller. I used I Need/Sweet Threads from Basic Grey for the basket. The light pink lace just below the ribbon and on the basket handle is cut using the Dancing Doily Lace Border die from CheeryLynn Designs. The swirly vines and leaves are cut from Basic Grey Sublime Vintage using Fanciful Flourish, also from Cheery Lynn Designs. The flower is another one I made awhile back, using punches.
I am sure you noticed the unique eggs. The one in front of the basket was a gift from another friend named Kim, when she was kind enough to invite me to be part of a great weekend at Scrapbook Creations. She teaches classes there and teaches how to make these eggs, using alcohol inks.
When Cheryl and I were playing with friends on Friday, we all decided to try these. The eggs in the basket are mine, but their coloring didn’t come out quite as unique as Kim’s egg. Guess I will have to take her class.
Hope you had a wonderful Easter.
