Easter Wishes

Good Sunday morning all!  I thought I would show a slightly different way to use the Easter Basket.  I cut the Easter Basket out of Chestnut Brown card and wove the extra pieces through the basket slats and cut off the handle.  I added a purple bow to the basket from the Easter Basket die set.  Using the Easter Eggs & Flowers die set, I cut the flowers out of five colours.  I added them to the stems and leaves cut in green.  I arranged the flowers then added the Basket to the card.  I matted it with purple card then added it to a larger piece of white card.  I cut the Easter Wishes sentiment in purple then added the sentiment to a white shadow backing piece and attached it above the basket.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  7 1/4"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY to all my UK Particrafters I hope you have a special day, to our friends without our mum's, it's a difficult day for some so my heart goes out to you today xxx
I'm loving today's inspirational delicate basket of happiness it's really pretty and so easy to do in block with just a change and mix of colours and flowers (which I'd love ALL of them) like Trish, I dare say lol.
So thank you for sharing Sue, it's always lovely to see what your minds eye sees with the dies you design.
I missed James yesterday due to having my own demonstrator lol she had her first use of my 'mangle' and made 2 poppy flowers lol what have I started, I know I had 50 flowers cut on my table ready to use on an Easter card, I think our 7 year old Lottie has added them to her own craft stash 🤣
So love to all that visit today and hugs to you all xxx

A fabulous card Sue, the basket die is just perfect for the flowers, I love it.

Happy Mothers Day to all the Mums out there. This is my first Mothers Day without my Mum, but I can’t be too sad as when she died last summer she was just a few weeks short of her 103rd birthday. Today I will be spending time with my two daughters who are taking me out for lunch

Hi Sue, Happy Mothering Sunday to you and all the mums out there, hope you have a lovely day.
I love today's card especially as I have made something similar but using your flower pot die instead. The colours you have used make such pretty flowers.

Crafty Vonnie - enjoy your new dies, what a thoughtful present.

Happy Mothering Sunday to you all out there in the UK
Have been catching up on all of the lovely cards Sue
after being first away for our anniversary and then
coming home back full of cold and been coughing every
day since. Getting a bit better but very fed up now
and no crafting for weeks. Sending well wishes to any-
one in the same boat. Take care x
