Here comes the Easter Bunny

Morning Everyone!

Hasn't the weather been amazing this week?  I think I may have even got the tiniest hint of a tan!

Firstly I'd just like to say hello to my new followers: Joanne, Bunny, Sarah, Helen and Berit - thanks for stopping by my blog!

Today I want to share with you all my second design team project for the amazing Craft Your Days Away.

Our theme for this fortnight is Easter and we are sponsored this time by The Stamp Fairy who is giving $10 voucher to our lucky winner!

We don't normally give Easter cards in our family, for us Easter is generally all about the chocolate and getting together as a family - so instead I've made an Easter Basket for my lovely children. How cute are those little fluffy chicks! 

Although I suspect that I may need to help my children eat those eggs so they don't go off  / make a mess / make their teeth fall out / some other rubbish excuse to eat my children's chocolate.

I love my bee ribbon, so when I saw this honeycomb paper I knew I had to use them both!  To make the basket I found a tutorial here.  It's really simple to make.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Pollycraft - Chocklit
Sassy Cheryl's - Easter Parade
The Pixie Cottage - Cuddly Critters
Lexis Creations - Easter
Creative Craft Challenges - Anything But a Card
One Stop Craft Challenge - Easter
Allsorts - Photo Inspiration
Simply Create - Eggs or Bunnies

Anyway - thanks for looking - why not join us at Craft Your Days Away this fortnight for our Easter challenge - we'd love to see you there!
