Getting Ready for Easter at THE CRAFTY PAD

Happy Sunday everyone!

I do hope you are all enjoying some sunshine this fine morning.....I certainly am!

We have a new challenge for you over at THE CRAFTY PAD this week, and it's all about


Yes folks, it couldn't be easier! And on top of that we've got the wonderful JOANNA SHEEN as our sponsor this week, with a £10 gift voucher to spend in her shop!

Now over at THE CRAFTY PAD DESIGNS our fab boss Debbie has created some wonderful images which we had a chance to play with, including EASTER BUNNY 1 which I have used. It is not a requirement that you use a Crafty Pad image, but of course we are always thrilled if you do.....we LOVE to see what you come up with, and there are LOADS of wonderful images for you to choose from in the shop.

I have created an Easter basket. It is made from one sheet of 12"x12" card and it really was so simple to make! I coloured my Bunny with Promarkers, cut him out and mounted him onto a circle of matching DP and matted him onto a scalloped nestie.

I punched some little flowers with my woodware punches and added flat-backed pearls to their centres.

An organza ribbon tied around the handle, some pink tissue paper and of course a foil-wrapped chocolate egg to finish.

We would love for you to join our EASTER CHALLENGE at The Crafty Pad this week, and look forward to visiting your blogs during the week.

My easter basket will enter the following challenges:
Thanks for popping by!
