Hi everyone, hope you had a good weekend. Mine was great because I had a lovely day at the NEC meeting up with my blogging friends Kim, Jo, Tara, and Georgia and also met Tab, Heather, Louise, Cloe and Clare for the first time. It was lovely to briefly chat with Jacque, Bev and Dawny P (Garners to you girl :D) and the whole day was even more special as I was able to share the journey with my lovely friend Kim which meant the hours of driving whizzed by :D. Thanks to you all girls for making the day very special and I look forward to the next one :).
It was lovely to meet Barbro and John for the first time at the Magnolia stand, a lovely couple and they kindly treated me to a gorgeous new Tilda which I'll be showing soon. I also added a few more Magnolia lovlies to my collection and some pretty Magnolia flowers. I loved seeing the stand all set up and the beautiful cards made by my Magnolia DT friends on display, they're even more beautiful in real life.
My little Easter Basket (instructions courtesy of America [thank you America, I love it] at The Cuttlebug Challenges Blog) with the gorgeous bunny Tilda includes one of my NEC purchases :), the grass punch which I used on some Doodlebug green velvet card. The top of the basket and the handle are punched with another MS, the lattice edger punch. I decided Tilda would be a pink bunny and she's water coloured with distress inks, cut out and placed sitting on the grass, there's some stickles of course :) and some flowers punched from glitter card with pearl centres. I added some pretty ribbon and embossed the panel around the basket with the CB Swiss dots embossing folder.
I'm entering my basket into these challenges:
Cuttlebug Challenges - Easter
Fussy and Fancy Challenge - Easter
Cupcake Challenges - Easter, spring and lots of chocolate
I don't suppose the mini eggs in the basket will last much longer than it takes me to publish this post :). TFL and thanks as always for your comments.
