The Bunny's Basket & a Butterfly



HI all,

Well I have finally got my Hero Art's Heatwing Butterfly F5158. I have been waiting patiently for this since the last lot of stamps came in. I love this stamp, you will see what I mean if you go the Hero Arts Flickr pool. There are some amazingly talented women who do unimaginable things with this stamp. I'm only hoping that I can do this stamp justice.

As you can see I have made Em an Easter Basket. I spotted this while I was waiting for the rain to stop (another day of rain ugghhh) after I had brought a heap of stuff at my LSS. Isn't that always the way :-). They come "flat packed" & white so I have decorated it with Imaginisce "For Peep's Sake/Pretty New Dress" papers. I have been hoarding these papers for awhile now. Originally I was going to cover some wooden letters with them, but since then I have done something else with the letters which I will blog later. I think this basket is so cute. But I'm not sure about all that space. I have a clutter issue I'm sure. I wanted this basket to last a few easters, so didn't want to make it too babish. I can't wait to see what Em thinks of this now it's complete. I want this to be the "Magical Easter Basket" from the Easter Bunny. Sort of a tradition for her. Well I'm off to go & make some b'day cards as I'm getting a little low on them. TTFN

Paula - this basket is awesome - yes it will become a tradition.... Em can leave it out for Easter bunny to fill every year. Love all those traditions we can start for the kids. You'll love the butterfly - have you seen a few people have put it on shrinky dink to make little ones to embellish with. Hope you have a great Easter.
