Easter is near...

Oh I love Spring and Easter, I love of the blossom and greenery and this week I think I'm going to overwhelme you with lots of Easter projects. The first is this lovely Easter Egg basket. On Thursday, I went round Caroline, my upline where we had a share and play session, we all took our stuff from that we had bought from the mini and just made and played lots! It was fab, before we knew, we realised we had been doing that for over 5 hours!! 

I used the Sizzix Scallop Envelope Die and the Big Shot, to cut out 4 envelopes. I used Bashful Blue card, the egg stamp from the Nature Walk, which Helen brought and the flowers on top of the handle are from A Good Egg Set. I ran the scallop envelopes through the polka dots embossing folder before sticking together, this is becoming my favourite embossing folder. I hope you like it, it is so easy...I must say that I pinched the idea of the pastel eggs from Caroline, I wasn't sure at first but I love it now! I have also entered this into the Simply Stampin' Challenge, as their theme for this week is Easter, which I love!

What do you think? 
See you tomorrow for another Easter themed project!
