Happy Easter and little Easter Treat Baskets!

Hi, Hope you all are having a wonderful Easter. I thought I would do a quick post sharing some little Easter Treat Baskets that I made. I made the Brown one for my Daughter. Used Kraft Cardstock. Rubbed Close to Cocoa Ink on the Square Lattice Embossing Folder from Stampin Up and ran the Cardstock through the Cuttlebug. Sponged the edges. Used two Brown Brads to hold the handles.



Made a Blue one for my Grandson. Used Bashful Blue Ink with Bashful Blue Cardstock and Blue Brads.
The Pink one I made for my Grand Daughter. Used Almost Amethyst Ink on it and used White Brads.
They thought they were really cute and they are pretty simple to make. I just added some Hershey Kisses.  I think these would be so Cute to have on the table for Easter Dinner to give to everyone.

Thanks so much for stopping by again Happy Easter! Cindy

Easter Cards and Winner!!!

Hi and welcome to my Blog. Wanted to Share some pictures of the Easter Cards that I made for my two little Grand Children. They are Simple, nothing Fancy. I didn't even use my Cricut Machine. For my Grand Daughters Card. I just Sponged the Sky and Grass. Stamped the cute little Silhouette of a Girl. Punched out three Flowers and added Pearls. The pink Cardstock I did stamp with a Stampin Up Stamp Set. I can't remember what it's called now.


For my Grandsons Card, The Bunnies Face was made with my Martha Stewart Circle Cutter. Ears made with Large and Small Oval Punches from Stampin Up. Nose made with a tiny Heart Punch,Hand drew the mouth. Added Hemp Twine for the Whiskers. Added some googly eyes. I seriously think I made these two Cards in record time. They were that Simple. Simple is a good thing. Right!!!


I want to thank you all that left the Super nice Comments about my Crocheted Owl Phone Holder that I had made for the Hoo's Ready For Spring Owl Hop. I was so surprised that you all liked it as much as I do. I really did have a fun time making it.

Spring is one of my favorite time's of the year. Everything is so fresh and new. So I was trying to figure out what to make. A lot of Idea's ran through my mind. But I decided that I would (attempt) to try to make something out of my new Obsession, I mean Hobby. Which is Crocheting. I have only been Crocheting for a few months now and I Love It !!! I have wanted to learn how for Years and Years,So now I can check it off my Bucket List.  I still have a lot to learn but it's really Fun.

I had made my Daughter a Phone Holder and she Loved It, So I thought I would attempt to make an Owl one. I think it turned out really Cute and I had so much fun making It. Thought the colors of yarn that I used were perfect for Spring. I will be making me one In Fall colors to.
