Good evening to you all in the land of blog
(WARNING PHOTO HEAVY!!!!!!!)
You may wish to get yourself a coffee now :)
I was awoken early by a fisherman :(, however then popped to the Hobby House for a top up and then I have played all day, whilst my dear husband fished all day :) Obviously with the lovely sunshine, had to now and again have a rest and a coffee out in the sunshine on my patio table, not that crafting is heavy going but just because I had to get out in the sun. Fingers crossed it will be out again tomorrow as we have planned to put some bedding plants in the now weeded raised bed.
So what have I been playing at, well, some I cannot show you yet as they are for DT's but this one, I can.
I made an Easter Egg Basket.
I used some gorgeous green vintage papers from Grimsby Crafts. The base is the largest of the grand nestie circles. The sides are strips punched with the large MS daisy Punch. The lace runs around the bottom of the half daisies. The flowers and little bows and foliage decorate all around and down the handle.
The eggs well to die for, when I saw these in Lidl's just had to buy them. They are pretty egg candles, so delicate and beautifully designed, a perfect addition to any basket :) might have to go get some more............
Here are some close ups
