Card Creations and More #8 A cute Basket

This week  at Card Creations and More, we were to make any thing, but not a card or a layout. So immediately I thought of two things. Carrots that I made last year from and some type of basket. I searched for options online and found this one made by Denise Hill on her blog. She has the SVG file to use.  Hers has a handle I chose not to use.

The bottom one was my first try. I thought it would be cute to add ribbon, but it was too thick and did not look right. The second try, I decided to fancy it up a bit by adding a punched border and this time a  thinner ribbon and of course cute paper flowers. I thought of making 3-D flowers but went with the flat version for convience and time. Either way I am glad to have made these. Now just 44 more. I am making these baskets for Teacher Appreciations week and our theme is, " Our teacher and staff are our stars." Each will get a VIP basket of cute things on one of the days that week. In order to keep cost down.  Paper is the lest expense way to go, unless I can find some after Easter clearance baskets that don't look too Eastery.

Card Creations and More # 7

This week we are making a "Spring" Card. What a great way to encourage more good sunny weather. Where I live a little less spring showers during the day would be nice too. My favorite thing of spring is the new growth of flowers. I just love tulips and daffadils and all the pretty colors of spring.

I hope you join us this week for this "spring" challenge at Card Creations and More.

CCC Easter Blog Hop

Welcome to the CCC Easter Blog Hop. I am so glad you joined us. If you are new please start here at the beginning.

If you came from Lezlye's blog , then you are in the right place. I made this card using the chick from create a critter, the egg from simply charmed, The background leaves from cindy loo. I can't remember where I found this card base from (Wild card maybe?). I made it a month ago, so it has eluded my memory. 

Thanks for stopping by. I would love it if you left me a comment or two. Have a great day and your next stop is Barbara R at 

Don't for get CCC is giving away some great blog candy for visiting everyone's blog.

I re-added the picture.  I can see it on my PC, but others don't seem to be seeing it.  Humm, so strange.
