*** A tisket, a tasket, a pretty little Basket!

 Good Friday morning. Are you looking forward to a fun weekend? I sure hope so; I know I am! If you are looking to do a little crafting this weekend maybe you'd like to try your hand at this cute project. I got the pattern for the basket here. I was able to cut out all of the pieces for the basket body from my scraps! I ink distressed the all of the edges. I used Meljen's "Little Layered Flowers Button Daisy" image which you can find right here. I resized the image and printed it out a dozen times onto a scrap of orange distressed DP. Then I fussy cut them all out.  {It really didn't take that long to do, they cut out quite easily!}. I adhered the flowers to the basket with foam dots and added pearls to their centers. A pretty little die cut with a pearl center placed on the front center and a bright orange bow on the handle to finish up the basket.


 Then I made some simple little note cards, to place inside the basket, using the same Meljen's image and a stamped sentiment.


Today, Melissa is offering this little cutie for you as a FREEBIE!  


Make sure you head over to the shop & pick it up!

So that's it for me. Hope I've sparked your creative flame a bit.
Until next time.
hugs,
Nancy
