Hoppy Easter!

 Happy Easter Everyone~  I hope you all have a blessed day and get to spend time with your loved ones!  We are off to church this morning, then we will be going out to a lunch buffet with my in-laws and after that I am going to visit from Gram and Gramps!  Hubby has to work this afternoon/evening so that's a bummer...especially seeing how we missed Christmas with my family because he was working.

Yesterday I was busy making some Easter cards for my parents and for my in-laws....then of course had to make cute little candy baskets for my bro and sis....I will share those later this week.
After seeing Maria's amazing basket, I thought I had to go about trying to make an altered flower pot card...turning it into an easter basket instead.  I think these turned out awesome....thanks Maria for the inspiration!  The eggs are actually felt eggs that I found earlier this season at HL.
 This one is the basket card that I made for my in-laws.  I cut all the strips and inked them with walnut distress ink and drew a line with my chocolate marker....then wove all the strips together.  Cut a handle and then added extra decorations.
This is how the basket looks in two pieces.  I have used one of the new SU clear stamp sets.  Before I show you the close up of my parents basket card I have some  
EXCITING news to share with you.....
Susana from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design has asked me to be a Guest Designer for her for the next three months!  
I am sooooo excited and sooooo honored to be joining such a wonderful and talented team for the next few months!  Thanks again Susana!
Now, onto my parent's easter card.  This is my very first card that I am making for the SCACD DT and am so excited to share it with you!
This is what it looks like in two pieces!  I've made a fun flip open card on the inside and have used the Victoria Case Little Danni with Flutterby for SCACD
Here is a close up.  Of course this cutie was colored with my Copics and accented with a white gel pen.  I tried a new coloring technique on her hair to give more texture.  What do you think?  I'd love some feedback.
And here is the inside of the little flip open card.  I'm super excited with how this one turned out and can not wait to give it to my parents today....I know my mom will love it!  And I have a few stamping goodies for my Mom and some Pezz candies for my Dad!

Again I hope you all have a blessed day!
