Magical Monday - An Easter Basket!

Good Monday Morning my friends!
Welcome to my last Magical Monday with 'There's Magic in the Air with Paper Cupcakes'.  My DT term is done and I enjoyed every minute of it with a fabulous group of ladies!  They're also saying goodbye to Patti J - it has been such a pleasure working with this talented group of  ladies! 
Our lovely Sue set the challenge this week with this super sweet 'Eggs-traordinary Find' - isn't this bunny the sweetest!  She has asked us to make an Easter basket incorporating this image onto the project.
I used this wonderful design I found over on my friend Christine's blog.    I coloured the bunny & egg with very subtle shades of copics (it looks better IRL) and with my new MS grass punch I stuck it round the oval shape and added stickles for some sparkle!  The paper is from BG Porcelain.

I used another MS border punch (Daisy?) to create this pretty handle and added a gorgeous prima flower to the top.  A gree ribbon tied to the side adds some finishing detail to the basket.
It's an incredibly simple basket to make and have to say I'm so happy with the result.  I hope you're able to pop over to TMITA and check out all the other DT's creations - they're gorgeous!  And that maybe you can find the time to join in with the challenge this week too - Nina has another fab prize up for grabs!
Well, that's all for today folks!  Thank you so much for stopping by and coming for a visit!  I always love to see you here - I hope you enjoyed my little Easter basket.  I really hope I can get some more crafty time in this week - these last couple of weeks has been a little slow on the blogging side so I do apologise for that! Thanks for any comments you may leave - they are appreciated so much more than you could know.

I would also like to thank my beautiful blogging friends, Linda & Sue for passing on this fabulous award to me - again, thanks for thinking of me and it is truly appreciated.  I realise I also haven't mentioned my recent blog candy wins!  I want to thank Mandy for winning hers last Sunday and also Jodie from Oz for winning her Magnolia Down Under blog hop candy!  I was also a runner-up with Norma's candy and won a sweet Mukmuk Olympic mascot keychain (my son has already claimed that prize from me, LOL)!!  So, I have been incredibly lucky recently - maybe I should go and buy a lottery ticket!!!
Also, my class on Saturday at Heather's was a great success - I had such a blast with the ladies and they made fantastic cards using the cuttlebug resist technique!
OK, now I have to apologise for the long post, LOL!  Enjoy your day everyone!
