Easter with Hobbycutz Challenges

Hope you are all having a good weekend.  I am currently away for the weekend with family so I scheduled this post. Hopefully blogger has played nicely and published it for me.

Today sees the start of the second fortnightly challenge over at Hobbycutz Challenges.  Can I just say thank you to everyone who entered our first challenge and blog hop.  We had over 100 entries for our first challenge.  Just amazing and thank you all for your support. Don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog to find out if you are a winner.

The theme for our second challenge is:
Easter
Just perfect as Easter is only around the corner.  For full details of the challenge just pop over to Hobbycutz Challenges.  You can find more inspiration from the fabulous design team too.


I made a little Easter basket out of card.  I covered the sides with some freebie papers that I have had in my stash for months.  I added the little picket fence border from Hobbycutz as I thought it gave the impression of flowers growing behind the fence.  I lined the basket with some green organza material.  The little sign is also from Hobbycutz.


Here is another view which shows the decorated handle.  The little wooden butterflies are from Hobbycutz and I gave them a light coating of white acrylic paint.

I hope you like and would love to know what you think.  Looking forward to seeing all your lovely creations.  

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Fab N Funky - Add a sentiment
Divas By Design - Put on some pink
Polka Doodles - Happy Easter
Simply Create Too - Easter
Sentimental Sundays - Anything goes
