Happy Spring To You!

 
 
Hi Everyone! Happy Spring! I appreciate you all coming to visit my blog each time that I post a new project or card, so I have put together a Spring Basket of Goodies for one of my followers.
 
 
For the Basket Pocket, I used Digi Design Papers from Designs by Angie, Isabel Collection, that I found at MyGrafico. I printed a 6 inch square. I scored it at 3 inches using the ScorBuddy and folded the paper in half. I rounded the bottom corners to give the basket some shape. I added the border that I punched with Martha Stewart Doily Border Punch and the ribbon that I found at Michael's. Then, I added ScorTape to the inside edges to close the sides up. I did this after adding the ribbon, because I wanted to be able to wrap the ribbon around the edges of the paper for a clean finish. I have found when adding some ribbons to a project that it is better to place the ScorTape where you want the ribbon to be placed on the project and then add the ribbon on top of it. This way the ribbon will come out smooth and straight. I added some grass that I punched using the Martha Stewart Grass Border Punch to the edge of the basket. I added some flowers from my stash and some berries that I found at Joann's. The leaves were punched with the Martha Stewart Frond Punch.
  
 
 
 
For the sign that I have added to the basket, I have used the sweet Mini Bunny Tilda, from Magnolia-licious, that was stamped on Cryogen White Card Stock and was colored using Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. The "happy spring" is from MemoryBox.  The little flower is from All Natural Accents.


 
The Candy Includes:
 
*Princess Tilda
*Studio G Cling Mounted Rubber Stamp Set - Thinking of You
*Studio G Cling Mounted Rubber Stamp Set - Floral Background
*Studio G Clear Stamp Set - Easter
*Pink and Lavender Pearls
*Pink Rhinestone Butterfly Stickers
*Recollections Chick Stickers
*Pastel Butterfly Embellishments
*Flat Back Flower Rhinestones
*Crystal Flowers
*3 Yards of Ribbon
 
It will be all wrapped up for you in the Basket Pocket with the little Happy Spring Tilda Sign.
 
 
To be eligible, I am asking that you please:

(1) Leave a comment for me on this posting
(2) Become a follower if you are not already
(3) And if you would like, show a picture of the Spring Candy on your sidebar with a link to my blog
 
 
You will have until Friday, March 29th, 8am PST to enter. I will announce the winner on Saturday, March 30th.
 
I hope you all have a wonderful day!
 
Big Hugs,
 
Suzan
