Baskets & Bunnies

I am a woman who lives life with intention.  That is, I intend to do lots of things but somehow it never really grows into more than intention. Sound familiar?  So, I am very happy when I manage to get half way through an intention or even just start one for that matter.  I intend to make another dozen of these cute baskets!  
The JUGS (Just Us Girls) Challenge blog puts out a new challenge every Saturday.  This weeks challenge was to create a project using a template.  I never need too much encouragement when it comes to playing along with a template challenge and with Easter around the corner the choice was simple.  I remember coming across this sweet basket designed by Lauren Meader and could not wait to put them together.  You can find Lauren's templates in her store, My Time Made Easy.  They are so easy to use and such a fun way to wrap a gift.  She has a free template on offer too if you would like to try one.  Be warned though that there will be no turning back.  This Basket Basics template is one of her Timeless Templates and can be purchased through Papertrey Ink.

Thanks for stopping by.  I intend to get on here a little more often ....

Spinner Card Fun

I came across a spinner card on the internet at some point and have not been able to stop thinking about it so I googled "instructions for spinner card" and browsed through a variety of blogs and websites to get the general idea of how to put it together.  It is the cutest thing ever and I can not believe how easy it is to make.  If you haven't tried this yet you really must give it a go.  
My card design was completely inspired (or is the correct word lifted?) by this Nichole Heady card which is so adorable.  When I found this sweet Kaisercraft stamp I could not get Nichole's card out of my head.  
Of course you have to see this card in action to fully appreciate it but it is sure to delight the recipient.

PS:  I just want to say thanks for stopping by and for taking the time to comment if you have.  I cannot believe that I have not had a moment to post much this month but was encouraged tonight by some really sweet comments from Teri.
