Easter Goodies part 3

Hello everyone!
I hope you had a great Easter with your family and friends! I had a pretty low key Easter since my mom was still in the hospital- so I spent the day finishing up my Easter projects. My mom did come out of the hospital for a little while, but she wasn't feeling up to going out so she just came home and lied down. Anyway, we're all hoping that she can come home by May.

Okay- enough about that, onto the projects

I made 2 more Easter baskets for my co-worker's daughters. They are so funny and adorable. One daughter likes purple and one likes pink so I got them bunnies in their favorite colors and then alternated their basket colors.
For the pink colored one, I used my scraps- whoo hoo, pile is S-L-O-W-L-Y going down. For the purple basket, I used scraps too and I dry embossed the outer panels on this basket. To make the handles sturdier, I used a strip of CS and then added a punched border to it. I hope they like their gifts.

I then made 11 more of these covered notepads. I used 2 bunny digital images. I bought the girl and boy dressed in the outfits from chi chi memories and the bunny w/ the lollipop is from 2 cute rubber stamps and it was a free digi- they have really cute stamps so you should check out their Etsy store. I chose the base CS based on my friends' favorite colors and then I chose coordinating DSP. I then used punches to make the binding strips and then blinged the heck out of the DSP to finish it up. My friends really liked their gifts so that makes me very happy.

Anyway, it's Monday night and I'm watching Dancing With the Stars- I don't even know why, I really want to see Nicole Scherzinger from the Pussycat Dolls dance, but I also have to endure watching Kate Gosselin whine and moan and trod her way thru her dance. If you've seen my facebook posts then you know that I can't stand Kate Gosselin just because of her attitude. Oh well, off of my soapbox now!

I have 5 cards to make now, 4 for Administrative Professional Day (we're celebrating nexte week so I need to get things out this week) and then our co-worker is having surgery tomorrow so I'm making her office get well card. I also have to make my April OCS card and I signed up for Aloha RAK this month so I'll be busy- ooh boy! what did I do to myself?

Have a great week and I will be posting something else tomorrow!

Take care of yourselves and God Bless!


  1. Hello Kelli,

    Thanks for sending me the email! I love your basket, the rabbits are so cute sitting in them! I also like how you made your cards in long vertical shapes. Thanks for sharing the photos! I'm stealing them and put them into my gallery! Yay~


  2. Ha! I love DWTS too! I loved the sailor routine at the end, they were fantastic! I don't have a favorite dance yet though (kate is annoying, I have twins and I cannot imaging bailing out on them let alone 8 kids to do a dance compitition! plus she is such a whiner!) I just love to watch them all dance though, ps love the tall shinny cards!

  3. Boy Kelli you're such a busy bee. Nice things you made!
