I Said I Wouldn't Do This!

Ok, I was talked into creating a blog to showcase my creativity. I have been resisting this for far too long, but now is the time to finally get the ball rolling.

So here goes. Come with me on my journey into creativity.

Happy Easter Bunny Baskets

I'm trying to be ahead of the game in creating my Easter gifts.  While out shopping at Dollar Tree, I stumbled upon these little wooden boxes.  I passed them up the first time, but went back the next day to get them.  I thought of what I could  use them for and went on a mission.  In browsing the Cricut MB, there have been a few pictures of Easter bunny cards.  So I decided to try my hand at creating my own bunny in Cricut Design Studio .  Here is my rendition of my version of Easter Baskets to give to my grandson and some other children that I simply adore.

I used lots of different cartridges to create this basket as follows:
George and Basic Shapes was used to create the bunny, the nose and the carrot
Ashlyn's Alphabet  was used for the white sign
A Child's Year was used for the "Happy"
Paper Pups  was used for the "Easter"
Paper Doll Dress Up was used for the carrot top

I changed out the ribbon and used some American Crafts Easter Ribbon.  The bunny butt was made from Pebbles, Inc. Pom Poms.  I embossed the bunny ears with a cuttlebug folder.  The bunny was inked with Tsuneiko Chalk inks.
