Here Comes the Easter Bunny!..... and a little lamb!

A fun Free for All challenge at Split Coast on Friday - to make a 3D basket using the colors of plum, celery and banana.

I used Claire's adorable basket template from last year. I stamped the sides of the basket with the beautiful broderie anglaise lace stamp (don't you love that name?!) from the Faux Fun set by Waltzingmouse Stamps
I made my handle using a Martha Stewart lacey punch and I put a strip of yellow CS behind it so it shows through the holes in the lace. The base is a narrow scalloped rectangle Nestability.

I'll be making 10 of these to sell at my church Easter Sale. Aren't these little Lindt bunnies and lambs adorable!? They fit in my baskets perfectly don't you think?!

You can see the basket I made using this pattern last year on this post

Kent and I met up with friend and fellow Stamping Around teacher, Donna and her DH, Doug yesterday - we had a great meal at The Old Salt Restaurant in Hampton, NH. Donna and I will be teaching at the next Stamping Around weekend at Wholly Scrap in North Hampton, NH 4/16-4/17 We'd love to meet you there!!

This is also qualifies for the Our Creative Corner challenge to think Easter!
