Welcome to my blog. I hope you find plenty of inspiration here. Nothing too fancy, no great skills required, just lots of cards, gifts and perhaps the odd bit of shopping.

My blog contains lots of links to freebies. Without sounding like "mother" can I ask you to leave a kind comment to the generous givers of such fabulous artwork. I know of at least a couple of artists who are feeling a bit unloved at the moment. Thanks. X

Easter baskets.

Right i'm back. I've been waiting for the sun to come round to the bedroom so i can take some half decent photos.These little baskets were inspired by something i saw on a website last year,i saved the pic but i didn't make note of where i saw it.I didn't think i needed to, after all it wasn't as if i was going to be starting a blog or anything was it???! So i've done some trawling and wouldn't you know it ,the original one was a bought box that had been decorated.
These are made in the same way as the milk cartons but are scored at 2" 5" 7" and 10" to make a rectangular box,and are obviously not as tall, your piece of card needs to be 11" x 5". the flaps underneath are 11/2" so the box is 31/2" tall.

And yes,you're right i do only have one easter stamp and thats only thanks to Quick Cards mag.Not sure whether that photo is a bit blurred or whether i need to clean my glasses! Well i'm off to town now to change some trousers for mother, stubborn little mule refuses to try anything on then lucky me has to take everything back. Still, she is 89  bless her. I can't see me reaching that age with my lifestyle!
    Bye bye for now.  Di. xx
