You're Special

Good morning! 
I apologize for my absence this week, but let's just say that this week has been a wee bit trying.
Life sometimes has a way of sneaking up on you and biting you in the rear!
But I digress....
I am up on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog today with a step by step tutorial on how to make this easy shaker card.
Just a few supplies, and you've got yourself a fun, interactive card!
I hope you can pop by the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog for my tutorial!
Have a great Friday!!

Crafty Secrets Design Team Challenge and Linky Party!

Good morning! 
Today is the day for Crafty Secret's Design Team Challenge and Linky Party! AND....we had the pleasure of using some gorgeous ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon!
I normally have a tutorial, but the last couple of weeks with Cortney have made it a bit difficult to find time to craft.    
I used this beautiful image from the Little Blessings Creative Scraps. 
I love embellishing these images with flowers. 
So I raided my flower stash and incorporated them with the ribbons I had received. I loved the aquas, pinks, and a bit of orange together!
Be sure to visit the other gals! They have gorgeous projects waiting for you!

Have a wonderful day!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Easter Greetings Vintage Basket

I have an Easter basket to share with you today.
I found these boring, brown paper mache baskets at Michaels and decided with a bit of paint and some glitter, they could be spectacular!
I painted it a Robin's Egg Blue. After is was dry I brushed on some Modge Podge and sprinkled it with clear German glass glitter. 
I tied ribbon around it and added this pretty vintage egg from the Crafty Secret's Victorian Floral Easter Eggs collection. 
The eggs and edges were dipped in glue and then the glitter. I tied a bit of lace and added this bird's nest.  It was a perfect match! 
I made a pink one too, but didn't get a chance to photograph it.  Maybe I will have to share it tomorrow. ;)  
Have a blessed Easter!
Hugs my friends!
