Well, this is my very last post for Nina at There's Magic in the Air. It's been an incredibly fun adventure, and Nina is a wonderful, positive, talented 'boss'. I will miss my DT sistah's as well, but it's time to let someone new fill this spot! And girls, I promise to play the challenges as often as I can!
For those of you that have participated in the last two challenges, and are reading this post, please forgive me for not getting to your blogs to comment. I actually timed one blog comment that I made last week and it came in at 47 minutes. Obviously, I can't retain my sanity at that speed!
Thanks to Shirley for allowing me to use her computer to print this weeks image!!! You are the best!!! And thanks Nina, for being SO understanding and sweet the last couple of weeks!
Today's challenge at There's Magic in the Air with Paper Cupcakes comes from Sue Walsh. Sue wants us to use this week's image, "Eggs-traordinary Find" and create a paper basket. She has included several sites to visit that include directions for adorable baskets. However, as you know, my computer won't really allow that, so here is what I did - easy peasy!
I cut two strips of orchid CS that measured 4" x 12". I scored these both at 4" and 8". I used the wide trellis punch from Martha Stewart on all four ends. I punched two holes at the top and two at the bottom on each side. I then laid one strip on top of the other, forming a plus sign. Fold the edges up, run a ribbon through the holes, and voila! Easy peasy!
All coloring is done with Koh-I-Noor pencils and LOMS. White polar Flower Soft was added to bunny for some fluff!!!
Hope this gives you a smile today! Don't laugh at my empty eggs! If I fill them too soon, guess who will eat the props??? Yup - ME!
I do have some good news! We received an e-mail, saying that our new computer will be delievered TODAY!!!!!!! My guess is that it will take a week or so (with DH's travel schedule) to get the data transferred from one computer to the other, but hopefully, by this time next week, things will be looking much brighter! Yippee!!!
Have a great week!
