Easter Baskets

Hello....Hope you are all keeping well and warm...Its sunny but chilly and windy here in Essex...and the builders have been here today and the wall is drying out well....hopefully the rest of the work will start on Friday....

I have been asked by the craft club to take a class next month....as it will be just before easter I thought it would nice to make Easter Baskets....the 1st one made went in the bin!...but got the hang of it on the two I made here...I think the pink would be nice as a get well or Birthday...and had a "dry run" with one of the ladies who came to my house to help me cut out all the dies cuts....the die set is from Sizzix....card from Papermill and the bit boxes.....I have made them so they fold flat and  fit into a 6x6 envelope.....
