Easter is Eggstra Spectacular!

Note: I had blog posts scheduled, and they obviously didn't post when they were supposed to - sorry! Back to doing it manually until I figure out what happened.

I love Easter. I love the hope of renewal/rebirth, the food (ham and deviled eggs, anyone?), the brightly colored eggs (which I miss since my kids are grown), Easter baskets full of candy (also missed since kids are gone), and that the days are getting longer and flowers are busting out all over! What's not to love?!

So, in the spirit of Spring and Easter baskets full of goodies, I came up with this card. Making the basket was super easy with the Ovals Collection Framelits and Venetian Romance DSP. The largest and second-largest (non-scalloped) ovals were used here. After cutting the DSP with the largest oval, it was cut a bit under halfway to create a smaller half for the basket and larger half for the handle. The handle was cut using the next-smaller oval. Using the Magnetic Platform made it so easy to keep the Framelit in place!

The Fringe Scissors made short work of the grass, and the Extra Wide Oval Punch worked perfectly to cut the colored eggs.  See the gold foil-wrapped 'chocolate' eggs? That was done in a jiffy with a Gold Foil Sheet and the Small Oval Punch!

Mmmm, chocolate eggs. Which is your favorite Easter candy? Do you go for the jelly beans first, or malted milk eggs? Do you dive into the chocolate bunny, or grab the Peeps before anything else?
