House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge-#214 "Easter"

Good Monday morning dear bogging friends!!

And how was everyone's weekend??!!  We had some much needed sun along with some warmer all in all a nice weekend!

Today at House Mouse and Friends we begin a brand new challenge with Lorraine as our talented hostess for the next two weeks...Lols has chosen "Easter" as her theme!!!  As always you have the option of "Anything Goes"!

So I decided to start working on the Grandkiddies Easter projects and thought a little basket would serve both as a card and something to put some goodies in...I started with Sir Quinn's!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
I used Sizzix #559897 for the basket...
DP (inside and outside) and from "Riverbank Revels" by Trimcraft...
decorated it with a band of distressed cheesecloth and knots...
 this sweet mouse is "Don't Spill the Beans" HMIR1012...
coloured with my copics...
jelly beans are accents with Glossy Accents...
I cut the stamp out and re-attached the egg/jelly beans closer to the mouse/egg...
"Happy Easter" is Hero Arts...
One Easter project done!!!!  Now it's time for you all to scurry on over to House Mouse and Fiends Monday talented Mousey Sisters have some wonderful projects to show you!
