Cut it Up – Spring – Anything But a Card

CIU challenge blogYay!  Happy Spring!  It was such a cold winter.  I’m so happy spring has finally arrived! It’s my favorite season.  I have yet to see any robins, but my husband saw two the other day, so it’s official!

And we’re celebrating over at Cut it Up!

Our challenge this time is to make a spring project that is not a card.  I decided to make another basket from the  My Scrap Chick Spring Baskets Trio.

P1100015webThat cute little rabbit who’s trying to steal the carrots is from Create a Critter, of course! Now, what to put in it?  I wanted to put a package of carrot seeds, but I’ve been so busy with school stuff, I couldn’t get out to the store.  On my way home yesterday, I stopped at CVS to check out their Easter candy and found some foil covered chocolate carrots!  Perfect!

P1100019webThe rabbit is on a skewer.  Using my Gypsy (I love that thing) I flipped a copy horizontally and hid all the cut lines and glued that to the back.  Had to add a little cotton tail!

    I never got into the gypsy …good thing…so I could spend my money on more stuff….haha. I bought that set and I just might be using that one for your challenge. I was planning to make something for my grand daughter, but I’ll see if I can change my plan so it doesn’t look like I’m copying you, but when something is good, you don’t change it…haha. Your project is soooo sweet!

    I used this file a couple of years ago for a Design Team project and it is still one of my favourite projects. Evelyn I love how you have added the bunny on the skewer and those chocolates look so delicious!
