Candy continued...and a card

Whew! Sorry I didn't get back earlier with a blog candy photo. This is the week before spring break (for me and my kids) and I've had quite a bit of homework. Gotta love how the weeks before and after break are full of tests and projects and reading - almost makes it seem like we would do the same amount of work with or without a break...hmmmm. ;)
Anyway, I'm glad to have a break. So here's the blog candy photo above, and I'll keep it running until Wednesday. Just comment on the previous post and you're entered to win!
I've got a fun card to share today. I used Spellbinders Nested Eggs dies and some scraps of paper. The polka-dots are Jillibean Soup and the gingham is Pink Paislee. I can never part with paper that bright and pretty!
I just cut a piece of light brown cardstock to resemble some sort of basket and scored it with my Martha Stewart score board. I inked over the top as well. After I finished the basket and eggs, I pasted it onto a blank card base and then cut around it so that the base was also shaped like the eggs and basket. Then I accessorized with a fun bow and a felt button. I made a simple tag with a Spellbinders Labels Seventeen die and letters stickers. This card was really simple, but also a lot of fun.
Well, thanks for taking a peek!
