WMS Sneak Peek - Spring Baskets

I know I've been a horrible blogger... but I'm prepping to be out of town again this week so bear with me. I'm going to be skimping on the supply list to preserve my sanity. Do feel free to contact me (see link on the left) if you have any questions and I promise I'll get back to ya.

The first day of sneak peeks have begun for the newest Waltzingmouse Stamps release! There will be four awesome new sets on Thursday being released! There will also be a blog hop that day to celebrate complete with prizes so be sure not to miss out on the fun!

I'm showcasing Spring Baskets today. This is just such a fun set with great sentiments and fun baskets to color and to fill with all sorts of goodies!

I filled my basket with some easter eggs that I paper pieced. They'd be fun to color as well! I colored my basket and then added a ribbon on the top (in lieu of coloring the ribbon that is actually associated with this basket).

I kept the image and sentiment simple and then used patterned papers and pearls to accent the rest of the card.

Laurie and Claire should also have some fun things to share today! So be sure to hop over for more inspiration!
