Happy Easter

Wishing all my friends a Happy Easter as we celebrate our Risen Lord and Savior.

And, yes, it might seem strange to be showcasing a Christmas Card on this Easter Sunday.  However, we have a new week, so that means a new challenge at Christmas Card Challenges.  This week the optional twist is a Color Challenge (with a photo, so I had to add the berries LOL).

I decided to begin making my "gift" Christmas Cards.  I use them to add a gift card or some homemade goodies ~ it's my 3-dimensional "card."

I saw something similar a while back on Pinterest, but when I searched the internet, I couldn't find a pattern or instructions anywhere.  So, I created my own.  I'm not sure if it's the same size as the one I saw, but it works great and comes together faster than I expected.  I'll share the pattern and instructions in another post in a few days (I created an "Easter Basket" for hubby and I have pics and instructions for that basket).

I call this my Boat Basket because I think it resembles a boat. Lots of cutting and sponging, but it's well worth it.

I hope you stop by the Christmas Card Challenges blog to see what the other Designers have created for your inspiration this week.  And, you might as well begin your Christmas Cards now ... Christmas will be here soon and you'll be happy you have a few cards in your stash.


  1. Oh Heather, I love your gorgeous "Boat Basket". It is so pretty.
    Happy Easter.

    1. Happy Easter to you JoAnn. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Belated Happy Easter to you, too, Heather. (I let blog surfing slide over the holiday weekend.) ;) What an absolutely amazing project you have created! Looking forward to seeing the step-by-step.

    1. I'm running a couple days behind with the holiday. Hope to have it finished by Thursday.
