Guest Designer and a SVGcuts.com Giveaway!

I have been dealing with a sick child all week, we went to the Doctor today and He has an ear infection so MJ stepped up to the plate for me and She created some fabulous projects for y'all today.

This project was fun to make and so colorful. I used the  svgcuts.com file "Easter Basket Collection". I scored my baskets with the scorpal. I was sooo lucky I found the paper at JoAnn's on sale!!!.  The solid pearl paper is from the "gemstones collection" by Coredinations, It has texture and it shimmers a little....perfect for Easter projects. The Patterned paper is from K & Co., "Life's Little Occasions" Collection. The different flowers and ribbons are a combination of purchases made between Michael's, JoAnn's and Hobby Lobby. I used different embellishments like brads, prima flowers, gemstones and pearls all from my stash.
I glued the  baskets together with Scotch Quick-Dry Adhesive and attached the flowers and ribbons with my hot glue gun.

I could not resist making a card for my last day a a Guest Designer for Tammy's blog. So I decided to make a Z-fold accordion card.  I love love and love the "Easter Morning Egg Hunt"  collection by svgcuts.com and I decided to make something with it. I used all my scrap paper from the baskets the make this card.

I tied up my card with a cute ribbon to keep it from opening.  The sentiment font is Altastgreeting and it's elevated with pop dots.

After completing all of these projects ..... I'm sooooo ready for Easter!! :)
