My Very First Basket

I'm late, I'm late, I'm late for a very important date!!!  Oh me oh my...  I just couldn't stay up any longer last night to post this.  I was even late for my "date" with a friend to workout this morning.  Sometimes, life just gets in the way - lol!

Better late than never... here is my very FIRST basket!  I feel like I did when I finally made and posted my first easel card - ha ha ha...  I'm probably the last person to make one of these beauties : )  Here's the tutorial I used.


Here's one side, hee hee!


... and here's the other side : )

I do give thanks to the Fussy & Fancy Girls for having this challenge!  Without them, I still would not have conquered this intimidating looking project!!!  Thanks girlies : )  Hey, if I can do this, anyone can!!!  You'll want to check out the other waaaay cool baskets the DT have come up with.  Get your thinking caps on and join us in the basket challenge!

Next up - A Paper Romance and i {heart} copics duet!

Thanks for stopping by, my friends.

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul ~
