Best way to spend a rainy day....

or any day for that matter.
My goddaughter Maren
came and spent the night.
We had a nice dinner
(thanks to my hubby for cooking!),
I fixed her scrapbook that needed extender posts added
(she likes pop-dots, too! Wonder where she got that from?!)
and she fixed my earrings.
We played a game of Scrabble
and then this morning after breakfast
we made moustaches
We cut them out using the Artiste cartridge from Close to My Heart
stamped it from the Closet to my Heart  Perfect Fit-Dad.
Hot glued a chopstick that we first covered in decorative washi tape
and wha-la: instant moustache!
Then we made
 these ADORABLE picnic baskets...

I got the template at
It was super easy to cut out and put together.
The paper of course is Chantilly
and the handle and flowers were cut
using our Close to My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge.
I did not use the handle from the template---
I cut a border strip from the AP cartridge and it worked perfectly!

These would make beautiful Easter baskets
or decorations for a spring shower
Ladies tea
or mother and daughter luncheon...
maybe reduce it just a tad for a little bit of
Maybe have one side open
with some moss and flowers spilling out...?!

It is cold, rainy and dreary here at the beach
so I think a good book, a nap
and maybe even making a few more baskets
is on my afternoon schedule.
Until next time,
happy stamping and scrapping!
