Happy Birthday Elise

Hi there

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas - ours was very relaxed spending time with the family.  The tree and all the Christmas decorations are now packed away and I've made a start on cleaning my craft space ready for the New Year.  I started on the cupboard and found a plastic bag with 9 bags of Whittakers mini slabs so I packed them into my 'chocolate' container - they 'just' managed to fit in.  On going back to the cupboard I found another plastic bag with another 9 packets of mini slabs!! I think I'd better stop buying chocolate and start making some projects to use them up.  Don't worry the use by date isn't till July 2015 :).

Now on with the card - a friends daughter turned two earlier this month and this is the card and basket I made.

I had the embossed piece of card stock sitting on my desk from some other project that changed so I used that as my base.  My nine squares fitted perfectly in-between the embossing and balanced the card front.  The little basket is one I saw on Dawn Griffith's blog years ago and really love.
