Stampin' B's - Easter Basket/Wreath

Good week and bad week. I bought a new chest for my craft room and hubby helped me rearrange some storage pieces and I'm so much happier with it now. I have my craft table all cleaned off and can actually work on it now. That's a real plus!!

For the bad part of my week, I was in the utility room last night, opened a cabinet door and knocked over a new bottle of Pine Sol which fell to the floor, cracked the lid into and spilled about half the bottle on my floor and into the grout. This was at bedtime so hubby and I had to stay up late cleaning and cleaning. It smells clean this morning but I don't think that will be good for the grout.

 This week at the Stampin' B's Design Team , Lois asked us to use a square, a circle, and an oval on our card. I decided to make a wreath for my circle, my card and the brick wall  are square, and the eggs are oval. I found the  basket and egg punch at T.J. Maxx for $3.99....pretty good deal. I used the brick wall embossing folder and I used 2 circle scallop die cuts cut together to get my circle . The greenery is a Sizzix branch w/leaves die cut.
Hope you'll join us. Just use the inlinkz tool to list your card or project.

Wow, my little bottle spilling Benzi. Are you sure it wasn't of an alcoholic type????? You must have been a little tipsy to come up with this really unique creation this week. I love how you cleverly used the shapes for the challenge. The little oval eggs in the basket are adorable and I love the ef b/g, your cool circular image and beautiful bow. I have to be nice to you on your blog, but on SCS I'm letting loose on you girl!! Good to visit your blog again. Great job on zee challenge!

How delightful, Benzi!! I love all that pastel goodness against the fresh white card base. I spy that bargain punch in action--such a lucky find! Way to go fitting in all three shapes in this delightful card. I hope your fresh pine scent doesn't ruin the grout.

That cute little punch was quite the bargain and I love it! This card is just as cute as they get, with that adorable little basket and all those eggs!
That must have been a heck of a job cleaning all that piney stuff off your floor when you were ready for bed! Don't you just hate that?! Well, at least your craft room is organized - that's vital for your sanity.........if you're anything like me :)
