Happy Spring !! Ippity Style

Happy Monday... Happy Spring.. so they say!! I am just glad we are not in the middle of any snow storm even though my hubby would just love that!
I am so in the mood for Easter, can't wait to gather at my sisters house and celebrate with the kids and my family. Always lots of fun!! It is also closer to Scrapfest!!! Oh, I dream of shopping and a scrappy weekend away.. No kids, what I am going to do...Oh yes... SHOP!!! lol. Like a kid in a candy store just better!!

I was visiting the Simply Scrapping Crafts Group.. Altered Gift Home Group and one of the wonderful part time designers (Jennifer) made a weaved basket, hers was just stunning.. you will have to check it out. Well I just couldn't sleep Saturday night and at 4 am you would have found me down in my craft room making these.. really easy and lots of fun. Just one sheet of coloured cardstock cut into 3/4 inch strips.. 11 strips in total. and I used 7 to weave the main frame and 3 to weave the sides.. double sided tape to hold it all together , curled the tops and added the handles.

To decorate I use the Sweet Thoughts Of Spring Ippity Stamp set.. P E R F E C T !!!!




Coloured in all the images, paper pieced them and added them to my little treat baskets!! How cute is this!! I just loved it!!

Here is the Pink one...


I also wanted to do one in the theme of last weeks challenge and did this cute Green one..


I must say I just love these Ippity stamps and all the different things you can use them for other than cards.. If you want to purchase any of these amazing kits just go check out a Ippity Chick on the Ippity Blog.

While you are at the Ippity Blog.. you will have to check out what the design team has come up with for this weeks challenge.. I am sure it will be a great one. They will also have the grand list of participants taking part in the weekly Monday Ippity Hop... can't wait to check it out myself.

Hope you all have a very wonderful Monday,
Hugs,
Angie
