Happy Easter Sunday, Peeps!
At the Sentimental Sundays challenge  this week we would like you to use Three or More Punches  (plus a sentiment). Quite an easy-peasy one, so get out those punches and join in the fun!  As always, there are prizes to be won!
For my DT project I decided not to make a card (just for a change), but it could have been the thought of yummy chocolate eggs which inspired me to make an Easter basket. 
 The punches I used are :-
MS Doily Lace border punch.
SU heart punch for the base of the basket.
Woodware circle punch for the sentiment.
Woodware Daisy punches in 2 sizes for the flowers.
Other items used :-
All the papers are from Nitwit's "Egg-stra Special Collection", printed onto cream card.
Nestie circle for the outside border on the sentiment.
Sentiment - my own, created on the 'puter.
Glamour Dust.
Olive Green seam binding - from Wild Orchid Craft.
Mini chocolate eggs - Cadbury's (had to buy a second pack of these as I ate most of the first lot whilst I was making the basket)!!!!
The basket template can be found here:-
I would like to enter the little basket (but not the chocolates) into the following Challenge:-
CES - Spring Colours/Image.

Have a happy sunny week, wherever you are in the world.

Eggtraordinarily perfect for Easter and all this gorgeous weather we have been having Sylvia!
Beautiful use of the punches in more than 3 ways :-)
I think I might be the only person in the world who does not like eating those eggs...even so they don't last 5 minutes in my house either once my boys have spied them with their beady eyes!
