I've been tagged

Miss Holly tagged me. I am suppose to tell you 7 random facts about me. Gosh that could be hard. Then I am to tag others. So lets get started.

1: I love to craft, stamping, scrapping, tole painting, quilting, paper piecing to name a few. I think I have dabbled in most all of the crafts out there but these are my favorites and what I stuck with.

2: I enjoy camping with my family. We still have a tent but someday I hope to own a camper so it isn't so hard on the body. It's rough getting old!

3: I live within blocks from my parents so I can visit them whenever I want and not have to travel far. I need to do this more often.

4: I have 2 sisters and 1 brother, all live within 10 miles of me. My brother is the furthest one and one sister lives a block from my parents and one within a mile.

5: I love the holidays, I grew up in a fantasy world, the house was always decorated for the holidays. Mom really got into them and did several rooms for each one.

6: Like Holly my hubby thinks my major 3 food groups is Chocolate, Chocolate and Chocolate. The richer it is the better I like it. And yes I could live on Chocolate!

7: I love Alan Jackson, all his songs are the best. Of course his good looks and nice body helps a lot too! "wink" "wink"

Now for the rules and who I am tagging.The rules: Link to your tagger and post these 3 rules on your blog. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Here are the girls I will be tagging:

Blogger 403 Forbidden
Apparently last night some Blogger / Blogspot blogs returned "403 Forbidden" errors instead of the publisher's content. It's Blogger's issue, not ours, but if you were affected by this go to the Newsletter Center for your blog, switch to manual distribution and then send the posts you want via our on demand feature. Then change back to automated distribution (and let's hope that whatever ailed Blogger last night is now working again).

Peter Cottontail Nosey Bunny

Peter is a nosey little bunny and about to fall in the Easter basket. See he has already booted out some of the eggs. Naughty little bunny. Here's hoping we all have a better bunny stopping bye our house delivering the goodies.
Also don't forget about CBC6 Chrissy's Belli challenge for the week. You have a day or two left to enter her contest. Check out Chrissy's blog here.

Supplies needed for this project:
Summer Sun, Whisper White, Close to Cocoa, Tempting Turquoise, Pretty in Pink, Old Olive and Pink Passion. All of these are run though embossing folders for texture except for the Old Olive one.
Punches needed is small oval punch, 1 1/4 circle punch, giga punch for basket and a grass punch
Small Piece of ribbon
1/4" pompom
1/4 sheet of Summer Sun embossed with embossing folder, glue to main card.
Punch out basket in Close to Cocoa. Now from here I just winged cutting out the handle so have no pattern for this. Just got lucky I guess.
With the WW punch out 2 small ovals and one 1 1/4 circle. Cut down your feet (ovals) some as otherwise his feet is a little to big. Chalk them in with pink for the bottom of his feet.
With PIP, TT and PP cut out from small oval punch. Now these you will have to shape into eggs. I just trimmed mine until I thought they looked like eggs. I have a small egg punch somewhere but he up and left me.
Then Punch out the grass with Old Olive. I did 3 of these and it takes about 2 1/2 of them to fit across the bottom of the card.
Follow the sample shown for the basket, bunny and eggs.
Then I stamped a saying on WW and mounted this to Old Olive and onto the upper part of the card. Depending on your saying your measurements will vary so I am not adding measurements for this.
Hope you enjoyed today's project. He is a blast to watch come alive as your making him. I will be making more of them, most likely in different colors for friends and family. Use your imagination and let it flow.
