Cone Easter Basket & A Card

Here are the basket/cones that I'm making as Easter treats my daughter will give her co-workers this week. It's just a little something to brighten their day. As  city workers they never know for certain when they might get a pink slip. DD wasn't crazy about the cone shape, but I told her people get tired of seeing baskets all the time and they would enjoy the change. I know I sure do. You can find the "how to" and a video tute too on  SCS site in the issue #200 of Weekly Inkling, (which I can't find or I'd give ya' da linky).  Some of the others I've made have more work put into them, but this one was the prototype and already had the candy in it.  I'll post pics of the others when all done. Also, here's a card that I made for Easter. The basket image stamp is a Michael's Dollar stamp.  I have a few more to show as the week goes on. Sharon Johnson's challenge Stamp Simply #132 was an EZ PZ one this week. No special colors, shapes, etc., just make something with an Easter theme. I love simple challenges. It means I can do them.
I've been stamping, cooking (I'm on a shortbread kick and made butterscotch walnut shortbread...delicious (recipe from King Arthur Flour Company blog. And eggplant parmesan from here Closet Cooking  and gardening, so it's been a great weekend. Hope your is too.
Hugs & Blessings,
