Challenge 104 at CYP

Hello, Friends and Happy Monday. It was like summer here yesterday with 80 degrees. That is really unusual for Colorado at this time of year and today it is cold and windy. Hubby left for New Mexico Spaceport for a rocket launch on Friday so the dogs have been sulking all weekend. Dana misses her daddy. Here’s a photo of my puppies.
Of course, they aren’t puppies by any means but I call them that. They’re actually seniors...Dana, the Mantle, turned 9 in December and Dante, the Fawn, is now 8 years old as of February. You wouldn’t know it though cause they run and play like puppies. The average age for Great Danes and most Giant Breeds is about 8 years but they can live 10 - 12 years old. These two have been very healthy...knock on wood.

Our new challenge is up at Craft Your Passion and this week our theme is “Dots and Stripes.” Our wonderful sponsors this week is A Day for Daisies, Bunny Zoe and Scrapper’s Delights.
For my project this week I made a sweet Easter basket with my image on two sides of the basket. The image is from A Day for Daisies called Spring Rabbit. My DPs are from We R Memory Keepers and it is dots on one side and stripes on the opposite side.
I used a tutorial from Archiver’s for my basket. You can find it here. They have some very inspiring project ideas on their website and I love to browse.

I colored my bunnies with Copics: V17, V15, V12, Y18, Y15, Y11, R85, R83, R81, G24, G21, G20.

Designer Papers – We R Memory Keepers
Punches – Marta Stewart
Ribbon – American Crafts
Pearls – Recollections

I’m entering this project in the following Challenges:

Make It Monday – Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by to have a look. I hope you have a great week!

Oh Cathy,
Your pups are adorable!!! This is exactly what I grew up with. We had two of them and they were absolutely the best playmates to have around. Duke and Grettle were their names. Gosh, seeing this picture brought back memories. Do you remember the cartoon that used to run in the newspaper, Marmaduke? LOVED that cartoon. Anyway, enough chatter, love the pictures and the basket is FANTASTIC!!! Gorgeous layering and that ornate handle, so wonderful.
