Out of the Basket*

Okay, my head is too congested and I am too sleep deprived to complete my tip sheet or do that coloring tutorial for you, sorry for the delay! Here is a little hee hee in the meantime til I can finish up all these drafts in my dashboard...a favorite card from our party on Thursday, peek a boo!
When I added that greeting to "Basket Blessings" I knew it would get a LOT of mileage with so many things you can reveal just above the basket and then perhaps have your subject completely OUT of the basket on the inside of your card. Theresa's turtle from "Little Critters" was an obvious choice to me to go UNDER the basket, it's like a second shell! Can't you imagine the basket slowly moving by itself across the floor, "Toy Story" style, powered by this little guy? LOL! TIP: The basket is cut out and popped up to really give the 3D effect that he is under it. Shadow is W-1 and W-3.

"Peek-a boo" is super sweet for baby cards too, but also any time you need a bit of comic relief! (I need a little very day to keep me going!) Looking forward to more "out of the basket" giggles with "Spring Basket", AND with this turtle, oh wait til you see!
