Easter Basket for My Grandson

Hi Everyone,
This is my Grandson's Easter Basket.  I used Cricut's Animal Kingdom for the face and tail.  I covered the spot where the eyes go with hard plastic so it wouldn't cut them out and used eyes from the craft store.  The eyelashes are from tips that I use in the dental office I work in.  The whiskers are white wire. The tushy and tail is in SVG but, you can just draw three ovals.  I chalked to create the delineation for the legs.  I had to make the tail huge in design studio. I created my own paws (also just ovals). I hot glued it to the basket.
If you want the SVG for the paws and tushy just let me know in the comment section below. 

I'm also adding the svg for the bunny from last weeks post as there was a lot of interest.  
In answer to the question"What paper did I use for the bunny card"?
I used white cardstock from Sam's club (like $7.00 US dollars for 250 sheets)
Bashful Blue Stampin Up cardstock the wheelbarrow was an older SU designer paper
The grass I used from packaging from I don't even know what.
Thanks for the lovely comments!
I LOVE to hear from you all!!

Cute Little House Picture Frame

These are my beautiful Grandchildren,
Olivia and Matthew.
I made this frame from  SVG CUTS called Strawberry Lane. This can be put into a shadowbox frame but I chose to put a magnet on the back and put it on my fridge. This is the first time I've purchased their files but, I will definitely be buying from them again. The files are very organized and you get  a bunch of cuts.

I can't give you the files for the house as they are copyrighted.

If you would like to know the details on either project just let me know.  ENJOY! I Love to hear from you!

 This is an Easter card for Matthew.

Spring Time Card

Happy Monday Everyone!
I guess I'm getting anxious for Spring!
This is my husband's Easter Card.  I tried not to make it feminine.How did I do?  I found this stuff at Hobby Lobby called Triple Thick brush on gloss glaze for the clock pole.  It's similar to Stampin Up's Crystal Effects but much less expensive.  Now I have to put it in something to help me keep the bubbles out of it.The post is from the Cricut Christmas Noel cart. The clock is an SVG file.  The clock face I printed from the web and used S.U. markers.  The bird is a Martha Stewart punch. The flowers and stems are punches and the centers are pearls.  The words are from SCAL. The silver paper for clock is from SU.  The close up picture is the true color. I normally use pastels but liked the way these bright colors came out.  The blue is from Hobby Lobby single sheet section.

Favors for First Holy Communion

These are favors I'm doing for a client for a
First Holy Communion.
I used  Martha Stewart-Double Arch Large 
Punch Around The Page Set for the handle.  
Cricut-Tags, Bags, Boxes and More  
Popcorn Box set at 6".  
The crosses are Michaels 8 pieces 
"Jewelry Essential Findings" Charms 
found in the Jewelry Aisle.
White satin ribbon.  White card stock.
I punched one side of the paper for the handle then 
I measured by eye, leaving space for the ribbon 
with wriggle room for imperfections and then measured
the amount I would need for the punch design 
and punched the other side.  
It is put together with terrifically tacky tape so it's strong enough for candy.

Thanks for looking.  I LOVE to hear from you and would enjoy seeing your projects.
