Valentine Basket

I made this and filled it with mini bounty bars for my hubby, but needless to say the kids all pinched them before I could take a pic hehe. I did this from the tutorial from the fantastic magnolia baskets that were going around a few weeks ago. As usual I am like three weeks/months behind everyone else. The kids have all been taking turns being ill then all having another turn (poor little things).

Anyway this is card I have had for years I just stamped it and embossed it. The heart was from a cardstock mini pack and I stupidly coloured it red on the other side and it seeped through but she who has little time has to make do. The flower is from wild orchid crafts and I tied ribbon round the handle. Not the best basket you will ever see but I was quite chuffed as I thought it looked very hard and I was juggling a one year old and three year old at the time (impressive I know). hehe anyways the stamp I got about three years ago. Thought it suited a valentine theme. You should have seen my hubby's face when I gave him it haha it was a picture he said oh that's nice if I was a girl hehe.
