HAPPY MONDAY....

Can there be such a thing?  I suppose there can be!


Today's post highlights a May Day basket.  I made this for an elderly neighbor (don't tell her, she doesn't think she is a day over 29).  On the first of May, I will add some posies and a bit of chocolate (she has an affinity for both) and hang it on her door.

I made the basket by weaving two piece of 5by12 dp together and adding a heavy duty ribbon to it.  The tag has a personal message on the back for her....

Make sure you stop over at the Happy Monday Challenge Blog for another great challenge sponsored by Deedee's Digis!!

Thanks for stopping by!
Huggz,
April

What a FABULOUS project, April! Great way to make your neighbor feel special, and so cute in the way you have made it. Wish I had you for a neighbor (not that I'm a day over 29 -- LOL!) Hugs!
