Knee deep in chocolate chicks and eggs!!

Sorry about the photo forgot to take it before it got dark!!

No challenges yet this week I am knee deep in chocolate chicks and eggs!!! I have been making these little baskets from odd bits of card from my stash and I am filling them with Aldi chicks and eggs... they are the no frills version of this little basket.
The reason being I have made 3 dozen and I am going to sell them at work all proceeds in aid of RED NOSE DAY on Friday.

Hope to find time to catch up with a few of the challenges tomorrow and Thursday evening.

A great big thank you to everyone who wished me "good luck" with the previous card I made GDT member in May for Tracey at Dies to Die For, I am so excited.

I am off to the Hobby craft show at the NEC on Saturday give me a shout if you are going to be there...we must try and meet up for coffee, I am looking forward to some crafty retail therapy!!.

Thanks for looking

Sue :o)

Hi Sue,
Those are just the cutest baskets!!
and I bet they will all go and you'll make lots of money for Red nose day!

Wish I could meet up with you but I'm there Thursday and Friday, don't think my purse and plastic could cope! lol

Hugs, Marlene xx


Hi Suzanne, i loved the title of the post, and had to have a peep, it was the thought of being knee deep in chocolate that did it!! i love your little baskets, they are gorgeous hunny. I should have done something like that for Jasmine for her red nose day event. Might do something if i can fit it in.

Well my friend, hope you have a good day on Saturday, i would have liked to go but not able to this year. Have a good day and hope you are in control of your spending! hugs Linda x
