A Basket of Love

"A tisket, a tasket, we have a little basket" over at the Hambo Hoedown today.  It is so cute and can be used for so many occasions: get well, sympathy, thinking of you, Valentine's Day, birthday -- LOTS of things!  

I decided to make my hearts in a rainbow of color and added complementary flowers by Prima.  Part of the Hoedown challenge for today is to also use flowers and lace and make a creation for a special woman in your life.  Well, my mom's birthday is this Saturday, and this is her birthday card!

I used Copic markers to color my hearts and basket, and then added Spica Glitter pens in the same colors to each of the hearts.  Take a close-up look here (click!):

Come and play along with us! There are FREEBIES every week and tons of fun at the Hoedown! Click HERE to see what the other Bacon Bits created today!
