Pretty Pansies

Hello my friends! I can't believe it has been more than a week since my last stamping creation. What can I tell you, I have been super busy (as always). Last weekend I had a garage sale, even though I didn't have too many people coming I sold quite a bit. The weather didn't help much, it has been horribly windy, we have had in the last 2 days hail, freezing rain and cold cold temperatures. I got a lot of flowers and some that I planted have died, ahhh so frustrating.
My husband  and I are starting a garden and we have not been able to do much due to the weather, I am keeping all my flowers and some veggies inside, I hope they don't grow too much :)

Anyway, today I was finally able to stamp and it feels soooo good! I watched the new tutorial on Stamp TV and I couldn't resist myself and have to try the Basket.

For my basket I used "Spring Florals" for the image  and "Inside & Out" for the sentiment. I got the scallop ovals with scallop scissors. The ribbon on the handle was stitched onto the CS and also I stitched every square and rectangle panel, I love using my sewing machine :)

I am submitting this project to the Stitching Challenge over at Stampin' Sisters in Christ
