Basket Builder Easter Card


My childhood, like many, is filled with Easter memories of new dresses, Easter hats, and finding eggs to fill our baskets.  My kids enjoy this particular tradition at their Great Aunt’s house where there are almost literally a gazillion eggs and a big group of cousins scrambling to fill their basket first.  It is truly a celebration of life as you watch the biggest kids step aside an easily found egg to grab a more hidden one in a tree, or watch as the youngest sits in a pile of plastic eggs just happy to run his fingers along the grass and smile. 

When I saw the basket builder bundle I was so happy.  It so beautifully captures all the fun that happens on the afternoon or very early morning of Easter.  And, it so perfectly captures those moments of childhood where a child will be dressed in probably the finest church clothing they will wear all year scrambling on the ground to get the last egg with not a care in the world.
