"Hi, my name is Andrea but in blogland I go under the crafty name of kanda.
I was taught so many types of different crafts as a child as it was part of the way of life in those days - cardigans were always hand knitted, dresses were sewn and those were skills I'd learnt even before I started school. I made the obligatory cards as a child at school but never really started paper crafting until a few years ago. Now I'm hooked and haven't sent a shop bought card since I started blogging a couple of years ago."
"I was so delighted to be invited to join in as a GDT with this months 1st blogaversary challenge and rather than make a card I decided to do something different with paper.
This basket is made with a selection of papers of varying thickness and finish. The 'cube' base is made with a 12 inch paper so you get a nice size basket that would be ideal for mothers day. The flowers, butterflies and tag are all made with dies / punches and I just added a few gems and a lace bow to finish. If you want any further details I will list the materials I used on my blog."
