Hello everyone, and welcome to "It's A Basket Case" Blog Hop hosted by Rhonda!

So are we all having fun and being inspired?  If not, you must be starting with me and haven't yet visited the other hop participants!  Well, if that's the case, after leaving here (satisfied, of course) you're in for more, more and more!!!  For the complete line-up of the wonderful bloggers offering great crafty projects, and to even pick up some candy along the way, please see the list on my side-bar to your right of  every blog participating in this hop.  You can't miss it, they're listed under the pretty, colorful Easter Basket picture; click on the blog's name and be directly linked to that site.  Now, while you're here let's have some fun!!!

For my project I am sharing with you a different kind of Easter basket.  My little working bunny here is the kind with the job of normally being pulled from a magician's hat -- but he is a still a bunny and like he says...

"I'm off for Easter!  The magician is not needed, I can pull myself outta this hat -- here I am!!!"

Materials used:

Magician's Hat:
Chipboard (cereal box)
Silver Cardstock 
Star Punch 
Loopy Chenille 
Wiggly Eyes
Black Wire (used for whiskers)
Ribbon Bow

Bunny's Wand:
Dowel Rod
Silver Cardstock Star Punchouts
Black Paint

This little guy is stuffed with a chocolate bunny, marshmellow eggs, and all kinds of Easter candy; he'll definitely bring magic to somebody's Easter Day because there's more in this hat than just a bunny!

Now you know this hop runs today and/or tomorrow and everyone visiting me on this hop can post a comment to be automatically eligible for my little candy package:

"Flutter Sublime" Frosty Lace Cardstock
Sweet Blooms Colorbok Foil Mats
"Bling It" Designer Rhinestones
Hampton Art Rubber Stamp
Blank Greeting Cards and Envelopes 

The winner will be determined by random.org and will be announced on Monday, April 18.

Thanks for stopping by!!!  Again, have fun and enjoy all the great creations made for your pleasure by some wonderful crafters!!!  And, good luck on winning the blog candy(s) too!

I'll be seeing you!
