Mothers day bucket

Hi again everyone! This eve I got myself into gear to start on my mothers day pressies, helped along by the Anya Ink challenge! It was for anything but a card and this is what I made (I have a thing for galvanised buckets lol!) All I have to do now is make mums card!!

I have used a galvanised bucket painted with acrylic paint, ribbon from my stash (I think it was off a nice smelly Lush box!), the trimmings are papermania capsule papers punched with martha stewart doily punch, roses from mulberry crafts, Miss Anya stamp coloured with prismas, computer sentiment and choccies from Tescos! I got 4 bars and a bag of hearts for less than £1.60 and enough to make buckets for mum and mum in law!

Thanks as always for coming by to look, I hope someone will grab some inspiration! I also have big buckets like this which the kids gather eggs in at easter, I will try to remember to post pics when I turf them out again this year! Hugs to all xx
