...thinking of you....


This has been such a crazy busy day...running kids here there everywhere! I totally love it...one day they will all be gone and I will miss these days! I was able to sneak in the craft room and get a little creative. I have to say that easel cards are one of my favourite designs...so I thought I would try something a little different and make the top part an arch. This wonderful "White Queen" from the new digital Spesch Stamps company is so perfect I thought to have her in her own little garden. I hope it looks ok! To create my arch I cut a piece of cardstock into a rectangle and then placed a dessert plate on top and traced an arch. Voila it seems to have worked!

I am going to put this easel card into Flutterby Wednesdays challenge! I actually found a butterfly punch... so I am good to go!
Enjoy what is left of the weekend....

  3. What a stunning creation. You hope it looks okay! Girlfriend it looks amazing. Looks like something from a Disney movie! Such soft pastels and how creative of you to change up the easel to form an arch. Tracey knew what she was doing when she plucked you to be on her team, just wonderful!

    Thanks for the head up re the Flutterby Challenge, new to me. I did go ahead and post my card to the challenge.

    Bravo Christine, outstanding!!!
