Easel Card

I'm keeping this short and simple because tomorrow's post with my Cuttlebug Spot reveal will explain more of what has gone on this past week and why I'm so tired..........LOL, it's been an interesting week.

Anywho, I got a lot done today including all 3 of my DT things for this week (Cuttlebug Spot, Charisma Cardz and guest DT at Cute Card Thursday) and then this one super fabulous card (if I do say so myself). I'm not one to usually toot my horn and say how great my stuff is - don't you hate those people who have to brag about how good they are to you? Anyway, I don't ever want to be one of those people but today is a must!!!

I made this card for several challenges:

Just Magnolia - Bright and Cheery

Friday Sketchers
- Amazing sketch this week (heck, every week)!!!

Magnolia-licious Highlites - Instead of the usual monthly sketch challenge it was a template challenge for an easel card. Let me tell you, this card was so fun to make and turned out so stinkin' cute that I see this style of card in my future quite often!!!

My easel card - I need to get a pic from the side so you can see how it stands up:

I would love to hear what you think about this one!!!

I think I am about to head to bed - doctor appointment for me in the morning before work then a long day at work and after being sick (more details tomorrow) a whole day tomorrow will most likely kick my butt!!

As always thanks for stoppin' by and happy scrappin'!!!

I love this colorful card!! So bright and cheery.


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
