How did we get to Friday so fast this week? Man yesterday I thought it was Tuesday, then thought duh... no its Wednesday. Then last night found out no it was Thursday!! Man... what happened to my week? I have been working a lot around the house, and birthing babies... so I guess I just lost track of the days...LOL
So today is Friday! And that means Just Magnolias time! This week they are asking us to make an Easel Card. I have been drooling over these on the blogs, and really wanted to make one. But just didn't take the time. So the challenge was perfect for me, now you will be seeing a lot more of these from me! They are fun!
So here is my very first Easel Card!
I love how they stand up! What a wonderful way to display your "art". A real gift of a card!
I went through my images and found one that had flowers to match my pattern papers, love her basket full, don't you? I colored with my Copics - to match the papers. Speaking of papers... mmmm ... loving the new DCWV Rustic paper stack! My kind of papers and colors! I found two patterns and created my top and bottoms - sewing everything down with a zig zag stitch.
I then had to play with my new Big Shot Pro you know :0) So I pulled out a few of my old Sizzlets and dusted them off - I cut out one set of corners, then two sets of buttons and Thank You sentiment with flower - one in the dark peach card stock then a second in the green. The button has been tied together with twine, and then the corners and flower center I added some bling with some light green rhinestones. I highlighted with white gel pen.
Now you know you are wanting to try one of these cards right? They are really fun! Pop on over to Just Magnolias Challenge and see all the other DT cards - just gorgeous! And then join us! A great prize again this week!
So what is on your plans this weekend? Me I have to work.. but I am hoping to find some time to play with my new toy later in the weekend. Hope you have some fun planned!
