Something different

Hello blogworld

Well for me anyway!  An easel card, I've only done one or two of these before, but a friend has asked for a special card for her sisters 40th birthday (too close for comfort for me - still not sure I like being 40!).  So I brought out the big guns and try an easel again.

This time I took inspiration from Hazel's blog and gave it a go.  I'm wondering if the base needs more or not, I even made a box for it!

So this is what I did - be warned lots of photos!

Front shot:

Bit closer in:

Side view:

This going to have to be really short as I have my daughter at home with a stomach bug and she is very upset at having to run to the loo at short notice!  Poor thing, she hasn't been at school for very long and already has missed a week and a couple of days.  She has really taken to school too.

Anyway I will go get details on the card later, but for now I know this:

Teddy Bo & Co: - TeddyBea_144, coloured with my Prismas
Patterned paper: Daisy Bucket, Whimsical Ladies - Princess Caroline
Die cut with my Go-Kreate dies
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
Ribbon from my stuff
Sentiment computer generated and die cut with Shapeabilities - Fancy Tags Two.

Best wishes all,

It is gorgeous Sarah, I like to do my special cards as easels. I think it is because you can't buy them in the shops. Hope Emily is feeling better very soon and can get back to school. Debs xx
