Easel Greetings

O.K., this was a fun one! Between general living and fiddling and piddling with this card I now look up and it's time to cook dinner, but I do love how this card turned out. There are a couple of these challenges that called for easel cards and they said on their blog that they're seeing them turning up all over. I browsed around and there are some really cute takes on the card fold. It kind of sounded complicated at first, but as my good friend says, "I'm getting pretty good at reading the distructions."
I have to insert a little blurb to the girls at Crafty Cardmakers because their challenge is to Stamp Something with option of stamping a technique you haven't used in a while, but I hope they don't kick me out because I just love stamping and heat embossing. I think it really makes your image pop and lends that bit of touch that sometimes just kicks it up a notch. Even though I do this technique a lot maybe they'll let me slide by, no begging intended, LOL.
So---my list of 4 Challenges:
Supplies: Card Blank is made with instruction from Crazy 4 Challenges, Papers: Magic of the Season paper pack-Hobby Lobby, Stamp: Christmas 2009 Peace & Joy-Hobby Lobby, Ink: Ranger Archival Ink: Jet Black, VersaMark Ink pad, Stampin Up: Clear embossing powder, ribbon: Michael's, various crystal stickers, saying on inside generated in PrintMaster 11, pop dots.

Thanks for viewing,
Beverly G

Hehe you'd be surprised how many have forgotten what a heat gun is! Glad you had a go at an easel, I just did my first one too, one of those "doh!" moments when you realise how simple they are :D

Anyhows thanks for joining us at crafty cardmakers, i'm a bit late on me rounds but nearly done! We've a new challenge up if you want to come play!
