Another Easel




Hi there folks,

I am back from playing in the dirt, way out at Rubyvale. I did not find very much of note, but my lovely hubby bought me two rings....two...because I just could not decide between the two!

I meant to post this as an auto-post for when I was away, but, alas, I ran out of time.

This is a card I made for an online Yahoo group and is a secret sister card. I tried to photograph it from a few angles so the dimensional aspect can be seen. The jury is out on how well I managed that! By now, she will know who gave it to her, so all is sweet.

Here is a funny story for you:- (Though, I would have been hopping mad, had it happened to me!)..... One of the girls received her secret sister card...neatly addressed, stamps attached, in an neat space of time. The weird thing was, that it was also neatly slit across the top and the envelope was empty....minus the card! How cheeky is that????

Six ATCs down, forty to go. I think that may have to be my mission tomorrow!

I love easel cards but they seem to be hard to take pictures of. I need to figure out the right technique.

Love this card (: Did the SS include only one card or multiple? I would have had a heart attack! I just completed two six week SS activities and they were a lot of work. Have a great Sunday!
