Good Afternoon, hope you've had a great weekend, we've had a nice quiet one as the boys are off to nannies until Monday afternoon, so had feet up, relaxing and crafting, its been nice but at the same time so strange also, anyway its given me a chance to clear my crafty desk and post some cards onto my blog, starting with this weeks new challenge on FACEBOOK for SUGAR NELLIE, this week I have gone nice and easy and asked the girls to create an easel card, any shape, any colour, any style, just the one condition it must contain a Sugar Nellie Image, so as usual to hopefully inspire and push some of you in the right direction I've created this one....

Image - Fashionista, a Simply Sassy from SUGAR NELLIE
Coloured with - Promarkers and a little bit of prismas
DP - Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby (loving this stack right now)
Sentiment - Computer generated
Flowers made with the EK success punches
Leaves - L-em Punch
And to finish a bit of bling in the centres of the flowers.

There are many different shapes and styles to easel cards now, and I ove the traditional square type ones, but this time i have gone with the twisted easel card, after seeing the card Marlene did a week or so ago, thought it was time I gace this style a bash, and actually I quite like it, so thanks Mrlene for the push in the right direction.

Anyway thats me for just now, off to try and schedule a few more posts for through the week.
