Sentimental Sundays - Easel card

Happy Sunday everyone

As I write this I am cramped into a corner of my existing work space, as my very lovely husband is moving my desk to another corner of the room. This will me a new and improved craft room with much more space.  woo hoo!!  I can't wait to have everything laid out.  I'll take a picture once its done (it will only be tidy once!) to show you all and to remind myself to put things away occasionally.  Are you a messy crafter?

This week at Sentimental Sundays we're making easel cards.

Kindly sponsored by Sami stamps I made this:

the image was coloured with promarkers and Spectrum noir pencils.  The base I cut out using spellbinders nestibilities and a doily die.  the Sentiment is computer generated.  I used a Sue Wilson Poinsettia die, with ribbon, twine and a button for the bow.
the red mat was another scalloped nestibilities that I coloured with promarkers to match his jumper.  A perfect card for my brother and Sister-in-law for Christmas. (speaking of which I unbelievably brought my first batch of Christmas presents this week... just over 13 weeks to go!)

see you all again soon - please hop over to SS if you feel inspired to make an easel card, just dont forget the sentiment!

thank you for all your wonderful comments, and to my followers.  it means a lot to know that my work is appreciated.  It is my passion and it just gives that bit of confidence to know its good enough to be on the internet!
