Anya Easel Card


This is card I made just for fun. Just me playing with my stash although it does fit in with a challenge. I love making these Easel Cards, so simple and really stand out. I paper pieced Anya and coloured with Promarkers. The papers are BG Indian Summer and the dies and "Mum" were cut out on my MM Slice. Handmade the flower using the Retro Punches. All other bits from stash. This card fits in with the new Crafty Calendar Challenge which has an Autumn Theme.

Well the weekend is upon us and Zoe breaks up today. Jessica and Daniel have already been off a week but at least I get 1 week of no school runs.

My candy is coming together nicely. Just waiting for a few more bits to arrive. There is going to be lots of stamps, (loose tongue now, Anya, Kraftin Kimmies ) _OOPS!!! and lots of other bits and bobs for your craftroom. Hopefully get it on my blog early next week.

I haven't posted my annual plea for Daniel. Daniel is 12 on the 7th November and is on the Autistic Spectrum. he doesn't socialize and loves recieving your handmade cards. As most will know, for the last 2 years I have asked if some of you could send a card for him to open and the response has been overwhelming. He recieving nearly 100 last year. I think he enjoys this more than the presents. Love watching his face light up. He started a boarding school for Autistic Children in Sept and although he misses home, is slowly settling in and we do get him back every weekend. So if you could help, I'd truly appreciate it.
(My email is on my profile at bottom of page)

Now I need to get ontop of the chores and am hoping to make another card today.
Thats all for now, thanks for looking.
