My 1st Easel Card

I've seen quite a few of these on peeps blogs so I stayed up into early hours of this morning trying one of for myself. They are so easy to make and I think I may be hooked on them for sometime.

Mine is a 6 x 6 and have used BG Granola. Edwin was a Rak I was sent but after colouring him in with Copics I realised he should be sitting on something. I cant draw stick men but attempted a tree branch. I'm hoping you can make that out for yourself!!! lol. MS Lattice Punch and Tags and "Brother" cut out on my MM Slice. This is my alltime favourite Die Cutter and am slowly building up my collection of cartridges. Have added 3 gems to stop the card from sliding and it seems to hold it up fine.
This fits in with the Magnolia - Licious - Easel Card, Stamp With Fun - Sketch, Creative Inspiration - Family, Everybody Art - Shapes or Punches

Hubbys in Paris on business for the day, so guess who's driving the Porshe!!! Think it kinda suits me - LOL...........But musn't get to comfy.
Bring on the weekend
Thanks for looking!!

sorry about picture quality, pretty grey here today
