Taking it easel!

Did you like the title!!! Firstly, I must apologise for the photo, the light is terrible at the moment so it really doesn't look good at all. This card is specifically for the challenge at Totally Tilda because I love easel cards and of course the gorgeous Tilda - I have my bestest crafting buddy Dawn to thank for this image - thanks hun. She has been coloured with Inktense water colour crayons and glittered up!!!

The close up is just as bad!! The papers are left overs and have been in my stash forever as has the ribbon. The sentiment is from a Fairy Doodles stamp set. My ever present nesties and a borderability have finished the card off.

We have been sort of snowed in for a few days. I say sort of because it is just our cul de sac - the rest of the roads are fairly clear except for the main roads to work - but I didn't have to go in today. I don't have to tomorrow but I need to make up some time. At least if it is really bad I can stay at home and not loose annual leave. By the way - did anyone in the South West hear the thunder last night??? I thought our next door neighbour had been blown up it was so loud!!!

Anyway back to business - here are the challenges I am entering:-

All That Scraps Magnolia Challenge - Winter where you live,

Stamptacular Sunday - Treeemendous,

Alphabet Challenge - H is for Hats,

Move Along With the Times - Let it snow,

The Crafty Pad, Allsorts Challenge, Aly's Sunday Challenge, Creative Friday and Crafty Sentiments all have an Anything Goes theme.

Let me know you have stopped by - I love reading your comments.

Thunder!!!! No way, baby sis obviously didn't hear it in Plymouth or she'd have said and I didn't are you sure you didn't dream it lol. My sister said your roads have been gritted, our's are an ice rink as we've had no gritters except for on the M5, flipping stingy council.
Anyway that's the weather dealt with lol, your card is absolutely gorgeous Ali, sooooo sweet.
Keep safe and warm hun, there's more forecast for us on Wednesday

Hi there

I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response .

I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the Christmas preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and wonderful holiday time
