Give Thanks



Hi Everyone!

Today I’m sharing my very first easel card.  I saw the Easel Card challenge over at Paper Playtime and I have really wanted to make one and I finally did. I really like the way it turned out and I’m actually  going to use it as a decoration for Thanksgiving. There are so many challenges for Fall, Fall Leaves and Fall colors that I am entering this in quite a few challenges. Hope you all have a great weekend!


Easel Card - 5"
Cartridge - Stamping
Paper - Recollections

Ribbon - Celebrate it
