This is my card for this weeks Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge...this weeks theme has been chosen by my design team buddy Gina and she has chosen a brilliant theme of an EASEL CARD...ooh errr misses...I panicked when I first saw the theme and thought...what the heck...thanks to good old Mr Google though I managed to find a tutorial for this card here...this is a super cute 4" square easel card and thank you so much Gina for picking this theme...I really enjoyed making this card and all I need to do now is try and adapt the size so that I can make some bigger easel cards lol!

You know, I haven't been able to make that easel card yet but I like yours. Putting the circle and scallop behind it adds such a nice touch to it. The paper is so cute and I love that little image. Snowflake is a great touch! Thanks for providing that tutorial Donna; I'll have to try it.

Oh god I'm having such a senior moment, not sure if I left a comment when I looked at this earlier today!

If I did I'm sure I told you how fab it was and that I love the huge scalloped circle with the sentiment and the colours and image and all.

If not - all the above!!!
