Round Easle Card~~



Hi All~

Not very nice weather today for me, it's not cold but just very dull, at least it is dry and thats all that counts in my book!

I am getting quite excited at the moment, as on Saturday May 8th I am off to a lovely craft/stamping faye in Port Sunlight Liverpool.
I went late last year and it was fantastic, cannot wait to go again.
I have to confess I do tend to spend far too much money when I go and I do feel a bit guilty (but that only lasts about 10 minutes and then it's off to check out all my fab stuff!)
My hubby doesn't know all this!! (so shush!!)
I think he thinks I spend about £50 and he thinks thats extravagant~~
Best he does not know the real amount them eh!

Today I have had a go at making a round easle card. Not sure it's worked as well as I wanted it to, and don't ask me why I went for the MONO look, did not start out to do that, it just happened.

I used one of my 6x6 square card as a starting point, and just drew a cirle taking into consideration the fold. I was quite surprised at how well it worked. I think the size is good too, not too big not too small..
I have used co-ordinates background card and have sanded the edges. I then used about three different DP. The stamp is from the kit I used a few cards ago when I did the lovely girls head, well this is the Butterfly form the same sheet, and the tiny one too.
Nestie matt for image and a border with my trusted MS punch, added gems, ribbons, and stickles fom my stash.
I am entering into the challenges listed below:

Oh I think it has worked! Good for you being so creative! Love the stamp and I think it suits the mono look really well.
You do the same as me when it comes to bending the truth a little about how much gets spent at these shows. I have rto sneak it in little by little and lord help me if i've ordered from t'internet and postie arrives when Hubby working from home and i'm on school run. Shudder! Look at it this way, you are only spending what could be pig food!
