First Easel Card

Hi Friends, hope you are all having a great start to your week ahead. Can you believe it's only 25 days more to Christmas. This is my first easel card and do you know what? I thoroughly enjoyed making it. Think I'm hooked for a while, they do take a little longer but the effect is just fantastic, I'm just loving this shape of card. I am entering it into the following challenges:

1. Tellen's Place Challenge: This is the second week of Terry's challenges and she is one very generous Lady, already she has given away free digital images, candy, surprise gifts and more. Do pop along and become a follower and remember to say Suzi sent you. This weeks theme is RED & GREEN - there isn't a lot of green on my card, but I hope its enough.
2. Just Magnolia Challenge: This is the first time I've had the courage to enter this challenge, I always felt that I hadn't perfected my colouring, still haven't mind you!!! but I'll keep practicing with my new promarkers and I'll get there in the end. This week I followed the lovely sketch that was provided.
3. Pile it on Challenge: This week the theme has been set as Flowers & Flourishes. Another great challenge and some wonderful examples to view from the DT.
4. Lexi's Creations Challenge: The theme Lexi chose this week is Shaped cards, I'm hoping that my easel card is classed as shaped. Once again some great DT work to browse.
5. Crafty Catz Challenge: The theme this week has been set by Suzie and it's Angels or Fairies. I have used Tilda with wings, again not sure if this will be classed as and Angel, but I think she is very Angelic, blowing her heart shaped kisses.
6. The Pink Elephant Challenge: This week the theme is Colour me Wonderful, which means - use your favourite colouring mediums. I've just started collecting my promarkers - think it's 30 I have just now so at the moment this is my favourite medium.

I hope the rest of the week is a good one for you all. Thank you so much for visiting me and leaving such lovely comments, they are very much appreciated.
