Hi there folks, It's Wednesday evening I've just had a wonderful visit from my Son (Kevin) he lives quite a distance from me and decided to visit before the dreaded weather closes in. I haven't seen him in over a month. Oh it was so so nice to see him and his Fiance. They have been together as a couple for 18 years but have decided to make it official, they got engaged on Theresa's 40th Birthday. I am so so delighted for them. We exchanged gifts and lots of kisses because I may not see them again before Christmas.
Not sure yet when they will tie the knot but I now need to go buy an outfit, hat, shoes, bag, etc etc . Well I will be the Mother of the Groom. lol. I'm so excited, my first born is going to get MARRIED!!!! at some stage. lol
Enough of my excitement, I want to show you a sweet easel card with a difference that I've just finished for a few challenges. I made the easel shape using my Spellbinders labels 10 nestie's. for the top one I added a Magnolia doohickey lace doily die, the papers behind the image are from Papermania words pad and are very old. I bought them when I started crafting about 19 months ago. The rest of my recipe is below this post.
The challenges that have inspired this creation are:
Simon Says Stamp Challenge: This week there is a theme of Blue/Silver/White with an amazing prize of a $50.00 gift voucher to spend in the amazing store.
ABC Christmas Challenge: They are having a wonderful Blog hop this week and the theme is to choose a past challenge. I chose the challenge of May 24th which was Glitz with the option of Silver.
Cupcake Inspirations Challenge: Have a wonderful cupcake picture this week for inspiration, I took the icy blue and white from it.
A Crafty Little Place Challenge: This is the last challenge before they move to the new site. The theme this week is Tag it. A Tag or at least a Tag on your creation.
Creatalicious Challenge: This month the theme is a recipe, 5 flowers, 2 snowflakes, 1 ribbon. the prize is amazing, you could win the new set of Victorian Sweethearts Rubber Stamps from Blue Butterfly Stamps
Paper Sundaes Challenge: Anything but no square or rectangles.
Thank you for popping in to visit. I hope you all have a wonderful evening.
