I'm sorry I haven't been around much...new job, spending as much time as I can with DD (Dear Daughter) before she goes back to college & lots of get togethers with friends. All is good! Last night was Stamp Club at Karen's, today is my uplines' quarterly gathering & tonight my best friends who craft are getting together. So a real marathon weekend of paper crafting!!
Today I am sharing the easel card I made for my girlfriends as a holiday gift. I had to cancel out of our get together in December due to illness, so I am bringing my gifts tonight. I got the idea of this easel calendar card from CarrollAnn (MrsBoz). She made these a year ago & I loved it so much that I sent away for little pre-printed calendars. My last post was the calendar I made for my office. You can print these little calendars yourself & there are several websites that offer them for free. I did that one year when I made two calendars & it took quite some time to cut and line everything up. So this year I bought in bulk (30) & it was really worth it, even if I don't use them all. I hope to make more for my Stamp Club friends, but I'll cross that bridge later.
(XPedX) & I also get my regular weight Solar White paper & A2 envelopes there. Bravo Burgundy, Early Espresso and Calypso Coral are the other cardstock colors here (Stampin Up). I embossed the burgundy base using the Elegant Lines embossing folder from SU!. The sentiment stamp is an antique from a Stampin' Up set called Everyday Expressions. I love that set no matter how old it is!! The flower is made from the very cool "Triple Treat Flower" single stamp from Stampin' Up that has the coordinating punches. Lastly, I used the pretty Vintage Brads from Stampin' Up.
That's it for me today...I'm off for a fun day of crafting with friends! Thanks for stopping by & I'll be checking out your blogs tomorrow. Have a great weekend!
