Me Again!!
Having spent most of yesterday doing very little at all, I realised, in the early hours of the morning, that Jazz would be quite disgusted to think that life has been put on hold because she has gone.  So.....I have made this card using the sweet image "Wonderful Year" by Mo Manning ~

The challenge this week over at DP2 is to make an easel card with an animal or bird somewhere on the card. Well, it's been ages since I made an easel card and I really do like them, so I decided I would enter the challenge!! 

And you know what - I felt so much better once it had been made :0)

Colouring medium - Promarkers
Papers - Prima Marketing "Sparkling Spring"
Seam Binding - coloured with a Promaker
Sentiment - came with image
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Sprigs - MS punch

That's all for now

Hi Denise,
This is a wonderful card, I so love that Mo Manning image and you have coloured her perfectly and she goes so well with those delish papers. So glad it made you feel better, crafting helps so much and is so theraputic. I was so sorry to catch up on your sad news too, and very all the best to Louise.

Gorgeous card Denise and a beautiful image. I love that you let your creativity express itself even though you have a lot on your mind and many things to deal with.

When I lost my mum, my dad gave me all her craft stuff and after I got over the inital shock at how much there was, and how beautiful it all was I decided I would have to use it and not let it gather dust. Thats when I started blogging - it helped me such a lot. My mum was my best friend and the only person I had ever shared my creations with until then.

And its good for my dad to see my blog and see the things I have made with it :) (even though I have added a lot more to it! lol)

Love the layout and Easel cards always looks so special :)
