My First Easel Card!

This is for:-
1. Lili Of The Valley - challenge 48 - Easel Card
2. Papertake Weekly - Buttons, bows, brads and bling
3. Passion For Promarkers - week 41 - Back To Nature
4. Cute Card Thursday - challenge 102 - Green
5. Creative Craft Challenges - challenge 8 - Thanks a Bunch
6. Stampin For The Weekend - Monocromatic

Well we have sunshine today and no snow, now I feel spring is on it's way although there is still a very cold nip in the air. This is my very first easel card and I was surprised at how easy they are, but that could be thanks to the Whiff Of Joy tutorial, found Here. It's my 15th Wedding Anniversay on Monday the 8th March, so this card is for my hubby. We are like best friends and we always say we are soul mates. We do everything and go everywhere together 99% of the time.
Lili Of The Valley got me trying the easel card as it's their theme, and I always do their challenges and the prize of two gorgeous stamps, is just what I could do with, so thank you Lily Of The Valley. If you like Buttons, Bows, Brads and Bling the Papertake Weekly challenge is for you this week. Then you can "Go Back To Nature" with Passion For Promarkers, I'm still getting to grips with Promarkers, i'm not too brilliant, but I haven't given up so that's why I've used them today, I am getting better though. And use the colour Green for Cute Card Thursday which also lends itself to Stampin For The Weekend with there Monocramatic theme. Creative Craft Challenges' theme is Thanks A Bunch and you can interpret this however you wish, so I am saying "Thanks a bunch for being my Husband".

Hope you all have some sun where you are today.
Happy crafting
Tracy x

This is just lovely Tracy, a super colour choice and an ideal image for your anniversary.

Yes, it is still cold isn't it, we have had a hard frost every night this week and the bulbs really don't like the idea of coming through too much.

Happy Anniversary to you and John for Monday.

A gorgeous card - I love those little rabbits! Just perfect for an anniversary card.

You and your hubby sound like my hubby and me. Aren't we lucky to have found the person we really, really want to be with!
