StampFairy Challenge - Christmas Easel

Today's Ramblings: Good morning. I hope you all enjoyed the weekend. I spent Saturday in the craft room and Sunday outside in the yard. If only I had just a few more days of weekend, then I could have a relaxing day too. This weekend coming up is a long weekend - my FAVORITE!!!

Next Monday is "August Long", or "Civic Holiday", or "Saskatchewan Day", depending on who you ask around here. I always call it August Long Weekend. It's really the last official holiday of the Summer.

Today's DT Challenge: The new theme at StampFairy Challenge is a Christmas Easel card. Which is quite appropriate, as Christmas is exactly FIVE months away!!!

This is my first easel card but have always wanted to try one. I know, I know, I am ages behind!

I used Clementine Love {found here} and made her Christmas-y:


Doesn't Clemmy make the perfect Christmas card?!?!? I know it's a bit on the bold side, but that's how I roll ;)


All closed up:
Card Ingredients:
StampFairy digi; KI Memories papers; Bazzill and Recollections cardstock; Square Nesties; EK Success Snowflake border punch; Recollections gems; Dress It Up button; beads; hemp twine.

Please enjoy your Monday and thanks for coming to take a look at my card!!
