I have my MOJO back!! Have a Sunny day!

Yes, that is right I have a card to share today.  For a long time I didn't have much creative energy.  I am sure that was due to several factors.  One of the big factors was the mess that my craft room had become.  If I had something that needed "put away" and I didn't have a spot, it went in the craft room.
 My craft room is still full of stuff, but I did get it cleaned up and organized over the weekend and sat down Saturday night and made this card.  It felt so good to make something pretty and girly (always my favorite kind of card)  I have a whole stack of colored images I need to put to use and I am really going to try and do more crafting.  With winter coming I should have more time.
 I am also going to try and do more decluttering. At this point I NEVER use my cricut and am thinking I should just sell it. It really is just easier to use my old sizzix die cutter.  I would like a new die cutter!! I am thinking a craftwell ebosser.  I would love to hear some feedback on that machine, since I have never had my hands on one.
Anyway back to my card. I used this cute little Tilda stamp.
Tilda with Ballet shoes. This is a Twisted Easel Card and it is really pretty easy to make. I made my card 6x6 inches.
I want to enter her in some challenges.

Nutcrafter's Show off your Coloring
Sister Act Anything Goes
Inky Impressions Glitter and Sparkle
Lady Anne's Anything Goes
Addicted to Stamp Anything Goes

  1. I cut a 6x6 card front (I decorate my card front before I attach it)
  2. Then I cut a 6x12 inch card base and scored it in the middle as you would with a traditional card.
  3. Then, I scored one side of that piece cross-wise from corner to corner to make the easel.
  4. Simply glue the card front to the easel.
  5. Hope this helps a little

I couldn't decide in which direction to situate the paper/decorations on the bottom of the card, at an angle or straight on .  I guess there is no right or wrong in crafting.
What did I use?
Bazzill cardstock
Kaisercraft printed paper
Martha Stewart punch
Prima flowers
MF Flowers
Spellbinders die
Chalk Ink
Tilda stamp colored with Copics
Sentiment Stamp-Magnolia

Magnolia Tilda with Ballet Shoes can be purchased for 10.99 and 2.00 U.S shipping!! (international buyers please email me for shipping)
