Easy as 1-2-3

Happy Valentine's Day...did you receive a card from a secret admirer? No...me neither lol. Oh, there's always next year hmph!

My card on Tuesday was hubby's Valentine's card...probably should have waited to post it today but then I wouldn't have today's card to show you!!! I am super duper excited about it. Why? 1) I've never made one of these before 2) It actually turned out ok lol. I was telling the Ladybugs on the DT blog yesterday that it was a wowzer then realized I set myself up for a fall if nobody agreed but I'm a big girl and I can take whatever they throw at me lol.

Are you ready? Here you go....




Ta dah ...it's a Triple Tier Easel card!!!! I'm a bit bored with my usual square cards and wanted to do something a bit different. I remembered Lyndsey does the most fabulicious tutorials and she certainly didn't disappoint with this one. I'd never seen a TTE card before and apart from looking a bit squint and the pink cs not matching the pink in the pp I think it's a wowzer lolololol. If little 'ol me can do it so can you :-D You get a better idea of what it looks like in the bottom picture.

I used the 3 smallest of the scalloped circle Grand Nestabilities and the matching circles. It does look fabtastic IRL and once I had added the last flower I had a thought...do I have an envelope big enough for it to fit into????? The answer quite simply is no lol. It's just slightly too big for an A5 envelope so I would have to either make one, use an A4 envelope or wrap it like a present.



Billie Bear is just too cute 



What do you think? I really love how it turned out and look forward to making another one...maybe using smaller circles the next time!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Digital Tuesday - Up Up and Away
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - Put Your Heart On It
Papertake Weekly - Hearts and Flowers
Crafting By Designs - Heart but not Valentine

I have a birthday card to make for a 2 year old which I need to post tomorrow at the latest so I'd better get my skates on.

Oh...before I forget, the winner of the Valentine Billy image is Alison Scott. Email me at ladybugcraftsink@aol.com  Alison and I'll send VB by return.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Catch ya later x

Well you didn't disappoint Mrs it certainly has the WOW factor! I quite dumbstruck really - it looks super complicated - not that I think you can't do complicated - more so that Lisa hasn't made one before and she always leads the way on these things LOL!
