At Ease-l Crafters!

LOL...did you see what I did there will my title?? That should give you a hint as to what this fortnight's challenge is all about but before I give you the details I want to thank you for your stunning entries to our WOW challenge...they were WOW in more ways than one. Make sure you check our Challenge Blog to see if you were a winner of a prize or Top 3.

We have a fabulicious challenge for you from our Kath - Easel cards! I think these scare a LOT of people including one of our Ladybugs and even I am a bit wary of them myself, mostly because they never turn out the way I have visualized them in my head!!

We've all used a Magnum and/or Magnum & Lily image some of which are available as digital images or cling stamps and are so fun and sassy....especially that Lily! I've used Cat Flu digital image and Lily as always has the upper hand with Magnum lol.

Have a look and see what you think...

I hadn't made an easel card in ages so did a bit of research online and came across this style but as I made this card WEEKS ago I can't find who I can give the credit to. When I find it I will link to her blog. Anywho, it was really easy to make which is the main thing! I printed and coloured Cat Flu with my Copics, cutting out the image with my MFT circle stitch dies. There is WOS on the kleenex box, head cooler thingamajig (brain freeze moment) and Lily's thermometer. I used a SU! button I've been hoarding and created the sentiment on the computer.

Here's a side view. Next time I might add a corresponding piece of pp down the middle but I quite like the kraft cs showing. 

The Ladybugs have got some brilliant makes for you so please make sure you check out their blogs and leave them some love. 

Don't forget we have a new release coming!!! Grab the banner below and spread the word

Now for Coen's Corner lol. Nicole is still struggling with going back to work. She misses Coen so much so Grandpa, Coen and I took the train into Glasgow on Saturday to surprise her and his daddy. Coen LOVES the train. We have a station less than a minutes walk from our house and it runs along our back yard. I'm sure Coen can hear it from the stop before ours because he gets super excited and starts talking gibberish lol. If he's in his walker he'll race to our patio doors to see it coming into the station. 

This is Grandpa and Coen on the train...

Posing lol

Nic was over the moon to see her little guy and kissed the face off him lol. Afterwards we had lunch in Buzzy Wares in Princes Square...

On Sunday Nic, Coen and I went to Rouken Glen. Here he's wearing his new outfit Grandma and Grandpa bought him...

That's it from me for today. I've got a list a mile long of things to do for this week and I've only ticked a couple of things off. I hope you have a fabtastic Tuesday and look forward to seeing your Easel entries!!

Catch ya later x
