Evening.Hope you've all had a good day and managed some crafty time?Today's card is one of the card's I made last night which my nan asked for. I'm totally addicted to Easel card's at the mo...not sure you can tell lol,they just look so impressive and different don't they plus I use more stash which is a good thing in my boyfriend's eyes as he thinks I have far too much!lol...i'm not convinced you can have too much pretty craft stash ;)
For this card I used one of the cute Padded paws stamps which was in this year's march goody bag (my boyfriend is the illustrator of this little sweetie). I've not mentioned it yet but if any of you bought the docrafts  Creativity september issue and saw the advert at the back for 'Woodland Folk'...well my boyfriend is the creator/illustrator of these adoreable new character's and I can't wait for you to see the fab products being released in november! I really hope you fall in love with them like I have :)
Paper's are papermania, sentiment is Anita's peel-offs, papermania brad's, various nestabilities and Handstitching.
I'm entering this card into the following challenges -
Stamp Something - Something to Celebrate

Stampavie and more - More than one fold

Saturday challenge - Easel cards

Well thanks for stopping by and for any comments you leave.xx

I love this stamp range and bought the goody bag so that I could get my hands on it. Your cards are superb and your partner is very talented.
