Magnolia Easel Card...

Afternoon!! I just got back from Kelsey's Christmas program at school! They are just so cute and this year she had to recite a Christmas poem! She was so nervous this morning but she did a great job! She could have been a little louder though! (She is quiet like her mom!)
Anyways I got a chance to play with another Magnolia image! I have followed a couple challenges for this one! I used cranberry, hunter green and gold for the Roses on Paper challenge, I made a Christmas card for the Just Magnolia challenge and I have finally made an easel card for the Create 4 Fun challenge. FOr some reason the easel card was intimidating to me but when I finally figured out it was 2 sheets of paper it was alot easier to understand!! haha I really like the way it looks. I found these cute little vintage chocolate bars that I thought would add a nice touch to my picture ~ so I had to put them in there!

Paper: Webster's Pages
Inks: distress inks and twinkling h2o's
Accessories: Raffia lace ~ papercellar, metal pieces ~ Flower and Craft warehouse and flowers ~ LSS

*The sentiment is from Cornish Heritage Farms but I can't find it anymore to leave a link!*

Well I hope everyone is getting ready for Christmas! There are only 8 more sleeps til the big day! I am finally calming down as most of my cards are made and sent and the presents are all wrapped! I just need to bake a few more things and I will be well on my way!!!
Have a great night!!!

This is just gorgeous and I hold you personally responsible for getting me hooked on Webster's Pages. I had to go out and buy every single page I could get hold of in the UK, I had not heard of them before I saw you use them some posts back now. Anyway, the papers are yummy so I won't scold you too much for leading me astray! Lol! PS I can't believe how far behind I am with your gorgeous postings but December was a nightmare for me at work, so I hope I am forgiven :-))
