A Christmas Easel

We have electricity!!! And a new element in the immersion heater, which was what caused the fuse for the sockets to blow. Of course I tested every single appliance in the house to try to discover the fault but didn't think of the immersion till last night. Typical! It's always the last place you look, isn't it?

Here's an easel card I made for a challenge that I missed last week. It's always tricky photographing easel cards! Here's a general view:

and here's the front:

The image is 'Charlotte Riding Reindeer' from Whiff of Joy. I coloured them with Speccies, but once again I've lost the list - I really must get myself organised!

(Last year on hliday in Bridport my hubby bought me a mug with the message: 'I would get organised but it would only confuse everyone.' So true!!)

Papers are 'Pink Christmas' by DCWV. The snowflake is made with a Martha Stewart punch (I wavered from my stash diet for that one, naughty me, slapped wrist!) covered in glitter. The lace is from stash, and so are the gems.

The flowers are mostly Wild Orchid with rosebuds from stash. The sentiment is LotV, with stickles on the snowflakes.

Now things are getting back to normal, hopefully I'll be able to enter a few challenges before the deadline, not after!!

I hope you're all enjoying some lovely spring (or late summer, if you're in the southern hemisphere!) sunshine! Thanks for looking!
