My Twisted Easel Card!

Hi everyone!
I hope that everyone had a good weekend with some craft activities included!! I had the time to do a little bit. I am a subscriber to  Mary over at Cardz TV and she had done a turorial on a Twisted easel card, so I thought I would give it a try and It is so simple and darn Cute...  Thanks mary for doing this and I always Look forward to your e-mails!! Enjoy everyone!!
I am Still waiting to hear from Jordanbev5.....for the We love our Hero's blog hop Winner!! I am Going to enter this into  Week #2  Made It Myself Monday.

I used some of my scrap paper and also some of my Creative Imaginations double sided Paper, The flowers are from a blog hop I won a while back With i-rock jewels in the middle, and stickled them a bit...(love Bling)!!! Bee is a charm I had hanging around. Happiness saying is from my big stamp collection, not sure but think it is from my many Inkadinkado clear stamps collection. I think I just have to many stamps when I can't remember,or it is just my shrinking memory...LOL!! I heat embossed the saying and the smile as well. I used my foam dots to raise the smile to hold the easel up, Just need to add to who it will go to!! Thanks for looking and Happy Day!!

We Love Our Hero’s Blog Hop 5/21

Today is Armed Forces Day, so again, this is a hop to support and bring awareness to the works of Operation Write Home . You should have arrived from Kathie..., if not please start at Misty’s.., so You don’t miss anything this wonderful group has to offer. In addition to card makers making cards for service persons to send home to their families, OWH has what they call ‘Hero Mail’. These cards can be any size; not just the usual required A2. They also include a personal note to ‘Any Hero’. We call them Hero’s, because OWH covers all branches of service. These are passed out to deployed hero’s, who might not get much mail, or just passed around to enjoy news from home. Here is more info.

Thank you to All of our Heros, past , present and those who serve on the Homefront as well!
This Is my Second Blog hop ever and I am getting the hang of it slowly!!

This month, in honor of National Scrapbooking Day (May 7th) we will be giving away a Brand NEW Cricut Expression 2: 5th Anniversary Edition to FIVE WINNERS!!!! Yep! You heard me right! FIVE WINNERS!!!!!

I chose the first row down on the right! Sun,Rick Rack And Flower Shape. The Leaves and the flower were cut with My Cricut and Gypsy!!

I took it outside and put it on my fence

So for my Project I found a Fabric Garland Over at, Free and Pretty things for you,   Keren Had made the most Pretty Flower garland with fabric I have ever seen...So I thought I can do that...Fabric is not my Main craft so I knew that It was going to be a challenge for me. I found coordinating green fabric for the leaves, and  for the flower I chose my favorite Color (PURPLE). I chose Cindy loo Cricut Cartridge with the 4 leaves(page.65) with border shift and because they were different sizes it worked out well.they were cut at w/3.25- H/5.13. I used my 12x24 mat and filled it using the gypsy. The flowers were cut From Accent Essentials (page 55)< Accent24> And I just cut all the petal's off...I used Hot glue to assemble the flowers and Cut small peices of jute for the leaves and garland. Bowe's are white baby Rick Rack and the sun is from some old sun paper I had hanging around my craft room. I used a $1.00 Stamp from joann for the sun face and heat embossed it with purple embossing powder. I so would love to win a E2, It could be an Early, Early birthday Present!! Thanks for stopping by and Have A great Weekend!!

I was trying to get something together for it but found that time was running out and really wanted to enter her challenge so I took my bee cards And Added one to my spring has sprung card...I noticed that no one has entered ...and I think it might be due to the blogger problems we had last week...  :(  I am just sharing the cute playing cards I found laying around my house. Thanks Diane for the very fun and Inspiring challenges you have!!

So the next challenge She wants to make is to use a playing card somehow on a project.  This can be a card that you already have in the house or one that you find as a "treasure" somewhere.  I am thinking of a decorative or souvenir type card but any playing card will be fine.

Now, If you do not want to make a card for this to send to OWH or to me, Whom do you consider a hero? Police Officer, Fireman, a Nurse or perhaps a Teacher? Go with it! Just have fun with your project!

Replace the ‘All Creature’ Blinky with the new one on my Blog ASAP. That will give plenty of time for peeps to see it, grab it, and remember it! Again, if you want to offer a small bit of candy, that is up to you, as well as any rules to win will be your own.
