Take a Bow...

This easel card is the second of three cards I'll be featuring at Scrap-A-Doodle Doo on Saturday, March 19th, from 1-4... This "Fancy Folds" class will showcase the Tri-fold shutter card posted earlier today, this easel card, and another format using the Cirque line from Graphic 45... I just haven't figured out WHAT kind of card to make using that fabby paper, so any suggestions would be appreciated! :)

Yummy Graphic 45...

I know I'm probably behind the times with the Once Upon a Springtime pack from Graphic 45, but I have had NO time to play with my goodies (gasp, I'm still drooling over Steampunk! lol... Everyone else has moved on to Le Cirque and Curtain Call!!)
BUT here's a sneek peek at my next class (March 19th) at Scrap A Doodle Doo, where we'll tackle some Fancy Folds (e.g., the Trifold Shutter, Easel, and... TBD lol!)
Now to crack open my Curtain Call and get cracking on that piece of the puzzle... yum!!

Love is in the air...

Actually, it's ice in the air today... Stuck home again due to a CRAZY ice storm that's STILL going on... I am SO over this weather! We have had the snowiest January in like the history of Januaries, and February is not starting out so hot either (no pun intended!).

BUT, with February comes all the lovey dovey stuff associate with Valentine's day... (Yuck)

I may not be the most romantic of women and I truly dislike flowers on VD (when I was in college we actually would go out for lunch or dinner with a group of friends to boycott "VD")... BUT the concept of love is still all well and good lol...

SO, I have been trying to empty out my stash of hoarded stuff... I have SO much scrap crap lying around that needs to be used. Not trashed, just used. Especially with CHA stuff arriving every day, lol! :) So, I'm on a mad dash to use all my pretties up over the next few weeks so I can make room for new stuff!
This card was made using a piece of transparancy that I've been hoarding for over two years... Do you ever do that? Hold onto something pretty cause it's almost too pretty to use? And then realize years have past and you never used it? I still get a nervous feeling in my tummy when I use my really pretty G45 or Webster's Pages papers cause I'm scared to finish 'em off... but there's ALWAYS something new! :) Ugh, I have GOT to get over it and just CUT!!

WELL, this card is full of "old" stuff... the transparancy is one I got from Bad Girls FOREVER ago, the lace edge is also from my Bad Girls days... and the "Love" sentiment was from Creative Memories, which I stopped selling over a year and a half ago as well! :) So there goes me cleaning out my stash! :)
Because it's a "loving" card, I'll submit this one for Charisma's challenge...My darling Leah is on the DT over there and they have a Valentine's Challenge going on for the next two weeks, so head on over to play! :)
