Happy Tuesday!
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend and for those of you who are watching the World Cup, I hope the team you are routing for is doing well. My DH is so excited that the Netherlands are currently in good standing, but sorry to say that England is not!
So, are you all ready for the next MMSC sketch? I sure hope so as it's a great one, and I have to say I had so much fun with my card this week, but before I get to that, let's say Congratulations to the winners this week

My card this week is using this adorable image from Stamp and Create which was kindly sent to me from the very talented and sweet Lovely Linda..Thank You Linda! I had wanted to make a special card for my sister Candy for all that she's done for me over the last few years, to let her know just how much I appreciate her. I colored the image in copics and chalked around the edges.
This is a double easel card inspired by my friend, the talented Elise. If you have not checked out her cards yet, whatcha waiting for? Go check out her blog, you won't be disappointed and will get tons of inspiration there, I promise, oh and she has blog candy until June 23rd too! Thanks Elise! 
As you can see I put some stitching on my card and lots of pearls and flowers.
This is the second easel slide out part
Here is the card when it's completely open, isn't the design cool!

  4. Hi Charlotte!

    This is so pretty! Great coloring! If this won't make you smile on a rainy day then nothing will!

    Norway did not make it to the WC (this time either) so I don't follow. I just get the scandals trough the news. Looks like France have made a bad impression this year.


  5. Wonderful coloring on this sweet image and your attention to the fine details make this a truly amazing card!
