A Hello and an Easel Card

Good Morning Everyone, I am still out of town....I am having a fantastic time visiting family and friends......The weather is GORGEOUS here in VA. I was staying with my dad the first part of my vacation and without Internet...LOL I was struggling for sure at night when I usually do all my blogging when everyone is asleep!!! But now the last part of my vacation I am my brothers house that has technology......LOL!!!!

So I thought I would share an easel card I made before I left for vacation. I am sure you have heard of the competition over at The Greeting Farm. We decided with our team for everyone to do the challenge and we would pick our favorite creation to put in the competition. Well.....My card isn't the one that was picked by us but I really LOVE how it turned out. I am giving this to my dad for Father's Day so he can put it on his desk at work. Hope you enjoy and I hope everyone has been doing great this past week!!!!



I also wanted to remind you since it is WEDNESDAY there is a NEW fabulous challenge over at Inky Impressions......To add a charm to your card or project. Come on over and visit the challenge HERE.... We would LOVE to see what you create!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by, Maybe I will get some time this evening to stop by and visit my blogging friends!!!! Have a wonderful day!!!
