Easel-y Amused...

Greetings, everyone!

I am SUPER duper excited about this week's Crazy 4 Challenges theme!   I have been seeing these Easel cards all over the place but you guys know me...I play it safe.  I always feel like I'm gonna screw up a new technique, etc. but these SUPER AWESOME instructions took most of the guess work out, and now I'm addicted to this new technique!!!  TOTALLY CRAZY about it, to be exact ;)  You could definitely say that I'm "Easel-y Amused" by this!


I am also TOTALLY psyched because this month, our C4C sponsor is none other than the FABULOUS Kim Reid from KRAFTIN' KIMMIE Stamps!  I fell in LOVE with these images-some whimsically eclectic and some just cuddly cute-so I'm SO excited that she's our November sponsor!!!


I used Francesca on my card today.  I ADORE her and had to scoop her and Charlotte up as soon as they were released!   I colored her up with my Copics and since I love the strawberries on her dress, I used my Doodlebug DP that I had in my Taylored Expressions Berries and Cherries Key Ingredients kit.  It goes perfectly with this stamp, don't you think?

I can't wait for you to see the rest of the "CRAZIES" (as I call them) today and see what they have in store for you today!  They are:
Mercy and Lori will be joining us again next week....lurrrve you crazy girls!


Be sure to head over and add your name to Mr. Linky on the C4C BLOG this week to play along!  We can't wait to see your take on this fabulous and EASEL-y created Easel card :)   Have a spectacular weekend, all!
xoxo  ~Jess
