Small Wonders

Small Wonders 2015 front
It is time for Scrapy Land Challenge #13 and it is all about “Anything goes” using Scrapy Land dies. I really like the anything goes and I’m sure you do also. I added an image to to my easel card and it is from Stitchy Bear it is called “Please Me” I do have to say Stitchy Bear Silhouette has some of the most beautiful silhouettes. At the end here I did large the image pretty big you can see so much of the little girl.

Easel cards are really easy to make, but I have been crafting for a long time and I have have from there are a lot of crafters out their that do not know how to make an easel card so I have a link here for a basic easel card and that is what mine is, you also can get real fancy with these easels cards. But if you are a new crafter lets start out with the basics Easel Card.  I hope you enjoy the tutorial.

The main thing is that I getting better. I have missed everyone, so here is my card for The Outlaws Twisted Thursday challenge and the twist for this week to add a doily to your card.
