Stamp Something - with thanks


Time for a new challenge at Stamp Something, and as it's Thanksgiving in the US next week, our challenge is 'thankful somethings'.  This week we're sponsored by Simon Says Stamp, and they'll be giving the lucky winner $20  to spend in their store.  Also, next week there will be no new challenge, so you have 2 weeks to take part in this one.

The timing of this challenge worked out quite well for me, as my mum rang earlier in the week and said one of her friends has left a huge box of cardmaking bits for me!  Apparently she tried it, bought lots of stuff (as you do) and then decided it wasn't for her... I've no idea what's in the box, but whatever's in it I wanted to do something to thank her.  She said she didn't want any money for them, but wondered if I might make her a few cards... so I thought I'd make this for her to keep and some cards for her to send (when I get a spare few mins!).


I saw one of these little post it note easels while blog hopping... I can't remember where though so I'm sorry if I've shamelessly stolen your idea!   The image is one of the lovely new Simply Sassy stamps from Sugar Nellie - this one is 'luv a latte'.  I've coloured her with promarkers, then added shading and glow using koh-i-noor pencils blended with sansador.  The papers are K&Co with Kraft cardstock.  MS punches for the border and the butterfly.  Computer generated sentiment cut out using the Stampin' Up word window punch.

I'm entering my little easel into the following challenges:

  35. I love your easel card and I would love to make it as a gift. Did you have to add any length for the note pad. I tried to find the directions for it but I couldn't find it. Could you send or post the measurements?
    Thanks,
