A rare post...

***WARNING: PICTURE HEAVY...AND WORDY...
...AND A BIT LINK HEAVY...JUST, BE CAREFUL***

Yeah, I know.  I'm hilarious!  It's not rare at all for me to post!  Or to have some crazy warning about lots of photos, etc...BUT it is rare for me to post a handmade card for Word Art Wednesday!  Usually I make a digital print over on my digital artwork blog, My Uni-verse, but this time I've created a special digi to share with you all!  Let's take a look at the EASEL card I made.  That's right.  I finally made one!  Rare post indeed!

Here's the card~

For these fabulous challenges~

What do you think of my very first easel card?  I rather like it!  I can't believe I thought it would be too hard for me to try!  If you think this, TRUST ME.  If I can make it, anybody can!!!!  I've used papers by Stampin' Up! and Pink Paislee, ink by SU!, rhinestones from the dollar section somewhere and ribbon from SU!  Oh, and a darling fabric flower by Basic Grey!  AND, I've used the faux pressed flowers technique that was featured last month at Technique Tuesday.  Stop by there tomorrow for a brand spakin' new monthly technique challenge--it's a goodie! 

Oh, I almost forgot, I promised you the free digi!  Yes.  I did!  I made it by me own wee self!  If you fancy it, take it for your own stash! ;)

Here it is~

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll be making a digi print, as well, and posting my thoughts on this scripture over at My Uni-verse.  I hope to see you there, too!  Happy stamping, friends!

OK Mynnette: You've been holding out on us!!! For a girl who really doesn't "do paper projects", this is absolutely STUNNING. I am absolutley in LOVE with this. The scripture is gorgeous, the details are out of this world, and you just made this card POP right off the page. You have impressed me SO much, and I really hope you will start making more paper projects. I'm not just saying this, Mynnette, it is GORGEOUS. I am SO grateful to have both of your entries this week at Word Art Wednesday, and you are SUCH a blessing to us. Please know how much we appreciate you!
Blessings,
