So with that said...our challenge this time around is to make an Easel Card. As mentioned above, all us DT gals have used some of the brand new Sweet 'n Sassy Digis that are available NOW in the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps store! Here is my easel card...
Ok...this is only the 2nd time I have made and easel card, and I really like them. They really are very easy to do, and look soooo cute! What a great card idea for someone that you know will display the card on their desk or table or mantel. For my card I started with the little coffee and donut image from the You & Me digi set. That is right...SET of get a whole bunch of these adorable little images including sentiments...and the best buy them now, you use them NOW! Well, after getting my image colored, I couldn't find the right PP to use with my card. SOOOO....I made my own! I simply copied and pasted the digi image and printed on some pink CS. I love the way it turned out. I layered my homemade PP onto the card base. Next i added the colored image and the sentiment. The sentiment is also from one of the new digi release sets called True Friends. This is a complete set of great friendship sentiments. I know you will see some of them featured on some of the other cards in our hop today.

Speaking of hop...I best send you on to the check out all the awesome easel cards created by the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge DT gals. You can use the links below to hop along with us. Don't forget to leave some love, and play along with us this week!
