Charisma cardz #10–DT card (very late)

Good morning dear friends, I hope you are having a good weekend so far.  I know it’s unusual for me to post on a Sunday but I am here to share my (very late) DT card for the charisma cardz challenge.  I haven’t been feeling too good for the last few days so I apologise that I didn’t actually share my card on Thursday when I should have.  We have a brilliant theme this week that has been chosen by Lora which is “easel cards” and I really don’t make enough of them so it was a nice change.  Here is my card:

Why are easel cards so difficult to photograph – they never seem to look good whatever angle you take them at lol!  I have used a long neglected stamp from Sugar Nellie called ‘sitting’ and coloured her with promarkers (of course). 

We have three sponsors this week – firstly we have Scrapbook News and Review and one lucky winner will receive a 3 month subscription to their publication.

Our second sponsor is Some Odd Girls and the lucky winner will receive 3 digi images of their choice.
