I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend! It's been pretty windy and cold here in Arizona, so perfect weather to sit in my room and craft a bit. The card I have for you this week is one that I made for my husband for our 18th Anniversary. He likes to put the cards I make him on his side table next to his side of the bed, so I figured what better card for that than the easel card. Hopefully he'll like it when he wakes up!

For this easel card, I used the Owen & Grace Wedding image from Sew Many Cards. I thought this image was perfect and tried to color it to reflect us 18 years ago, as well as our wedding colors. If you think this image is as cute as I do, then head over to Sew Many Cards and grab it for your next project!! If you'd like a chance at winning this image, then join us at Sew Many Challenges for our May New Release Blog Hop going on NOW!!
