This week over at Sew Many Challenges, we're to make an Easel Card.You can find a video tutorial on our challenge blog post. Check out Sew Many Cards for some awesome new images!! I hope to see ya join us this week over at Sew Many Challenges.

Soft Pencil is our sponsor this week and Elizabeth is generously offering a $15 voucher to her store for the winner!! WOW!! You have until midnight EST, May 20th, to get your project entered!

So, I finally got my challenge card done!! Ummm maybe a week late...BUT I combined it with this weeks challenge, so I'm all good again lol I'm slowly catching up with myself and with my planner. Sooner or later I WILL learn how to juggle crafting and everything else I have to do!!
So I've made a Christmas Easel card! I'm usually my own worst critic, but I do have to admit that I like how this one turned out. Hopefully you will too!!

Wish you did live closer so we could craft together would be alot of fun!!!!

Hope you have a lovely day, and enjoy your week!!!

Ooooo as for making time for everything, I find that crafting early in the morning and being done early leaves time for cleaning and other work that needs to be done :) Hope this helps!!!
Happy Crafting!!!!!!
