Birthday Recipe Shaped Easel card

Well ............ I have been laid in bed flat on my back for the last few days but today I sat in the chair with my card things on my knee and put together the bits I had ready to make these cards. I just needed something to do !!!! I had cut out the cards on my Grand Calibur using the Go-Kreate XXL dies ........... now I just NEED !!! the new Go-Greate nestable ones that match !!!

Its a friends birthday in the USA this week and I made this card for her. It is a LOTV image and recipe sentiment. The tag is a Doohickey tag, flowers from Wild Orchids and papers from Nitwits.

I have entered this into the following:
Allsorts Challenge - Free and Easy
Try it Tuesday - Flower power
Ruby's Rainbow - Anything Goes
Penny's Paper - Happy Birthday

I liked this design so much I made another birthday one in lilac and a couple of friendship cards; all use LOTV images. The last friendship card (last posting) was made for my friend in the USA, just as a hello, before I could post it I got an email saying how she may be out of a job this week ................ how strange we do things for someone just when they need it without knowing !!! Anyways I thought I would have a few ready as you just never know when you might need them !

Hope you like them too, Happy crafting !!!!
