Easy Easels at The Crafty Purple Frog

Hiya folks!

Hope everyone is safe and warm today. Well it actually got warmer last night! The afternoon temp was -6.7 but when hubby got home around eight o'clock it was -5.3!! We had another little flurry, nothing to speak of though (phew!) Thankfully I don't need to dig the car out today - me Tesco van got here eventually, three hours later than planned due to their van freezing up!!

Anyways, on to my card today which is my DT piece for this fortnight's Crafty Purple Frog Challenge. We are after Easel Cards this time, nice and easy for you (and me!) I kept mine nice and simple too. Just white card for the base work, with glistening snow writer round the edges, papers from an old Tinker & Co. digi kit, some spare card punched with me MS Iron Railings corner punch, gems sentiment and of course the sheet I used for the image, Merry Season Decoupage. My layout was following the sketch at Truly Scrumptious, but I didn't use the 'pink' option, sorry!

Hope you get to join us this time at The Crafty Purple Frog. Why not pop over and take a look at my DT sistah's creations? Some fab inspiration there peeps!
