My First "Easel Card"

Hello Friends...,
I finally took the plunge and tried my hand at my First Easel card. I've heard that they are sooo easy to do and I've watched enough videos on seeing them done. So I said, "what the heck"..."Just Do It"! Well when I started putting hand to paper, I couldn't stop myself. I've found another new love. I think you'll be seeing a few more of these from me from now on. I absolutely LOVE how this came out and I got to use one of my favorite stacks from DCWV (Lemon Stack) to make this even more cuter. I am sooo proud of me. I think this is just the cutest that I don't even want to give it away at least not for now that is. One of my BEST Girlfriend's (I call her my SIS) Birthday is Today and she's out of town. Since I have a key to her place I'm going to leave a Goodie Gift along with this card as a Surprise when she returns. Shhhh.... (I hope she hasn't read this due to her too busy celebrating)
I think I'm going to need another pack of that Lemon Stack... I just Love that Paper Pad. Let me know what you think. I have a few other crafty things I'm working on so check back often. I love reading your comments. Smooches...
Recipe:
