Crazy for Challenges Week 10 - Easel Card


Hi everyone and welcome to our Crazy 4 Challenges blog.

It is a new month which means a new hostess bringing us all the challenges throughout the month. Our November challenge hostess is Me ..... Frances Byrne. I hope you enjoy this months challenges as much as you have the past couple of months challenges.

Our Sponsor for the month of November is Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. This is a fairly new stamp company and their stamps are amazing. If you haven't seen this company before you might want to check them out.


Being the first Challenge of the Month, this is our Prize Challenge. One lucky person will win their choice of three images from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. The winner will be announced next week when we post our new challenge.

OK now for this week's challenge. Our challenge this week is to create an Easel Card. If you haven’t seen these before you can find the directions on how to create one of these here and here. These are really so easy and lots of fun and I love being able to show off the front and inside of my card at the same time. Can't wait to see all your creations.

If you would like to play along all you have to do is create a card/project and upload it to your blog and/or to your SCS Gallery using the keyword C4C10. Don't forget to come back here and link it on Mr Linky so that everyone else can see it too.

Our Generous Sponsor, Kim Reid played right along with us this week!



Now it is time to see what our design team have created for you all this week! Don't forget to hop over to their blogs and show them some love!

Looks like I am on the list twice, the first time it said it wasn't working so I re-entered. You will need to erase one of them. Thanks
