My first easel card

Good morning Bloggers. I've been naughty, not had time to come on here much :o( Sorry I haven't been visiting your blogs much, been working extra days! That's the trouble with working in reatail at this time of year!
We all had a wonderful get together day on Sunday and I fed them enough to make sure they wouldn't be going home hungry, in fact we probably all put 5lbs on :o)
We all went to PDA at Langley mill for some retail therapy. We did leave a few bits for anyone following LOL.
I didn't make one card on the day but I did borrow some of my friend's stamps and did lots of stamping and heat embossing :o)
Anyway, I digress. Pauline showed us how to make easel cards and I made this one the next day. As you can see I used my lovely MME for the base card, own photograph and artwork for the topper and did a bit of punching for the snowflakes, the wooden Santa was from stash. It is one of a set of commissioned cards I am working on :o)

So glad you all had a wonderful time! Love the picture on your card, and also love the pedestal style. I've been meaning to try one, and now you've got me inspired! Thanx, great card!
